Korean Conversation Practice

Now that you have 10 Korean conversation scripts, what’s next?

How can you get some good Korean conversation practice from this?

1) Read out loud and 2) try and speed up your reading. Why?

The faster you can read, the better you’ll get at reading and speaking in general.

Speaking fast is a sign of expertise. When native speakers notice this, they’ll understand that you’re good “enough” and don’t need to stop and think of every word.

3) Review these Korean conversations as much as possible. Nobody masters things on the first try. If you want these to be in your head, you need to review them for a few minutes per day.

4) Print this page out. That will make the reviewing easier. And if you want, you can also get the Korean conversation PDF for practice. Click on the image below to download it.
