How to Read and Write Korean (Video Series)

Hi, and welcome to class #1 of this video mini-series! The videos are all just below, but before you start, make sure to click the big banner just below here to download (and print off if you’d like) the handout we use in the videos.

And after you finish the videos, if you have any questions or would just like to leave a comment, then you can do that down below the videos. Down in that area is also where you can download the mp3-file recordings of the vowel-consonant blends read by a native Korean-speaker.

And just one last thing…

To save video “buffering” time, you may want to set two videos to buffer at the same time, that way while you’re watching one, the next one will be fully buffered and ready to roll when you’re ready for it. To set a video to buffer, just start the video and then stop it right away. Starting the video will start the buffering process and then while it is paused, it will continue to buffer. Okay, without further ado…

If you found those videos helpful...

Class #2, also about an hour's worth of videos, is also available [totally free] and teaches the rest of everything you'll need to know to be able to read literally anything and everything you will ever see in Korean.  Ever.  But, it's actually in the 'Members' Area.

The Members' Area is totally free to enter, and along with those videos...

  • because you'll be on our "Members" list, you'll also get access to any new videos we put up, all aimed at making Korean WAY easier to learn by giving video explanations of the basics in plain, easy-to-understand English.
  • there's also an info page all about Korean Digital Academy and how it is we're able to set up live classes with a native Korean speaker that fit perfectly into YOUR schedule
  • you'll get my email address so you can contact me and ask any questions you'd like about Korean or about the classes here
  • And last (but certainly not least!), if you want to get your Korean rockin' and rollin', you can also find out how you can get a full month of classes here at KDA.com (both video lectures and live practice sessions) for about the price of a couple large cappuccinos at your local way-over-priced coffee lounge.

So head here, and I'll see you inside!
