I am doing fine Jeremy. Also have been studying Korean on other sites. How is your Korean course going? B.T.W. Check the site [website removed by admin], they have great video lessons (the first one for free) Happy learning! 안녕히계세요!

glad to see there is still some people participating in the forums, we need to make the forums more active. im going good, I've also been studying Korean on other programs as well. I've been using Rosetta Stone Korean, i also pick up a few books on Korean language. Korean for Dummies,1 Korean student dictionary, 1 Korean bilingual pocket dictionary, and 1 Korean grammar book.

Hi Jeremy, I also use Rosetta Stone. Bought it recently. It's fun to use but the absence of grammar sometimes is confusing. Have the book Korean for Dummies too (found it in my bookshelf, bought it 5 years ago but never start reading it until now...). I use it for some grammar explanations but I don't like the absence of Hangul, it uses only Romanized words. Last sunday I checked the free site LiveMocha.com which has also a Korean course and you can help other people and they can help you. The Korean Course itself is not that good in my opinion. I also use a book "you can speak Korean" which a bought 10 years ago in Korea. And I watch the (free) video's of BusyAtom.com on the internet (you can find them on Youtube). Anyway, happy learning and speak to you later!

yeah i hated that that Korean for dummies didn't have hangeul writting. i have Korean a comprehensive grammar, one of the learners recommend that grammar book. it cost 65.00 USD but its totally worth it. im going to log out for a bit, happy learning.

I have also been study with other sites and tools. 1. Rosetta Stone 2. Pimsleur 3. Korean Class101 4. Korean Movies on Netflix I like the different perspective each approach offers. I can put in 2-3 times the effort by switching between the tools. After 30-60 mins in one tools I get a bored or tired. Then I switch tools and can easily to another 30-60 mins. Same language, but my brain is fooled into thinking it is something new and fresh.

i have korean class 101. i mostly use flash cards to study tho. i have a game called hanguel match for ipod touch really helps alot, helped me read alot faster. you should give it a try.

[website removed by admin] has the best flash card system I have found so far.

Jeremy V

i use physical flash cards. (change of subject) know what i found to be the most effective, is to surround yourself with Korean language, try reading Korean News paper ( http://www.koreadaily.com/index.html?branch=HOME) i also say everything to my family in Korean first then english, helps me get use to the langauge. best thing is to try not to translate it to english .

Netflix is fantastic for learning Korean if you are just starting out. I realize I am learing a lot more words than I thought, such as "noona" means sister. I have not been able to learn much hangeul from it, but when the words and sounds become more familiar, I think the hangeul will come a little more easily

yeah netflix does help a little. i use a game on the ipod for hangul its called hangul match. if you need any help with anything on Rocket Korean just ask.
