Nice intro video ikay. :) So, that's what romanization is.

To be honest, I think you can learn without having to romanize anything. Might help to know how it works though if you'll be encountering a lot of romanized Korean.

There's something I'm curious about. ㄹ can be r or l in English. I'm really wondering when to use the r sound or the l sound within a word or a sentence.

There's a native Korean speaker on this site (Sanghwa) so she's probably the best person to answer this. I think it's not like the English "L" or "R" though.


I just tried saying "Hangul" now and my tongue placement for the "L" is different from if I say "fall" or "love". The English "L" is between the teeth. Whereas in "Hangul" my tongue is curled and touches what I think is called the alveolar ridge. 


As for American "R", I don't think they have that sound. I'm too lazy to pull up my Korean keyboard now but they write computer as "com-pyu-tah". I also had a student whose name was Carl and he wrote it as "ca-lul". "Service" is also "Se-bis".


The "R" in Ramyeon rolls like the Spanish/Filipino R.

Hello ikay, thank you for taking your time to share this information and citing a number of examples as well. I somehow got your point. So, that's basically how it sound in that there's no really R sound in Korean as it is with the American R. I really appreciate it.


And if you have more info you can share, I'll be checking out this thread.

I can only read really slowly. Sometimes I stop and think, "How do I pronounce this again? What letter is this again?" My vocab mainly comprises of words I usually hear from k-dramas and variety shows.

If you like Kpop, singing along while reading the lyrics in Hangul help a lot. :)


I also looked for Korean news articles online, then copy those to a notebook. Helped me memorize the characters faster. :) Also got me used to writing Korean characters.

Wow ikay, I could imagine how dedicated you are. I'll surely try that one out if I have the time. Hoping to visit Korea soon. Have you been there?

Hi Rai! Yes, I'm interested after seeing Ikay's video. But at first, I thought Korean is very complicated to learn.

Nope. :) I'm not really into travelling and mostly just travel for work. Would love to go to Japan though. :P

Hi Charlyn! I thought so too. But I've learned that they also have 27 letters, so I gave it a shot.

My husband and I want to go there to eat and eat and eat. Cost of living is insane there so it'll probably be a while before we get to go. :)
