Korean Anyone?

Postby dreamingxashley » Wed 03.23.2005 12:19 pm

So, just to satify my curiosity, is anyone on here interested in Korean? ^_^ Their alphabet/syllabary is really easy to learn... I was looking through pics of this Korean signer and thought about that.

I like the simplicity and elegance of Hangul. It's fun making those square syllables! hehe A great site to learn is <http://langintro.com/kintro/>. I learned Hangul in less than an hour from that site! B) I haven't gotten grammar down, though. I'm fully concentrated on the two languages I'm studying now (Castilian Spanish and Japanese).

Yu sound like me, taking on learning two languages at the same time... though Ive never actually finished learning one O.o Japanese and Korean are both usable by me since I like running around on such site. And theres also manga and anime. ^_^

I wouldn't mind studying Korean also. I have heard the grammar is very similar to Japanese and when I hear Korean, it really sounds like Japanese in tone and pronunciation - only I can't understand a word!

冬の?#92;ナタ was a very popular Korean drama last year in Japan. We watch it every Sunday on Satelite. It really sparked an interest in Korea within Japan.

Written Korean is derived from Chinese, and theres alot of "old Japanese" in modern Korean too. I was looking at the Source Kanji for the two Japanese scripts, and I thought: Hey that one looks like Korean! :)
There are alot of similarities in the languages too, like -san and -chan and the like, though I cant remember the Korean forms at the moment.

I like making the Korean blocks as well, its almost like a word puzzle.

Sounds interesting! Korean sounds fun; though, the only ever language I've tried to learn before is French (got bored, plan on getting back to it sometime). I love Japanese though, for some reason. Korean could be added to my lists of languages to learn.:)

The Japanese and the Korean grammar sounds the same... 挑戦語は大変日本語なです。せおれで、挑戦は日本語のふるさと。。。とおもいます。。。

I have Korean 1 Lessons 1-10 from Pimsleur...

From what I hear, though... Korean sounds "angry" to a Japanese. I'm not sure how Japanese sounds to a Korean, though.

私ぼ日本語はままですが、私は勉強です。。。そして、私のしはダバオです。。。

Anyway, it's quite weird to think that Koreans and Japanese are enemies for a very long time...

今、ダバオ市に住んでいるか?セブアノ語を話せるか?

The sentiment is generally waning in the younger generations...

about 80% of my friends are korean so obviously know a good amount


i actually taught myself the whole alphabet and i can read and write at a failry good level (at least thats what they tell me) as a foreigner of course!





i admit the idea of korean is very similar to Japanese but still if you dont know the chinese characters that tie into the hangul like me most of the time you will go "WTF?!?!?!?!?!"



ahhahah they always make fun of me because i know japanese as well! they constantly call me a Jokk Barri! thats the derogitory way to call a japanese person



itte SHANG NOMS!







cheers
