LangMedia provides examples of authentic language spoken in its natural cultural environment so that students of all ages can better understand the interplay between a language and its culture.

I liked this website because it is categorized by topics and each lesson has cultural notes and videos with Korean and English scripts. I think this website is a good module for my educational webpage that I am planning to create.

Topics are for the beginners, but the authenticity may add difficulty. Authentic (semi?) video clips may intrigue students to watch them several times, nonetheless. Transcripts in Korean and in English may help them to get the gist. Cultural notes attached to the video clips are plus. I may use them for a warm-up activity in the classroom.

Technical Remarks:

Sound quality is not optimal.
