Hello everyone! Welcome to week 1 day 2 of FlyIntoBooks.com‘s Korean core 6k. This is the second installment of the Korean vocabulary series of our Korean Language Walkthrough. This vocabulary series will help you learn the most frequent words in the Korean language.

If you haven’t learnt week 1 day 1’s words yet, you can see the previous list here: Korean Core 6k – Week 1 Day 1.

Remember in our Korean core 6k list that we don’t focus on simple L1->L2 word meanings. Instead we use L2 sentences that include the L2 target word, as well as the L1 translation of the L2 sentence.

This helps you to learn the most frequent Korean words in context, and also helps you start reading Korean sentences from the get-go.

This vocabulary series is for Korean learners who are Upper Beginner to Lower Intermediate. (NOTE: you need to be able to read Hangeul. If you don’t know how to read Hangeul yet then go here to go through our FREE Hangeul Master course -> to be completed).

If you have finished studying Week 1 Day 2 of our Korean core 6k, then go to the Korean 6k Week 1 Day 2 practice section (To be completed) to check your understanding and usage of the words.

Here is the codes used in the last column of the table:
(>>): The usual structure of the sentence where the word is used.
(X): The antonym of the word.
(=): The synonym of the word.
(R): The respectful form of the word.
(S): The short form of the word

So without further delay, here is the word list for today:
