  • How did non-Korean K-pop idols like Lisa from BlackPink,

  • Momo from Twice or Minnie from Idle learn Korean so fast?

  • Do they have secret techniques for learning new languages quickly,

  • while other people seem to need much more time to study Korean

  • and still not see results that quickly?

  • Today, let's discuss how foreign K-pop idols achieve Korean fluency

  • in a relatively short period of time and

  • what WE can learn from their experiences to make progress in OUR Korean learning.

  • First off, the first reason that they improve so quickly is their significant amount of output.

  • When it comes to language learning, both input and output are crucial,

  • input meaning listening and reading and output meaning speaking and writing.

  • But, here, I'm focusing more on output because normally,

  • self-study learners tend to lean towards input-based learning because,

  • you know, it's easier to hit grammar books and study by yourself

  • compared to finding someone to converse with in Korean.

  • It is especially the case if you don't live in the country where your target language is used.

  • If you have been following us,

  • you might know that Talk To Me In Korean has taught Korean on YouTube for 13 years now.

  • According to our stats, only 7% of views are from Korea,

  • meaning that 93% of our subscribers are learning Korean outside Korea and thus,

  • probably don't have enough chances to use Korean as much as they need.

  • And that might include you.

  • But what about idols?

  • You will already know most of the foreign members of K-pop groups

  • start to take Korean classes since they were trainees.

  • Lisa from BlackPink once mentioned in an interview that

  • her Korean teacher had her to speak only in Korean during the whole class.

  • And they spend a lot of time with their band members,

  • which gives them enough chances to speak in Korean in a comfortable environment.

  • Now, numerous studies have shown that

  • learners can best practice their speaking skills when their anxiety and stress levels are low.

  • In other words, high levels of anxiety and stress have a negative impact on language acquisition.

  • That is, you can better practice your Korean

  • when you talk with your close friends in a chill atmosphere

  • rather than when you're being evaluated for every single mistake.

  • In that perspective, they must have benefited a lot from always

  • having Korean members around them to talk to in Korean!

  • For most of our learners who don't have fellow band members or a giant agency to train them,

  • or Korean friends to talk to on a daily basis,

  • I'll introduce 2 easy methods that you can practice speaking Korean on your own.

  • Number one is to watch a YouTube video and try summarizing it in your own words.

  • For instance, in this video,

  • I talked about 4 reasons why it seems too hard to make friends in Korea as a foreigner.

  • You can go watch it and summarize the four points verbally in Korean!

  • Actually the content you're going to watch doesn't have to be in Korean,

  • which means you can listen to a podcast in your native language and summarize it in Korean.

  • However, if you could, I think it's always better to consume content in Korean,

  • because that way you can pick up some native-like Korean expressions

  • from that video and use them when you summarize it.

  • If this method is too difficult for you for now,

  • an easy way is to think of something fun that recently happened to you

  • and imagine that you're explaining it to your friend in Korean.

  • The second method is reading out loud.

  • Reading out loud is '낭독' in Korean.

  • Reading aloud is a very good way to improve your reading skills and vocabulary

  • but it also greatly helps your speaking.

  • You might think that it wouldn't be as effective because you are reading what someone else wrote,

  • instead of you forming your own sentences.

  • But muscle memory plays a role in speaking a language, too.

  • In order to naturally and fluidly spit out Korean sentences that you formed in your head,

  • you need to have said them multiple times so it just rolls off your tongue.

  • And reading aloud can definitely help you with that.

  • So definitely try it yourself!

  • And the second reason is K-pop idols' strong motive to learn Korean.

  • There are 2 types of motivation when it comes to language learning.

  • One is internal motivation and the other is instrumental motivation.

  • Now, when we asked our learners why they learn Korean,

  • 70% of them said they're learning Korean to understand K-pop or K-drama without subtitles.

  • This is called "internal motivation" which is the kind of motivation to accomplish your goal

  • that comes from within you.

