KoreanClass101 Review – Good But Not A Standalone Course

Quick Review

Summary

Koreanclass101 has developed thousands of, mostly audio, lessons for Korean language learners. It’s excellent for those who want to improve their listening. The grammar and vocabulary content is also really good, being both clear and detailed. It can, however, be difficult trying to find the right lesson at the right time and the lack of a clear learning path could cause problems. It’s a handy tool to use alongside other resources or lessons but probably shouldn’t be used as a standalone course.

Quality

Mostly good, but some of the older lessons weren’t great.

Thoroughness

A ton of material for beginner and intermediate levels but limited at the advanced level.

Value

The vast library of listening material makes a subscription worthwhile.

Price

There are three subscription plans with lengths available from 1 month to 2 years, with many options in between.

Basic – $8/mo, $4/mo if you sign up for 2 years.
Premium – $25/mo, $10/mo if you sign up for 2 years.
Premium Plus – $47/mo, $23/mo if you sign up for 2 years.

Use the promo code “ALLLANGUAGERESOURCES” to save 25% on a subscription to KoreanClass101.

KoreanClass101 is quite good, but there are other Korean courses, such as 90 Day Korean worth considering.

Talk To Me In Korean Review – Good But Not Enough By Itself

Quick Review

Summary:

Talk To Me In Korean (TTMIK) offers audio, video and text materials for Korean learners of all abilities. They have a variety of free and paid courses available. The main course is well laid out and the supplementary lessons are all great quality offering some really fun and interesting ways to learn. However, there aren’t many ways to practice what you’ve learned, as such, it’d be best used alongside other resources and not as a standalone course.

Quality

The video lessons have high production value and can be fun to watch.

Thoroughness

Not enough material or opportunities to practice to only rely on TTMIK.

Value

A ton of free content!

Price

Most of the content is free to access. They also have a variety of paid books, audio and video courses with a range of prices.

Books: From $12 – $38 (packages also available)
