Learn Korean now your're ready

There are so many reasons to learn Korean.

  • The culture is interesting and has a long history
  • The music is catchy
  • Korean TV shows are fantastic entertainment
  • The fashion is cutting-edge and effortlessly stylish, as are the celebrities.
  • The sights to see in Korea are some of the best in Asia

It’s no wonder Korean is has one of the fastest-growing learner demographics.

Despite this, if you want to progress towards fluency in Korean, you need a solid start. The Korean language isn’t as terrifyingly complex as people make it out to be.

But the grammar can still be a bit daunting to a learner coming from an English or Romance Language background. The tips you’ve read today can help you avoid common problems you might encounter.

Keep in mind the things that you think would help you, in your unique learning style, and the resources you can access where you are. What works for someone else might not work for you, and that’s fine.

Whether you’re living in Korea, studying in university, interested in your local Koreatown scene, or just plain fascinated with Korean culture, there are always methods that you can use to improve your Korean.

Online tools, textbooks, and Korean media are useful to have at your disposal. But remember that the most important traits of a successful Korean learner are dedication and patience.

Dedicate some study time every day, even if it’s only 15 minutes, to try to review what you’ve learned and learn at least one new thing. If you start slacking on your study time, you’ll start forgetting things, and it will be more difficult to pick up where you left off.

And, of course, be patient with yourself. Allow yourself to make mistakes, approach difficult concepts piece by piece, and remember that your goal is to understand and to be understood. If you find yourself becoming overwhelmed, take a step back and spend some time with some of the “fun” Korean things you’re interested in.

Hopefully you’ve taken some useful tips from this guide that made learning Korean seem easier than it did before. With these ideas, you can start thinking about your learning plan and researching the resources you’d like to have on hand. 항상 화이팅! (You’ve got this!)
