안녕하세요 !


You know, it's easier to get better Korean pronunciation once you can actually read what's written. Now that I can actually read the different words, it's become much more satisfactory when I get the pronunciation right sometimes. I've stopped relying on Romanization now! :smile:


감사합니다 !

This course is way too expensive for what it is.
