Thank you for visiting!
Thank you for all the hard work you do it helps a lot 🙂
Hi! Thank you. Your comments keep me motivated to learn more Korean.
Hiii! Help me plz!! I really need a text of BLOCK B’s 3rd teaser… It’s really-really important…
Aww…they all look so cute in the 3rd teaser.
I wish I could make transcription of it but there are parts that I can’t decipher. You should ask a Korean if it’s really really important.
If you don’t mind me asking, what is your native language?
Hi, sure I don’t mind. My mother tongue is Indonesian.
Hello. I found your blog by accident. I’m learning Korean myself and after I read this blog, I become more confident to learn it by myself ^^ Thanks you for making a great blog ^^ and nice to meet you 🙂 I’ll visit more often.
Hi, Angel. 반가워요.Thank you for your kind comment. Yes, sure, we can do it! Let’s learn together.

Hi Mba, Thanks for following me back. I was exciting finding you blog that attractive. Boosting my passion to keep doing self study Korean 😀
Definitely will come often to your blog.
I’m really newbie in Korean, need to boost extra effort to move forward…
I’m Balinese, so nice to know that there is Indonesian who share the same passion 😀
@fluentkorean is an interesting find. Thank you for sharing resources on your blog. Kayaknya kalau di Bali ketemu banyak turis Korea ya.

너무좋은사이트 이예요! 계속해주세요! Great help, thanks
좋은 말씀해주시니 감사합니다. 자주 놀러오셨으면 좋겠습니다.
I stumbled upon your blog while googling “self-study Korean” 🙂 Thank you for being an inspiration! Without your experiences of self-studying Korean, I would have never tried it myself. Now, I am really happy self-studying Korean and I’ve started a blog about my own experiences too 🙂 Nice to meet you and I’ll definitely continue to visit 🙂
안녕하세요! 저는 독학으로 한국어 배우는 사람이에요 ㅎㅎ 저도 인도네시아 사람인데요. 반가워요!
언니가 한국어 정말 잘하시네요. 부러워요 ㅜ 저도 한국어 더 열심히 공부할거에요! ^^/
저도 반가워요. 잘하기는요. 아직 멀었는데요. 한국어 잘하고 싶어서 고민 많이 하거든요. Qiqi 씨는 어떻게 그렇게 잘하죠? 예, 공부 열심히 하렴. ㅋㅋ
제가 독학으로 한국어 배웠어요 ㅎㅎ힘들지만 재미있어요 ㅋㅋ제 블로그 팔로우해줘서 감사해요 언니 >__<
Hello. Thanks for following my blog. I returned the favor.
Hi, Charm! I follow your blog because you record your Korean learning. No need to follow me back but thank you.
Hi! I really love your blog! ^O^ I came upon your blog when I was searching about 스티(you own his albums? WOAH- so lucky!) Similar to you, I would like to try to learn Hanguel myself, but I’m too afraid to converse or practice pronouncing in korean(I did manage to remember the alphabet at least-a long way to go still!) My reason for learning korean? Of course to understand Kpop CX also, finally understanding kdrama without english subs haha..I have skimmed through your blog a bit(I will be back to thoroughly look upon interesting links!) OuO can you please give me tips upon learning korean(being able to write, speak and read) I would love any advice you can spare! (^.^)
Also, I would like to recommend a song(seeing how you like Block B and 스티 )
(This song have elements of both rap and ballad-much like the style of 스티)
Thank you! ㅅㅇㅅ
Oooh… I’m intrigued. I like this song, and his voice, too. Thank you for the recommendation, Dawn.
I love reading your blog.
By the way, could you show me the way to create text with links on the right sidebar like yours?
Online Korean Dictionaries
국립국어원 표준국어대사전 (国立国語院標準国語大辞典)
It’s the “Link” widget from blog dashboard. Found it? I enjoy reading your blog, too. Thank you for always clicking Like. 🙂
Oh, I see. Thank you very much ^^
Thank you thank you thank you! Your links and reviews and tips helped me so much~! Like you, I learned Japanese before starting to learn Korean, and I was having a difficult time finding good textbooks and figuring out how to practice handwriting hangul. It seemed resources for Japanese language learning were everywhere while any help for Korean language learning were scarce and mostly outdated, or extremely expensive. (I can’t believe I never thought to just make a page with blocks myself…D’oh.)
This is such an awesome blog. Very encouraging!
わあー すごいなー (´꒳`∗)
Noken mo TOPIK mo…ganbarimasu~~
Just discovered this site today, and it’s really helpful! I’m in the Korean learning space too and I think what you’re doing here is fantastic! Thought I’d just say “hey” and I hope you keep it up!
hello i was just looking your “how to practice writing Hangul” post. https://koreanvitamin.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/how-to-practice-writing-hangul/
and i was wondering what the characters are in the second red box. I don’t know what the squiggly like character is…i’m new to Korean and i’m trying to branch out my handwriting because my hand writing looks like the typed hangul. please reply back :)))
Red box? If you want to learn how to read hangul, you can search “how to read hangul” on YouTube or Google or just get a textbook for beginners.
Hello. I noticed that you review Korean textbooks. Would you be interested in reviewing some of ours. Please contact me if you are interested.

