Agreed! Or at least a timeline for it would be encouraging.

I am glad to hear that you all are interested in learning Korean! We on the Korean team have been working hard for months to get the EN for KR course out of Beta. Once out of Beta, we hope to get the go-ahead to start on the reverse course.

In order to graduate from Beta our team must sustain a report rate of less than 3 reports per 100 users for two weeks. This past week our report rate fell below 3 for three consecutive days before shooting back up to 3.3. We have come a long way, but we still have months of work ahead of us.

I would strongly discourage you all from using the EN for KR course to learn Korean. The course is just not optimized for English speakers. Frustrated English speakers tend to bombard us with error reports, slowing us down and keeping the course stuck in Beta.

October 17, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PixelOwl

Yay! Thanks so much for some feedback!! I have introduced this course to a friend's daughter that wants to speak English more, and I saw that it's a bit unusual when she had to write answers in Korean, she had to think a bit before answering. Good luck with the final stretch!

October 18, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Croesus1983B

I understand what you mean. Had I helped develop the EN for KR course, I would have done things differently. Unfortunately, I did not join the team until after the course had entered Beta and by then it was too late to make any meaningful changes. All we can do now is improve on the current EN for KR course and hope that the same mistakes are not made in the future.

As of today, our report rate has fallen to 3.1 reports per 100 users.

October 18, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Croesus1983B

Update: Our report rate has risen above 3 only twice over the last two weeks. We are so close to graduating! Yesterday our report rate was 2.18.

November 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Croesus1983B

We just graduated from Beta!

November 17, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Croesus1983B

The Korean Team has yet to get the go-ahead to start on the reverse course. This may be due to technical problems. We have also yet to hear of any plans to develop a Tree 2.0 for the EN for KR speakers course.

On a positive note, Duolingo has recently given the Korean Team permission to recruit more contributors!

I love Duolingo for Irish! I can't find anything near as effective. I do enjoy TTMIK (Talk to me in Korean) for Korean. I learn more than just the vocabulary or how to say it, but also the why's behind it. They accompany video, audio, and pdf lessons together to immerse you in the language and culture in a way I haven't seen any other group of teachers do.

Of course, now I'd like to drill down on the vocab a bit more, where TTMIK doesn't really have a great platform for that. But still TTMIK, is excellent at what they do. I'll dig my brain into any form of learning that I can.

I'm curious how the Korean lessons will be presented at Duolingo. I'm sure it'll be a great accompaniment to places like TTMIK.

It would be amazing if they added Korean sometime! I love talktomeinkorean for grammar, but Duolingo's setup that reinforces vocab is something that I could REALLY use!

Please add it to the incubator soon~

YESSS! Dying to! My mother's side are all south korean so I, born in America, don't know korean. Although not many people would want to know korean (since it isn't in Europe, there is only one country that uses it, and it's next to one of the world's most hated dictators) Korean culture is spreading fast with k-pop. Korean culture is really cool though! Korean barbecue is AMAZING!

I don't think Duolingo will be adding it for sometime. It might be one of the last added languages to the site. But adding Korean would be cool.

May 6, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chooley.

while your waiting for the Korean lessons to come out (maybe a while) try learning the Korean alphabet because you will get NO-WHERE if you don't learn it also it can be learn't within a day and mastered within a week!

December 26, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/S-Arredondo

I agree with you, and already can read and write Hangul. Just need LOTS of practice with vocabulary, grammar and sentence structure. Pretty much everything :)

This post has just been pointed out to me by someone else - in relation to another issue, so I just thought I would also add - to all you WONDERFUL people , who have been looking forward to Koren, that the course for Korean native learning English is now in Beta stage 2 - which means you can engage in this tree in its testing phase here : http://www.duolingo.com/course/en/ko .

And this is all a step closer for the reverse course being able to be developed. So things are progressing !

Yes, I came to this site a year or so ago looking for Korean but no luck. If anyone is interested in merely expanding their vocabulary and not on all of the other stuff the game 'Influent' on steam is an interesting way to walk through a 3D environment in first person perspective and learn the names and some associated words for common objects. It's much more simplistic in terms of teaching style than this site though so if you're interested I would strongly recommend you check out some actual game footage to make sure it's what you're after.

Hey, do you know about TalkToMeInKorean.com? They're a good way to learn progressively, and this book was a gift from a Korean friend and I found it to be reeeally good: MAGIC KOREAN: Mastering Korean Beginners. It teaches words and then gives dialogue to see how to use it. The conversation gets more Korean with each chapter. It's the best alternative I have found for learning Korean so far. I hope this helps you!

