This is so useful
Jeremy and Johnson are very wise language learners and teachers. I’ve studied Korean for a long time from books and the internet, so my reading and writing skills are pretty good. But my speaking and listening skills have always been lacking and, for a while, I thought I would never be able to listen to anything in Korean or speak well. I’ve had a teacher for a while who is helping me with speaking and to build my confidence, but these guys taught me that everyone starts at the bottom, and we shouldn’t expect to improve immediately. That was just what I needed to hear.
I never listened to things in Korean because I couldn’t understand any of it anyway, so I thought it was useless. But these guys’ first podcast taught me that I was wrong in thinking that. I’ve been listening to Korean most days since then and my intonation while speaking has already improved after just a week! I can’t believe I wasn’t doing this for all the years I was learning.
What’s even more useful about this podcast is that there are two versions of each episode: a version in English and a version in Korean. Currently, I am listening to the English version first to pick up the content of the episode, and then I listen to the Korean version and try to listen to the flow of the episode and pick up words here or there. I’ve noticed myself becoming more comfortable while listening to Korean because I’m not trying really hard to pick out what each word means, I’m letting my subconscious take in the information and when there’s a word or phrase I recognise, it’s like I get a little alert in my mind that says “you know that bit!” without translating it into English.
Honestly, this is how I’ve always thought a language should be learnt, but I didn’t know how to go about it. Thank you Johnson and Jeremy for your amazing podcast!
I love this podcast. The quality of these two lovely guys’ voices and dialogue is truly heartwarming. Great learning tips about learning Korean and life in general. Thanks Jeremy and Johnson. 좋아해요.
Jonson and Jeremy have so much to offer. Their approaches to languages, learning and life in general are incredibly refreshing, authentic, positive, pragmatic, practical and fun; they also give you plenty of food for thought and motivation to be more attentive and creative in your learning journeys.
Insightful and inspiring - I’d highly recommend! Also check out their YouTube channels SpongeMindTV and Motivate Korean. You’ll be glad you did!
