    Nobody answered this thread so I'll bite the bullet.

    If you just started learning, I guess you are learning the alphabet, the pronunciations and the syntax. Hopefully you will find a good textbook in your local bookstore, but if you can't, my suggestion would be, go to Youtube. There are tons of videos explaining how to write and how to read Korean. The thing I love the most about Youtube is, if you watch a clip, there are a bunch of related videos popping up in the side.

    Any other learning materials such as movies and magazines can be found on the Internet. This involves some 'indiscretion' and 'illegal activity', you may want to PM me. Let's not provoke the moderators here.

    And what else... Oh, this site! This language forum is a great tool. Even native speakers such as I learn something new about my language once in a while. So, if you have any question, use here.

    PS. There are sticky threads introducing a number of internet resources, too. Did you check them out?

    No puedo creer que el mi paisano le aconseje el pirateo... Hay muchos materiales que puede obtener legalmente, incluso España o Francia!

    Le aconsejo el diccionario Coreano-español electrónico... Su nombre es Dicple. Es mucho más conveniente para buscar las palabras coreanas (porque ellas no son in orden alfabetico...) Hay el diccionario Coreano-frances también, si Usted viene de Francia :)

    Hay! I just started learning Korean in August of this year as well. I am in college, so I am auditing the beginner level course at school. However, I have also come across 2 websites that are really helpful. The first and best one I have found is called They offer free lessons, and also free podcast. Another one is (there is an option to buy, but I did not) with this site I recieve daily word of the day emails, but that is all I do with this site. Oh and one more is which is also free. You should stop by these sites especially talk to me in Korean (my favorite). Hope this helps! :)
