Korean Champ – New video series for beginners

I adore the Korean Champ. I have enjoyed his website, video lectures, and podcast.  Now he is coming out with a new series aimed at the novice Korean learner.  You get to see the sights in Korea and learn vocabulary along the way.

I especially could relate to his friend the “King of Nouns” who isn’t able to form sentences. I can relate.  I’m at the “point & say noun” stage in my learning, with my verbs consisting of 이에요, 왔어요, 주세요, 있어요, 없어요, 가세요, 먹다, and 사랑해요.
