WORD Wednesday--Free Korean lessons in Byki Express

Go here. Now. Download this free learning program. You won't regret it!

It's a free program by Byki Express (www.byki.com) and it's the most comprehensive and easiest program I've found so far to learn Korean. 

(By the way, there's plenty of other languages at the site so if Korean isn't your cup of tea, there's something there for you too.)

The program downloads easily and the interface is super smart. The flashcard-styled approach makes using the program a breeze and it's very interactive. The pronunciation is clear (critical to understanding what the hell I'm trying to make my mouth say) and the transliterations make it easy to follow along. You always know just how far into the lesson you are and how much you have completed which is a nice feature too.

Words are organized into lists and there are plenty of them to choose from. You can easily toggle back and forth between lists, and again, can easily monitor how much of each less you have completed.

Lists can be imported, exported, and there are a lot of options for customization on the flashcards.

I especially loved the testing part of the program, where you can guess what is said/on the flash card and the info is compiled so you can see what words you have memorized.

Oh yeah, and they also send you handy tips via email too.

Overall, I can't say enough about this! Now if only I was disciplined enough to make myself do the work instead of just blogging about it....
