I've been learning Korean these few weeks. Just for fun la. Watching Korean drama series & tv shows does have its effect on you. Korean seems like a fun language. :)
Its hard learning it by yourself though. Cos apparently, English is a SVO language, which is Subject-Verb-Object. While Korean is a SOV language, which is Subject-Object-Verb. For example, in English, it is :
-Caryi loves yellow.
But in Korean, it is:
-Caryi yellow loves.
Its pretty confusing. :/ But its fun. :)
In Korean, there are 10 vowels & 14 consonants. You can read a word by looking at the vowels & consonants. You can read a word by looking at the vowels & consonants in the word.
아이 This is read as [ai]. According to the vowels.
so, 여기 is read as [yeogi].
There are also double consonants & final consonants & so on.
Just a few phrases for fun. :)
네. or (예.)
[Ne. or (ye.)]
고맙습니다. or (감사합니다.)
미안합니다. or (죄송합니다.)
Its all right.
I'm bored. Byee!
