    korean diary

    i started learning korean seriously at the beginning of 2022 (i bet $300 with some friends on being able to have a simple conversation by the end of the year) but first got interested in it in high school.

    current progress: aug 16 2022. finished TTMIK level 8 grammar lessons - currently focusing on review and just listening, listening, listening!

    my korean log

    comprehensible input

    i do most of my learning based on comprehensible input (based on krashen's theory), which you can learn more about here!

    tv shows

    avatar the last airbender, korean dub - what it says on the tin

    kokoa - watch korean and korean dubbed shows or movies. basically like an fmovies?

    dramacool - site for asian dramas and movies

    netflix has a lot of kdramas available with official subs in a lot of different languages. unfortunately, netflix is not free :/


    naver webtoon - webtoon in korean!


    my spotify playlist above is a korean-only playlist!

    iyagi - a podcast of 15m~ korean conversations

    talk to me in 100% korean - a podcast of 15m~ korean conversations - kind of like a sequel to the above

    grammar / vocab

    compatible with anki

    anki is a flashcards app that's based off of spaced repetition. i use this every day!

    retro learns korean - anki decks put together by retro, a blogger learning korean, for all levels! i personally used the beginner 500 vocab words deck.

    evita's grammar sentences deck - i love this grammar deck! it closely follows the TTMIK lessons so it was a great companion that saved me lots of time in studying.

    text to speech anki add-on - i use this to add automatic audio to my sentence flashcards.


    talk to me in korean - a really popular set of grammar lessons from beginner to about B1 level. they have an accompanying youtube channel and tons of books for sale. i just use their free lessons and listen to their podcast sometimes. there's also a summarized version of all the lessons in a google sheets doc.

    how to study korean - i did the first 15 lessons on here and switched to ttmik. it's good because it explains things in depth but goes into so much detail that lessons took too long - i'll probably go back to this when i'm done with ttmik!
