Lesson Transcript

Seol: 안녕하세요. 윤설입니다.
Keith: Keith here. Welcome everybody to KoreanClass101.com’s how to read and write Korean video series. This video is our third in our series. And, Seol, can you give us a little recap of what we did in our first two videos?
Seol: We ran over the consonants and vowels in our first video. In our second video, we went over the simplest way to make a word in Korean with one consonant and one syllable.
Keith: Yep and continuing our series, this video our third should bring you one step closer to learning how to read and write Korean. In our last video, we went over words that had one consonant and one vowel and we learned how to make the simplest words. Today we are going to add one more consonant. All right, let’s get started. To get started, we are going to go over a few Koreanized English words. First we have the consonant.
Seol: ㄴ
Keith: And now the vowel
Seol: ㅠ
Keith: This syllabic block makes the sound
Seol: 뉴.
Keith: Now we are going into one consonant, one vowel and one more consonant. First we have
Seol: ㅇ and this doesn’t have any sound value.
Keith: Yeah so the vowel that comes next will be the first sound of this syllabic block.
Seol: ㅛ
Keith: And lastly we have
Seol: ㄱ
Keith: In the last position. So the sound we now get is
Seol: 욕.
Keith: And, Seol, what are these two together?
Seol: 뉴욕.
Keith: And if you can guess what this is, you will get an Apple.
Seol: Yeah. New York.
Keith: Okay sorry. Okay so next we have
Seol: ㅋ
Keith: Followed by
Seol: ㅓ
Keith: And lastly
Seol: ㄹ, 컬.
Keith: Our next syllable, we have
Seol: ㄹ
Keith: Again and now the vowel
Seol: ㅓ
Keith: And what’s that together
Seol: 컬러.
Keith: And what does this mean?
Seol: Color.
Keith: Color yeah. All right and now our last Koreanized English word. Here we have
Seol: ㅂ
Keith: Followed by
Seol: ㅗ
Keith: And now
Seol: ㄱ
Keith: So this is
Seol: 복
Keith: Our next syllabic block starts with
Seol: ㅅ
Keith: And now
Seol: ㅣ
Keith: This is followed by
Seol: ㅇ
Keith: All right. Let’s pause here for a bit. When we had ㅇ in 뉴욕 it had no sound value.
Seol: That’s because it was in the first position.
Keith: Right and now that it’s in the last position, it sounds like the English ng. So what’s the sound that we have
Seol: 싱.
Keith: Right. You hear that ng? 싱. So what are these two together?
Seol: 복싱.
Keith: And this means boxing. All right, now for the Korean words, first we have
Seol: ㅇ
Keith: No sound value. It’s in the first position. The vowel is
Seol: ㅏ
Keith: And now we have
Seol: ㄴ
Keith: And this is
Seol: 안.
Keith: All right, our next syllabic block starts with
Seol: ㄴ
Keith: And the vowel is
Seol: ㅕ
Keith: And now for
Seol: ㅇ
Keith: Which has a ng like sound when it’s in the last position. So what is this?
Seol: 녕.
Keith: And the word is
Seol: 안녕.
Keith: Right and this is a great word to know. It means hey or see ya. It’s a really casual way to say hi or bye. All right next we have
Seol: ㅇ
Keith: No sound again and
Seol: ㅓ
Keith: And now we have
Seol: ㅁ
Keith: And the sound is
Seol: 엄.
Keith: Okay. Our next syllabic block.
Seol: ㅁ
Keith: And now
Seol: ㅏ
Keith: And this is
Seol: 마.
Keith: And what is this together?
Seol: 엄마.
Keith: Seol, what do you call your mom?
Seol: 엄마.
Keith: Really?
Seol: Yeah.
Keith: Well I shortened it. I just say 마.
Seol: Really?
Keith: Yeah. I say hey mom, hungry. All right, let’s move on. Our last word starts with
Seol: ㅎ.
Keith: And now
Seol: ㅏ
Keith: And our last consonant.
Seol: ㄴ
Keith: And this is
Seol: 한.
Keith: Our next syllabic block starts with
Seol: ㄱ
Keith: And now we have
Seol: ㅡ
Keith: And now it ends with
Seol: ㄹ
Keith: And what is this
Seol: 글.
Keith: And if you put these two together, it’s
Seol: 한글.
Keith: And this is exactly what you guys are reading. This is written Korean. Our last segment is a review. Seol, can you explain what the viewers will have to do?
Seol: First we will give them the words and then they will have three seconds to read the word.
Keith: Great. So here we go.
Seol: 뉴욕. 컬러. 복싱. 안녕. 엄마. 한글.
Keith: All right, that’s going to do it. Thanks for watching our third video on how to read and write Korean. Be sure to stop by KoreanClass101.com and leave us a post. Seol, let’s say bye using one of the vocabulary words we used today.
Seol: 안녕.
Keith: 안녕.

Thanks for posting.


Usually, when one learns the various Hangul syllables, you will also learn the romanization of each syllable. Having said that, you will know that 엄 is romanized as eon and 마 as ma, and you put it together as eom-ma/eomma. Romanization can sometimes get confusing for some people, however, and some opt to learn Korean without relying on romanization due to such confusion. Having said that, to avoid confusion, maybe you may want to write the romanization initially with a dash in between each syllable--you can omit them once you are comfortable enough.


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


Best,

hello, i have a question to ask.

so, this might seem like an obvious answer to this question, but i'm still trying to learn hangul and i want to make sure that i don't get it wrong.

like how you guys showed eomma in one of your videos, how do you know that 엄 will mean eom? and that 마 will mean ma?

sorry if this didn't make sense.
