90 Day Korean

I was very impressed with 90 Day Korean’s Inner Circle course. Their course is split up into four modules, each lasting 90-days. They do an exceptionally good job of simplifying Korean and explaining things in an easy to understand way. They add in little psychological tricks to make things easier to remember. Better yet still, you’ll get access to a personal Korean coach that you can use to ask any questions you may have.

One of the most well-known language learning courses. In the past, I had a hard time recommending them because they were too expensive. But, they’ve recently added a subscription option which makes things much  affordable. Compared with other courses, Pimsleur is better at getting you to speak and actively use the Korean you’ve learned. However, this comes at the cost of clear grammar explanations.

italki is one of the most useful websites for learning any language, Korean included. On their platform, you can book private classes directly from a tutor. It’s much cheaper than you may expect, often less than $10 per hour. Additionally, they have lots of useful extra features, such as language exchanges, and their notebooks section where you can get free feedback on your writing.

Talk To Me In Korean

Talk To Me In Korean (TTMIK) is one of the most often recommended resources available. This site has a ton of content for those learning Korean, some of which are free and others require purchasing. The material is available for everyone from beginner to advanced speakers. You can find books, video lessons, audio lessons, tips for learning Korean and a bunch more. TTMIK is definitely worth checking out.

KoreanClass101 is an excellent resource for finding lots of high-quality audio lessons. The content available ranges from the beginner to advanced levels. Lessons typically focus on a dialogue spoken very naturally. Throughout the lessons, there are lots of explanations to make sure you’ve understood the content. Beginner level lessons include lots of English which is gradually phased out as you move up levels.

Speechling is both an incredibly useful app and website that allows you to get serious help on improving your speaking skills. The value it provides relative to the cost is almost unmatched and the amount of feedback you are able to get with the Unlimited Plan definitely makes it worth it. Even the free version proves to be rather robust allowing you to easily practice mimicking native speakers. Overall an amazing resource to help improve your pronunciation in Korean.

Naver Dictionary

Naver is the most used search engine in Korea. They also have an excellent online dictionary which lets you look up words in Korean or English. More advanced learners may appreciate the Korean-Korean dictionary as well. Additionally, you’ll find lots of example sentences, audio recordings, along with their word of the day, and more.


Memrise is right up there with Duolingo among the most popular language learning resources. It’s not so great for teaching Korean as a whole but is quite good for teaching individual words. It basically uses flashcards that have been designed to be a bit more fun. While there are some courses created by Memrise, the majority are user added. Because of this, the quality and material taught can vary significantly depending on the course.

Lingodeer is a lot like Duolingo, except much better for Asian languages. Their app is very affordable and includes tons of lessons and exercises for you to practice what you’ve learned. Their wide variety of exercise types helps keep things interesting and challenges you to learn all aspects of the language. They also have in-depth grammar explanations and game elements to help keep you motivated.

StoryLearning Korean

StoryLeaning Korean Uncovered comes from Olly Richards, the creator of the super popular polyglot blog. It’s quite a bit different than most courses as it revolves around an engaging story. It can be a bit more challenging than other courses, as you begin reading somewhat long texts right off the bat. Overall, I found it to be a more fun way to approach language learning that will be great for some but not ideal for others.
