ㅎ is just special. In most cases it never completely disappears:
- At the beginning of syllables, it is always preserved, either fully pronounced, weakened (murmured h), or attached as aspiration to a preceding consonant.
- At the end of syllables, it is either reduced to ㄷ (if no syllable follows), attached as aspiration to the following consonant, or silent.
- Firstly, “한극에” is not a word. You must have meant 한국에 which means in (에) Korea (한국).
- Korean (the language) is 한국어 from 한국 (Korea) and 어 (language).
- 를 is what’s called an object marker. Whereas English and Spanish communicate the relationship between words through word ordering within a statement, Korean communicates it through markers. 를 does not mean anything per se, but it tells you the context of the marked word. 나는 너를 사랑해요 is “I love you,” but 나를 너는 사랑해요 is “You love me.”
I believe the closest you'd get to "in Korean" is 한국어로, but I don't know how that would fit in with this sentence.
한국어를 means "Korean language" + object marker 를.
