    I think the TTMIK News in Korean is a great service.

    So far it seems to be more focused on advanced learners. How about
    publishing articles that are focused on beginners/lower intermediate
    learners? I think that that market is bigger and nobody offers this
    yet as far as I know. Because, as you know, nowadays many newspapers
    already publish news articles in both Korean and English (English
    article with Korean translation), so there is a lot of competition in
    the advanced learners market.

    Even FOR FREE. For example:

    I also like the fact that you now provide flashcards of the difficult
    vocabulary.

    Have you ever considered to – beside the word in Korean and English – also
    include the whole sentence in Korean AND English where this word is
    being used in the article? That way, it is easier to understand the
    context and thus it improves the learning efficiency.
