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.

    i understand all except the word geulsaeyo(?) can someone explain what it means?

    • Karen

      In this dialogue it literally means “i don’t really know”

  • Bianca T.

    I understand almost nothing, so fast omg very difficult. People here can be considered genius because they understand all so easily

    • rachel

      dont worry, listen to it like 10 times, eventually you will understand it all. when i first heard it i understood only like 30% but now after hearing it 5-6 times and reviewing the words i understand 98%. ^^

  • Karen

    I can’t even believe that i understand every words in this dialogue

  • 사미리

    Ah… It’s okay to listen korean native speak… but it’ll be difficult to join in the conversation… so sad…

    • Seokjin Jin

      It is not easy at the first time. However, I am sure you will join in the conversation soon if you learn more and more.

    Because of the speed of the dialouge and the new words that were introduced it was a bit hard to follow the dialogue.
    But by going through the pdf reading the words yourself and checking for translation of the new words helped alot to build the vocabulary and understanding of what the topic was.

    I think it was good that Mina was talking at a faster pace and for example that Minsu was speaking a bit more slowly and clearly. This helps you in reality, where not everyone speaks slow and clear. I am looking forward to reviewing this in one to two months time and be able to catch on where the speech is fast and not too clearly pronounced.

    Thanks alot for all the work and effort put into all these free lessons! 감사합니다

    안녕 하세요.
    I believe this line is missing in the audio. ^^
    “현주: 괜찮아요. 감사합니다.”

    I really do not believe.
    정말 샌각 안 해요. (정말 : Really , 샌각 : ideas / believe ?)

    I understand the dialog.
    대화 이해 해요. (대화 : Dialog , 이해 : understand)

    Thank you very much from lesson 1 to 25.
    수업 일 부터 이십오 까기 정말 감사합니다. (수업 : lesson)
