Check how much you can understand from studying with Level 1 lessons of TalkToMeInKorean! To make the conversation more realistic, we have added some new words and expressions that did not get covered in Level 1 yet, but don’t worry; you have the PDF to use for reference!

First listen to the dialog alone without looking at the Korean transcript or translation, and then compare your understanding with the actual translation.

Let us know how much you understood!

You can view the PDF here or download it 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.


We also have books for you to study with! Check them out on our store!

    Ahh… I could almost understand all of this! The plain dialogue was too fast for me to keep up with, but when I read along it was fine. This is so exciting!

    안녕하세요 TTMIK
    I just finished Level 1… That was really very interesting.
    I can’t believe that i’ve understand all of the 1st dialogue. The second one was a little bit difficult because there was a new vocabulary words like “Beer” and “Cups”…
    Thank you for your efforts. You are a great team. 사랑해요 <3

    화이팅 !

    What does this sentence mean??
    “누가 피자집에서 맥주를 마셔요?”
    I don’t really understand the phrasing of this sentence…Can you please help me with it?? Thanks a lot!!!

      It means “who drinks beer at a pizza place?” It implies that it’s a little odd for somebody to want to drink beer with their pizza (even though we all know that it’s the perfect combination).

  • joey

    I understood everything in the first part of the dialog yay~

    The second part was a little harded tho because there were some new words. I’ll keep studying~ 감사합니다! ^^

    • Seokjin Jin

      Wow, it is awesome! You did a good job!

  • dramabunster

    I understiid almost everything but the new words got me but even though they were new words i could tell what kind of work it was by how the conversation was going.Yup, yup, yup!!

    • Seokjin Jin

      Awesome! Great job!

  • Aaron Brown

    Thank you so much for the lessons, they have taught me so much and I feel so proud to understand almost everything in this conversation! Although it is still difficult to follow since they seem to talk so fast… I probably just need to work on my listening comprehension more!

    One thing I noticed In the PDF, it says “How drinks beer in a pizza place” It should be “who”! :)

    Hello TTMIK.. Thank you very much for all the lessons.. I can only understand the first parts so far, for the next parts I can only understand some words one by one.. XD but definitely I wont stop studying this dialogue until I understand it all.

    I just have some questions here.I’m studying Korean language because I’m planning to take on the next TOPIK here to be able to work there in Korea. All the lessons I took (1-25 lvl1) really went well, easy to understand and enjoyable. But then when I tried to check a guidebook for TOPIK, why is it that most of the sentences there end with “입니다”, instead of “예요”. Example if I say “This is Coffee”, then I would say “이거 커피예요”, but on the book this will be written as “이것이 커피입니다”. Is this about the politeness level mentioned on earlier lessons? Thanks! =)

    • 유범수

      Yep (I’m learning Korean too!). The ㅂ니다 ending is the formal ending whereas the (이)에요 ending is the polite version. To get the formal version of any verbs in the present tense, add ㅂ니다 if the verb stem ends in a vowel and add 씁니다 to stems ending in a consonant. 것 is also the formal version of 거.

  • Patrik Beglinger

    I understood All from this “Test” i am very happy :D going for the level 2 now :D

  • Erica Brittain

    Inside the script when minsu says : who drinks beer in a pizza place? (I am going to assume thats what minsu says, if so then there is a typo). Inside the PDF it is ” How drinks beer in a pizza place?

    Just wanted to point it out!!

    This was awesome btw! So glad I could make it through level 1.

  • Daniella Bohler

    I recognized nearly all of the words/phrases when listening to the audio, but I couldn’t remember what it all meant, maybe because they were talking at a normal pace, but I understood loads of it when I read the transcript, I’m usually such a slow learner but I’m doing well thanks to your lessons! Thank you for putting so much effort into everything on this site!!^^
