Beginner & Intermediate Korean Reading Practice

Updated: Apr 22


안녕하세요 여러분. KoreanStudyJunkie입니다! Today I have 3 short reading practices you can do to practice your Korean and maybe learn a few new words or grammar.



BEGINNER:


Story one - I will go out today


오늘 외출할 거예요. 일요일 아홉시 반 아침이에요. 지금 막 일어났어요. 왜냐하면 알람이 울렸거든요. 엄마는 오늘 우리가 외출할 거라고 말했어요. 저는 너무 피곤해서 하품을 했어요. 그리고 나서 전 양치를 하고 세수를 했어요. 옷을 갈아입고 부모님이 준비를 마칠 때까지 기다릴 거에요. 엄마는 제가 착한 아이라고 칭찬해 줬어요.



Question 1: What day is it? What time is it?

Question 2: What did they do to get ready?

Question3 : What did their mom call them?



ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

I'm going out today. It's 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. I just woke up. Because the alarm went off.

Mom said we're going out today. I was so tired that I yawned. And then I brushed my teeth and washed my face. I'll change and wait for my parents to finish getting ready. My mom praised me for being a good kid.



 

ANY LEVEL:


Story two - Mukbangs


저는 유튜브 먹방 영상 보는 것을 좋아해요. 배가 고플 때마다 먹방을 봐요. 그 음식은 항상 매우 맛있어 보여요. 저도 그들처럼 먹을 수 있었으면 좋겠어요. 그 음식을 다 먹을 돈도 식욕도 없어요.



Question 1: When do they watch those videos?

Question 2: What do they wish that they could do?



ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

I like watching youtube mukbang videos. Whenever i'm hungry i'll watch mukbangs. The food always looks so delicious. I wish i could eat like they do. I don't have the money or the appetite to eat all that food.



 


INTERMEDIATE:


Story three - No more food in the house


이틀 전에 막 장을 보러 갔어요. 또 음식이 거의 다 떨어졌어요. 다음 번에는 모든 사람을 위한 식료품을 안 사려고 해요. 저는 불필요한 간식을 사기 위해 돈을 낭비를 안 해야겠지. 귀찮아가지고! 제가 하나도 못 먹었어요. 글쎄...과자를 숨길지 … 안 숨길지도 몰라요. 숨겨도 반드시 찾을 거 같은데요



Question 1: What happened to the groceries they just bought a few days ago?

Question 2: Next time what will this person do instead of buying groceries for everyone in the house?

Question 3: What’s their solution? Will that work?



ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

I went grocery shopping 2 days ago. The food is almost gone again. Next time, I’m not buying groceries for everyone. I shouldn’t waste my money on unnecessary snacks. Because it’s so annoying! I didn’t even get to eat one. Well.. Maybe I’ll hide the snacks… or maybe not. Even If I hide it, they’ll definitely find it.




 

I hope you liked these stories and If you want more I have plenty more where this came from. Check out the "Korean Stories Series". 115 pages, 13 different stories in Korean w/ corresponding English translations, a vocabulary list of all words from each story (13 lists), and around 75 questions to test how much you understood (+ answers to the questions).



Should I make more reading practices like this? Would you prefer I leve the English translation right next to the story or move it farther away from the Korean? Let me know in the comments! Below this blog are other lessons you might find interesting
