How To Improve Korean FAST
Are you learning Korean language?
Regardless of which level you are at, you might be overwhelmed when it comes to learning Korean vocabulary.
I get this same question from my students very often. My general answer is..
1. Find out WHY you are learning Korean
It really does depend on many different things; especially for what purpose you are learning Korean.
You could be learning Korean because you;
– love K-POP.
– watch Korean drama all the time and you want to know what they are saying without looking at subtitles.
– admire Korean fashion and beauty products.
– want to go to Korea to teach English.
– have Korean boyfriend or girlfriend and want to learn Korean to communicate with them and their family members.
– are into online games or Korean traditional Baduk game.
and so on…

3. Learn massive verbs
I think learning all the new words in new language can be daunting. For learning Korean, I highly suggest you to start with verbs. I believe that verbs are the most effective words you can deliver message with a limited number of vocabulary. A great thing about learning Korean verbs is that you can easily convert verbs into nouns, adjectives and adverbs.

4. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes
I started to learn English when I was at the elementary school in South Korea. I really enjoyed learning the language and was very dedicated to study it driven by my own motivation. Learning English on a day to day consistently helped me to improve the language. However, another big factor that helped me most was I was not afraid of making mistakes. I could make the most stupid mistakes and said jumbled words mixed with Korean words. But I also went up to English speakers to practice a couple of phrases I learned from schools or Hollywood movies. This was the time back in the early 90s, and it was VERY rare to see non-Koreans on streets in South Korea. These days, there are so many online websites and social medias where you can instantly be connected with people who are in the same interests. You should take advantage of that. Most importantly, don’t feel discouraged by someone who is way more proficient in Korean, because everyone at one point started from learning the Korean alphabet just like you did or you plan to do. Make progress bit by bit everyday.
