Test Your Korean – Level 1 Dialog in 100% Korean

Download Available

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.

    한국어를 공부하시는 분들께
    이정도 대화를 알아들으실 수 있으시다면 웬만한 한국어 대화는 가능하시다는 겁니다. 자신의 한국어 실력에 자부심을 가져도 좋으실 것 같습니다.

    I have a question about the tone of this dialogue. Specifically, the part when Mina says she wants to eat pizza. Minsu said, “Hyeonju, how about you? Do you want to eat pizza?” is his tone a little bit uncomfortable? And when Hyeonju said, “Yes… I also like pizza,” is she sounding disappointed because Mina said she wants to eat pizza even though it is Minsu’s birthday? Sometimes it is hard to pick up on things like disappointment in a foreign language so I am just curious. THANK YOU!

      I just listened to the audio file. It was Hyunju’s birthday and it sounds like Minsu isn’t in a mood for pizza.

    I enjoyed the test so much, thank you! It seems like I understood the grammar, but sucked at the vocabulary. It is my bad though. I should have paid more attention to the vocabulary.

    • Seokjin Jin

      화이팅! If you learn the vocabulary, you will get familiar with many expressions and make many fluent expressions, too.

  • Bethany Mccarthy

    I’m so happy that I can understand bits of it! It is way more than what I used to know

  • Ann

    I’ve got a question! How would you say “What time is it?” naturally? Would it be ” 뭐 시간 이에요?” or is that wrong?

    • Guest

      Isn’t it 몇 시여요?

    • Jenelyn Tidalgo

      Isn’t it 몇 시예요?

  • Nazatul

    I am so happy that i can understand the whole conversation without looking at the translation .

    • JooyeonPark

    I am so happy CoZ I could understand more than 95% of the conversation and before studying with you if I listened to this I would understand just an-nyoeng-ha-se-yo so that is a huge progress to me and all thanks to you kam-sa-ham-ni-da TTMIK sa-rang-he-yo <3

  • Tara

    Apart from 까지 part (민수 씨는 언제까지 시간 있어요?), which I didn’t catch at first, I understood everything!! Yay!

    까지 is still too fresh in my memory, I guess haha Time to get more practise!

  • Christine Gonzalvo

    • Seokjin Jin

      Yes! Go for it!

  • Troy Cahalan

    Hey I’m new to the site and want to first say you guys do a great job! I
    think there’s a slight mistake in the PDF transcript though…
    After Minsu says he didn’t know about Hyeonju’s birthday.
    현주: 괜찮아요. 감사합니다.
    This sentence is missing from the audio. Anyway keep up the good work and 감사합니다!

    • thatxxx

      Yes, I noticed that, too.
      And also there is a little mistake in the translation. Shouldn’t it be “who” instead of “how”?:
      민수: 누가 피자집에서 맥주를 마셔요?
      Minsu: How drinks beer in a pizza place?

  • thatxxx

    I understood everything :D Level 2 I’m coming~

    besides 글쎄요, I didn’t know the exact meaning, but at least I got it from the context :D

  • sophia leonardo
