  • Ellis

    Hello! :) can I ask how are you all practicing Korean? I just need some inspiration, how to effectively learn it :) are you maybe writing your own sentences? or reading in korean? I’m just curious what kind of learning are you gyus using, thanks! :)

    • Saleema

      Hello! I find that the most effective way to learn Korean is to do a combination of things. For example, constantly read books (children’s books are a good start), make up your own sentences with new vocabulary you learn, and just talking to yourself in Korean is good practice. Also, if you can, try to find Korean people or at least people who are studying Korean for conversation practice! That has been the best for me. Just by going to Korean restaurants or stores, you can learn a lot (if there are any near you) Additionally, make sure to listen to Korean audio books or watch Korean shows with or without subtitles for listening practice! Lastly, you should look online for good resources, but I think that Talktomeinkorean.com is the best! I hope this helps. (I’ve been learning Korean for a little more than three years, and these things have helped me) There are so many more ways to practice learning this language, so just asking more people works! :D

    • Ellis

      Thank you so much! You helped me a lot :)

    • Seokjin Jin

      Thanks so much for your comment! :)

  • Pierre Dupont

    Hi. I am Korean native speaker. My english is not good enough but I …am about to teach Korean language to a foreign speaker, who i met a few days ago. So, I decided to make purchase on text books in “Talk to me in Korean. “. But there are so many books, which makes me feel difficult to choose ones. Should I buy Talk to me In Korean level 1 through level 4 for this purpose ? And do you have any other recommendation ?

    • Pierre Dupont

      Please, asnwer me..

    • Faith “패이트” L

      If the person you are teaching does not know the hangul alphabet, you should start at level 1 lesson 1. By level 4 he/she will be able to carry out a normal simple conversation. After level 4, all he/she needs to add is more grammar and vocabulary. Hope this helped :)

    • Seokjin Jin

      talktomeinkorean.com/curriculum 페이지에 가 보시면 각 문법 레슨들이 나열되어 있으니 필요할 때마다 참고하시면 도움이 될 것 같아요. 그리고 같이 책을 보시면서 한국어를 가르치시려면 책을 사는 것도 큰 도움이 되겠죠? 문법, 어휘, 한글 이 중에 어떤 것을 위주로 가르치고 싶으신지 결정하시면 책을 선택하시는 데에 도움이 될 것 같아요.

  • Cameron Gregory Hunter

    I Have a curious question, I have the TTMIK App with all the lessons on it, but recently the lessons aren’t loading anymore. Are they not working on the App no longer and would I have to purchase the E-books to continue?

    • Seokjin Jin

      Because one of our listeners created the app, and it is not run by TTMIK team, I don’t the matters in the application. The lessons from TTMIK site are free and they will be free in the future, too. You can download the each lessons from this site or purchase the bulk item from MyKoreanStore.com

  • Kira Kira

    Hi, I really don’t understand lesson 7 level 3. Could someone please explain it to me? It is really confusing that you can use so many different linking words to say but/so/and. I don’t know what kind of situation do you apply it to.

  • Carl

    So i have been wondering how you would say “when” in Korean outside of a sentence. For example, “When the movie comes out, will you see it?” I didn’t see any lesson for this phrase either.

    • Coco McGee

      I’m not one of the teachers, but as far as I know, it is “-ㄹ 떼”
      For example, when you have time – “시간 있을 께”
      Asking for correction. :)

    • Carl

      Ahh okay. I did a lot of searching and finally came across ㄹ 때 on korean wiki project. I think that’s right. TTMIK please correct us if we’re wrong! 감사합니다!
