Hi Mery,

Thank you for posting. There are grammatical rules for every language, and sounds that do not match the spelling in various countries as well. But you study them and remember them because of the grammatical rules. The same goes for the rules of batchim.
So although it may be confusing, please try to remember the batchim rules as it is very important in your Korean studies. :smile:
Hope this was of help. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best,

What I really don’t understand is: Why are certain words written with letters in positions (for example as batchim) where it changes it sound, i mean why don’t you use the letters you actually here in the end? :sweat_smile:

Hi Holly,

Thank you for posting. The name ‘Holly’ can be written in many ways(할리, 헐리, 홀리), but according to the National Institute of Korean Language, it is written as ‘홀리’.

Hope this answered your question. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Hi Iveth,

Thank you for the positive feedback! Your name ‘Iveth’ would be written in Korean as ‘이베스’.
And to remember the batchim rules, maybe you could make a little list of batchim rules in your ‘note’ function on your phone or in a little notebook and take a look at them whenever you can. Practicing reading words out loud would also help.

Thank you and please let us know if you have any other questions.
Best,

Now I am and thanks to you guys, you make it easy to understand. So thank you. I was wondering, How would you say my name in Korean (Iveth)? (E-veth).Also, do you have any tips and tricks to remembering the bat-chim rules? Thank you for teaching me hangul and I will study hard with your help :smile:

Hi Nyka,

Thanks for posting. Could you let us know how your name is pronounced so that we can provide you with the most accurate answer? If your name is pronounced as ‘Nika’, it would be written in Korean as ‘니카’. If it is pronounced differently, could you let us know?

Sincerely,
Lyn

Hi Sophie,

Thank you for your comment! When foreign words/borrowed words first entered the Korean language, everyone was writing/pronouncing them differently, so the language authorities(right now it is the ‘National Institute of Korean Language’) got together and made a borrowed/foreign word rule in which foreign words were to be written in the way the rule suggested. So in accordance to those rules, your name ‘Sophie’ is written as ‘소피’ in Korean.
And if you have any questions regarding learning Korean–don’t hesitate to ask! We’re here to help you out as much as we can. :smile:

Sincerely,
Lyn