thankyou very much for all the information you put here! i’ll always visit to improve my korean 🙂 can i ask you a favor? can you explain me how korean grammar works?
Thank you for reading. I don’t know the shortest way to answer your question but I think for Korean language, conjugation is the most important because that’s where you express your intention.
Thank you so much for all your posts!! I’m learning Korean so it helps, I’m learning so much:) Keep it up ❤ Hwaiting!!!
Thank you for taking time to visit. 화이팅~
Hi! I can’t figure out how to leave a comment on one of your blog posts.. But I was wondering if you had any screenshots of the “2000 Essential Korean Words – Intermediate” ebook? I have the beginner book in paper form and I’m interested in the intermediate version, but I don’t really want to spend so much money on shipping. So now I’m considering purchasing the ebook version and I’m just kinda looking for an idea of how the content is structurized in the digital version. 🙂
The e-book one is cheaper but it’s easier to flip through a physical book than e-book. TwoChois website has some preview pages of the book: http://www.twochois.com/2000-essential-korean-words-for-intermediate/ Isn’t it pretty much the same format as the beginner one? I’m not sure, though.
Thank you for the quick reply! 🙂 So, just to make sure, the ebook file comes with scanned images and the content hasn’t been converted to plain text to make it more “ebook-like”? That would mean that you can only zoom in and out and that you can’t actually change the text size through the menu like you would with a “normal (text)” ebook, right? I honestly just need the book to create a new Memrise course for myself, I rarely flip through the pages of my beginner book tbh. I’ve found a list of the intermediate book on a flashcard site, but I prefer keeping the content divided by chapters so buying the book would be convenient. Hmmm.
The book is in pdf format on Ridibooks, not epub, so the pages look like the original version. By the way, Ridibooks only lets you access this e-book on digital devices, not computer.
Thanks for confirming that for me. I have a tablet, so I should be fine.
OK. I’ve never thought about the chapters, only whether I understand the sentences. Ridibooks tweeted to me once in English. Maybe they answer inquiries in English, too.
Hello there! I am Sarah! I am very happy to have found this blog! I just found myself wanting to learn the Korean language. I really don’t know where to start. I don’t have any idea which between Romanized Korean or Hangul Korean is more preferable when in comes to learning the language. Would it be okay with you to suggest how and where on earth I am going to start my learning? 🙂 I hope that you’d be able to help me with this. Thanks. 🙂
Hi, Sarah! You won’t use romanization to communicate in Korean, romanization is like ‘training wheels’, once you get used to hangul, you won’t need them anymore. I’d recommend to start by learning hangul and learning how to type, find a textbook or Korean language course… just whatever you think will be fun for you to do. Good luck…!
안녕하세요 :)) I just learn Korean Language for 2 weeks. That’s lucky for me to find your blog 🙂 ~ 지금 연세 한국어를 공부합니다 :)) 저음 공부해서 어렵습니다 ~ 하지만 연심히 공부하겠습니다~ 🙂

Thank you. Click the three dots in the bottom right-hand corner & you will see ‘Follow’.
I’m studying Korean course for beginners now in King Sejong Institute..
Can I ask you about the mid term exam?
How was the exam? What of questions they normally put in the exams? Is there any midterms samples we can find somewhere?
I’m very worried about this ..
Hi, Z, I’m self- taught. I never took a class in King Sejong Institute. But I suppose what they test on exams must be what they taught you before, in classes? If you practice reading, listening, writing, and speaking your sentences from the previous lessons well, you should be fine on exams. Don’t worry. If you fail one exam, just take it again. 🙂 Besides, you don’t learn Korean for exams, you learn so you can use your Korean in your real life, right? Good luck! 시험 잘 봐요~
Hi there. First of all let me tell you, this blog is amazing. I’m mexican and I’ve started studying korean as of lately. I know that, fortunately, there are lots and lots of sources and pages on internet for learning it….but having someone who is doing such an effort to share with us their knowledge and the best information out there…that’s amazing, really! I have to thank you for helping us and running this site, your work here is truly appreciated! really, many many many thanks!
Thank Korean Vitamin for your reply!
The midterm exam was easy except the listening…
The listening wasn’t that difficult too but there is no time and they were talking too fast..
We had 15 questions for the listening and 20 question for the reading and writing, that is 35 questions in 30 minutes only..
They say the final exam is more important. At least we have an idea about what type of question we have to expect ..
I’m glad you did well on the test.😊
