Beginners Part 1

Okay so this is the beginners section for Korean. For those who are intermediate or expert or master. You have to wait until i get into that section. Okay beginning Koreans. let's start.

History Of The Korean Language

Koreans use their own unique alphabet called Hangul.A Korean syllable is divided into three parts: Ch'osong (initial consonant), chungsong (peak vowel), and chongsong (final consonant). This is the basic framework that King Sejong and the Chiphyonjon scholars adhered to when creating the letters. Chongsong was not separately created and was a repetition of the ch'osong. Therefore, Hangul is the consonants and vowels.
