Thanks to everyone who has been following us on Twitter!
Here at KoreanClass101.com we think that Twitter is great for communication and sharing information. We also think it makes for a powerful learning tool! So starting today, we’ll be introducing Korean vocabulary and phrases daily on Twitter that follow a set theme.
The second theme is the most frequently used action verbs in Korean.
For each mini lesson, you will get one action verb and then one or two sample sentences showing you how the verb can be used.
So don’t forget to follow us on Twitter!
Leave us some feedback and if you have any suggestions for our next vocab themes, let us know!
Good luck with your studies!
