Michael Elliot on Mastering Korean Language
Despite being one of the hardest languages in the world to learn, more and more foreigners are studying Korean as they love Korean history and culture.
It has also become quite common to find foreign nationals learning Korean as a hobby thanks to the huge popularity of Korean stars and TV dramas.
Our guest today, Michael Elliott, has lived in Korea for the last ten years and has mastered the Korean language. He runs the educational Website 'englishinkorean.com and produces an extremely popular Korean language podcast.
During our conversation we talk to Michael about his motivation to learn Korean and the difficulties he has faced not only studying, but living in Korea. He also tells us about some Korean concepts and phrases that are hard to explain to learners.
