podo app details
Hello! Korean learners.
Im Danny Park who is teaching Korean on italki.
After several years of teaching Korean to students from around the world, I learned that many of my students are using an app to learn Korean.
And so I wanted to create an app that can really improve the Korean language skills of learners with my experience of teaching Korean for a long time.
I didn't have the skills to develop an app, but I studied coding with the help of one of my students Dave, an American programmer.
And now we have the podo app.
What you can do with the podo app
: Our goal is to be able to communicate in Korean. Learning a new language is not just about memorizing words. Rather than memorizing a handful of words, try to focus on just a few words that are used in daily life.
podo lessons are designed to learn as many expressions as possible with the minimum number of words that most people use frequently.
: Students who have some basic Korean conversation skills want to read well. However, the articles on the internet or books are very difficult to understand and that makes you lose confidence.
'podo reading is written only for Korean learners. Using easy words and expressions, I wrote interesting content related to Korea. You can also practice speaking while shadowing the pronunciation recorded by a native speaker (I think it's better to listen a lot to a normal Korean voice rather than to announcer or Google Translate).
: Most students, including advanced students, are having trouble writing in Korean. You can get some corrections through language exchange sites or apps, but you can't be sure if it's the correct answer. Also, its hard to understand why you should correct things like that.
In 'podo writing, you can get feedback on your writing as well as accurate corrections by reliable Korean teachers.
: As you learn podo lessons and readings, you can collect vocabularies and expressions that you want to add to your collection storage with a single touch. You can repeat the collections with the flashcards.
I'm not a professional programmer, so sometimes programmatic problems could occur.
If you find a problem, please report it in the Report bug menu in the app.
Also, if you have any feedback to make the podo app better, please share it in the Suggestions menu in the app.
