  • Korean Test Practice with Billy [Ep. 14] – Intermediate Korean (Listening Practice)

    This week's new episode is an intermediate level Korean test question.

    There are episodes for all levels in this series - beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

    Let me know if there's a type of question you'd like to see in future videos~!

    Don't read below if  you want to try the problem on your own first.

    Here is the listening example from the video:

    네. 이제 밖에 나와서 잘 들려요. 아, 그 옷이요? 아직 안 팔렸어요. 사실 건가요? 네. 저는 내일 저녁 8시에 괜찮아요. 여의도로 와주시면 다른 옷도 한 벌 더 드릴게요. 그럼 택배비 빼고 5만 원만 주시면 돼요. 네. 내일 뵐게요.

    Here's the English translation:

    Yes. Now I came outside and can hear you well. Ah, those clothes? They haven’t been sold yet. Will you purchase them? Yes. I’m fine tomorrow evening at 8 o’clock. If you come to Yeo-ui-do I’ll give you an extra set of clothing. Then I’ll remove the delivery fee, and you can just give me 50,000 Won. Okay. I’ll see you tomorrow.

  • LTW: Sin-soo Choo and BTS shine in the U.S

    While Donald Trump is changing his mind on the meeting with Kim Jong-un as often as he makes trips to bathroom in diarrhea, two Korean celebrities have made histories in the U.S. Sin-Soo Choo, a Korean in Texas Rangers, hit a good-bye home run, his 176th home run in his MLB career, on May 27 in the 10th inning against Kansas City Royals, becoming the Asian with most home runs in MLB history since his debut in 2005 with Seattle Mariners. Matsui Hideki of Japan had held the title with 175 home runs until his retirement in 2012. Another Korean sensation was with boy band BTS as they earned the first No.1 album on Billboard 200 chart with 'Love Yourself:Tear', becoming the first K-pop album to lead the Billboard 200, and the first foreign language chart topper since 2006 when Il Divo topped the list with Ancora in the mixture f Spanish, Italian and French.

  • Learn Korean Ep. 101: More Than & Less Than (Comparatives)

    I found a cool Korean drum and wanted to show off my skills to Keykat... but she didn't seem too impressed. Maybe she thinks it's boring?

    안녕! "Comparatives" are a useful concept in Korean. You can use adverbs (such as 더 and 덜) to say that something is "more" or "less" than something else. This episode will cover how to do that, and give you some examples that you can use in your Korean too.

    Remember that there are free extended PDFs available for every "Learn Korean" episode (at the bottom of this post), and each contains additional information or examples not covered in the video. You can move through them at your own pace, print them out and use them as a free workbook, or skim them for a quick review before or after watching a lesson.

  • How to Learn Korean with K-Pop (and Korean Music)

    These days, more and more people around the world have started learning Korean.

    Why? There are many reasons. One of the most common reasons I hear is that they started learning Korean after becoming interested in K-Pop and Korean music. Personally, I'm super excited that so many more people are starting to learn Korean and becoming interested in Korea.

    No matter your reason for learning Korean, I want to support you in your journey. So I created this video as a guide for learning Korean through K-Pop. While I don't think that K-Pop is the best way to learn Korean, I also don't think it's useless either. There are ways to benefit from using Korean music when studying, which I'll talk about in this video.

    Check it out here~! And good luck in your studies!
