Suggestions for learning how to speak in korean

Hi :slight_smile: ive already finished studying hangul and i was wondering if there are people out there who can give suggestions regarding learning how to speak in korean.
i really want to start subbing soon. thank you :smiley:


I practice speaking in various ways:

  • Singing along with Kpop even though it’s not always correct.
  • Repeating sentences in Kdrama
  • Repeat after Korean teachers like teachers of TTMIK, Pit-a-pat Korean of KBS World, and sometimes Lee Jun Ki for hello Korean.

You can also use Hello Talk on your phone or look for a Korean native who wants to do a language exchange with you. There are various sites for that.


here are my tips ( which work for any language, really)

  • watch your favourite movies ( the ones You know by heart) in Korean language - You do not have to follow the plot ( as You know it) and can concentrate on speech patterns.
  • watch korean cartoons - they are using basic expressions just for kids and will not shove all those sophisticated 'woudla" “shouda” “hatta” on You,
  • sub a lot - the drama scripts are repetetive so amost the same sentences are used over and over again, especially in weekendish dramas.
  • watch longer dramas where plot starts slowly and where problems are solved in a longer time than one episode; during weekend or special dramas ( the normal ones, not the ones with dialect or set far away in the history) they are using day- to- day phrases which everyone normally uses ( just pay attention to honorifics!)
  • use Memrise app on Your phone - it helps memorising the words, basic sentences and their pronounciation in a very interesting way that “sticks” to Your brain somehow.

For subbing, I would suggest starting with the languages You know - English to our native language or so. the Korean will flow into Your brain regardless of what You are subbing :wink:


I like this thread! But how many years or months you are learning Korean? i’m interested in it too…

i just started last week. if you put your mind to it, it can be done in a day or two (learning hangul) :smile:

My advice… is to speak the language. Find a language partner in real life or online and practice speaking. The more you use the language the more you acquire it.
