Sounds a little like Chinese "shan" (山) "mountain."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lang864129

their hanja form was (山, 산)

This is the same as San/さん (山) in Japanese!

They are from the same origin among 山 (san) in Chinese, さん (san) in Japanese, 산 (san) in Korean, and Sơn in Vietnamese.

In Mandarin(Chinese), 山 is called Shān, not Sān

"The 'SAN' rises above the mountain" (great mnemonic technique to help remember this word)

I get room and mountain mixed up hopefully I'll remember the differences ㅠㅠ

a room is square, like bread ("pang" and "ppang") while the sun rises above the mountain ("san")

ㄴ is the "n" letter

Thanks for confusing me

In Vietnamese, mountain is called "Sơn" which sounds kinda similar to 산 since both seems to be loaned from Chinese

I have a question. What is the difference of 는/은 and 이/가
