Are you preparing to take a Korean test? Are you just curious how you might perform on an Intermediate level Korean test style question? Then this episode is for you.
This episode features an Intermediate level question, and requires Intermediate level listening skills in order to completely understand it. Let me know if you got it right~
This will be the last "Korean Test Practice" episode for a few months, as I'm currently working hard to finish filming and editing my new beginner Korean course videos. Once that's completed, I'll make some more. Let me know what difficulty level you'd prefer for future episodes.
Over the past week or so I have been putting in hours recording and editing my brand new podcast. I cannot explain how much I have enjoyed the learning process here. I am also really nervous about publicly announcing this for some reason.
I love listening to podcasts and until now never really thought that it could be something that I could do. I always considered myself a better writer than a talker. After failing miserably with youtube I was kind of put off by projects like this. I guess in someway I was sort of hiding behind the keyboard.
Korea-Based… For Now…
The basic focus of the podcast will be about photography and Korea as is similar to this blog. I am directing this more for people who have an interest in Korea and for photographers who want to know a little bit more about where to photograph in the country. If you are already living here then what I cover, you probably already know.
Thinking about taking on the Korean language as your next language to learn? If so, you may be wondering “Is Korean hard to learn?”
Many people ask this question. Korean is a wildly popular language to learn these days, thanks to the rise of K-Pop, K-Dramas, Korean movies, and Korean culture in general. You may be wondering things such as how difficult the alphabet is to learn, if you need to study tones, and if there are fast ways to learn the language.
Ever been confused by the sounds ㄴ, ㄷ, ㅁ, or ㅂ? Sometimes I remember hearing words that I thought were other words, because of these letters.
For example, a native Korean speaker would tell me 네, but I thought they were saying 데 or 돼 or something else.
Another time someone asked me 뭐, but I thought they had said 붜. I was quickly searching my dictionary for 붜 but wasn't able to find it, so I just assumed they had said 뭐 incorrectly. Well it turns out they were saying it perfectly, but my ears weren't used to it. Here's an explanation of what this is, and why it can happen.
In this lesson you'll learn about the Past Tense, such as how to make it and when to use it.
Remember that this video series goes in order, so if you're not able to follow along make sure to watch from the beginning, and in order. There will be a total of 100 episodes in this series by the time it's completed.
We're almost halfway finished! By the end of this series, you'll know all of the most essential beginning grammar, and will have enough Korean (with plenty of practice along the way) to carry on short and (very) simple conversations.
For a while, I was seeing some amazing photos of these rocky formations out at sea. I had always assumed that they were further up the coast around Samcheok or somewhere like that. It seemed that many Korean photographers knew about these places and I was at a loss to try and find out where they were.
