Learn Korean by speaking from the start!
Practice speaking essential Korean expressions in first-person POV scenarios.
• "But I can just learn Korean by watching Kpop!?”
Just like if you were learning how to swim, you’d go into a pool instead of watching videos of Michael Phelps swimming. You can't learn Korean by listening to BTS or watching Crash Landing on You! Don't get us wrong, we too love listening to Kpop and watching Kdrama. But if your goal is to ACTUALLY SPEAK Korean, you have to, well – SPEAK! Teuida's first-person POV conversations will get you speaking everyday expressions in real-life scenarios.
• 3 min > 30 min
We believe that 3 minutes of actual speaking will help you more than 30 minutes watching someone else speak (long lecture videos).
Why waste your precious time learning about Korean when you can learn Korean by speaking it yourself? Our interactive lessons not only get you to speak with the tutors but gives instant feedback on your pronunciation.
• Overcome fear of speaking
Research shows that one of the greatest barriers to speaking a language is confidence. After all, what's the point of knowing all the grammar rules and verb conjugations if you can't speak when the moment comes? Teuida helps you overcome fear of speaking by simulating real-life scenarios but without all the social anxiety. (i.e. Our characters won't throw shade at you for mispronouncing!)
• What about those other apps?
Most apps out there are vocabulary-building games and will teach you a lot of new words and basic hangul. But if your goal is to actually speak Korean, then well let's face it... no amount of matching words with cute pictures will improve your speaking.
Here’s a list of things that make Teuida different:
• Essential expressions :
No more weird, awkward phrases (translated by bots) that no Korean people actually use in real life. (Let's be honest, when was the last time you had to say "I am a boy, you are a woman" in real-life?)
• Taught by Bilingual Tutors:
Our crazy selection of fully bilingual tutors not only speak Korean but understand where you’re coming from. They know exactly what to teach you because they've been in your shoes!
• AI Pronunciation Analysis:
What's the point of repeating sentences aloud if you can't tell whether you're pronouncing it right? Teuida has a convenient voice recognition system that will give instant feedback on your pronunciation.
• Fun, Interactive Stories:
We believe that learning and fun are not mutually exclusive. In fact, learning is most effective when it's fun! You'll find yourself laughing, screaming and at times even cringing with the characters.
• Real-life Scenarios:
Real-life everyday situations! Everything from ordering a drink at the cafe to talking to your KPOP bias. Okay, that last scenario isn't really an everyday situation. But hey! You never know! ;)
• Culture-specific tips:
A wise man once said that "the person who learns language without learning culture risks becoming a fluent fool". We believe understanding culture is the key to learning language. So we hand-selected each scenario to reflect the culture-specific elements of Korea.
So... what are you waiting for? Stop reading and start speaking with Teuida!
Please note you will need a TEUIDA Premium plan in order to access all content and exclusive features.
Were you bothered by having to press the mic button every time you wanted speak?
In 2023, Teuida is going on auto-pilot! You can enjoy your lessons and stories hands-free.
But if you’d rather have some time to think, you can always go in the settings and turn auto-mic off as well!
Happy New Year!

Ratings and Reviews
Good, but can use some work.
I’m not a beginner in Korean so my personal experience may be different. I enjoy this app for the style in which it teaches. I am someone who studied but is afraid to speak in person at times. I lost all my confidence when I stopped taking a class in person and my friend moved back to Korea. However I think I can regain my confidence again using this app. The stories and lessons are done as if you are actually speaking to someone and when they don’t quite understand you then just ask you to repeat it and it. I do think the vocal recognition could use some work, I find myself speaking in a more exaggerated tone at times or over enunciating which has not been my experience when speaking with someone who is Korean, at those times I feel like Peggy hill. With a bit of work on vocal recognition I think I this app changes the way people learn and practice speaking and reading korean. I appreciate that in the lessons when responding in Korean they put the phrase in English only so I have to think about the lesson I just learned and apply it, but in the stories they have the response in both Hangul and English so I can practice reading as well as understanding my response at the same time. I think the stories are well done at being both realistic as well as a bit dramatized to keep me engaged.

Thanks for your feedback! The team will definitely keep your suggestions as we continue to improve user experience. Eryqa :)
I really like how you speak korean in the all because that forces you to remember certain phrases. the mini lessons also help me remember words. i just wish you didn’t need premium to unlock everything because some of us can’t afford. other than that, amazing app!!
i didn’t know how to reach out to you guys but here’s my idea to make it more affordable!! :) my idea is that you can provide coins as a reward. for example if you get maybe an A+ on a quiz then you get 3 coins. you can cash these coins in for another lesson (maybe each lesson can be 15 coins.) not only will it help you to get a lesson but it will motivate you to get more coins (and ultimately do better on quizzes) to get those coins. there could also be alternative ways you can get the coins such as watching maybe a part of a kpop music video or kdrama episode and you would have to use your korean to translate what they said. (given that most kpop and kdrama fans want to learn korean so they want have to use subtitles like me 😂) maybe you guys could also incorporate a “unit test” maybe and you get a bonus 10 coins? or you could complete weekly/daily objectives and get coins as awards. and to keep customers engaged you can have a starter pack for new users that includes 50 coins. i hope you can look into some of these ideas. thanks for being amazing Teudia!! Keep going!! 화이팅!

Thanks for a stellar review! We're glad to hear that you found our app helpful. The secret behind long-term memory is this . You read and you definitely forget. You listen and you maybe remember. You speak and you definitely learn! As you correctly pointed out, Teuida forces you to speak as much as possible so that you truly learn the expressions being taught and make it your own! We are working on a model that would make the app more accessible to people who can't afford it while at the same time keeping us alive to keep creating good content. If you have any ideas of how we could do that sustainably, please reach out to us!
I’ve had TEUIDA for a little over a month now, and I remember doing the first lesson and really liking it. But was a little disappointed when I found out I needed to become a premium member to have access to the other lessons, so I just stopped using the app, but never deleted it. Recently, my Korean girlfriend and I started planning the day we could finally meet. So, I had checked the app again and I believe it updated because I was able to have access to the other lessons by watching ads and being patient until the other lessons finally unlocked. But, I still felt a little sad, because the lessons are short, which I like, and I kept wanting to learn more. Although I know I was able to go over other lessons, it was still a little frustrating having to wait so long or having to watch an ad for a 2 minute lesson. Eventually, I ended up paying because I know it will benefit me in the long run. I paid for 3 months, because it was more doable for me. And in just 2 days, I was able to learn more than I have with other Korean learning apps. I really hope I can learn enough Korean to be able to speak comfortably with her. So, a big thank you to the TEUIDA team for this amazing app, I look forward to studying hard and learning many new things.
