How to start learning Korean
Hello there! The name's usa-chan man, aka usa-chan. So I don't know if anyone else is having fun learning the Korean language as much as I am, but it is quite fun.
Like at the beginning I had no idea how to start so it took some time to actually like learning the language. So I'm here to tell you all how I got started and how it can be fun from start to finish.

1. GET PUMPED!

First of all, you need to get hyped. I mean you're taking a huge step in your life to learn a language. Even though Korean is not the top language to learn, it's still pretty fantastic that you're learning a new language. Plus, you get to understand your favorite Kpop songs and those Kdramas!

2. Have a reason

Don't be that sheep that just follows the crowd. Have your own reason why you're learning Korean. Just because some are learning it because they want to support their favorite artist, does not mean that's the only reason out there. Find it, and use that reason to continue forward. Remember, don't be the sheep that follows. BE THE LEAD OF THE HEARD! And you shall conquer all the sheep. MWUHAHAHAHA!

3. Understanding

Understand that learning another language can be tough. So start off with the ABC's so you won't get confused. Learn as if you're a child learning your first words.

4. HAVE FUN!

This is the most tough thing about learning a language in general, not just Korean. Some people forget that they should have fun while learning the language. If you don't feel like you're having any fun, then find a way to make it fun! Don't wait until you feel like quitting, do it from the very beginning.
All in all, HAVE FUN AND DON'T BE A FOLLOWER THE HEARD!

You can do this!!! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

Yours truly, usa-chan man

Sorry, fat fingers...I use koreanclass101.com. I also use sites like "talk to me in korean", use google translate(not a great reference though), some apps I downloaded from google play store, and books I got from the library. Do a google search for korean language sites, and see what you come up with. There are loads of informative sites available on the net.
@Jessie0704 I don't use a specific website or book, but yes. Mostly I used koreanclass101.com or talk to me in Korean. They're both free. But I prefer talk to me in Korean just because I know that Koreans are actually the ones teaching you Korean, plus they have pretty cool YouTube videos ^^ (not sure about koreanclass) However, koreanclass is a little more set up for those who wants straight forward learning, which I sometimes prefer but not really... I definitely have used good translate, BUT never use it for phrases because they will literally try to translate it word-for-word and when you say it... Well, you sound like a robot or it just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. If you want any more tips, just keep following because I'll try to updated on Korean culture and the language too ^^
@LisetteCarballo No it doesn't. You can go to google and type the websites that I mentioned on my previous comment if that is what you imply ^^
