If you thought Hangul was hard, brace yourself, because it doesn't get easier from here.
Korean sentence structure is kind of really different from English sentence structure.
Generally in English, the subject comes first, then the verb, then the object.
Ex. I ate a hamburger.
I is the subject, ate is the verb, and hamburger is the object.
In Korean, however, the order is subject-object-verb. So instead of "I ate a hamburger" it would be "I hamburger ate".
But not all sentences follow this structure. Some sentences don't have an object, and other sentences use adjectives.
A Korean sentence that uses an adjective generally doesn't have an object. The order for these sentences is Subject-Adjective.
Ex. I beautiful.
Don't think about it too hard! All you have to really remember is that ALL Korean sentences must end in a verb or adjective.
Did you catch all of that? If you've got any questions feel free to ask, but remember I'm learning as well so I can't do anything fancy yet like translate. For that I'm sorry.
