If someone told you that you could learn Korean while watching your favorite K-Drama, you would probably think it sounds too good to be true. And yet, that’s exactly how most Teuida users say they feel when they’re using the app. Except you’re not watching the K-Drama– you’re living it.
In a market that is ever more saturated with language apps focused on vocab memorization and repetitive word-matching games, Teuida feels like a fresh breeze with its “learning as you speak” format. You almost forget you’re learning Korean as it takes you on a journey through everyday situations while making you the protagonist of these stories.
Along this journey, you naturally learn to talk about everything needed to survive in Korea, from ordering an iced-americano in a cafe to asking for directions around the Seoul metro, to even running into a celebrity in the streets.The lessons are also interactive and users get to speak with the tutors and get instant feedback on pronunciations.
Teuida’s tutors, called Teuitors, are fully bilingual Korean-Americans who can not only empathize with the learner’s struggles but also give contextual tips from personal experience that cannot be found in traditional textbooks. Teuida has become a household name amongst the Korean learning community around the world. The app, which is available for Android and iOS versions, has already reached over one million registered users. The service is offered in English, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Mandarin, and Japanese. Teuida believes it won’t be long until it replaces Duolingo as the most recognizable language learning app.
