How does Korean sound to non-speakers?
Posted 1/25/08
i think the tune sounds pleasing and not foreign at all for me.

Korean expressions make me laugh. xD
Japanese is annoying as hell.
Chinese is cute, I like it.

at first, i didn't like how korean sounded. after awhile, i got more used to it because my friend would sometimes speak to her mom in korean and also i started listening to k pop. i actually like how it sounds now and i've been teaching myself some words here and there, and it's really fun to speak. i find it easier to remember korean words more than words from other languages that i've learned.

though it gets kinda weird when koreans are either shouting or complaining to eachother because they always elongate the vowels at the end ex: a lot of the times when they say "uhmma(mom)" they go, "uhmmaaaaaa" and they like to say "oh" a lot too lol

i like the sound of japanese too. chinese sounds ok. i don't mind how the males usually speak it, but sometimes the females voices are a bit too high pitched for me.

haha......... i think its like shouting at someone always........... even though im half korean and understand the language well, i still don't get it why other korean people will raise their voice when talking to someone and ends up whacking up someone at the head or back

Korean sounds like a mouthful, but other than it's a beautiful language.

koreans---for my opinion,they speak calmly but sometimes they speak very similar to japanese.
japanese---they speak like they're angry,they pronounce THANK U as SAYNK U & they always bow lo(but they're nice,when u smile at them they will smile back)
chinese---they speak like they're fighting...

Since I can't speak any Asian languages, Korean always sounded like a more guttural version of Japanese to me.