I really appreciate that a Korean module was developed for Duolingo, and have enjoyed practicing for many days now. My one concern is that some of the romanization of Korean phonetics is imprecise. For example, 우 sounds phonetically like "oo". But, 우 is romanized in Duolingo as "u" which can be misleading, since "u" can sound like "oo", but also "uh" or "you', depending on the specific English word. I think the early alphabet modules would be stronger if the phonetics were a little more precise. Peace, and good luck to all you Korean learners!

To start with, Korean has a different alphabet to the Latin one, so there is the fun of learning that. And it is so much more logical than our Latin alphabet, and how we use our Latin alphabet to describe sounds.
So far the best resource I have found for that is a combination of this memrise course ,
Combined with the notes I have taken as I have gone through my Korean language learning journey. You can check out the beginning of my notes by clicking here.

The other free resource I have found useful so far is manga Though it operates I believe only through apps or IOS apple system. I have been able to engage in the elementary levels for Korean - which I recommend checking out.

Also Usagiboy7 has also started a discussion as an Alpha Tester for Korean I can highly recommend following that.

Currently I am using Learning English from Korean here on Duolingo as a further engagement to my Korean studies, that I commenced a bit over a week ago.

I wish you all the best on this most interesting endeavor :D

The dream for duolingo is to have language courses for as many languages as there can be - as far as I can see. This of course is only my opinion.
It is amazing how it has grown in such a short time. And on such limited resources. Of course the reason it has been able to achieve this - is because of the volunteer, unpaid work that its users contribute.
We are indebted to the huge workload that occurs behind the curtain by the staff that run this site.
We are indebted to the enormous effort and hours so many contributors have put into these course, and the courses now are being produced by volunteers. This is how we have been able to have such a blossoming of a huge number of courses. We owe a huge debt to these people. And also the moderators who provide their time for free to help shape the friendly and learning environment - not infrequently under attack by some very unpleasant situations. For the functioning of our environment - it would not be possible without the service that these people do. And also of course to all of us language learners - who are the reason that this resource has been provided. It is us though that need to accept the responsibility of gratitude for the amazing resource we are able to enjoy for free.
Bringing our kindness and support to this environment is the payment of greatest value to allow this site to continue.

So in short - yes - there will be Learning Korean for English speakers, as soon as the resources available from within duolingo, and by the volunteer teams that build these course.

Taking the reverse course is not an efficient way to study Korean. In order to teach English concepts, the Korean used is often unnatural. There are all kinds of free resources on the web, as well as some reasonably priced sites that are excellent.

I want to learn korean so badly, is there anyone who can teach me??? :D

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Marwa, it's already available here on Duolingo. The course is in beta (so still has some mistakes and other problems) but you can join it. https://www.duolingo.com/courses

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/roberto727

Marwa, you need to determine how "badly" you want to learn in terms of time and money, and exactly what you mean by "learn." What is your purpose? Duoling provides an introduction to the language. With a focused hour every day, you might be able to complete the DL course in 4 months, with the necessary review to keep your tree "golden" while progressing. Of course this depends on your typing speed, your power of concentration, and your memory. But at the end of that time you will have learned less than 2000 words. You would be able to "get along" in Korea--use their transport, order food in a restaurant, make retail purchases, and carry on limited conversations relative to family, health, the weather, family, hobbies, etc, and would understand maybe about 1/2 of most song lyrics and drama dialogue. If you are in the position of Micheal (below) needing the language to keep a job, and needing it in a hurry, you should consider more formal lessons, expending multiple hours per day studying and paying for instruction. If finances are an issue, you might use https://www.howtostudykorean.com/unit0/ in conjunction with DL. (DL is more fun, but you will learn the grammar faster and in greater depth on the "how to" site, plus learning about 4000 words over the course of 133 lessons ( a number that will likely increase before you finish.) For more resources to investigate, check out the following post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23695875

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/roberto727

This is a very old discussion. Korean lessons have been available on DL for well over a year. However, if you really want to "be prepared", DL is not the place for a fast "crash course. If you are on a low budget there are excellent free courses online from Talk to me in Korean and How to Learn Korean. For a very reasonable fee there is Rocket Korean and Korean Class 101. LingQ is also available for free, but it is better to invest $10/ month to take full advantage of what is offered. It's a wonderful country with very gracious people.
