It’s time to learn Korean.
But I HATE learning languages! you say. I understand that – it takes too long, there’s too much to learn, or whatever. Here, you’re learning the words and phrases you’ll actually use. This e-book will highlight literally thousands of words and phrases you’re definitely going to use in Korea. Everything from ordering a beer to telling the doctor where it hurts is here – and logically organized to help you find things later on. This e-book is not a dictionary - it’s designed specifically for people coming to Korea or wanting to learn words you’ll actually use. No BS. No fluff. No messing around with conjugating verbs (shudder!) or trying to remember obscure words (meh). Some cultural tips along the way are here to give the language some context, of course.
Let’s get one thing straight. I am not a professional Korean teacher, nor do I have any plans to be. That means I’m not going to throw any fancy language terms like ‘fricative’ or ‘nasal consonant’ at you, so relax. We’re going to use plain language – simple enough for a ten-year-old to understand. Again, this is NOT a dictionary; it’s a collection of several hundred words and phrases that will come in handy during your time in Korea. Whether you’re a tourist, coming to Korea for business, or becoming an English teacher, there’s something to help everyone.
The good news about learning Korean is two-fold: it’s phonetic, so a given letter will sound the same 98% of the time. Second, it was intentionally designed to be easy to learn. Go back to the early 15th century and the days of King Sejong. The average Korean couldn’t read the hanja, or the Chinese symbols the the elite (and literate) people used. In his infinite wisdom, Sejong got his people working on an alphabet that could be learned in a matter of hours. I’m serious here – you can start reading Korean words after 2-3 hours of study. You may not know what it means, but you can read any Korean you see, anywhere in the world. You can’t say that about Chinese.
