  1. Talk To Me In Korean,

    Thank you for your love!

  2. Sia N.,

    It was really cool reading what other learners thought for their words. I really liked this book. Also thank you so much for making it free, I was not expecting it, but thank you! Also definitely a nice way to learn new vocabulary!

  3. Louise,

    Thank you for this amazing book! It’s lovely to discover the reasons and stories behind various people’s word choices. At the same time, it’s also a great opportunity to brush up on vocab and to practice reading short passages in Korean (with a translation provided, which is a very helpful way to check for accuracy of understanding).

  4. Emma,

  8. Jahnavi Putrevu,

    I’m in love with this book, very fun and interesting to read. The stories are helping me to remember the words. Thank you for this book!!

  9. Wendy,

    I love this book. But I wanted to add my own recently discoverd comparison between words. The word 가방. In my own Flemish dialect the word we use for this item is Kabas. While the last part is different I think the start is very similair. Which I found funny. Considering Belgium is quite far from Korea but we still ended up with similair sounding words.

  10. TTMIK,

    This was such a great read, like all the other books from ttmik. It was very interesting & fun to read from different people, all around the World! How all these people associated specific words with memories and meanings.
    Absolutely fantastic!

  11. Khondamir Karshiev,

    It was intersting how people across the world view words differentry, adds emotional value and creates stronger association, giving unique perspectives on each student and word))

  12. Nicole Araújo,

    such a cute book! great for vocab and as well made as any other work from ttmik!

  13. Sarah Adair,

    Another great vocab book. Like other TTMIK vocab books, it has a good mix of content for all levels. I liked the little explanations/notes written in both English and Korean, because I was able to pick up even more words from these sections.
