Great for beginners

This one has a great vocabulary list and a story summary after each story. Also, a little quiz to help you know what you have understood.

The Korean is Upstaged by the Brit

The audio in this material strongly favors the Brit in amplitude, clarity, and diction.

This material was originally recorded for native Koreans wanting to learn English.

I have been listening this daily. The stories start from easy and get harder and harder. It uses vocabulary that you’ve learned plus new words as you go along.

One of the favourite guide

It's a nice audio book that you can listen and understand easily, but you need to have basic understanding of the language and Hangeul. It's good for listening and learning practice.
