  1. Krisha,

    I have a question about Lesson 4! What are some phrases that can help us understand what the helper is telling us after we ask for directions? Such as go right/left/straight, etc.?

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Hi Krisha,

      Would you like to learn more about how to ask and give directions?

  2. E C,

    This was a great course! I loved how there were different levels of expressions but also knowing the easiest way to get by.

  3. Greg Foy,

    I really appreciate this course. It is straightforward and easy to follow.
    The explanations are clear. Doing these complimentary courses alongside the core course allows me to see what I am learning in real life contexts. It also helps give me a heads up about future grammar so when I come to it, it does not surprise me as much.

  4. olmrdmnc,

    Hello! I have a question if:
    ์•„๋‹ˆ์š” (no) = formal way
    ์•„๋‹ˆ (no) = informal way

    Does it also apply to the word yes? like:
    ๋„ค์š” = formal way?
    ๋„ค = informal way?

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your comment!
      ๋„ค itself is “Yes” in the formal version, and ์‘ is the informal word for “Yes”

    • olmrdmnc,

      ok thank you so much

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      No problem!

  5. Festrรฉ Yvan,

    Very usefull. I thought, at first, this would be for real beginners only. But not so, the simplified phrases fo travelers are followed by other versions which could be uttered by native speakers. It equips you with different ways to express yourself. So good. ๊ฐ์‚ฌํ•ฉ๋‹ˆ๋‹ค .
