Hey everyone, it’s Eric from LingQ and today I’m going to quickly show you how you can import your favourite Korean dramas into LingQ to help you improve your Korean.
As you can see here, this is an episode from Coffee Prints, a popular Korean drama. I’ve imported the audio and the transcript, and I can go through it, read it, listen to it, look up my new words, save them and review them for later.
To do this, you’ll need the LingQ extension, which you can download by going to Google and typing in LingQ extension. After that, you’re going to need to go to a website called vicki.com. Now Vicki has a ton of Korean content, as well as Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese.
Once you found an episode that you want to study. Make sure you open the episode and also you will need to make sure that the episode has learn mode enabled. Not all episodes do, but for the most part, Korean episodes have this enabled. So to find that out, hover over the episode, and as you can see, learn mode is enabled.
After you have that all set up, click the LingQ extension and hit import once your fields are properly set up. Okay. After you click import, your new lesson will look like this. And as I mentioned before, you can listen to the audio. You can even view it in sentence mode like I am right now, you can pull the direct sentence from the audio. So you can listen to the sentence that you’re reading, which is really helpful, actually. Let me show you…
That’s really great. Just to make sure that your pronunciation is okay and it helps you with your listening. Also, another great benefit of using it with LingQ is you can use the mobile app so you can have your lesson on the go. So if you’re on a long commute, or if you’re walking around doing a job, you can listen to the audio. Also, you can look at your mobile application and read the dialogue there.
Well, that’s it for now. If you have any questions, please leave them below. If you want to know more about importing into LingQ, you can check out the other video I made about importing anime into LingQ, which is a similar video to this, using a variety of other content.
That’s it for now and good luck studying. We’ll be uploading more videos soon. Thank you.
