What are the best (FREE) language learning services available on the Internet? Couple of my relatives speak Korean and I was wondering my options so I could actually talk to them. And yes, I'm trying Duolingo as I speak. Doesn't look great.

A torrent client and a keyboard. I've found most web-based resources to be rather lackluster for anything that isn't English or Japanese, and YouTube videos are a rabbit hole. Russian resources, for example, were very lacking. I haven't heard good stuff about Duolingo and it just looks and sounds like a procrastinator's dream. With most languages, you should in general learn the script/alphabet (if applicable), get a grammar sheet or two, and learn some vocabulary and get ready to try and contextualize stuff. Try buying a (reputable) college book on Korean or pirating it like everyone is supposed to. I don't know much about Korean, so take this with a grain of salt, but this seems to be the most reputable beginner level resource:
http://www.amazon.com/Integrated-Korean-Beginning-Textbooks-Language/dp/0824834402/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260972037&sr=8-1

I already know the alphabet; Korean is known for the easy alphabet and hard as hell grammar. Anyways, thank you! The book you found looks like a good find, positive reviews and cheap compared to other highly rated books I found. Good looking suggested books too. I'm probably going to pool resources for a college book, pirating's never been my thing even though I have no fucking money.

Good chance you already heard of several or all of these, but…

Lingodeer is a bit better app than Duolingo. More structure, teaches words in context and grammar right away.
If you already know a lot of words and grammar u can use Naver dictionary to learn more. Naver has a whole subsection of their website dedicated to foreign speakers and learners.
HiNative is made by the people who made Lang-8, it's an app where you can ask natives questions but again, assumes you know at least some basic shit. Speaking of Lang-8, they stopped new signups but if you just happen to have one from a while ago it could be useful.
Youtube and web Talk To Me in Korean. I haven't used it because I'm lazy and stubborn but they have free courses, native speakers, and free Youtube videos on all sorts of subjects. I heard people say they got very far with them but IDK about quality, sorry. Just throwing things at the wall here.


Or make a new (separate) Twitter account and post in Korean and ask questions while posting about daily life or your interests. I'm only in the super beginning phases of Korean, so I'm not much help beyond this, but I really see this as a good step since it kinda forces you to practice.

Make some Korean friends somehow. Whatever you do, at least try to be genuine with them in terms of friendship. If you just want a language partner I'm sure you could find one by asking around.

I have heard that written and spoken Korean can be very different, so keep that in mind if you didn't know that already.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Learn from them. Mistakes will be funny and you'll laugh at them later on down the line. Oh no, that's generic language learning advice…

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. Every year I like to stay up late watching something horror related while occasionally glancing into the empty street outside my window. Last year I watched the first four episodes of Higurashi and I loved it. I already finished the series and I don't feel like repeating it. I'm looking for suggestions of what I can watch this year(preferably anime). I also already watched the corpse party ovas. Thank god I didn't waste a Halloween on that shit.

No one actually likes to read, prove me wrong.

Or at least the vast majority of people won't read anything unless it's some popular thing like Harry Potter.

I don't blame them either, reading is boring and outdated when you can easily listen to more pratical forms of media to absorb information or have fun. Especially if we are talking about actual physical books, which literally have no reason to exist other than being an economical alternative to owning a computer.

The people I met who claim they love to read are usually annoying morons who just want to pose as smart or interesting people.

Prove me wrong. If you reply with "I like to read" your opinion is instantly invalid.

I like the freedom of imagination that books give compared to other mediums. It's not possible to capture the horror of Lovecraft ancient gods in a painting, a movie, or animation. It's something born from your very own fears as you picture that. The same applies to any other thing, which need not necessarily be related to horror.

Humans love stories. Books are just one of the most efficient mediums to build a story with great depth. It boils down to the efficiency of the author as a writer and how engaged you feel when reading their work. It's also a great way to practice language, or even old variations of your language. Being able to read things written over a thousand years ago in a country far away from yours gives a lot of insight into how things were back then. This is something that no other medium will ever give you fully, because there are many things lost in translation (in mediums and also to your modern language).

Yes, perhaps it's a minority, but there's definitely degenerates out there who enjoy it.
