Have you ever felt frustrated waiting for the day you will be able to understand Korean fully without subtitles? If yes, you're not alone.
Self- learning a new language surely takes a lot of patience. Sometimes it may seem like learning all those grammars and vocabularies is not paying off because you can barely make sense of what native Korean speakers say.
Today I'm going to share with you some tips which will help you upgrade your listening skill in Korean . Before that, let me introduce myself. 안녕 하세요! I'm Mahzabin Mim from Bangladesh. I've been self-learning Korean for a couple of years and right now my Korean language skill is at intermediate level.
This is my first blog at koreanstudyjunkie.com. Since I'm also a learner just like you, I'd like to bring you tips and materials which are helping me better understand Korean. Let's learn together : D
In the past I used to pick my favourite korean youtube channel's video for listening practice and end up feeling frustrated. Because the korean spoken in the video was too advance for me. That's why when you're a beginner or intermediate learner, it's really important to choose the right material for listening practice.
If your listening material contains too many advance grammar items, you're going to have a hard time understanding even if you know the vocabulary. So, how do you pick up your listening material? There are videos on youtube which have been created specially for listening practice. In the beginning, practice with these videos.
A good resource is Talk To Me In Korean youtube channel. Here you'll find playlist based on your skill level.
Recently I've found another youtube channel which I think is wonderful to improve your listening skill. The channel's name is– 'Practicing Korean'.
Here you can practice with K-drama clips, animations, short stories etc. The videos are short and the best part is– each and every sentence is explained word by word with grammatical explanation also. And since the material is entertaining, you won't be bored while studying.
Also, don't forget to take notes when you learn something new so that your newly learned vocabulary or grammar stays with you. That's it for today! Hope you found the blog useful.
