Tips for Learning Korean

I am learning 한국어! I want to share with you the easiest way to slip into this new language-learning experience 🙂

Tip #1: Learn the Alphabet, or Hangul

Hangul is pretty easy to learn ~ really, you would be surprised! It’s like learning your ABC’s. Once you have learned this foundation, everything else starts to become so much easier!

Song lyrics I am currently learning to sing 🙂

Tip #2: Use Drops to Supplement Your Vocabulary

I love, love, love the app called Drops to learn Korean words. It is easy to use, and you can learn a ton of new vocabulary in simple 15-minute intervals. However, I have android. Not sure if on iPhone.

Tip #3: Buy a Kit, Such as Living Language

To immerse myself in learning, I purchased the Living Language Korean Complete Edition. It’s a fantastic study system that includes tons of audio, so it helps with pronunciation, too.

Good price range, too.

Tip #4: Watch Korean TV!

This whole thing started with me watching Korean soaps and movies. They are absolutely creative and fun, very different from Hollywood stuff, and I fell in love with them instantly! 🙂 I watched them for a while with the subtitles, but then I thought… why not learn the language and just watch them?

One of my favorite K-Dramas, “W”

I also watch Korean Vlogs on YouTube ~ the more conversation it has, the better!

Another great one, “Clean With Passion for Now”

Submerging yourself in a language is the fastest way to master it. I learned fluent English in the span of a year because I had no other choice 😂 And I did notice that my friends that avoided English took longer to learn the language. It only made it harder for them.

That’s it! You’re ready to learn a new language!

안녕! 👈 “ahn-yong,” like “aloha” it means hi or bye (informal/casual).
Bye! Ciao!

  1. I’m Korean-American and I speak broken Korean, sadly. I’ve been watching a lot of Korean shows and speaking Korean a lot and it’s improving but definitely not fluent. Might use some of your tips thanks!
