Have you ever been bored with Watching Tutorial Videos but still had to continue watching just for the sake of Learning?
Or do you want to know the types of videos you can watch without getting bored and boost your Korean learning at the same time?
If Yes, then it’s time to make it Fun.
Recently, I’ve added one more way in my learning method which seems to be working in good way. That is, watching Content related to Topics that interest you.
So, let’s discuss this one, and then I’ll share some of the examples & some channel recommendations.
For starting, if you are:
- A lawyer, you can watch Law Videos, or Videos related to popular cases in Korean history, etc. (which probably would be boring too, but this way you can pick up words fast as you can easily relate to these)
- As a marketer, you can watch Marketing Tutorials and various Campaigns / Tools / Strategies in Korean Market.
- As a student, you can learn your favorite thing in Korean
Ain’t this nice? Probably ain’t… 😀
But we can shuffle things a bit to your liking… you can learn your fun things through Videos that are in Korean.
e.g. Dance, Painting, Learning About Food, Marketing, etc.
(I usually shift between types of videos that I watch. This includes Videos: Tutorials, Pranks, Food, Mukbangs, Dance, Marketing, Learning Excel, Self Improvement, and much more)
With that, let’s get started with Korean YouTube Channel Recommendations.
PRO Tip: If you want to search for something in Korean. Open Naver/YouTube in the browser, put in the topic in Korean then add 잘 하는 방법 or 하는 방법 after the search term. (Similar way for Dance, its 잘 추는 방법, in some other cases like playing an instrument it can be 잘 치는 방법 ). In most cases 잘 하는 방법 or 하는 방법 after the word would work.
E.g. when I type 춤 잘 추는 방법. I get a result something as follows:
