We’ve also included a video with voice pronunciation. Listen to it a few times, and make sure to practice saying the words out loud too; this will really help you retain the information.

  1. Durjan singjali:

    I would like to study about korean language but still couldn’t find that’s one. If there is any suggestion, plz tell me.

    • Linda:

      @Durjan singjali Hi Durjan! Thanks for your comment. Where exactly would you like to start on your language learning journey? My recommendation would be to start with learning the Korean alphabet. This way, you can pronounce what you’re reading, even if you don’t understand the vocabulary. That will come later! 🙂
