Direction Words: How to Explore Korea!
When I first came to Korea as a student who knew NO Korean, it was a bit difficult to get around.
Google Maps was a mess, I didn't know enough Korean to use the apps, etc.
So now that I've got a handle on the language I wanted to share with you guys how to use the best directions app for Korea: Naver Maps! This is a great way to "walk" around Korea^^
The Korean government actually wouldn't turn over their maps to Google so Google could add it to Google Maps because Korea didn't want a competitor with Naver.
That's why Google Maps, while its getting better, is still not as accurate or up-to-date as Google! Words to know: 검색 - Search 길찾기 - Finding Way 출발 - Departure 도착 - Arrival 버스 - Bus 지하철 - Subway 추천 - Recommended
Thanks for watching and let me know if you have any questions^^
