How to read and write Hangeul (Part 1)


Hello everyone! How are you doing? If you have been studying with us through Level 1, now it’s time to learn to read and write Hangeul! The reason that we didn’t start by introducing the Korean writing system from the beginning of Level 1 is because we believe that being able to understand and speak some Korean is more important than having to learn the Korean alphabet without knowing any expressions to use in real life. The video series consists of 5 videos, and in Part 1, we are introducing the letters, ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, ㅁ, ㅇ, ㅏ, ㅗ, ㅜ, and ㅣ.

Just found out about our website and haven’t listened to any lesson? Click here.

Already over this level? Don’t worry! More updates are on the way!

Thank you!

      This lesson doesn’t include attched file so you can’t download the video from this post. If you use Firefox, you can download a plugin which can download Youtube video, and then you can download it.

    Haha, I love 진석진씨 being so cool on his motorcycle. “Oh… were you looking at… 미???” :D

    The funny thing is I studied Korean informally for four years, and no one ever explained that you should put your tongue between both sets of teeth when forming the ㄷ and ㅁ sounds. Not sure if any of the books explain that or not, but that’s a strange gap! Thank you, as always. : )

      Hi Kate,
      It is correct to put your tongue between both set of teeth when you say ㄷ, but we don’t do that when we say ㅁ. It is bilabial sound.
      Thanks for your comment!
