가야 할 사이트 Must-go sites

Just want to share some great websites with you. Unless otherwise stated, they are written mainly in English. Do visit them if you are interested in learning more about the Korean culture and language. If you know of other useful websites, simply comment below and I will review and add to this list.

Korean Language Learning Sites

Talk to Me in Korean: Lead by Hyun Woo Sun, this team of dedicated Korean teachers are simply amazing. No matter which level you are or think that you are at, there is always something to learn from their lessons. You just have to see it for yourself!

Learn Korean LP’s Korean Guide: This is a Korean grammar guide created by Luke to help Korean language learners by putting forward grammar points in an easy-to-understand manner.

Hangukdrama: A personal language learning blog that is created by Shanna, a fellow Singaporean. She shares her language learning journey, resources and links to blogs that are written by other Korean language learners.

Korean Language Notes: As the name already suggests, this is a really interesting blog where the author, Gerry Bevers, pens down his discoveries and insights as he learns Korean. He covers a wide range of topics and I am full of respect for his passion in the language. 

Korean Language Learning Resources

A Fairytale Trip (Junior Naver): You need to know some Korean to navigate around. Afterall, this website is not targeted at foreign language learners per se but it is for Korean parents looking for stories to entertain their kids or even for the kids themselves (which means the level is good for us too!). However, do note that many dialogues in the videos are in Banmal (informal) and you cannot pause to review the subtitles (some videos do not have subtitles).

Lang-8: This site is not restricted to the Korean language. Log in, post something in the language you are learning and a native speaker will correct you. It is a language exchange platform so be sure to help others who wish to learn your native language as well.

Entertainment

Dramabeans: I simply love this website! As the name suggests, there are drama reviews and news about the Korean entertainment scene. The posts are authentic with an undercurrent of sarcasm every now and then. Most importantly, it is very up-to-date and there are loads of pictures to oogle at.
