Topics to practice speaking in Korean: Language learning (From Beginner to Advanced) 2020

So you also do not know what you should speak about during your next skype call ?

Me!!!

I know I am not the only one with this problem, hence I am compiling a list of topics I have talked about and hope to speak on in German, french and Korean in my language exchange voice call (hellotalk to be specific). If you have ideas, provide them in the comment section below.

NOTE: I am updating the list with time… so subscribe to get updates

Beginner

Self-Introduction

Do you know how you introduce yourself in Korean yet ? This may seem trivial but I find it to be a good starting point to learning how to speak. Besides, you are most likely going to introduce yourself very often as an absolute beginner.

Write down the phrases commonly used for self-introduction. Try to start with child friendly ones not phrases you’d use for an interview or new product presentation. Once you have your list, search for the translations on naver dictionary. Make sure you copy and paste the phrases provided either by Vlive or in the examples section. and not the literal translation. This is because we are trying to sound natural not bookish.

What languages do you speak already ?

Are you learning any other language outside of Korean ? If yes, practice listing them one by one. By doing so, you learn the way these languages are expressed in Korean. If you feel a bit inspired or motivated, you could go a bit further and speak about the journey of learning those languages. Additionally, one could also compare Korean against those languages.For instance,  which of them do you enjoy learning and why; what is the hardest thing about learning Korean vs <language> etc.
