  1. Tamanna Baksh,

    This looks like a great resource! Would be helpful to have the transcripts in English too if possible. Thanks!

  2. erdene-ochir,

    When I listen to this content last time it was free but now it’s not :(( Why? I am really like this IYAGI. It is very helpful for study.
    I am from Mongolia. Thank you for doing this content and keep going!

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Except for the Essential Korean Courses, every course has belonged to Premium Membership Service. I hope you understand this. We will keep making more high-quality courses and books. 🙂 Please look forward to them ! Happy studying 🙂

  3. Denise :),

    I really like these Iyagi conversations! At first, I found them to be too fast and overwhelming, but I have begun to understand a lot of the things mentioned in the episodes! I find that the Korean transcripts are very helpful when it comes to catching things that I didn’t hear or understand. Also, I really appreciate that they are free! Thanks, TTMIK!

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      Thank you for leaning Korean with us 🙂 I’m so glad that you could understand lots of Korean conversations from IYAGI ! Our transcripts are free if you’ve signed up for a Premium Membership. Listening to each episode while taking it down could make your Korean more natural. Happy studying ! 🙂

  4. Elizabeth Newman,

    그런데… 석진쌤은 진짜 좋은 목소리가 있으세요. 외국인들 귀에게는 표준어보다 석진씨의 사투리가 더 좋은 것 같아요.

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      석진 선생님의 사투리는 정말 매력있죠!

  5. Elizabeth Newman,

    이 시리즈 덕분에 제 실력이 진짜 늘고 있네요…. 와우 고마워요 선생님들

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      실력이 늘고 있다니 저희도 기분이 좋네요!
      감사합니다. 한국어 공부 힘내요! 🙂

  6. Justin Wilson,

    It’s frustrating that the MP3 links are randomly missing from certain lessons like #3. The reason being, I use some external software with mp3s to aid my studies (WorkAudioBook). I did try using Soundcloud savings tools to download the file also,which normally works, but for #3 it doesn’t work. Thank you

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      If you are still having the same issue, please contact us at admin@talktomeinkorean.com.
      Sorry for any inconvenience.

  7. Cliff Boyd,

    Are there any English translations for these scripts similar to the Iyagi Beginner lessons?

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      We only have the trascript for now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
      We’ll see if we can add English translations.

    • Elizabeth Newman,

      사실 자막이 없으니까 더 좋은 것 같아요. 왜냐하면 자막이 있으면 쉽게 컨닝 할 수 있는 것 같아요. 어떤 사람이 진짜 중급이라면 결국 풀 수 있는 것 같아요. 게다가 각각 표현을 이해해야 되지 않아요. 제 생각에는요

    • Elizabeth Newman,

      그러니까 누군가 적어도 70%에서 90%까지 이해할 수 있으면 성공인 것 같아요. 번역기도 있고요.

  8. Afifa Ulfa,

    Hope this very useful for me.. thank u so much

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      Thank you for studying with us 🙂

  9. Jack Fudson,

    안녕하세요 ttmik. 저는 제 핸드폰으로 다음 버튼을 누르지 못 해요. 고쳐주셨으면 좋겠습니다.

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      If you are still having trouble with the issue, please email us.

  10. Theresa Samuels,

    Hi Folks. There is an error in the English above. It should read: “Take your Korean listening comprehension to the next level.”

    • TalkToMeInKorean,

      Thank you for letting us know.

  11. Ebony Thomas,

    This is great to listen to but where are the scripts? I’m still learning and how can I follow along? There is a tab that states that the script is available but I have yet to find it.

    • Majo Chaverri,

      Which app exactly? I found this on Spotify and Sound cloud and the link takes me either to this page or to a blog that looks like an archive that has a lot of resources, but no matter how hard I try, I still can find the transcript I need because is listed with date and the one in Spotify or Soundcloud is not the original air date.

    • Hwayeon Kim,

      Hi, I’m Hwayeon from TalkToMeInKorean. All scripts are under each lessons, and located in the bottom area.

    • Maylis,

      I actually found them on the app but not on the website
