About Hanguk Babble – Links to my favorite resources

I tell people to refer to my “About” page for resources.  Some do, and are surprised to see how many links I have there.  If you haven’t looked recently. then here is what you have been missing.


Check out resources on my blog like flashcards, games, quick reference, 6000 Most Frequent Korean words list, grammar rudiments, Follow my Daily Plan, Control Journal, and weekly class routine. Read my Korean Digital Academy class notes, KDA flashcards, list of lectures and KDA vocabulary. See the 600 words tutor says I need for basic conversation. Say hi. Get to know my bookshelf, listen to sound recordings, and follow my language learning progress.

[I  added 215 Chinese Radicals to the Hanja page for reference. ]
