Talk to me in Korean: Lessons 15 -21

The third weekly installment of TTMIK lessons, assuming you are studying one podcast per day – if you’re going even faster, well done! I have fallen a bit behind in the past few week due to preparing for a job interview (which I got!),  observations in current workplace, finishing up in my last school and moving to a new one.

I have been continuing to listen to the podcasts everyday but haven’t had a chance to summarize my notes – sorry they’re late and hope they’re useful for learning or review!

Let’s continue learning Korean with Talk to me in Korean (TTMIK)

Lesson 21 – Negative Sentences  안, -지 않다, 안 하다, 하지 않다


So that’s your third weekly instalment of lessons from the team at TTMIK and almost finished Level 1 already, in less than a month! (if you’re doing one lesson per day)

Clearly things will get tougher from her on out but just getting this far makes me feel that learning Korean is quite manageable, at least building a foundation of basics in only 15-20 minutes per day. I have been tending to listen to two lessons a day – a review from the day before and a new lesson twice. This has been working quite well with remembering the basics of each step.

Look out for the next post in this series summarizing lessons 22-25 and the final test for Level 1. Then let’s get stuck in to Level 2!
