Study with Korean Animation Characters!

Hopefully this card with make you happier than Kyungsoo^^

So, I'm studying for the TOPIK and I really REALLY want to improve my listening before the big test. I'm doing everything I can!

Here's one fun tip I have from my studying :D

뽀로로 - Pororo!

I actually watch Pororo in Korean on YouTube to test my listening skills! (Check out the channel here!) They also post the episodes in English so you can compare when you aren't sure of a word :D Plus, its a little kids show so the vocab and grammar isn't that hard!

뿌카 - Pucca!

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find Pucca in Korean, even though it is a Korean character but you can watch her full episodes on YouTube! The shows tend to not have a ton of dialogue and are just fun to watch!

Do you guys use any special techniques to help your listening skills?

I love Pucca!!! I watched that as a baby child and I miss it so much!!!!
Ooh I should check out Pororo sometime. I think Running Man helps a little with vocabulary because there is so much repetition of the same words~
Lol I thought I was the only one who watched pororo 😂
I use kdrama and kpop hehe
@SabrinaSakura, nope... we do too

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
