I'm excited for Korean as well! I can't wait for the course to hatch here on Duolingo, though I've been studying independently using Talk To Me In Korean. (( 100% recommend it if you haven't discovered them already ))

Yeah, I've been using TTIK as well! Love it! I'm not far in the lessons, only lesson 10... but I feel like I've learned so much already :) 'We're studying some of the same language, let me know if you ever want to practice!

What level are you in on TTIK? Have you bought their books or are you just using their online resources? How do you practice speaking? I'm excited about DuoLingo version - hoping it's similar to Spanish and Portuguese with opportunities to voice record

I'm still at level 1 at the moment; I wish I could spend more time focusing on Korean, but I have several other things to do. I have been learning through their online sources, whether it's on their site or any of their YouTube videos.

I may listen to their audio lessons as I'm working on something else, so I have the opportunity to learn something new. I personally don't know any native speakers, but I do practice saying the terms aloud either during the lesson or throughout the day. Maybe I'll purchase a few books someday, but for now I practice reading and writing during my free-time.

Though I haven't gotten very far, I've learned a lot :^)

I do the same, lots of listening and repeating, I try to speak the phrases I learn during the day... and I also watch a lot of Korean dramas which helps with listening skills. I don't know any native speakers, hoping to be able to find a whatsapp group here once the class starts!

I am so pumped for this! I will have to finish up atleast one of my other languages before Korean, but the first comprehension can be practiced right away, since there are alot of Korean people here in my area. I want to be able to say more than Hello... Anyway, best wishes! and by the way, what is your motivation for learning Korean, besides the fact that it is awesome?

I got hooked after watching KDramas! Fell in love with the language and wanted to learn... Been doing self study on talktomeinkorean.com - looking forward to adding DuoLingo !

Yup, im waiting for it too, want to see how it turns out. Finally Koreaboos will stop singing their stupid lyrics nonstop.

I hope it doesn't become another Japanese or Swahili.
