At least for me typing was something I was really weak at in Korean and took a lot of time to develop. From memorizing spelling, the correct order for typing out double vowel words such as 원, being slow, and just mistyping by not knowing the keyboard layout yet. So I have a favourite resource for Korean typing practice that I really like that I wanted to share with you all!
On to part 2 and getting into what to talk about with a Korean language exchange partner partner. Plus some key vocab which you can use to work with as a starting off point! From introductions, talking about hobbies, asking questions and more.
One great tip for practicing and learning Korean on your own is using your phone AI like Siri to practice Korean! With Ai assistants for modern phones you can switch it to accept Korean (or even be bilingual and accept English and Korean) and practice some commands or fun questions and answers.
One of the most common beginner questions is “Is Korean an easy language to learn?” while Korean definitely isn’t the easiest language to learn, it’s also not the hardest out there! I’ll get into the 2 main parts; the writing and speaking because both of them have their own characteristics.
Luckily its easier now more than ever to learn how to self study Korean and develop into near fluency even by yourself from your own home. As Korea and the languages popularity has increased more and more resources are coming up and places to connect with others along your studying journey!
Okay, I feel like hangul is something I need to make a post about. Even though I’m past the stage of learning it, it’s necessary to the language (of course) and also for following along on my blog! I know romanization is an option but Korean to English is no where near a 1 to 1 translation for pronunciation.
I remember really having an issue with sino vs native korean numbers and this is a recourse I found that can really help you out if you find yourself in the same position! You can play through 1-100 on both the sino and native korean numbers games for a nice review and test on your skills.
