Let’s Learn Korean! Vocab Gameplay Preview

*Let’s Learn Korean! Vocabulary by Dr. Cyril Splutterworth – April 26, 2020
*MSRP: $5.99 (Steam) – https://store.steampowered.com/app/1286360/Lets_Learn_Korean_Vocabulary/

I saw this game show up on my feed, my curiosity was piqued because I am a Korean American. I am always interested in how others view the Korean language and culture. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to brush up my Korean and learn more words as well, just in case I run into Park Bo Young.

To my disappointment, Let’s Learn Korean fell short of the mark. It won’t really help anyone learn enough vocabulary to speak to another person in Korean, let alone speak and comprehend enough words to navigate traveling in Korea.

The game uses flash cards. A lot of the words are English transliterated into Korean. Not the most useful to learn.

It has a strange collection of words not commonly used in Korean speech, and a lot of English words transliterated into Korean, which doesn’t help anyone.

It also doesn’t feature enough words to be of use to a beginner level speaker.

Doing well will earn you coins which you can spend to listen to traditional music and play games. The games are very basic.

To say some positive things about this game, it will probably help a young child not familiar with Korean to get acquainted and will serve as a mediocre place to start getting familiar the language.

To be honest, you’ll probably be better off listening to Kpop (if your ears can tolerate it) and watching Kdramas.

Babay by Zion T. There’s more to Korean music than Kpop!

P.S. There is a lot better Korean music to listen to, for example Babay by Zion T. It might not be to your liking but there are way more artists and sounds coming out of Korea than the generic, mass produced Kpop.
