There's a really cute song about milk that you guys should listen/learn. Would help, since it's a kid song
Cool, but we are here to learn a language, not to talk about a bias. Please dont spam here
although i am learning it for kpop too, i also just really like the language and I want to learn it.
Im doing it for bts, kpop, kdramas, and bc my other half of my family is Korean
The writing system seems easier to me but im only on lesson 5 or 6 so im still brand new. My wife n me are competing so thats helping. She is half korean so we decided to learn un memory of her late mother
I'm doing this for the same reason as your wife. I'm half Korean and I really would like to get in touch with the other half of my heritage.
maybe I don't understand yet, but how does this translate to milk? I thought it would have been "i", but I guess I was wrong, Can someone explain?
They decided to teach us a word with only two characters, a common word that is useful enough to enough people. You can hover over or click on the word for a hint.
Thank you, that makes much more sense. But now I'm worried duolingo is teaching me other incorrect pronunciations :(
I'm visiting my sister in Korea soon so I'd like to learn how to say at least a few things. But I also recently found BTS music and I think listening to their music as I go along with be a good learning tool. Like how people watch tv shows from other countries to pick up on the language.
Korea is the country, Korean is the language. I don't think it's hard. Being total beginner in this course is not easy.
Yes it is. But it is worth it when, after a long time of this, you realize you can speak it okay or decently.
random click I have always loved Asian culture, food, drama, history, so im not just doing this because of kpop or BTS (even if I love them,) but to my benefit. Im learning Japanese as well which I know more of, call me crazy but, do what you love right? ╮(╯▽╰)╭ Keep learning everyone! (˘︶˘)
my keyboard just can type in Vietnamese or English. How can I type in Korean? PLEASE help me!
What is your computer OS? We can't help you without knowing. Try to install some extensions like this one (I don't know your browser): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/international-on-screen-k/ohpiacnomiacdnhcfalghggiankgknak
Just use your default keyboard system. Nowadays smartphones supported almost every languages so you don't have to insert another one. For information security of course
Do i need to know the korean word for milk to answer this? Because i am just guessing.
Was I supposed to be learning words this whole time? I thought I was learning the differences between very simple syllables like do,rae,mi... when did I miss learning that milk was these two simple early syllables?
No, just towards the end here. Just click on the syllables to see if there is a word. Child and milk were given since they were simple two syllable words. Before we had only one syllable at a time.

this appears as "milk" in the alphabet problems when it should appear as just the romanization "uyu"
No, this is correct these two characters form the word that means milk. When we learn the alphabet, we often learn simple words with it. Maybe you would have preferred an entire sentence “A is for apple, B is for boy...”. How much harder would that have been? Just mouse over or click on the word to see the hint.
The hanja is 牛乳, which is pronounced gyuunyuu in Japanese. Personally it sounds similar enough to use as a clue :)
I am memorizing these but how can i use symbold that represent noises i a sentence
We do it in English every day. “A” is the first letter of our alphabet and a word as well that you just used in a sentence. “I” is another word that is just one symbol that represents a sound in our alphabet. So click on each symbol for hints to see if they are words.
It keeps saying "Remember to use the Korean keyboard" when I end up typing things like "uyu".
All it has is a word bank (not virtual keyboard that I can see, though I may be missing it) and I don't have a Korean keyboard.
You can access the Korean alphabet through a software available in your language settings of your phone, tablet or computer and it is easy to switch back and forth. They call the virtual keyboard on a phone in this way and on the computer it is called a keyboard layout that you access through the regular keyboard that comes with your computer.
Oh here is the one I was looking for:
I've been studying Japanese, but recently added Hangul. Not just because of BTS, (I love them dearly) but for the love of Asian culture and other K-Musics as well. ^.^ ARMY
And why not? In English we often teach a word for each letter of the alphabet. Here is a simple word made with only two characters that every Korean child probably learns rather young.
