Korean Club

Who would like to join my Korean club? Where we help each other out, by getting immersed in Korean. P.S.- Please only post if it has something to do with Korean.



October 19, 2017



I'm in, even though I just started Korean.


ㅏ a /a/ Bach ㅓ eo /ʌ/ gut ㅣ i /i/ bee ㅜ u /u/ boo ㅗ o /o/ go ㅡ eu /ɯ/ ugh

So this is some of the alphabet.


I'm in as well. :)


ㄱ ㄴ ㄷ ㄹ ㅁ ㅂ ㅅ ㅇ ㅈ ㅊ ㅋ ㅌ ㅍ ㅎ ㅏ ㅑ ㅓ ㅕ ㅗ ㅛ ㅜ ㅠ ㅡ ㅣ


There are many many free sources on line. https://www.howtostudykorean.com/unit0/ is great. The site was started and is run by a Canadian science teacher who has lived in Korea since 2010 and is now married to a Korean. He continues to add to the course (it is a labor of love) and now has 136 lessons, starting from Unit 0 where he covers hangul very well. His wife has supplied audio for much of the course, so you are presented with grammar (his passion) vocabulary, and native pronunciation.

There are also several excellent Youtube courses for learning hangul. (I have an interest in language learning and teaching, so have checked them all out even though I know hangul well.






can someone help me to memorise the character which is the start of character sound 'ae' and so on .they are kindly difficult to remember it..


I have used several - You tube 'Professor Oh' has a song for them but she does it fast. BUT she has a pdf that you can print out to help you study.

I also LOVE TTMIK "Talk to me in Korean" they have lessons that help you and pdf's to print out. Very good resource.


I also refer to Professor Oh and TTMIK on YouTube and have found them both to be useful learning resources, too!


It is difficult for me to remember as well. I had taken previous courses of Korean at other websites and could never really understand it's grammar.


oh really..oh there is another website than the duolingo.. what is the name of the website?


Well, it's been years since I have used it. It was not as great as Duoling since you had to pay for each individual language that you wanted to learn. I also did Rosetta Stone for my Spanish.


oh okay .. thank you


am i the only one who is in love with k-pop?? im freaking OBSESSED


Kpop is love, Kpop is life

    how can I join?


    Me too! <3 그것은 사랑에 최고의 메신저 한국 팝을 좋아해요.


    GaryAhn listed the 24 basic letters nicely in 가나다 order (alphabetical order). 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels. With the 5 double consonants and 11 dipthongs (vowel combinations) there are 40 characters (letters) in the hangul alphabet.


    https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23695875 lists a long list of helpful sites. I think the best advice for getting started is to learn the alphabet on another site. Both those mentioned by Maryann are excellent. When learning the letters, and then when reading hangul, read aloud. Try to mimic the sounds and get used to how they differ from English, and try to get away from romanization as soon as possible.


    For all "obsessed" by Kpop, here is a website that spells out and translates the lyrics. https://colorcodedlyrics.com/ and then "Search the site"

    as an example: https://colorcodedlyrics.com/2017/09/bts-bangtansonyeondan-dna

    Well, can I join?


    As far as I know there aren't any requirements. So far, there hasn't been much activity since initiation, but maybe we can change that and put it to good use. Be sure to check the bubble at the top to "follow" the discussion.


    I'm in! I just started though, any pointers with learning?


    What is the code?


    meeeee!!! i love korean


    https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25293954 for help with particles. Our most recent "club member," kimmksk, is evidently a native, and has initiated some very helpful discussions. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25278355


    Why do we need a code?


    There is a pinterest post on how to read hangul and it really helped me
