The Talk To Me in Korean review was originally published in Dulaboo.com. I used to write for the said website before my contract expired. Republishing here for archiving purposes. Edited to suit Yoast’s requirements.
Talk To Me In Korean is a complete package especially for those who really have an idea what they are looking for: KPop.
Not that big of a fan of KPop, but I enjoy listening to some artists that can either dish out the techno beats or those who can harmonize as a group.
KPop at Talk To Me In Korean serves as one of the best incentives to give online learners. It’s like a reward-based learning system to motivate students to take their lessons seriously.
Talk To Me In Korean’s curriculum is ranked in 7 levels with each level encompassing 25 lessons that are available in Korean and English characters.
Lessons are downloadable with options as to which format you would like to download them. There’s an mp3 format for those who would like to review their audio lessons using their mp3 players while on the go.
This method would be perfect for students who drive and commuters alike. The .pdf format would fit those who would like to review their lessons using their tablet whether on the go or just at home.
Students are also encouraged to write their own Korean sentences since there would be native speakers that can help them. Corrections by native speakers of Korean help both your oral and written proficiency in the language. They called this service HaruKorean, 1:1 Corrections. At least there is assurance in this learning program that not everything will be dependent on pre-recorded lessons.
The eBooks are available for purchase here at Talk To Me In Korean. The price tags are just below the book covers in order not to shock you into thinking that most downloads here are for free. Some services offered here are for free while the rest come with a price. Think of them as paid perks for better learning.
They have lessons taught in videos too. “Ask Hyojin” is one segment worth looking forward to. It gives language learning a youthful vibe.
Now they teach even texting shorthand in Korean, an SMS skill not alien to those who are fond of sending them on their mobile phones. You want to be understood while adhering to the character limits often associated with SMS.
It’s not that you are given permission to violate Korean grammar. It’s just that we need to adjust to technology too. And this character limitation applies to the Korean language too.
Can your fascination with KPop be applicable in learning the Korean language? Of course it can. This is where “Learn Korean Words with KPop” sets in.
I like it that the first song I found in this section is something not familiar to me catchy enough to encourage me to learn Korean further: Miss A’s “I Don’t Need A Man”.
Although I am aware of a certain formula that music groups in South Korea follow, Miss A’s harmonious melody reminds me of why I ended up liking Wonder Girls’ other songs apart from “Nobody Nobody But You”.
The ultimate kicker sets in once I found PSY’s viral hit “Oppa Gangnam Style” on Talk To Me In Korean’s playlist too. Good thing they included this song since according to Korean culture critics, this is a satire on the high-flying life in Gangnam, South Korea’s richest district.
Talk To Me In Korean focused on the sentences that can help learners how to ask someone out for a date. It wasn’t surprising to find most of the useful sentences to be about asking someone out for a date.
If you are familiar enough with the song, you know that this is about a filthy rich man bragging in the song how easy it is for him to take a woman out for a date.
Talk To Me In Korean is that one site that almost every Kpop enthusiast that I know would recommend to me if I need a Kpop-based way to learn Korean. So it’s great to know that the site is still up. And most lessons are still up on their Twitter page for you to follow.
