I learned that 배 means stomach, too. Is that correct?

September 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/iianes

배 is more like your belly and 위 is the actual organ, but in english it's normal to just say stomach for both

    This app teaches you to read in Korean

    March 30, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/Npatch

    It teaches you the phonetics in Alphabet 1 ,so you shouldn't be getting random questions about meanings without a chance to learn it first. It's frustrating to get a random question about meaning and you get it wrong because you've written the phonetics instead. This part needs polish.

    April 6, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/Npatch

    Funny thing is that as I was writing the above post, I was taking another Alphabet 1 test ,aiming for the 3rd crown on it. I posted the above after such a question came up and I got it wrong because it wanted the meaning, even if 80% or more of the questions you get at this point are about writing the romanized phonetics. The actual funny part was that after I continued, I got the same question (write Wi(stomach) in english) 4 consecutive times,which incidentally were the last 4 questions on the test. I get that it will come up again since I messed up the first time, as a way for me to learn from my mistakes, but 4 times!!!! Needs polish indeed.

    April 7, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/roberto727

    mangakoibito makes an excellent suggestion. Hangul can be learned much more quickly with any of a number of Youtube videos or on the free site "How to Study Korean". https://www.howtostudykorean.com/unit0/ The site would be a grat supplement to the entire DL course For most concepts or words, Korean speakers can express them in pure Korean (no Chinese representation) or in sino-Korean with a word related to Chinese. The Korean people have had close association wih the Chinese for more than 5000 years, and in fact used only Chinese characters for their writing until the 15th century. "배" is pure Korean, whereas "위" (胃) comes from Chinese. It used to be that use of of sino-korean words was a mark of intelligence, education, or sophisticaion, but it seems there is more emphasis on promoting pure Korean now. With regard to the different meanings, 위 can also be used to mean "above", "on" "up" "over" "ahead" "superior" just to name a few. As JanLoyd and Potatonuts point out, there are also multiple meaning for English words as well. They are probably more prevalent in Korean, so it can be a bit challenging, and is why context is so important.

    https://www.duolingo.com/queenjenny09

    Just like other languages, Korean has many words that are the same and yet has different meanings as well. I think they are trying to give one of the meanings first, instead of just throwing all the meanings at you all at once, because that would be overwhelming and hard to remember. Therefore, it's good that you know one of the means, but just know that a word could also have other meanings to it as well.

    We can learn it because it makes it a bit easier to understand them without subs if they aren't available, like in a vlive or something. We can do what we want and if we want to learn korean because of music, doesn't mean we can be looked down on for it. If you don't like that that people learn korean for k-pop, then just don't comment about it and keep your hate to yourself.

    Please don't comment something that isn't helpful or kind.

    wait so do you need to put the O when writing vowels??

    December 5, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/joonique

    Only if it begins with a vowel. The way Korean syllables are structured needs to be consonant, then vowel. If the word/syllable begins with a vowel, then ㅇ is used as a silent consonant. ✌

    December 26, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/LisaS318992

    Yes and for anyone curious here's some more information... If ㅇ is used anywhere else in the syllable block besides as the beginning consonant placeholder it isn't silent anymore but rather pronounced as 'ng'

    April 16, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/wtfDayane

    I think it is more like a symbol than an O. It is neutral and used before of vowels which initiates a word on hangul because of its squared structure.

    November 10, 2017

    So it's the same than stomach in English I think, as stomach is the belly area where the stomach is + the organ.

    So is this "wi" ???

    The lesson that is supposed to teach this never writes out the pronounciation, so I have to guess from the lady's voice. I have taken the lesson about a dozen times but it never properly covers this one.

    I cannot hear the difference between wi and ui. Can someone help me out?

    October 14, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/ThomasNeed

    These are called Compound Vowels. They are made up of two individual vowels and in many cases saying the two individual vowels quickly is how you pronounce them. Wi (pronounced like the Nintendo Wii with just a little less emphasis on the W) is spelled 위. The ㅇ is silent so say ㅜ and ㅣ quickly to get the sound. Likewise 의 is like saying ㅡ and ㅣ together quickly. It's difficult for English speakers because we don't really have an equivalent sound. The closest thing I can think of to describe it is to say 위 without closing your lips on the w/u sound. Just move your tongue. My advice is to learn hangul and pronunciation from a YouTube video. These Duolingo alphabet lessons are a terrible way to learn Hangul.

      October 30, 2017

      https://www.duolingo.com/PERCE_NEIGE

      Porque debe empiezar con la versión en inglés, está en versión beta, en prueba, y luego harán la versión en español, si y solo si hay personas bilingües español/coreano quién desean contribuir al curso.

      Deberías aprender inglés, es absolutamente útil.

      On the one where you pick the English word the drop down menu says stomach/top and both stomach and top are available to choose from. I picked stomach and got it right. But this is confusing.

      Like the word 'will' in English. Will like to desire, and will to make something in future. Same word, different meanings.
