The Adversary - So, I'm moving to Korea in the very near future and have been looking at a ton of programs, apps, and methods to learning a language quickly and efficiently. I'll just share some of the newer tools I've come across.

Hey, our very own forum member and BJJ black belt John Frankl teaches in Korea. And he is fluent in Korean. You may want to pick his brain. Although if IIRC, he started studying Korean at 18 and he has a degree in Korean Literature but he still might have good info for you about learning the language and Korean in general.

You moving to Korea for work?

Funny you would mention him, as I just came across his name the other day while looking up BJJ/MMA in Korea.

He sounds like a good guy to get to know, thanks man. Where does he usually post here?

I planned on eventually making my way to his school, but I didn't realize he might offer some insight into learning Korean, as well.

Yeah, I'm going over to teach English (surprise, haha). If I can help it, I plan on staying for a couple of years at minimum.

Immersion. Spend six weeks to six months in a foreign country. It will change your linguistic capacity and your life. Best investment you will ever make.
