It took me long enough!
If you’re interested in learning how to speak Korean, learning how to read it is a good place to start. Similar to the English alphabet, there are consonants and vowels – each with their own specific sounds.
With only a few tricks being thrown in (like R and L being the same sound sometimes) and a few weeks of practice I was able to start reading basic signs around the city.
Now that I can read the symbols, now I just need to figure out what it all means.
If you’re looking to get a basic understanding, this comic strip by Ryan Estrada helped me quite a bit!
