Korean Lesson 43, Talking About Animals Plus, Part 1 (동물에대하여 하는 것, 그리고 도 많은, 1부)

Often, when I teach a foreign language, I have a set of cards I have been using for years that I use to talk with the students. Lately, in my online Korean classes, we have been using the cards, and my students like them because the are learning useful words and phrases that they can use everyday. I am not sure that I have taught all these things in my blog yet, so I decided to try to duplicate the cards and the questions for my blogs. Most of the cards are animal cards, but there are some other cards in the mix with pictures of other things. I have learned that when you learn certain vocabulary associated with certain pictures, it is like giving your memory a hook, and it makes the words easier to remember. You can practice drilling yourself with these like I drill my students.
