When I began learning Korean I just looked at the writing and and laughed because I couldn't make sense of anything. But the language is a hard thing to process. When speaking it, it's the hardest because of the sounds. When writing it's hard because the letters are are confusing if u don't memorize them.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚good luck!

One nice thing that helps me build my vocabulary is looking for patterns. Similar to how we use Greek or Latin roots in English, Korea uses Chinese roots known as Hanja. For example, in 학ꡐ, 'ν•™' tends to be a syllable used for various words relating to learning/education. 학생 (hak-saeng) is student and 학사 (hak-sa) is a Bachelor's degree.
I feel like pronunciation is the hardest part of it all! But it's worth all the effort! :)
