Listen & Repeat: The Korean Verbs Guide (audio + e-book)
Jun 30 2017 9 mins  
How often do you listen to something in Korean and repeat it out loud? It is a very good way to practice speaking and to get yourself ready for your next real-life Korean-speaking situation. We know that a lot of our students like to listen to audio material while they are on the go, and we just finished working on our first “Listen & Repeat” course, based on our popular book, The Korean Verbs Guide. Get the audio course here: https://mykoreanstore.com/products/listenrepeat-verbs How to use the audio course: (It’s very simple. Just listen and repeat!) Listen to each track and repeat everything out loud. You will be given a pause for each word and phrase. After hearing the English portion for each phrase, try saying the Korean translation before you hear the correct pronunciation by a native speaker. We recommend that you listen to everything at least twice over, so that you can say everything as comfortably and confidently as possible. —— LINKS —— 📕 Thanks for watching and studying Korean with our lessons!

In today’s episode of Trending Topics In Korea, we talk in detail about what 꼰대(ggondae) is and a recent incident that occurred involving a certain Korean politician. The term 꼰대 generally refers to someone who is haughty and thinks that they are more important than other people, and they also have a big sense of entitlement. Traditionally, 꼰대 was usually older people, but these days people say that even some young people are like that, making themselves be called 젊은 꼰대 (young ggondae). GGONDAE SELF-CHECK You are a GGONDAE if: - When meeting someone new, checking their age comes first, and using informal language with anyone younger. - You often tell stories of ”when I was your age…” - You get offended at lower ranking co-workers who come in later than them. - You look for the flaws in a lower ranking co-worker who is popular. - You often talk about ties to high ranking officials, company executives, famous celebrities, etc. - You are not annoyed by lower-ranking co-workers who don’t give you coffee or cigarettes automatically or don’t grill samgyeopsal at company dinners and eventually make you do things on your own. - You tell lower ranking co-workers, who do a job in a new way, the “right” way to do the job. - You tell people to freely express their opinion, but later you find yourself giving your answer first. - You can call someone out on their clothes and greeting etiquettes, because it’s related to work. - You can’t understand people who have to miss company outings or picnics because of personal circumstances.
