Describe Yourself in Korean

Can you describe yourself in Korean? It’s useful to be able to talk about yourself when you’re getting to know new people, speaking to an official person or filling out a form. Whatever the situation, the Rocket Korean team have created this free lesson to make it easier for you.

Perhaps you’re booking into a hotel, or going for an interview. You’ll probably be asked some basic personal questions in Korean like “What is your name?” “Where are you from?” or “What is your date of birth?” These are all useful things to be able to talk about for everyday conversations as well, so how about we start with some numbers in Korean…
