I used some years ago Memrise, it is good but I prefer Tinycards for vocabulary haha and TTMIK it's amazing I have studied with their materials, I'm waiting for new lesson and also podcasts

Have you tried Viki Learn yet? It's a language learning site from Viki that helps you learn Korean from K-dramas. I like the clickable dual-subs and the quizzes.

I'd love to try this but it's only available in the US and Canada. Do you know if there's anything like Viki Learn for UK learners?

I'm not sure really. I know that FluentU is around, but it does YouTube clips instead of full dramas. I see that you're learning Japanese too? Have you tried Animelon?

Ah, I see. No, I haven't but I'll definitely look into it and I'll give FluentU a go while I'm at it. Thank you :)

It is good as well, I have a Naver account then I connect all the apps in the same login haha.

I don't have any Korean buddies so Kakao is useless >.< (Sorry for the cringey emojis man) but I appreciate the help

Also it helps if you watch a korean drama because I know I picked up a few thinks from one of them, "my little princess" I really liked a lot, I found it on YouTube and I do recommend it, but I don't know what you guys like, just my opinion https://youtu.be/wzeP-39Wr7Q

I also watch a lot of cute shows on YouTube. The speed settings are great! I slow it down to help me with my listening and distinguishing the nuances that appear a lot more in the spoken language. Thank you!
