I want to share the sites that help me on my self-study. And if you find this post helpful, you can leave your views below the post.
These two sites explained to me the Korean Alphabet
This site have Some basic words and phrases (Just Romanized words) I can use when conversing to Koreans. But the next site is better.
Learning to Speak Korean- this is a site that gives English phrases, then Hangul translation, then Romanization. I downloaded the MS Word file and it has 91 pages!!!
Then, this helps me understand About Romanization of Hangul. Hangul is the Korean Language.
And since I want some sort of attending-a-class articles then the site on the next link suits me. It Offers free lessons for beginners.
Some of my friends are asking me why I am doing this learning the language thing. They also ask me “with all the languages in the world, why choose Korean?” If you also experienced this, I suggest you click the following link since it explains the Benefits of learning the Korean Language. I had confidence learning the language after reading it.
I forgot around two to three sites… Tsk.tsk.tsk, one site is good beause it explains about irregularities on Korean letters.
And, since I can’t afford this time to enroll in a formal study of the Korean Language. I downloaded some free software from the net.
- Before You Know It this software enables me to hear how those Korean Words and phrases really sounds when spoken
- Declan offers around six or seven softwares which you can download for free… but of course these are just some sort of trial, but still good to try. If you have money to pay for it, then that’s better. Declan Hakgyo helps me understand the sentence construction of Korean Language.
Korean Alphabet on my Internet Browser:
I installed the Microsoft Global IME.
May 13, 2007: I just have thought by now that what really allow asian languages to appear in my browser was the installiation of asian languages. This asian languages are avaliable in the Microsoft Installiation CD. You can check with the experts on how to install this, but this is how I can remember how I did it.
- Find the Regional and languages options in the control panel
- Click languages
- Check Install east asian languages
- Insert the installiation cd, and proceed with other instrunctions
The sites I have mentioned didn’t pay me to advertise them. I just want to share what sites have helped me learned the language. Self-study is hard but it is fun to learn. It is barely three months now.
Also see my other posts:
ㄱ K/G and sometimes NG like thing if followed by an?(N)
ㅈ J sometimes CH if followed by an ㅣso 지is chi not ji
ㅈ S and SH if followed by an ㅣso 시 is shi not si
ㄹR / L it is R if in between vowels; L at then of the word
Note: ㅂ B/P, what I noticed is that if ㅂis preceded by a consonant then it is B. But experts have a better say on this. I just heard those Korean Songs
ㅣ EE , simply read as I in SIT
ㅓ EO but I simply read it as O
ㅡ EU but I simply read it as U
ㅕ YEO but I simply read it as YO
ㅇ no sound if initial letter and NG of thing if at the end of a syllable.
For syllables that starts with W, I believed those lessons from the sites will be better to tell you more about it rather than me.
