Hey there, your blog is helping me a lot and I was wondering if you know any reliable dictionary and where to buy it. One can't always trust Google right? Thanks
Well one of the most reliable online dictionaries is Naver. The only problem is that it can be difficult to navigate since it’s in Korean. However, it’s very useful and it also provides excellent examples.
This one isn’t a dictionary, but it is a great tool for conjugation.
As for physical dictionaries, my personal recommendation is the Collins Gem Korean Dictionary. It is reasonably priced, and offers both Korean-English, and English-Korean. For a starter dictionary, it is perfect, especially if you’re not willing to spend an extravagant amount of money on a dictionary.
Other dictionaries include:
- Collins Pocket Korean Dictionary
- Oxford Advanced Learner’s English-Korean Dictionary (However, this is only a one-way dictionary and can sometimes be quite pricey)
- Minjung’s Essence English-Korean Dictionary (This is considered one of the best English-Korean dictionaries, but it is VERY pricey)
- Minjung’s Pocket English-Korean/Korean-English Dictionary (A little less expensive than the full dictionary, but it has great reviews!)
There are many more dictionaries out there, but Minjung’s has one of the best reputations. So if you want a very reliable and decent quality dictionary, it can be quite pricey!
Hope this helped! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
