  2. Sophie Park,

    exactly what I was looking for. I really struggle with my listening skills. I hope this course will help me 🙂 Most of the koreas sources I found on the web were to fast. when people are speaking too fast I dont understand anything. That can be very frustrating. thank you so much for this course 🙂

  5. Elodi,

    Hello, may i ask why the partical 를 is used here 카페를 진짜 자주 가는 것 같아요? Shouldn’t it be 에? I’m confused now and really hope to get an answer for this. Thank you in advance.

  6. Graeme Smith,

    This lesson has been the most helpful by FAR! Aside from the essential lessons which are just institutional for Korean learners everywhere at this point, this series really helped me with my listening, especially having the script with no subtitles put up separate from the lesson itself.

    I still find 이야기 and other all audio lessons far beyond my current skills but I can tell lessons like this will get me there!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you so much! 😍

    Hi… there is some really great content on this site.. this course being one of them.

Sincere thank you to you all for clearly putting a lot of effort into it.

    감사합니다 TTMIK 여러분들 for making this material! It was a suuch a good and super helpful approach to practice everything (reading, listening, comprehension, learning more about korean culture all in one ♡). Is there any plan to make more of these slow korean videos? I will be looking forward! 😀

  10. Ian Paul B. Saligumba,

    Just finished watching the videos in this course and I am so happy that I was able to recognize some words and understand a little without looking at the subtitle. I still have to improve though on my vocabulary. Fighting!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      화이팅!! 😉

  11. Jean Wong,

    Thank you TTMIK! My Korean has improved because of the great audio and video resources that you guys made! It really helps for self-studying! Looking forward to more fun and interesting videos in future😊

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      감사합니다! 💙

  12. Daniel Yu,

    Around what level of the Essential Korean Courses should we have completed to take on this course?

    • Daniel Yu,

      Oh no, I just noticed the Target Level now. I must be blind. Haha. Thanks for all the awesome lessons though! I look forward to working hard at these courses so that I can get better at Korean, and all with the help of TTMIK!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your lovely comments! We hope you continue to enjoy studying Korean with us. 🙂

  13. Joana Pimenta,

    I just finished this course and it was really helpful! I’m comfortable with my listening skills (I can pick up words even if I don’t know their meaning etc) but I still struggle with the Korean sentence structure in a way (since it’s so different from the languages I know: portuguese, spanish, english, french), and having 현우 선생님 breakdown the sentences really helped me improve my Korean in a week more than I could studying by myself for a while now. Are there any other similar courses with this kind of sentence breakdown? I’m currently doing the Intermediate Real-Life Conversations while I go through with Grammar’s Level 8, and I try to do some of the intermediate iyagy’s but I find that I need a lot of brain power to do it. I think in short what I need is a more written based course (I’ve done all the workbooks available as well as the newest ‘Build and Extend Korean sentences’ which was really helpful to me as well!), is there any that you could recommend? Or any tips? 😆 I know journaling is a very common way to practice but it doesn’t really work for me, I usually learn languages by reading a lot (because I’m a very visual learner, even with the grammar lessons I have to be reading along otherwise I don’t catch anything if I’m only listening) but with Korean I find it more difficult to use that technique since I feel like it’s a more complicated language. Are there any books that you could recommend? (I should mention that I’ve also read ‘Easy Korean Reading’ which was key for me to improve past beginner level as well 😅). Any courses, books, or techniques/tips that TTMIK could recommend would certainly help ^^ It’s been a really great journey to learn Korean with this team so far, I’ve always been a bit in and out of learning Korean but lately I have this drive to really get to the point where I feel comfortable with this language so I’m doing my best to not get unmotivated! Ironically, I think this is also my first comment on the website, so I’m hoping that next time that I leave a comment on here I’ll be able to express myself comfortably in Korean ^^ Thank you for all the work you guys have put into creating all these amazing resources!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you so much for your comment. 🙂 We recommend our course “How Korean Sentences Work.”
      You can find the course here—>

      We hope you continue to enjoy studying Korean with us!

