Korean Test Preparation

Korean Test Practice with Billy [Ep. 23] – Intermediate Korean (Listening Practice)

Are you preparing for any upcoming Korean tests... sometime in the future? Okay, perhaps a few months from now? Well then I have the perfect series for you to practice.

Check out this Intermediate Korean level test question in episode 23! Below the video is the example and the translation.

Here's the original transcript:

미안. 오래 기다렸지? 아니 집에서 나와서 걷기 시작하자마자 비가 막 오는 거야. 그래서 옷 갈아입고 우산 챙겨서 나오느라고 시간이 걸렸어. 거기에 비가 많이 와서 그런지 길이 너무 많이 막히더라고. 택시 타고 오다가 너무 오래 걸릴 것 같아서 지하철로 갈아탔지. 그러고 지하철에서 내렸는데 어떤 할머니가 길을 못 찾고 힘들어하시는 게 보여서 말이야. 내가 또 어떻게 그냥 지나가니. 할머니 길 알려드리고 나니까 시간이 이렇게 됐네? 아, 진짜 미안. 대신에 오늘은 내가 다 살게.

And here's the English translation:

Sorry. Did you wait a long time? I mean, as soon as I left home and started walking it was raining. So it took some time to get changed and bring my umbrella. And I guess because it was raining a lot the roads were all packed with cars. I thought it’d take too long to take a taxi so I transferred to the subway. Then I got off the subway and I saw an old lady who was lost and needed some help. So I didn’t want to just pass by her. I guess it took a long time telling her directions? Ah, I’m really sorry. In return today’s my treat.
