Korean boy band BTS have launched a web series via the social media app Weverse to help fans teach themselves Korean.

As reported by the BBC, the episodes are “designed to make it easy and fun for global fans who have difficulty enjoying BTS’ music and contents due to the language barrier.”

Each of the three-minute episodes will focus on simple Korean grammar and expressions, with the lesson plan developed by Professor Heo Yong of the Department of Korean Education at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies alongside researchers at the Korean Language Content Institute.

For help with learning the Korean alphabet in particular, you can also check out the virtual Hangeul Learning Centre, an interactive and educational resource created by the National Hangeul Museum in Korea.

And if you want to practise your Korean listening skills while learning more about all aspects of Korean culture, we'd recommend the Korean Culture Portal and K-Heritage TV (by the Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation), two educational online channels with interesting content and English subtitles.
