Hangul 101: Basic Vowels

Welcome to Hangul 101!


The alphabet is your key to studying even more Korean, and it's pretty easy to pick up with a little practice!


Today's lesson is: BASIC VOWELS


Just 8 little symbols for you to remember!


Easy enough, right!?

presentation

Let's start off with this guy ---> ㅇ


It's called an '이응/ee-eung' and is one of the most important letters because it is used so often.


It has a double pronunciation so its a little tricky:


In the beginning of a character (like 안, 아, 오, 역) it has no sound!

At the end of a character (like 빵, 강, 등) it has a 'ng' sound. (Take the word 'sing' now say it without the 'si,' just 'ng' :D



Since you can't just write a vowel by itself, I'm going to put a ㅇ in front of each vowel - but since it's at the beginning it is silent!
