One great tip for practicing and learning Korean on your own is using your phone AI like Siri to practice Korean! With AI assistants for modern phones, you can switch it to accept Korean (or even be bilingual and accept English and Korean) and practice some commands or fun questions and answers.

It can be a nice listening and speaking practice whenever you like or if you feel less confident in your pronunciation right now. Before you jump to language exchange partners you can test out how Siri hears you and build more confidence!

Using Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri to Practice Korean!

Bilingual is an option for Alexa and Google so you can have Korean paired with English or your native language but to use Siri to practice Korean you can only use one language so you’ll have to switch over to Korean.