  • If you're learning a new language because you like how it sounds

  • or you want to communicate with native speakers,

  • these are all internal motivations.

  • And having internal motivation greatly helps your language learning so keep it up!

  • How about idols?

  • First of all, they will have the same motive as you

  • because they must have made up their mind to study Korean

  • in the first place because they were into Korean songs and music.

  • But they also HAVE TO be at least somewhat fluent in Korean,

  • to fully express their lyrics, and build bonds with their Korean fans.

  • And their Korean should be even more fluent if they want to be in dramas or reality shows!

  • These kinds of motives are called "instrumental motivation"

  • which means a practical or pragmatic reason for language learning.

  • So, foreign idols have strong and various motivations to achieve Korean fluency no matter what.

  • What lessons can we apply to OUR Korean learning from their experiences?

  • It can be a good strategy for you to make more pragmatic reasons for achieving Korean fluency,

  • other than being able to communicate with Koreans or understanding Korean content without subtitles!

  • To talk about my experience as an example,

  • I'm also a long time language learner myself.

  • When I was job hunting like 6 years ago,

  • I was intentionally looking for a job that required a high proficiency in English.

  • Back then, I didn't know the concepts of different types of motivations,

  • but I had a hunch that it's going to be really difficult to always set aside time for my English

  • unless I HAVE TO do so because of my job.

  • That was one of my reasons why I wanted to work at Talk To Me In Korean.

  • Likewise, try making more powerful reasons to keep you motivated to improve your Korean!

  • Lastly, the third factor for non-Korean idols' fluent Korean is

  • systematic and consistent learning opportunities.

  • 1:1 tutoring, group lessons, books, conversation classes

  • music labels actively support their artists' Korean learning.

  • And like anything else in the world,

  • having a systematic curriculum to follow will be a great help to make significant progress.

  • And this part is where you could use the help of experts or Korean learning services because you know,

  • it's way more convenient to use an established curriculum that

  • professional Korean teachers have made rather than

  • to create an entirely new curriculum by yourself, right?

  • And we'd be very happy if you could consider using our service, Talk To Me In Korean!

  • We have the full Korean curriculum of Levels 1 to 10 that is proven to be effective by 1.5M users.

  • And we also have dozens of books and courses that cater to your Korean learning purposes,

  • so definitely check them out at TalkToMeInKorean.com.

  • So, today, we talked about how foreign idol members have become fluent in Korean quickly

  • and how we can achieve fluency while we don't have band members to talk to in Korean all the time

  • or music labels to constantly provide Korean classes!

  • But before I wrap up, there's one thing that I'd like to mention.

  • In fact, when you talk about how fast someone has learned a language,

  • there are many factors, important linguistics factors that are often overlooked.

  • For example

  • one, how close their mother tongue is to Korean

  • two, whether an idol is already an experienced language learner,

  • in other words, if they already know how to acquire foreign languages by experience

  • three: if they were exposed to Korean during their childhood and so forth

  • Comparing your Korean learning progress to a certain idol ignoring all these factors

  • is just not fair for you.?

  • And I figured most of the foreign idols have significantly improved their Korean

  • AFTER they debuted and they've gotten better and better as time went by,

  • just like any of us!

  • Additionally, many idols publicly stated that they have been struggling with Korean a lot.

  • So, I believe learning a new language is as difficult for them as it is for us.

  • I hope none of you who are watching this video

  • feel bad about yourself because you think your Korean is not improving fast enough.

  • It's natural to take time to learn a language

  • and the key is to not give up and consistently expose yourself to the language and practice.

  • And we, at Talk To Me In Korean,

  • are here to help you learn Korean in the most fun and effective ways possible.

  • So, 파이팅!! ❤️‍?

  • I hope you enjoyed this video.

  • And if you did, don't forget to subscribe and share this video

  • with your Korean learner friends who are also K-pop fans!
