The WeeklyKorean.com 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.
When culture is embedded into the Korean language tutorial lessons, we get a glimpse of how they live their lives. This becomes a good source of discussions.
WeeklyKorean.com tugged right into my heartstrings the moment family values got included into the materials.
WeeklyKorean.com takes pride not only in a thoroughly research method of language tutorial. They also give you a glimpse of Korean family life.
For example in the flowchart they provided here that I immediately saw on the home page, you learn the Korean terms for grandma, grandpa, mom, dad and the siblings.
Some of the tools used in WeeklyKorean.com are outsourced and embedded into the site to help online learners like this Korean dictionary, Naver.
Not sure if the site is frequently updated or if ever they hired some English translators for their language tutorial program. I hope they could correct some of the English grammatical errors found on the site.
Anyway, the moment “subject” and “object” are discussed here at WeeklyKorean.com, I realized that this is the Korean way to discuss subject-verb-agreement.
The statement refers to an action mentioned by the verb (not mentioned in this screenshot), the “subject” is the doer of the action and the “object” is the recipient of the action done.
In the example given, “Andy ate oranges”, “Andy” is the subject; “ate” is the verb; and “oranges” is the object.
In this screenshot, the explanation is the Korean way of explaining subject-verb-agreement. For an audio simulation of the lesson taught, just click the play button to learn sentence construction in a phonetic way.
Flashcards are also outsourced and embedded here at WeeklyKorean.com provided by Quizlet. You are given a Korean sentence or expression, listen to the audio clip then click “flip the card” to see if you got it right.
You are allowed to choose which flashcard method suits you once you click “Options” at the upper right side of the Quizlet box. Either you let it flip, flow or speak the text written on the flashcard, whichever suits your taste. You are even allowed to start the card with either Korean or English.
WeeklyKorean.com with the help of Quizlet allows you to choose a study mode too. Click the dropdown box at the lower right of the Quizlet box and you get to choose between “scatter”, “learn”, “flashcards” and “speller”.
Minor grammatical errors aside, the Korean language lessons taught here at WeeklyKorean.com are helpful in teaching you the basics of the language.
The podcasts provided here will help you learn Korean in a phonetic way. Sometimes learning a foreign language phonetically instead of relying on written text alone is a more effective way to learn. I hope this helped.
Upon checking if WeeklyKorean.com still exists, I was directed to a page that says that the domain has been bought. I felt a little bad since the podcasts could have helped in providing a phonetic approach to learning Korean. Hopefully the podcast episodes were preserved by the original webmaster.
