Korean Vocabulary Lists

May 27, 2011

Some people may argue that when learning foreign languages vocabulary lists are not helpful and rather detract from learning the language. To some extent, I do agree with that statement.

In these past two months, I have utilized vocabulary lists that revolve around the TOPIK test. For those of you who do not know, the TOPIK is basically a test that tests Korean proficiency. Even though most of these words have proved to be useless so far, I have found that some of the words I learned were really beneficial. I am able to understand selected words whether I’m watching Korean television or even readying an article on Naver due to the fact that I studied these lists.

Here are some links for some lists:

I recommend you print out these lists and study them whenever you have free time. I’m currently studying these two lists right now 😉 Keep in mind, most of these words are beginner words, so I only suggest new learners of Korean study from these.
