[REVIEW] TTMIK Level 2 Book Review

Posted by Carrie Ang 1 comments Links to this post
여러분 안녕하세요...
Ever wanting to learn a new Language - Korean Language in particular? It wouldn't be necessarily difficult to master a foreign language if you have interest in learning it. For me, in particular have only been officially learning the Language after my trip back from Korea (which is around April this year). Only after 5 months, I'm able to read Hangul by my own *well that's in slow pace right as I'm super busy with work, Only able to study 1-2 hours per week*. The best part of learning Korean is that I'm able to watch my fav Drama, Movies & variety shows with less English subs. Not to mention K-pop songs! You guys out there has no idea how torturing it would be for k-pop fans to listen to those songs & not understand a single word of it. ㅋㅋㅋ

Okay let's cut the crap & get down to the actual informative part. To learn Korean, you have to be able to read the Hangul characters first. Once you've the hang of it, that's where your journey starts. There are many ways you can engage either by taking classes, self-taught reference books/materials, online-buddy system/penpal..the list goes on. But, I've found TTMIK to be the best (refer as TalkToMeInKorean). TTMIK is an non-profitable organization that teaches Korean for absolutely FOC. All thanks to the passionate teachers from TTMIK. Their lessons are easy enough to grasp with a total of 9 Levels. (Materials & podcasts are available for downloads) The best part is that all the TTMIK 선생님은 are very interactive with the audience. With regular updates from their websites, FB pages & twitter. 

With their recent Level 1 & Level 2 book launch, the reviews for it has been encouraging. The TTMIK Level books are of the lessons from their online lessons as well. BUT why buy the book when you can download all the lessons for free??
Well it's a way to support your favourite 선생님 for all their hard work!
