How to Learn Korean at Home?

Due to the spread of COV-19 virus, Global Lounge is unfortunately not open for this semester. Therefore, many of exchange students would be disappointed since you cannot participate in K-lounge. I willingly recommend you to try some useful materials to help you learn Korean language.

King Sejong Institute(세종학당)

There is a King Sejong Institute website(https://www.sejonghakdang.org/sjc
u/home/main.do), which is made by Korean public institutions. It provides integrated information about Korean language and Korean culture to Korean learners. You can freely use it whenever you want, because It is compatible for both PC and mobile environments. For your information, a few services require you to sign up first in order to utilize the service.

It provides a foreign translation service in English, Chinese and Spanish languages. You can select one suitable language for yourself. If you have learned Korean before, it is good to check your level by taking a level test. Do not worry even if you do not have any idea about Korean. There are nice Korean lectures for all Korean learners; introductory, beginner, intermediate and advanced. As lots of E-books for the lectures are also prepared, learn Korean as much as you want!

 Moreover, it introduces some applications for vocabulary training, conversation/pronunciation and grammar training. By utilizing all these resources, I am sure that your Korean skills will improve. If you think this is not enough, you can also experience Korean culture through videos and cartoons. They cover from general information about Korea to various social aspects.

HelloTalk(헬로우톡)

Imagine you have Korean friends, and you can hang out together! HelloTalk would be a great way to learn Korean by having actual conversation with Korean people. It is an application for language exchange. You can chat with Korean friends who want to learn your language.

When you set your language level, you can look for your partners. If you find someone, you can start a conversation right away. Your partner would help you make fluent sentences like native speaker. A translation service is always ready for you in case you cannot understand what your partner is saying. In addition, you can see people close to you depending on your location. Now, you have Korean friends, so enjoy hanging out and talking with them in Korean and your language!
