How does one type the word if you don't have the keys on the keyboard to type the characters?
since google is your best friend, look up how to add the korean keyboard to your computer. then try to somehow figure out which letters type which symbols in korean. or just spam the keyboard in hopes of guessing correctly like i do
After you add the Korean keyboard to your computer, you can also use a keyboard cover while you're learning the symbols (and their position on the keys!): e.g., https://www.amazon.com/Kuzy-Language-Keyboard-MacBook-Silicone/dp/B00FX0KPN4
u can go to your setting and go to keyboard and switch the launage, i have samsung where i can swipe to change it though

You can download the Korean keyboard from your keyboard settings on your phone
Whoa! Learning the alphabet, and suddenly we are to translate a word? I'm not getting how this works. At least in Spanish, we were first given pictures of things with their corresponding words. I don't understand how we're supposed to learn how a word is written in Korean without having been taught the equivalent of a (English) word is said in the target language, i.e., what "child" in Korean is.
Now I see (I think)! They want us to choose the corresponding sound (the vowel sound) in the word "child"; we are not being asked to translate the word at all!
(Oh, Duolingo, you should have told us what we were supposed to do!)
Now that you figured it out, you can also tap the word you are being asked to translate to see the translation.
How do i suppose to know it? It doesn't even let me to click on a word to find out the translation
That would have been perfect! I hope they read the comments.
Your comment made me understand what to do with these questions. Thank you!
You can change that in your settings on your phone or you can download an app
I just learned "o" & "a" sounds then i get words to translate with no option to click on the words to see translation !!
you can google korean keyboard and type it into there then copy and paste into the thingy
I think the real reason everyone wants to learn korean its cuz of bts to understand what their saying in their songs that y im here learning korean
If you are on a mac, you can enable the 2-set korean keyboard to answer these questions. I have the keyboard overlay on so I can see what the keys map to, but it's sort of tough going at the moment. Hopefully I'll get used to it (and 2-set is enough to do what exists of the course)!
They only teached me 4 sounds /characters before this . How can I translate a word ?
Its relatively simple for me. I make sure to take notes of what im learning so i can go back to it.
I typed in 아 instead of a full 아이. Why did I still get it right? Duo lingo didn't say I had a typo or anything.
Its in the settings, go to keyboard and choose a'dd language'(i have android phone, so it msy be different if u don't)i f u dont have it already lol
They share one letter, but they are different words:
"This" - 이, "i"
"Child" - 아이, "ai"
So no one told me I needed to set up a Korean keyboard to begin with. : /
Okayyyyyy i just learned a lil more than 10 Korean characters: a, i, eo, u, yu, yeo, ya, etc and now i'm supposed to translate an English word to korean (o.O) that i can't even see or hover my mouse onto to see the translation...kind of hard
