If you are interested in learning Korean language online to a conversational level, here are some tips which will get you on the right track fast. Follow these tips and you discover the best way to learn in less than two months!
Most Korean language online approaches fail, because they do not focus enough on all of these aspects of learning the language. In particular, the areas of sentence structure and reinforcement are neglected. This fact applies to Korean courses online, tutors, and Korean classes equally.
That is because most courses were not designed to incorporate these features, and the course developers don’t want to invest the resources to re-engineer the courses. They don’t care if you succeed at Korean – they just want your money!
Learning Korean Language Online Tip 1: From the very start, make sure you focus on complete sentences, not individual words. There is a very good reason for this. If you focus on individual words, you will tend to try to directly translate the individual words from English to Korean. Of course, then you will end up with a garbled sentence which makes no sense in Korean, even though the word order is perfect in English.
The only way to overcome that is to grasp the nuances of Korean sentence structure right from the start. Then you will be essentially structuring the sentence in the correct Korean word order and you will master the language conversationally much faster.
The other important point about focusing on sentences instead of words is that you will be searching for vocabulary naturally. I don’t know the neurological reasons for it, but if your brain seeks out information it will retain the information much better than if you try to cram information into memory.
So focusing on complete sentences helps to expand your vocabulary faster than the act of learning vocabulary the old-fashioned way! It also helps you master thinking of a sentence as a native Korean speaker would.
Learning Korean Language Online Tip 2: You must practice Korean daily if you want to get conversational in the shortest time. This is why learning Korean language online programs or CD-based courses are the best approach. Weekly classes or weekly tutor sessions will not provide enough structured learning and you will not retain the information you learn as well. But if you spend one hour a day in a structured lesson session, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you are learning online compared to any other approach.
Just make sure that the course you choose exposes you appropriately to complete sentences right from the start!
