About Study Korean Today
Thank you for checking our resources!
Hopefully they made learning Korean even just a little bit easier for you.
That’s the whole reason Study Korean Today was created. So that Korean learners have access to the best onilne materials available. Self study or in a classroom, we all have the same goal.
I’ve been living in Seoul for about a year now and I’ve been learning Korean for over 3 years!
Originally I started the Vocab list as a way to keep my own notes. But, after investing a ton of time into it and seeing how useful it was for me, I decided to share it!
Full disclosure, I still have a long way to go in my own journey becoming fluent in Korean. Which is why I’ve paid professional translators to work on the Google Sheet to ensure it’s accuracy! There’s still a lot of work to be done so I consider it a work in progress that will be an even better resource in the future!
The main motivation I had for starting the Google Sheet was to help me tell the difference between synonyms. In most cases, dictionary definitions aren’t detailed enough to fully understand the meaning of a word.
I found myself spending a lot of time looking for context and seeking advice from native speakers. After countless hours, I’ve managed to research a good amount of the most common nouns, adjectives, and verbs.
Being able to see the real life context for these words is especially helpful to beginners.
Of course there’s more to learning a language than just memorizing vocab. The other half of my studies have been using Talk to me in Korean for grammar.
On page 3 of the Google Sheet you’ll find outlines of the grammar lessons I’ve completed so far. I’m also doing my best to add each of the example sentences featured in the TTMIK pdf lessons.
My goal is to one day make this a community project that can take contributions from Korean learners around the world.
Until then I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated with the progress!