    • Joana Pimenta,

      Thank you very much!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      You are welcome! 😉

  14. Michael,

    I was looking for a course to improve my listening and practice what I studied so far because although I reached level 7 I didn’t have much practice with what I learned and did not understand most of what I hear, but after taking 1 lesson on these course (even without part 2) I was so proud of my self of understanding most of it, and when I watched the second part I could understand all of it plus a review on the grammar point in the video, very helpful and amazing course
    thank you

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your comment! ☺️

  15. Hanne Peeters,

    One of my favourite courses. I first did the “easy reading” course for beginners and waited until I finished grammar lvl 6 before trying this one. It makes me feel so good about my progress. Thank you for all the fun and useful lessons and books. When I am done with a book, my family members are quick to claim it for themselves. Everyone here has at least one of your books on their shelf 🙂

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      We appreciate your lovely comment. 🙂 It’s so sweet of you to share your story!
      Enjoy studying Korean with us.

  16. Brenda Avila,

    This course helped me soooo much! Thank you for the great explanations and taking your time to really dissect every word and sentence. Is there a course like this that you would recommend taking? If so, please let me know. I really like getting down to the root of meanings. 너무 감사하고 사랑해요 선생님들!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your lovely words! 사랑해요 🥰

  17. Jan K,

    Its a wonderful concept. I apologize for my english my school days are some years ago^^. This webside is in generell a gift from Heaven for everyone who wants to learn Korean. And its a fantastic way to learn with hearing and someone who explain beside everything you need to know. And i know its a professionel webside but pls allow me to say i never had sutch a lovley Teacher in my school days <3 ;D. Thank you very mutch for your hard work. TTMIK Team 파이팅!!!!!!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your nice words! Keep up the great work. 🙂 We are glad that you enjoy studying Korean with us.

  18. Shade Thompson,

    A fantastic really, really useful course. Teacher Sun’s breakdown of each sentence has helped me understand grammar nuisances – especially sentence endings. Reading out loud and speaking along with stories has pushed my Korean level up significantly. Many thanks.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for studying Korean with us! We appreciate your nice words. 🙂

  19. Angel Ziesk,

  20. ,

    Listening Practice In Slow Korean 2 있으면 아주 좋을 것 같아요. 짧은 이야기들을 마음에 들어요. 현우 쌤의 설명 도움이 많이 됐어요.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      의견 주셔서 감사합니다 🙂 앞으로도 더 좋은 강의를 많이 만들겠습니다 ! 한국어 공부 화이팅 ^^

  21. Alec,

    A great course, I love this kind of format! I’ll come back to rewatch these lessons a lot.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for your review! 🙂
      We’re happy that this is a rewatchable course for you!

  22. Madeline Shaw,

    이 코스는 제일 좋아하는 코스예요! “Story Only” 비디오를 보면 거의 다 이해할 수 있어요. 보통은 책으로만 공부하는데 한국인이랑 대화 하면 길을 잃고 따라가지 못해요. 마치 제 한국어 듣기 좋아지도록 도와주고 싶은 친절한 친구가 있는 것 같아요. 감사합니다. ^^

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      친절한 친구! That’s so sweet! 🥰
      나중에는 한국인이랑 대화 잘 할 수 있을 거예요! 파이팅!

  23. Jonathan Hustad,

    This course helped me in many ways. It is one of the few places where you can find someone talking slowly in Korean. Kyung-eun has such perfect pronunciation that by repeating her my pronunciation improved a lot. My memorization of set phrases also improved. I found that the best way to use this course was for me to listen to the video, watch Hyunwoo’s explanation, print out the transcript, read it out loud, watch the video again and shadow Kyung-eun, and memorize phrases that I thought I would use again. I Watched this course a lot. 저는 이 코스 공부 많이 해서 누군가 재 이름을 물었으면 “죄경은입니다”라고 말할까 무서워요.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for sharing your comment. 정말 열심히 공부하고 계신 것 같아요! 🙂 한국어 공부 화이팅!
