My Talk To Me In Korean (TTMIK) Story!
I have many friends who ask me about Korea. And one of the most common questions I get is recommendations about learning Korean language. Well, there are many ‘good’ sites but most of it are too “academic,” one lesson is too compressed making it hard to understand, no visuals or it’s not updated. One day, one of my friends posted a question on her Facebook wall regarding a particular Korean grammar. One of the answers posted was a link. I was very surprised because the explanation was exactly what I wanted to tell her, even way better hahahaha and it was explained in a very creative manner! That was the start of me becoming a listener, a student and a fan of Talk To Me In Korean (TTMIK)!
The good thing about the website is that it’s accessible anywhere. People from all over the world can access it in their own time at their own pace. If you have plans of coming to Korea in the future or you are scheduled to come to Korea as an exchange student or you just wanna learn and interested in Korean language and Korea, TTMIK is the best way/thing to start! In my case I read, watch and listen to it while I’m on a subway or bus making my time so worth it. I’ve already reached the highest level of Korean language class at my school but I still find TTMIK very helpful. I am not saying that learning Korean language at language schools especially in universities is not good. I personally think they’re doing their job well. But, if you can learn Korean through these two venues, why not do both right? ^^ There are many reasons why I like TTMIK. If I were to mention some, one would be the nature of how it’s delivered and it’s not heavy to digest.
