Korean: Top 25 phrases

Learn the top 25 phrases you need to know in Korean with Koreanclass 101 – you will definitely hear these if you watch any Korean TV and just a few phrases can get you started towards sounding more natural when you speak Korean.

I screencapped the phrases from the video for a quick reference when revising or for creating flashcards. I am finding it really useful just seeing the hangeul and practising reading it alongside listening to the audio; it is tempting to write a rough pronunciation in romanized letters but I want to get sued to reading and writing hangeul as soon as possible.

Have a go at reading and reviewing the phrases below:

How was it? Could you read them all? Were there any new phrases for you?

Despite being quite new to Korean I knew most of these phrases already but it is great to review and be able to use them automatically. ‘Wait a moment’ ‘Have a nice day’ and ‘Long time, no see’ were new for me so need to remember them for next time!

Thanks to Koreanclass101 for the video!

  1. Ah, I love this video. I just watched one for the top 25 Cantonese phrases (I’m about to post it). It’s from Cantoneseclass101…love these 101 sites.

    “Please give me a discount” “Long time no see” and “Have a good journey” were new for me!
