Learning Korean!

For those Learning Korean, What has been the hardest part? I am learning alongside a personal tutor so the hardest thing for me was understanding the different ways of teaching and the grammar usage.

I'm only a beginner, but so far the hardest part have been differentiating between the different sounds (eg. ㅈ and ㅉ usually sound identical to me!). The little bit of grammar I've encountered so far has been simple, so thankfully that hasn't been a problem yet.

Once I'm more intermediate I'm thinking of getting a tutor as well... but I fear I'll forever be too shy.

I'm just a beginner. I find it hard to recognise different letters. I need to hear them so I can understand what they mean.

the hardest one for me is ....trying to make sentences in korean and try to know the meaning.

There's been lots of hard parts - but what really confused me at first was the sentance setup. Ex. - The woman writes a letter. Korean people would say it in the format - "The woman a letter writes" In other words, the setup goes 1,3,2 not 1,2,3. If that makes any sense. lol

As far as writing and reading, I haven't found korean to be too hard. It's very logical with little exceptions which makes it more like adding puzzle pieces together. The hardest part for me would be know when to use all of the verb endings and the topic and subject particles.

Listening and speaking is harder for me though.
