Download Available

Welcome to the very first lesson at TalkToMeInKorean.com! If you are an absolute beginner of the Korean language, start with this lesson and practice with us. Don’t worry if you do not know how to read and write in Korean yet. We will guide you through every step of learning Korean. In this lesson, you can learn how to say “Hello.” and “Thank you.” in Korean.

“Hello.” is “안녕하세요. [an-nyeong-ha-se-yo]” and “Thank you.” is “감사합니다. [gam-sa-hap-ni-da]” If you already know how to say these expressions, listen to the lesson to find out how to say them most naturally. If you can make a video of yourself saying these expressions, that would be FANTASTIC!


You can view the PDF here or download it here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

    Son living in Korea for the last 7 years….. He’s going to stay there and marry a Korean gal, so someday, I will have Grandchildren who’s first language will be Korean. I am determined to learn, so that I can show respect and interest to my future daughter and law and future grandchildren. Thanks for helping me!
