I love Antosch & Lin Languages’ websites. They are smart, robust, and versatile: the super-super-deluxe-fudge-sundae-with-everything-on-it version of a flashcard product.
Although I can’t give their Korean one a rating and full review right now—because I haven’t used it and can’t work it into my study schedule at the moment—I have cumulatively spent many hours on five other similar sites from UK-based Antosch & Lin. Antosch and Lin, by the way, are the surnames of a husband-and-wife team of language devotees whose passion has so far spawned a dozen such sites for languages ranging from Chinese to Dutch, from Swedish to Russian, from German to Japanese.
My advice is this: really click your way through all the features, because you will keep discovering new and amazing and helpful things to do. The audio feature is key, especially for an auditorily challenging language like Korean—but that is just one of many possibilities you will encounter here.
One of the reasons I am posting this pseudo-review now, prior to my own perusal, is that I had genuine trouble finding self-study Korean materials I liked. Based on my larger Antosch & Lin experiences, I am guessing this would have been a fabulous tool to be able to turn to during my hours of need, and I want to make sure Korean-language students can find it now, not a year from now, on my website.
Pay a low monthly fee and you will have access not only to all their functionality for Korean, including audio, but also to their full websites for 11 other languages!
Even to study just a single language, this is a great deal.
