Korean Learning Resources

Self-study Korean with Yonsei KLI on YouTube!

So I stumbled upon Yonsei KLI’s YouTube! I didn’t even know they had a YouTube, so I scrolled through and noticed it was only created at the end of 2015.

If you didn’t know, I studied in Yonsei KLI Level 4~6 in 2013, and I loved it!

I haven’t watched through all of them, but seeing as how slowly the teachers speak in the few I fast forwarded through, I think they are mainly teaching beginner Korean, including grammar points and vocabulary. I’m not sure why, but some have subtitles, while others don’t. Either way, it seems like a good resource for self-learners!

Here are some samples:

(The guy in the below video looks so familiar! I think I saw him around school before.)

The rest can be found on their YouTube here.

LEARNING JOURNEY; Daehan Course Completion Certificate

D325 211114; Um… Thanks for asking me to collect this 2 years after I completed the course. The girl was surprised that I only attended one level; only because Singapore’s standard is way too low for me. -_- Advance was actually more like Intermediate! I wasted time and money taking a level lower than my ability.

PERSONAL; A Teacher's Pick-Me-Up Comment :)

D247 040914; 힘들고 지칠 때 조샘이 쓴 글을 다시 읽고 힐링~ 정말 고마운 샘이다^^ 아.. 어학당에 남자 선생님이 많지 않아서 내 첫 선생님이 젊은 조샘이라는거 친구들이 부러웠다는 기억 ㅋㅋ 팬클럽도 있다던데! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 에휴! 한국에 있던 시간 너무나 그립다ㅠ 좀만 기다려라~ 내가 간다!

Whenever I’m having a difficult time or just sick of it all, I re-read my teacher’s comment and all is good again~ I’m really thankful to him^^ Ah.. I remember my friends were envious because there weren’t many male teachers in KLI and my first teacher happened to be this young male teacher, haha. I heard that he even had a fan club! Hahaha. Sigh! I really miss my time in Korea. T_T Wait a little while~ I’ll be there!

Korean Music

K-MUSIC; 한스 밴드 – 오락실

So TOPIK was yesterday. I took the Advance paper, as you might already know. I fought a battle and it wasn’t pretty. T_T It was just as difficult as I expected it to be, and this song came to mind. I first learnt it when I was in Level 4 of KLI, as it’s in the 읽기 book. Fun song. :)

Q&A; Yonsei Korean Language Institute

2013 Fall Term Graduation Ceremony
(2013 Fall Term Level 6 Graduation Trip / 2013 Fall Term Level 6 Graduation Debate)

Wow, has it really been a year since my last post? I really thought I’d be able to update with all my experiences whilst in Korea, but I just couldn’t afford the time to. Yonsei KLI’s Regular Program was really intensive! I also got really busy when I came home, hence the quietness.

A couple of weeks ago, I got an email asking me about KLI, and since I’ve been getting similar questions, I thought I’d just put them into a list for easy reference. Any future questions will also be added here. Please check if your question has been answered before asking.
