Here we see a simple guide to learning Korean.
As someone who loves learning languages, this is super interesting. Will save this for future use (and probably actually use it).
@A pet named Steve, help me understand. To me, this seems more like a way to write English words with the Korean alphabet. As opposed to actually learning a language, with words, syntax, etc.
@A pet named Steve, a college buddy of mine who majored in history told me that Koreans once used the traditional Chinese language. The language was so difficult to grasp (even to this day, so now it's simplified) that the emperor or "the guy" was inspired to create a simple language. Based on what I saw on discord I think you will be capable of learning this language.
@J Boogie, it helps to pronounce the letters/syllables, I'd say. I'm currently trying to learn Japanese, and I started by learning the syllables (which is still a work in progress).
@A pet named Steve, kinichiwa
@J Boogie, kon'nichi wa, hajimemashjte Steve desu!
Seriously? I can't say "my name is" in Japanese because it has 'sh i t' in it??
@A pet named Steve, *tries to type "my name is" in Japanese
Stuckpixel: "oh no baby, what is you doing?!"
@A pet named Steve, you could say: boku no namae ha Steve da "僕の名前はSteveだ"
@A pet named Steve, how would it have shít in it? It'd be "watashi no namae wa Steve desu"
@A pet named Steve, and also boku is informal and for guys only
@The Great Wang, when you're only fluent in English and Spanish so you have no idea what's going on
@The Great Wang, ahh my mistake, I was talking about the hajimemashjte which is more of an "I am" isn't it
@A pet named Steve, hajimimashíte is a formal greeting that you say when you are meeting someone for the first time
@The Great Wang, noted! Thank you. Learning Japanese is really fun.
@J Boogie, it seems like you can write English with this because the premise is exactly the same. Both our and Korean alphabets are phonetic. Meaning that we are spelling how the word sounds. Otherwise you would need a unique letter/pictographs/hieroglyph to represent every single thing, which adds up fast.
Maybe now I can finally understand gangnam style
I have literally had a tab open on my phone with this web page on it for a year. I look at it whenever I want to read some Korean overwatch players name.
Like if you just became fluent in Korean
@J Boogie, I would like your comment, but you've got me boxed in here
@Yourself, Check. Mate.
Does anyone know what we are saying though?
I remember this being posted a loooooong time ago.
@Disgruntled Sock, yes, but it's still a good repost. Korea is often overlooked with so many of Japan's features being so quirky. It's nice for such a beautiful culture as South Korea to get more exposure :)
