3 Language Learning Tips to Get You Started - Repetitive Listening, Language Exchange, and...

Repetitive Listening Material:

SpongeMind Podcast:

This is the English-Korean podcast that I do with my best friend and 형 Jonson.
We do two versions of each episode, one in English and one in Korean.
We cover the same three points in each episode so you can follow along somewhat with the context of what is being said by listening to the English version first and then listening to the Korean version after.


Jonson and I have created material SPECIFICALLY for repetitive listening. All the study materials are downloadable for free. If you go to the link below you'll see a folder with the MP3 files and a separate folder with the transcripts and another folder with the transcripts + translations and breakdowns. My advice is to choose one audio clip and listen to it for a week or so before looking at the study materials. After that, download the transcript with translations and breakdowns and casually look it over. The translations will help you to understand what is being talked about and the word for word breakdowns will help you to understand how the sentences are constructed.

I know that in the beginning of your journey, this content can seem a bit daunting. Don't worry! You're just getting used to the sounds, intonation, and overall flow of Korean.

Here's a great playlist:
They repeat the initial question in the beginning of the interview which makes these EXTRA awesome for repetitive listening

Here is a link to the Easy Languages youtube channel which I love! I use their Spanish videos all the time!

Remember to look for people who are around intermediate level so they can explain things to you in English.
And also, remember to HIDE yourself from search if you are a native English speaker.
