ㅁ (type A)

ㅂ (type Q)

ㅍ (type V)

Hi Asya Bridger,

No worries. It may be difficult to distinguish the sounds at first.
But 먹 sounds like meok. And ㅂ is the consonant that sounds like b.

I am confused about the word 먹 다 (to eat). If it starts with the vowel “ㅁ” how come it sounds like it is being pronounced with a “b” sound instead of a “m” sound?

Hi Hailey,

Thank you for posting. The consonant ‘ㅂ’ is closer to the sound of the alphabet ‘b’. To learn more about the way Korean consonants and vowels are pronounced, you may want to try our ‘Ultimate Korean Pronunciation Guide’ series:

Is ㅂ more of a p sound or a b sound?

Hi Frederico,

Thanks for posting. Native Koreans put their last name first, followed by their given name. But in the case of foreigners, as they end to place their given names first then their last names, they usually state their given name first followed by the last name when introducing themselves in Korean. For example, Brad Pitt would introduce himself as ‘브래드 피트’ rather than ‘피트 브래드 (Pitt Brad)’.

Having said that, your name Frederico Perez would be written in Korean as ‘프레드리코 페레즈’.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
