The Korean Language

Korean, the native language of about 80 million people, is the official language of both North and South Korea. It is also spoken in neighboring Yanbian, China. There are two standard dialects, Seoul (South Korea) and P'yongyang (North Korea). Pimsleur's Korean teaches the Seoul dialect of South Korea.

Be patient! It works!

The key to this program working is to be PATIENT. I’m reading a lot of reviews that seem to be upset by how quickly the lessons go and/or how context isn’t necessarily explained. I listened to the introductory chapters before Unit 1 and it literally says that lessons can and should be repeated until you can answer about 80% of the prompts correctly. Of course you’re not going to memorize a bunch of new words and phrases in 30 minutes and be able to retain them…you have to be patient and put in the work! It usually takes me 3-5 days before I feel comfortable moving onto the next lesson, but by the time I’m ready to move on, I know for sure that I’ve retained the information. I’m currently on Unit 12 and I still remember everything they throw at me from previous lessons.
As far as words and phrases in context, it’s another exercise in patience. The lessons teach you words/phrases that make sense in the context that they’re being taught in. If there’s a change or difference, it teaches you about it later in a new context. For example: in lessons 6-10 you learn numbers in the context of telling time. But in lesson 12, it starts teaching you about numbers in the context of money, and it explains that there’s a difference.
This program really is great. It’s well known that one of the best ways to start learning a language is to start trying to speak it little by little. The way this program is set up is very practical, and I found that I’m able to notice patterns in grammar by paying attention as the sentences are getting longer and more complex. Learning in the context of conversation rather than just memorizing vocabulary and random grammar rules is much more effective.

Good for beginners

A good way to start conversational Korean for absolute beginners. i. do recommend working alongside someone who speaks the language because some.ofnthe pronunciations are different

Most effective way to learn

I really find the Pimsleur method to be effective because you go by sound and memory only. You can avoid the flash cards and lists of words, etc because its straight from the audio to your memory. Sometimes I get the urge to look up a word to see exactly how it's pronounced but then I find when I do I start to say it differently. The way you can learn to speak with Pimsleur matches the tones and fluency I find in natural settings with native speakers. Thank you for these courses! I really find that I'm progressing and I look forward to learning more with the next set.
