This episode of TTMIK is a part of the series called “그들이 특별한 이유”, which means “The reason that they are special.” We believe that everybody is special in their own way, so in this series, we interview “ordinary people” and talk about why they are also “special.” This series was designed mainly for advanced level learners of the Korean language, therefore it is 100% in Korean. But even if you are not at advanced level yet, this series will provide you with great listening practice material. Every word used during the interview has been transcribed in the PDF for this lesson so be sure to download the PDF too. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave us a comment and we will do our best to answer them! Thank you!

문태곤, our first guest in this series is an engineer who works in a company but when he finds some free time, he likes to draw on Post-It notes. He has been drawing on Post-It notes for years now, and he has published a book from his drawings and he also has a blog here (click). Listen to the podcast and find out what makes him special as well as ordinary. The following are some of his drawings.

In this episode of Talk To Me In Korean, we interviewed Emily Johnson, who is from the States and came to Korea for a visit for the first time. Emily speaks fluent Korean without having studied it in Korea before, so we asked her to share her story. The day of the interview happened to be her last day in Korea, so we want to give our special thanks to Emily for spending her precious time with us! Thank you Emily! Have a safe trip back home!

안녕하세요! Hello everyone! We are back with another interview. This interview is 100% in Korean, but Koshiba Yuichi, as you might have guessed from the name, is not Korean, but Japanese. 경은 interviewed Yuichi and asked him some questions about his experiences in learning the Korean language. Yuichi speaks very fluent Korean, so we hope this Korean conversation between 경은 and Yuichi will be good listening practice for you, as well as a good opportunity how a Japanese person finds learning Korean. Every single word spoken in this interview is transcribed in the free PDF lesson note. 감사합니다!
