If you’re stuck in traffic somewhere, what do you normally do? Get angry and pound your hands on the steering wheel while yelling at the car in front of you? Sing every track from the “Frozen” soundtrack at the top of your lungs to pass the time? Whatever you do, we challenge you to “let it go” and try studying Korean instead! In this lesson, we give you 13 phrases in Korean that you can use when you want to talk or ask about traffic. Study this lesson in the car, on the bus, or on a cramped subway to really make these sentences relate to your real life, which is one of the best ways to learn instead of just sitting down and memorizing! We hope you enjoy, and thanks for studying with us! :D
