Lesson Transcript

안녕하세요 여러분. Koreanclass101.com 하나하나 한글시리즈의 에이미입니다. Hi everybody! I’m Amy and welcome to Hana Hana Hangul on KoreanClass101.com - The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
In this lesson, you’ll begin to add consonants to the ten vowels you’ve already learned. By the end, you’ll be able to read and write 40 different syllables, which will unlock many more Korean words!
Ready for your first consonant? Here it is: ㄱ [G]
When making syllables, the consonant goes where the circle from the last lessons used to go. Can you guess how these are read?
기 (alternating male/female)
The shapes of the consonants aren’t random -- they were actually created to look like the shape of your tongue when you say it. Your tongue needs to be lifted up in order to pronounce this consonant correctly.
Remember how some Korean vowels look and sound similar? For example, add another stroke to ㅓ and you get ㅕ. The same thing happens with consonants.
In this case, add one more stroke to our last character and we get a very similar sound. [K]
Can you hear the difference?
The difference is subtle, but it’s there. If you’re having a hard time, don’t worry. We’ll go into the details of pronunciation in Lesson 8, so don’t miss it!
One more consonant today.
You can think of this shape as a hat on a head, which might help you remember the pronunciation.
Now it’s time for a few sample words. Can you read all of these correctly?
How about this phrase?
It’s “여기요”. It means “Here, please.” or “Excuse me.”
Use it while you’re in a Korean restaurant and you want to call the waiter over to your table. 여기요!
And this one?
It’s 가요. This means “I am going.”
How about this word?
휴가. It means “vacation.”
Finally, you can combine the last two examples to create a more complex sentence. 휴가 가요. “I am going on vacation.”
After just four lessons, you’re already writing sentences in Korean! Just think what you can learn in a few more. Be sure to watch the next lesson on KoreanClass101.com! 여러분 다음에 만나요

Let's practice writing Hangul on your computer too : )

Change your keyboard setting in Korean, and hit the English keys written next to the Korean characters. (Don't press shift key when you type)

ㄱ (type R)

ㅋ (type Z)

ㅎ (type G)

가 (type RK)

카 (type ZK)

하 (type GK)

Hi Rebecca,

Thank you for posting. Vacation in Korean is 휴가(hyuga). And 가요 is romanized as 'gayo' but the 가 will actually sound like something between the 'g' and 'k' sound in English (the romanization is there to make it easier to understand, because the consonant ㄱ is actually a sound that is between 'g' and 'k').

Is it pronounced hyuga or Khyugan? for the word "vacation."
