[Apps to learn Korean] MBC News

I’ve recently taken to watching Korean news on the Internet. It helps in getting used to the perhaps most difficult source of listening and I just want to be updated with the newest ongoings. You can access the web version HERE but here’s a more convenient alternative.

Download the MBC news app!! What’s more comfortable than lying down on the bed and watching videos? ^^

Here’s the main content page. Notice at the bottom you can actually watch the news live if it’s the right time. Also, the FM radio streams well too. Now let’s click on a new item. You can click on the picture to get the video. The announcer script is also available as text below the video so if you can’t understand some stuff, check out the script.

But of course, the whole point is to practice listening, so try to refrain from depending on the script!!

    I was wondering what platform your screenshots were from. I have the mbc news iphone/itouch app but it doesn’t look anything like this. Whenever you can that’s cool. Enjoy your class!

      I think it’s because she’s using an iPad, so the screen is a lot bigger. 🙂

    Ah the one thing nobody gets me for christmas as of yet. LOL, Was hoping they still had an app for either mac or pc and your screenshots were from there. I figured it was probably from an IPad. Looks like cool stuff though. Thnx!
