Level 3 Lesson 30 / Word builder 2 / 실(室)

Download Available

Welcome to another lesson in the Word Builder series. The Word Builder lessons will be a part of the regular lessons. In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words based on Chinese characters, but many of them are.

Hope you enjoy this lesson, and we are looking at the word “실” [sil] in this lesson.


You can download a free PDF for this lesson 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.

    안녕하세요..전 곧 한국에있을고예요.그래서 한국어 가기 전에 잘 해야돼요..
    전 한국어 잘 얘기 할수있지만 혼자 배웠어서 저의 레벨이 몰라요..
    그리고 한국어는 잘하고싶지만 존댓말 잘못해서 어떻게/어디에서 또 시작해야돼요? 지금 여기에 보고 있지만 다 알고있어것같아요..
    지금 정말 다 혼란 스러웠어요 ..ㅋㅋㅋ 제발, 저 레벨이 찿고 도와주세요..곧 시작하고 열심히 한국어 공부 해야돼요.예를 들면 테스트 쇼의 일부가 있어요? :)

    많이 잘못했으면 미안해요…벌써 감사합니다!!
    안녕 형제의 나라…!

      안녕하세요 Sena 씨,
      제가 봤을 때는 Sena 씨는 한국어를 아주 잘 하는 편이라고 생각해요. 그런데 이 사이트에서 실력을 평가하는 테스트는 없어요. 대신 “이야기” 레슨은 한국 일상 대화와 거의 같은 속도로 이야기하기 때문에 Sena 씨한테 도움이 될 것 같아요.

    Hi, I’m listening to your lessons all the way from Singapore^_^ I took a break from Korean for quite a long time because of school and working part-time but now that I’m not working and have time. I enjoy listening to your lessons, I’m glad I didn’t give up on Korean^^ I hope I can save up enough money to go to Korea one day and maybe you guys could give me a tour xDD

    저는 성격이 조금 수줍어서 말 잘 표현할 수 없어요
    아므튼 선생님들에게 너무 감사하고 level 4에서 봐요^_^

  • morgan

    what does “animyoung” mean?

    • Greg

      animyun maybe? 아니면? Literally “if not”, but can also translate as “or”.

  • morgan

    Thanks, i dont know the spelling either romanized or in hangul, only heard it spoken. But that translation seems probable given the context ive seen it used in

    I’m actually listening to this from South Korea!! I actually live here!! but I’m not from here. ^^;;

    i wander why we don’t have “Test Your Korean – Level 3 Dialog in 100% Korean” part which i think it is very useful.
    with this part ,i am able to know how well i learn .
    hope you can recover it.
    thank you ~

  • Anthony Alvarez

    Hi Guys, For some reason for the past week or so I haven’t been able to hear the audio lessons on Sound Cloud. I’ve tried Google Chrome, Mozilla, Internet Explorer. (on my lap top and desk top to no avail)I even went back to the earlier lessons same problem. Do I need a special app now? Did you guys make some changes? Thank you, Anthony.
