Culture Chat: Is it okay to do this in Korea? (Age matters)
Test Your Korean Listening – TTMIK Level 1
I want to take a second here though and mention an important thing about TTMik: this isn’t supposed to be a super powerful language. It’s not Racket, Common Lisp, or Haskell. I intended it mostly as something fun that people could do some small projects within their spare time. It does have a lot of neat features that I think other languages are missing though (I’ll get to some of them soon) and it’s supposed to be very easy to learn so that you’re not stuck learning C++ syntax + class/object structures all over again just for another language.
Yea so I realize right off the bat that most of what’s here are pure syntactic sugar but this is a very simple example – though not quite at the level of BASIC, and Ttmik would be following in Python’s footsteps by providing an interactive interpreter for users to input code into. The C++-like syntax with braces, semi-colons, etc is there to make the language look somewhat familiar so that it’s easier for people to pick up. Think also provides some pretty neat features like support for default argument values (like in Python), control structures like if-else if-else, while loops, and many more – which are all very standard and well known amongst other languages. So what you have above is just about everything you need to start having fun with Ttmik!

So what do people who have actually used Ttmik think? Well, a few weeks ago I got an email saying that the editor has been released, and since then several people have helped in adding features like support for things like variables, enumerations/enums (something like this is missing from almost every other language if you ask me), switch statements, etc.
Duolingo’s Korean course covers only basic vocabulary. As such, users should not expect to be fluent in the language by studying solely on this app and without practicing outside of it.
Yes! In order to become fluent in a new language, you need to understand grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. … The key is to keep going and we make it easier with our Korean learning program.
The content on Talk To Me In Korean is mostly free, with a small selection of paid items. Since 2009, TTMIK has been working to provide creative and engaging learning tools for Korean learners of all levels.
The short answer: Korean is not too difficult. Compared to other languages, I’d say that it falls under “moderately difficult” – harder to achieve fluency than French or German but easier than Chinese and Arabic.
Korean might not seem as easy to learn as languages like French or Portuguese, but it doesn’t have to be nearly as difficult.
In general, it will take around 1200 hours to progress from a basic intermediate level of Korean abilities. You’ll need more practice, so double that number to 2400 hours to become fluent with this basic math.
I adore TTMIK’s courses and workbooks. They’re succinct and have just the right amount of English and Korean, making them ideal for someone who just started learning hangul but isn’t yet able to read it well. I appreciate how each lesson is brief, allowing you to study as much or as little new vocabulary and grammar as you desire, depending on your learning requirements.
90 Day Korean is a fantastic Korean course. The style in which the material is presented and the straightforward approach it’s explained make the language seem far less frightening than I anticipated. 90 Day Korean may help you go from knowing nothing about Korean to having a decent foundation in just 90 days.
The signers are not only well-versed in the book’s content, but also in its cultural background. They’re excellent at explaining the sociocultural context for word use, especially in modern Korean. They always talk about how usage rates differ depending on whether they’re printed or spoken language, as well as people’s differing opinions on such matters. So much for free stuff; it’s available on a variety of platforms.
Standard delivery takes 2-3 weeks from the date of shipment to reach you, and 3-5 business days for DHL, but can sometimes take longer due to uncontrollable factors like customs clearance, holidays, or postal worker strikes.
Duolingo’s Korean course covers a lot of basic words, making it an excellent starting point. However, this program does not go beyond the basics, so users should not expect to become fluent at such a low level.
