Finding the motivation to study can sometimes be a challenge. Especially when there are so many other things you could be doing, so in this post, I will share some of the ways I find the motivation to study Korean.

Follow Korean Study Instagram Pages
One of the ways I get motivated or stay motivated to study is by following Korean focused Instagram pages. I usually follow the pages that share their study notes, rather than pages that try to teach Korean. I think both or good, but sometimes information on the internet can be wrong and I rather not learn the wrong information.
*You could even make your own Korean study Instagram. This could help with accountability and even help you make some online friends.
Make a Motivational Korean Study Board on Pinterest
Making a Korean study board on Pinterest really motivated me to study. It made me want to make my notes nice. And just gets me excited to sit down and write new notes.
I really enjoy looking at other people’s aesthetic study notes and their study spaces.
Follow Korean study Youtubers for Motivation
Youtube is probably one of my number 1 tools for motivation. I’m on Youtube more than any other social media. And watching other Korean study Youtubers talk about their Korean language journey. And about how they study and their tips and tricks really have motivated me. I usually will do this before I study. I like to watch, Raki Wright, Natalia Garza, Motivate Korean, and It’s Veronica. There are others but the people I listed above motivated me the most. You can also just search, “My Korean Study Routine” or “Study Korean With Me” and find some people/videos you like.
*I also like to watch just vlogs of people in Korea too. I did this more when I lived in America, but sometimes I still watch them now. One girl whose videos I really enjoy is Eva.
Watch Study with me Videos on Youtube
When I study I like to watch either live videos of people studying or pre-reordered videos of someone studying. They help to motivate me to study when I feel like giving up, I just look at my computer and see the person studying hard, and I continue with my own goals. This is really just a mind trick, but it works. They often have timers on too, so they take breaks every 50 minutes and then come back. It’s super helpful.
Make your study space aesthetically pleasing.
Making my desk look as aesthetically pleasing as possible really helps me to get in the mood of studying. I will make a cup of hot chocolate if it’s night time, or iced-coffee if it’s day time. I put it in a cute mug or a mason jar and I put a snack out next to it. Maybe a protein bar, fruit, or a bar of dark chocolate. I talk about this a little more in my post, 7 Tips for Improving your Korean Study Sessions.
Also for some great speaking practice, you should sign up for Italki! Italki is a great site that gives you one-on-one language lessons/ speaking practice for as little as $5 per session. I personally use it for Korean speaking practice. And I love how I get undivided attention and the person is paid to help me become a better language speaker. And all for $5 or more!
