Hi everybody ❤
Actually I should be reading Richard Sakwa’s book on the crisis of Ukraine and finish my Korean homework now but my concentration is nowhere to be found. I looked under the desk and in my closet but nope… it’s gone. As I’ve been struggling for the past hour with my Korean grammar, I decided to share 5 websites with you that have helped me a lot in the past few years.
This series of short video’s is the old version of the program. I honestly think they are better that the later seasons. The little conversations are so awkward but perfect for beginners. The mc and teacher speak clearly and slow. A lot of expressions and grammar is covered, but not a lot of vocabulary.
Zkorean is the dictionary I most frequently use, when writing a text. Sometimes not every word can be found because it is uncommon, but 99% of the time the dictionary is able to help me. The website also provides information about Hangul and cool study tools.
How to study Korean is simply amazing! ❤ There is no other way to say it! After studying Korean for 3 years I finally discovered this website and omg… Everything is explained so well!!! You get loads of important vocabulary with additional sentences for every word you learn. The grammar is explained clearly and thoroughly. It is even possible to buy their short stories in order to practice your language skills while having fun. The lessons on Hanja are also very good and very handy because it’s not easy to find good information written in decent English on Hanja.
I really admire the person who manages the website! Keep up the good work!!!
This is the website of my Korean school! It is super handy and full of interesting information. We use it often in class to listen to conversations. Plus, the whole website can be accessed in 11 languages! How awesome is that? ^^ And the website doesn’t only talk about language, you can also find a lot about the Korean culture and tradition in general. For the drama fans, take a look at the videos of pit-a-pat that can be found on the website.
I discovered Key to Korean only recently, but I have to say, the website is super good! If you are studying and preparing for one of the TOPIK exams, this website is really helpful! I am planning to take a TOPIK exam in 2016 and I will definitely use the information and exercises provided by Key to Korean. Do you have a lot of free time next month? Then check out their 30 days of Korean challenge! I really think it’s awesome ❤
I would say, check out the websites and have fun exploring them! And as Richard Baxter said: “Study hard, for the well is deep, and our brains are shallow.” Studying a language is like an amazing journey, I think… Sometimes the road seems unclear and long and often you don’t really know where you are going, but I guarantee you… it is worth the effort!
