TTMIK Talk / Our Trip to the Philippines

Two TTMIK teachers, Seokjin and Hyojin went to the Philippines on a trip, along with some other bloggers from Korea. This trip was fully sponsored by the Philippine Department of Tourism and they had a great time there! Of course while Seokjin and Hyojin were there, they made this video for the TTMIK Talk series, to help you learn more Korean expressions and practice listening.

Enjoy watching the video! Please turn on the captions to see subtitles.

The video is 6 minutes and 58 seconds long, and the PDF file available through purchase is 36 pages long. The PDF e-book contains the full transcript, translation as well as vocab list, grammar points list and comprehension quizzes! (You can see a sample PDF here to check out how the PDF is formatted.)

If you have any questions about the series, or if you have a topic or place that you’d like us to cover in the TTMIK Talk format, please let us know by writing to us at! 감사합니다.

You can get the full PDF package [here].

    Woah!! you tried Exotic Foods??… have you tried Balut?? haha.. Most of the foreigners can’t eat balut.. but it’s good though.. hehe… and also, I want to recommend Red Horse Beer over the Pale Pilsen… it’s tastier and stronger, i think… and also if what you like is just rest along the beach, try going to Palawan… if you like night life, shopping, meeting people, beach etc Boracay will be daebak.. hehe.. but it will be better if you will go to both… just make sure that you won’t come in rainy season :-)…

    • Sarah, are you from Philippines?

  • Hello, Umm, I just wanted to say i enjoyed watch your video but The captions on youtube are NOT MATCH whatever you says.. My son told me many times every youtube aren’t excatlty what they says.. I am deaf woman from Ohio, USA.. I think it would be better check English the subtitles
    thank you and keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Hi! Please do not use the caption that YouTube provides 🙂
      If you click on the ‘captions’ button on the video, you will see three options: English (automatic captions), English and Korean. The bottom two (English, Korean) are the ones we made. Please use one of those two 🙂

    Annyeonghasseyo!!! I’m glad you all had FUN in the Philippines….. I was born in the Philippines but grew up here in the States… good for you all; you all got to see those very scenic views and I have not; that is really something else lol… I do hope one of these days I can do the same in South Korea… I love Korea. I love the culture and its people. I’ve been there once and I fell in love with the country. It’s been my wish to visit again and stay longer…. and hopefully then my Korean vocabulary will be like a pro….
