  1. Cora,

    This course is hard. I am in the middle of Level 2 and its hard to understand what they are saying except “Hello/Annyeonghaseyo” and “Yes/Ne.”

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      It’s natural that you can only understand some of it since you’re at level 2. As your level increases, you will be able to understand more. 한국어 공부 파이팅! 💪

  2. Stephanie,

    After finishing Level 4 of the essential course, it was time for me to finally finish this course as well. I really had a great time with it + and I had fun with it over MONTHS. I started it first when I was in Level 2 and it was SO tricky at this point. I couldn`t grasp the dialogues let alone fully understand them by just listening to it. I felt overwhealmed, but that is mostly because listening is still my “final boss” somehow.

    So here`s what I did (in case somebody also feels a little lost in the beginning 🙂 )
    I worked through the book chapter by chapter, reading the text first, and then listening to the audio course.
    While doing that, I created Anki Vocab Cards with the words and grammar points provided in the book (ended up being around 1200, with some of them being duplicates from other courses).
    Next I spent a view weeks / months studying these Vocabs while gradually working my way through Level 3 and 4.
    After the half of Level 4, I came back to see the progress and BAM, it took a maximum of 2-3 attemps to fully understand each and every dalogue.

    That was propably not how this book/course combo was planned to be used, but it worked out so well for me. ^__^
    Thank you for your hard work and for making learning Korean so much fun!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

  3. Bianca Thalhammer,

    I had a great time with that course. Some lessons were very entertaining. Also the difficulty was right for my level (3), understanding most the first, nearly all the second time listening and still some new words or expressions in every lesson.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for taking this course! Hope you enjoy our other Korean courses! 🙂

  4. Rosalie Daigneault,

  5. Senida Kakeš,

    한국어 대화 중급도 샀는데 아직도 조금 어려운 거 같아요. 그래서 부탁 하나만 들어주세요. 이 레슨처럼 만들을 수 있어요? 갑사합니다 🙂

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

  7. Brenda Avila,

    Just finished this course. Loved it! I am off to do the intermediate level conversations, so I look forward to understanding them like I understood these at the end of the course. Thank you so much!

    • Leo,

      Hi there, I’m can’t seem to find the real-life Korean conversations for intermediate level course? Is it available? Thankyou~ ^^

  8. Tatiana,

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      We are soooo glad to hear that! 🙂 Enjoy studying Korean with us!

  9. Carissa,

    This course helped me train my Korean listening skills! It is really good for beginners as there are not many beginner listening opportunities out there! Not too easy or too hard for beginners.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      We are glad to hear that! Thank you for studying with us. 🙂

  10. Talk To Me In Korean,

    We’re so sorry for confusing all of those who were informed that transcripts can be offered to the Premium Membership users. One of our staffs left a comment with the wrong information by mistake the other day. We hope you don’t get confused anymore. Please understand that you can find the whole transcript of this course in paper books. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. If you have any further questions or concerns with this, please email us at [email protected]

  11. Angel Hung,

    I have the same question as the others. There doesn’t seem to have transcripts for premier members…

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      I’m so sorry for confusing you. The lesson notes of this course only have a few essential expressions and the whole transcript belongs to the paper books. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

    • Angel Hung,

      Thanks for the clarification.

  12. Ruth Schøyen,

    Hi!
    I notice others have asked same question some time ago and TTMIK answer.
    When will the (whole) transcript be available (I am signed in on a Premium–Membership)?

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      I’m so sorry for confusing you and all of those who might have felt uncomfortable. The lesson notes of this course only have a few essential expressions and the whole transcript belongs to the paper books. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

  13. 張鈞翔,

    So…, would I buy the book, so that can I see the whole transcript?

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Yes 🙂 The book has transcripts in it. The lesson notes of this course only have some essential expressions. I hope you understand this.

    • Lidia Kruk,

      Yes, there is no transcript with Premium Membership on this course. For other courses yes, but for this one it’s not available. Maybe this is something TTMIK can look into? Thank you.

    • Asmaa,

      I have the premium membership but I cannot see the transcript 🙁

    • Rachel Allee,

      I can’t see the transcript either, even though I have a premium membership.

    • Cornelia,

      hi, I have a premium membership but cannot see the transcript, why is that?

  14. Festré Yvan,

    My prefered tool so far. With the book you have dialogues, extended vocabulary, grammar patterns, pronounciation tips. It’s very complete and practical. Although I think you need to pass the beginner levels to fully benefit of it.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thanks! Happy studying! 😀

  15. Paula Murat,

    This is amazing! I listened to all of the dialogs, wrote them down and then compared with the scripts on the book. This really helped me getting better at listening and I also learned a lot of basic vocabulary I missed by studying too fast when I first started learning Korean.

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for studying with us! ☺️

  16. Jessica,

    I bought the book as well and whether it’s the book or the audio files, they are both very useful for beginners! I recommend them!

    • Talk To Me In Korean,

      Thank you for sharing your comment 😀

    • Stephen Angeli,

      I would like to download the audio to a podcast, etc for listening while walking or in the car.
      How do I do that
      thanks.
