REAL Korean Conversations Explained

About this course

Going to a restaurant, taking a taxi, or buying things in a convenience store are just ordinary scenarios that seem like no big deal. But when these situations are conducted entirely in the Korean language, they can be seriously intimidating for Korean learners. That's why we came up with this language vaccine, which will help you experience such situations and prepare in advance.

This course is based on "REAL" Korean conversations, not just "realistic" Korean conversations. There are no scripts, studio settings, or acting involved. Every interaction is captured spontaneously to show Korean learners authentic conversations between native Koreans. We believe this is the most practical Korean course available, designed for anyone on their journey to mastering the Korean language.

  1. Michelle Barreto,

    Although I’m a level 2 learner and this is targeted to level 3-6, this is so helpful is frankly an absolute genius idea!! Just completed my first lesson and looking forward to the rest of the lesson.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      All the lessons are going to be really fun! Please look forward to them. πŸ˜†

  2. Ian Thirlwell,

    I noticed in the restaurant lesson when the owner ended sentences with μš” it came out as an exaggerated μ•Ό. Is this a dialect thing, or done just for effect?

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      In colloquial speech, not pronouncing ‘μš”’ accurately can sometimes sound like ‘μ—¬’ or ‘μ•Ό,’ rather than a distinct dialect! : )

  3. Ben Hinrichsen,

    In the restaurant video Seung-wan calls the waiter 사μž₯λ‹˜, does he say that because the waiter is the owner or because that is a respectful term? Either way I say we start the term λ‹Ήμž₯ for a restaurant owner. πŸ™‚ λ†λ‹΄μ΄μ§€μš”!

    • Seung-wan Yu,

      Well, I got the impression he could be the owner, but I wasn’t completely sureπŸ˜„ I used ‘사μž₯λ‹˜’ primarily as a way to show respect! Thank you for enjoying the course!

  4. Kirsten,

  13. KT,

    I am a beginner but like to hear real speech patterns. I really like the explanations and being able to read the transcript. My only wish is that I had the ability, as I do on YouTube, to slow the audio a bit until I can grasp the words. Not only do I live in an area of the US that drawls its speech more slowly, I also have old ears. But otherwise this is terrific, more than I expected in the way of being a lesson. Looking forward to the next lessons!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Yay! That’s great to hear you found the speed control feature! We understand how important it can be, especially for learners and those with different speech patterns. We hope this feature enhances your learning experience even further. Enjoy your next lessons!πŸ™Œ

    • KT,

      Update: I found I can slow the speed. I had to expand the video to find settings. Yay!

  14. haniicu,
