For a friend...
So, I'm trying to get my friend into learning the Korean language but they won't hear anything about it. Should I keep asking them to learn it or at least try it out or should I just let it go? And if I keep trying to get them to learn, any ideas as to how I should get them interested?
If they don’t want to, they don’t want to. It’s their decision. You probably shouldn’t keep trying to get your friend to learn Korean. (Well, unless they absolutely HAVE to learn it)
Tbh, learning korean is not really beneficial for the time spent learning. The language is only spoken in 2 countries (North and South). Learning spanish/mandarin/portuguese or even japanese would be more beneficial. It is, however, lots of fun learning Korean!
I think you should only learn Korean if you're really motivated to do so. Otherwise you'll quit in a few days like most kpop-listeners do.
Well if they strongly don't want to learn it, I wouldn't force them to. Being taught a language is hard enough, even when you DO want to learn it. Maybe getting them more into the culture will spark an interest. Not to sound rude but, if you lay off them a bit and just slowly approach them with the idea they might be more prone to learning Korean. The last thing you want to do is put them under unnecessary pressure. :)
