    Thanks in advance!

    Sign up to Duolingo.
    Watch korean shows and listen to korean music - try to understand them
    Think in korean - whatever you do, try saying it in korean (quietly or aloud - up to you)
    Make notes on all words

    Immersion is usually the most efficient way to begin understanding a language well. TV shows, music, language learning apps etc. are great for comprehension, but trying using apps like iTalki for speaking practice.

    It does depend on how competent you want to be before you arrive in Korea, but remember that you will continue learning even more once you move there.

    duolingo will probably give you a good start but i know a lot of people who say the best way is being in that country - so I'm sure as soon as you move there you will pick it up really quickly!
