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!? 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! 아 A! Ahhh like awesome! You learned your first vowel! Try writing it a few times or tracing it with your fingers. 아! 아아!! 아아아 :D Here it is with other letters - can you still find the 'ㅏ' symbol? 밥, 강, 모자, 자전거, 안녕, 사랑해 (it's in there twice!)
