Learn Hangul first before anything else. Hangul is easy to learn and you should be able to master it in a couple of hours. The reason to learn Hangul is that it is phonetic since it was designed for the Korean language. Don’t buy one of the books that transliterate Hangul into Roman letters. Roman letters will not provide the correct pronunciation that Hangul provides. Once you master Hangul, you will be able to read Korean and pronounce it reasonably well. Understand that Korean has politeness forms. You speak to your good friends differently than you would speak to your boss. There are two sets of verb endings.
Important things to know
The Korean language does not have accents on specific syllables like Romance and Germanic languages, and it takes practice to not accent one of the syllables. Korean does have intonation in sentences like most languages. You learn this by listening to people and practicing intonation. Korean has many words borrowed from English and Chinese. Learning Korean vocabulary is like learning any other language’s vocabulary. Practice is the key. Writing new words in Hangul will help you learn them. Watch Korean TV Shows – especially Running Man – (NOT JUST Dramas) with English subtitles and find native speakers/similar-minded language learners, to practice conversation with. What helped the most, was the entertaining and stress-free nature of this approach. Feel free to message me for show recommendations & suggestions about where you can watch them! I listened, I focused on understanding the sentence construction, toning, pronunciation, and commonly appearing vocabulary. Once I figured out that pattern in my head, I was able to intuitively conjugate regular verbs and form sentences. (This took a LOT of episodes.) As I made some progress, I focused on understanding natural conversation among the members on the show and phrases used in colloquial speech. my knowledge continued to grow at a steady pace. However, at this point, I hadn’t engaged in conversation with native speakers and had nobody to practice conversation with.
I learned to hangul off of a video on youtube. Things like that, I’m very quick to pick up on, and suddenly, the numbers that I learned all made sense. So first and foremost, learn hangul first before you do anything.
I was using Multibhashi for learning Korean. Multibhashi made my knowledge better in the Korean language. It is a website where you can find online tutors. I found a tutor, I have learned so many things and all the materials help me a lot. I should always try to read new things about the Korean language. I read textbooks, listen to interesting audio, this is very important. Make sure you get the right material for learning the Korean language. I do hard work, I do my best, and learn every day. I get knowledge of words and phrases before you start. I make sure to have fun with the language. I watch Korean dramas, listen to k-pop songs, do whatever it is that you love with no pressure on trying to understand. I give time to study at least 10 minutes and increase the time daily. Don’t start doing 1 hour a day is just too hard when I begin. I subscribe to a Korean youtube channel where I can find videos with vocabulary, everyday Korean phrases, and must-know Korean words. Channels that have a lot of videos of Korean phrases, vocabulary. I watch regularly Korean tv shows and dramas regularly. Through online dictionaries, I get help to learn easily. By hard work and daily basics, I do my best and learn Korean language. Practice makes me learn Korean language. I also want to come up with a small minimum to do each day, even if it’s only 5 minutes. That way I still get some practice in, but also leave myself open to study more.
