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.

    Yey!!! I understood 95% of it. TTMIK team, Kamsahamnida!!! *applause* Thank you for exerting a lot of effort and time just to help us learn Korean. I was so desperate to learn your language, ’cause I love watching Korean Dramas, and I really want to go there some day, enjoy all the nice places, eat delicious foods & see Kim Soo Hyun in person (hopefully). Hehehehe.<3 And now, I can proudly say that I can understand and speak Korean. And I know, soon.. When I finish all the levels, I can watch KDramas and videos of Kim Soo Hyun, without subtitles. You guys are really doing a great job!! Keep it up! :) :) :)

    I remember when I first listened to this back in 2011 and couldn’t understand a word of it. I kind of took a break from really studying Korean. I’m back into it now, and I’m proud to say that listening to this now, I understand 95% of what’s being said (^-^) I’m so happy right now, especially after thinking my Korean hadn’t improved.

    I understood everything! I give myself a pass at listening but when it comes to making sentences or when I want to say something, I’m always stuck! Okay guys, I’ll see you at level 2! Thank you TTMIK Team for these lessons!

  • Nadya_V14

    Hello everyone! Can anyone advise me some beautiful poem or poems in Korean? I will be very appreciated for such an advice!

  • Park She Rah

    Korean language is indeed interesting! I like how koreans talk it really sounds so sweet to my ears :)

  • Nadya_V14

    입니다 and 습니다 are endings of the words.. How can I say “ending” in Korean, if I mean an ending of a word?

  • Catia

    I understood almost everything :)
    글쎄요. 까지. 다른. 마시다. 생일. 선물. 잔. 지즈. < I didn't understand and that's cuz I'd never seen them before xD
    Why is cheese 지즈 instead of 지스 though?
    Btw I started with these lessons three weeks ago (I'm pretty sure) and I'm 14 :) I'm going to go through all the past lessons (pdf to make it faster) now before I start level two ^_^
    감사합니다 선생님 :)

    Hello =). Thankyou TTMIK for the amazing lessons! I am finishing level 1 and have a quick question.
    I’m looking at conjugating verbs. the verb ‘모르다’ (to not know) is conjugated as ‘모랐어요’. I am confused as to why it would be 모라요 (in the present tense) if the last verb in the stem is ㅡ. shouldn’t it be 모러요? or something like that that. I hope this all makes sense. I’m probably missing something simple heh. Thanks again. Phill

  • Mohamed Taqi

    I just started learning 3 months ago, and I can understand everything (except the words that haven’t been covered in the previous lessons).

    Thank you very much for what you do, wish you the best of success !! :)

      Thanks for your comment! Go for it!

  • Sarah_a_Sojourner

    Just wanted to say thanks for all you do. I had a horribly discouraging week last week trying to learn Korean. Everything was going wrong. I kept understanding less and less as I got more and more frustrated with my inability to understand and learn. Coming here and being able to understand 95% of this dialog really encouraged me that there is hope, that I am making progress, and I can learn Korean, little by little. Thanks again. ^_^

      Thanks for your comment. I hope you TTMIK will help you progress your Korean skill more and more.
