HANGUL for KNOWLEDGE

***under construction***

(but feel free to stalk)

Again, I am not  expert when it comes to Hangul or should I say knowledgeable about Korean language but I know some some that I can actually use for conversing with Koreans out there or wanna-be koreans.  Thanks to my every wonderful cousin (who’s an English tutor of Koreans in our place) who taught me how and later continue on learning and loving Hangul all by myself.^^

I just want to share what I’ve learned too for the past year(s).

Here are some some but in romanized version to help you ease your way through it.

Let’s start with basic words or phrases cause I know that it’s easier this way (some are in an informal way).  These are mostly random.  So please bear with me.  ^^

    Hello!
    Very nice post!
    A Korean friend told me how to say “Good luck” to someone before one has a performance on a stage. It sounds somewhat like “jalhae”. Now I want to wish him that in writing with Korean alphabet. Could you please spell that for me?
    Thank you very much!

    So helpful. Komawoyo
    But am a little confused on some matters, cos I also checked this site hanguladay.com and saw some differences that differs from the one taught here.
