I love you in Korean

How do you say I love you in Korean? How do you tell someone you just want to be friends? After this free audio lesson you’ll know lots of useful words and phrases, from small-talk to dating in Korean.

Listen to the native speakers on the audio, and practice saying the Korean phrases aloud. Whether you want to make some friendly Korean conversation, or understand your favorite Korean TV drama, these might come in handy!

If you want to confess your love to someone, just say...

Download
사랑해요.
Sarang haeyo
I love you

Hopefully the answer will be…

저도 사랑해요.
Judo sarang haeyo.
I love you, too.

Pronunciation help for dating in Korean

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Korean pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Korean words and phrases, this lesson will help you.

Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each word or phrase, and compare it with the way a native speaker of Korean does. That’s right, with Rocket Languages voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Korean speaker!

And when you are ready test yourself using My Level and really power up your learning and recall. Just click the "My Level" tab above to get started!

I enjoy using this program and I've already recommended it to friends. You can go at your own pace and study whenever you have time. It's usable wherever you have internet access which is great! I like being able to download the audio so I can listen to it on my phone when I'm out. I definitely like being able to go back into lessons to review as well. I got it at a good price since it was on sale for the holidays. Yay! I have tried Rosetta Stone, but I like Rocket Language much better.
