Learning Korean

So you want to read Korean? You don’t have to understand all that you’re reading (you’d need an expansive vocab for that), but being able to read simple words like 김치, 라면, 사랑해, 안녕하세요 or your favourite star’s name in Hangeul would impress the pants off your friends! Well, OK, maybe not.

Anyway, we have been attempting to learn the language and stumbled upon these very helpful sites:

Learn Korean Language
  • 12 free lessons
  • Take all of them and reading Hangeul would not be a problem
  • You’d also be able to make simple sentences, but it would mostly be about eating, drinking or going to school
  • If you like the free lessons, you can go for the premium content = $$$
  • 선생: Russell Holloway

Sogang Korean Program

  • It has audio and notes for each lesson
  • I’ve only gone through four lessons from its Novice Korean I section where I learnt how to go: 리스 입니다. 나는 말레이시아 사람이에요. 여러분, 만나서 반가워요. ;-)
  • They have lessons from introductory level to intermediate!


  • The online dictionary is useful!
  • Learn about the history of Hangeul
  • Familiarise yourself with the alphabets

Tour2Korea: Language

  • Since it is a tourism site, it has useful phrases for tourists
  • You won’t learn much about the Korean alphabets though

Yeah, cool sites.

You can check out the Korean alphabet on this Arirang TV - Let's Speak Korean website too.
