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 the last lesson, we learned these three consonants. Only three more basic characters left, and we’ll learn them all in this lesson!
All three of today’s characters are related in shape and in sound. We’ll start with the simplest one.
It’s pronounced ㅅ[s], and you can think of the shape like an upside down See-saw.
Here’s a short sentence which means “I buy.” 사요.[sa-yo] You can make this sentence more complex by putting a noun in front of it! So, 노트 is “note.” “I buy notes.” would be 노트 사요.
“우유” means “milk”. So “I buy milk.” would be 우유 사요”
We’ll learn some new nouns in this lesson that we can put into this pattern.
The next character is like ㅈ[j] with a line at the top. And it’s pronounced J or ch.
You might see this character written this way (ㅈ) depending on which typeface is used, so be ready for it!
Now you can write “lion” in Korean: 사자[sa-ja].
To write the last basic character you’ll need to learn, just add another stroke on top of the ㅈ[j/z]. This is pronounced ㅊ[ch].
Here’s “car” in Korean. 차[cha]
And here’s cheese: 치즈[chi-jeu].
We can combine 치즈 with the sentence we learned earlier, 사요. To make 치즈 사요. [chi-jeu sa-yo.] I buy cheese.
What else can you buy?
모자 사요. [mo-ja sa-yo.] I buy a hat.
차 사요. [cha sa-yo.] I buy a car.
바지 사요. [ba-ji sa-yo.] I buy pants.
치마 사요. [chi-ma sa-yo.] I buy a skirt.
You’ve learned all the basic characters, but there are more characters to learn in Hangul.
You’ve got all the raw materials, but you can still learn more about putting things together.
Don’t worry, you’ve made it this far, so just stick with me a few more lessons and you’ll know everything there is to know about Hangul!
In the next lesson, we’ll do a thorough review of the last six lessons and smooth out any problems you may be having. See you next time! 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)

ㅅ (type T)

ㅈ (type W)

ㅊ (type C)

사 (type TK)

자 (type WK)

차 (type CK)

Hi Meysam,


Thank you for posting.

If you use Mac OSX, you can add Korean language on the system setting panel. It’s simple. Go to the Setting, Language and text.

If you use Windows, please see the following link for more details:

To type Korean correctly, you should know which key represents which character. You can print out Korean keyboard layout and practice to get used to. Consonants are placed on the left side, while vowels on the right, so it will be not difficult to type.


I hope that information helped! Let us know if you were able to type in Korean. :smile:

Sincerely,

Laura

Hi Tasmia,


Thanks for posting. The top stroke can be written either vertically or horizontally, the former is considered more old school, but both works. 😄


Cheers,

Hi Anne,


Thank you for posting. Actually, the consonant ㅈ is used to covert J/Z sounds into Korean (as there are no equivalents, esp. for 'z'), and the consonant ㅊ takes on the 'ch' sound.


존=John

잭=Zack/Jack


체리=cherry


Hope this was of help. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Best,

Lyn

Hello

I want to ask something about the different of 'ch' and the 'j/z' sound in hangul.

Why the 'j' sound in hangul is really look like 'ch' sounds

Hi Eleanor,


Thanks for posting. To answer your question, both are correct--the ㅊ with the upper line written vertically is the older way of writing the consonant, and the horizontal line is more modern. (same would go for ㅎ). Other questions (similar) include writing ㄱ/ㅋ with the vertical line at a 45 degree angle rather than straight down, both are correct. You may also see ㅈ/ㅊ with the vertical line starting from the right top corner rather than in the middle, this is the older way of writing these consonants, both ways are correct.


Hope this answered your question.


Sincerely,

Lyn
