Hi! Welcome to Unit 0 of HowToStudyKorean.com. The three lessons in Unit 0 will give you everything you need to be able to read Korean. Having taught all of this to myself, I understand the challenges that an English speaker can have when learning how to read. So, as in every lesson, I will explain everything in a way in which allowed me to understand it when I was teaching it to myself.
Study hard, and make sure you understand everything in these lessons before you move on. In Unit 1 you will meet my older brother… he’s a mean boy… and he will begin to teach you Korean grammar and vocabulary.
|Lesson 1: This will be your very first step in learning how to speak Korean. In this lesson, we will show you the most basic and common letters in the Korean alphabet. We will teach you not only how to read these letters bu also how to arrange them to make syllables on your own. Make sure you study hard because this lesson will be the first building block for everything you learn in the future!|
|Lesson 2: In this lesson, you will go deeper into learning how to read Hangul by learning more letters. Some of these letters are complicated because they are so similar in appearance and sound to letters that you already learned. Nevertheless, you need to know them!|
|Lesson 3: In this lesson, you will learn the remaining letters you will need in order to be able to read Korean. Luckily, these letters are simply combinations of two vowels in which you already learned. Once you master these, you can begin studying Korean words, sentences and grammar!|
|Pronunciation Tips: Korean pronunciation is vastly different from English, and it takes a lot of practice to be able to be able to pronounce words correctly. Use this lesson to guide you through the process of properly pronouncing syllables and words.|
