Dear Korean Learners,

Since I know almost all of my readers here are really into learning Korean, I decided to write this post to share some of the resources I use to learn Korean.  And the best of all, they are all free.  Yes, you can learn Korean online for free!  It’s that amazing?  As much as you and I enjoy learning from Korean songs, it will be good to have formal lessons and other ways to get the language as well.  The more ways you use to learn Korean, the faster you can learn it.  So try all of them and see which one works for you.

1. The one I use a lot is  Here they have podcast of classes that ranges from beginning level to advanced level.   They have video lessons as well so if you have your ipod, you can actually see the video.  However, the videos are mainly for beginning lessons.  You can even subscribe to get a free Korean word a day.  They also have a basic and premium subscription so you can follow along with the class but those you need to subscribe for a fee.

2. – It gives you 200 expressions in Korean.  It’s good if you need a crash course quickly.

3. –Started by one of the guys from Koreanclass101, it also has a lot of free Korean lessons.

4. Sogang University Program– Offers complete lessons with a focus to improve your spoken Korean.

5. Visit Korea – That’s the official tourism site for Korea but it also teaches you Korean.  It also has information on language programs in Korea.  So for those who really want immersion, this is where you can find out where to study in Korea.  I actually really enjoy the Korean language adventure with the animation.

6. Online Intermediate College Korean – This is more for intermediate Korean learners and it has complete lessons with audio, homework and exercise.  I find them very helpful and I often refer to this site when I write my blog to reference grammar points.

7. Korean Study Room – This site has a lot of useful sentences.  But it’s not really complete lessons and you have to know how to read Hangul.

I believe these are the best resources to get you started and going.  There are other resources that I will share with you all later.

Do you have a resource that you like and want to share with us?  Please comment and let us know about it.

    I have used many of the sites on your list as well. I moved over to Talk to Me in Korean after my subscription at Korean Class 101 ran out. I think that both are excellent ways to learn Korean and always look forward to listening to the latest episodes.
