Just saying, I think the Romanization is a GREAT help to learning korean, so please do not remove it! Thanks for the effort you put into writing the romanization for all the words and phrases! :thumbsup:

Hi Colin,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and tips to learn Korean with Russ!

Russ, if you just started learning Korean, Hana Hana Hangul series under 'Browse Lessons -> Video Lessons' will be a big help for you - Learning Hangul should be the best way to improve your Korean faster, so please check them out.

@크리스 - Colin gave the right answer! You can say 맙소사. Or you can also say 세상에! which means 'Oh, world!'

Thank you,

As I discussed in my reply to your message on the other thread, before tackling lessons like this, despite being very very basic, you should just focus a few days to a week memorizing the alphabet and completing all the pronunciation classes first. Leapfrogging at this point won't work. There will come a point where you will be able to handle a list like this and the speed or grammar won't be an issue, but other lessons are supposed to handle that for you. I recommend signing up for a one month premium subscription first (or a year if you are more committed), so that you can access PDF notes. They help a lot. In the beginning, I would copy everything from the PDF notes into a notebook and then listen to the audio lessons while looking at my notes. Nowadays I do both to save time as the lessons get longer and more complex in intermediate/advanced.

For me, the words are pronounced exactly as they are spelled. Don't forget, each word has separate parts and the sounds are supposed to blend together. There are also rules involved especially for the beginning and ends of words that may determine how two words would be blended together in pronunciation. I would suggest letting go of how you think the language 'should be' and try your best to learn how 'it is'. Also, for native English speakers though, especially for those who speak Americanized English with more flat, precise tones that makes syllables more pronounced, there is the habit of wanting to pronounce every darn syllable as it relates to the phonetics chart, making speech slower and actually incorrect.

Take baby steps, buddy.



more natural: 어떻게 말하면 돼요? / 어떻게 말해야 되죠?

Oh my god = 맙소사.

They talk too fast to understand and don't wast time romanizing anything. The words are pronounced completely different than they're spelled.
