안녕

Oh god don't tell me I'm the only one here interested in Korean.

I just want to find people who are learning/speak Korean to help me with my own. I've been learning Korean since late December, quite slowly at first (learning to read it took me ages because of my memory) and now it's speeding up.
I still need a lot a help on HOW to translate it into ENGLISH.

hi whoever is learning or knows korean, lets help each other in here please.
아무도? ㅠㅠ

I've kinda been debating posting D: On one hand, me me me I love Korean stuff, I'm half Korean myself xD On the other hand, I don't speak or know Korean at all >> I am, however, interested in learning Korean, even though I've been putting it off :x However C: I am interested in what you're using to learn it. Are you teaching yourself from a book?

Sorry if this is a completely unhelpful post btw xD; Just had to show that you're not the only one interested in Korean :3

I used a few sites to learn the hangul and pronounciation then I started Rosetta Stone and livemocha.

www.livemocha.com

I do advise it if you're not willing to get a crack of Rosetta or pay 300 dollars.

Well, Korean dishes and songs were familiar in my country, and I like the movies too.

I'm actually Korean and it's my first language. I'm living in Canada for now, though I'll be heading back this summer. 안녕~! Hi~!

Oh, and Korean, Japanese and Chinese do have some resemblance. Although they look quite different, many Korean words are derived from Chinese, and since Japan's "overtaking" of Korea about a century ago (I honestly don't know how to describe this), some parts of Japanese have blended into Korean. And Koreans have passed the Chinese and Korean culture over to Japan in the old times, so I'm sure there are some parts of Japanese that bear resemblance to the two languages.

About the first question, yes, Korean is related to Chinese. What happened in the history was (I'm not exactly sure, so don't quote me on this one) that culture of China was passed down to the Koreans, who then passed it on to the Japanese. Over time, the culture of Korea began to differentiate itself from the Chinese because of the seclusion, and same goes for the Japanese. They still communicated, but that was all they did. So the words of Hangul, especially the more technical terms, are all in Chinese. A research showed that 70% of the words were originated from Chinese, BTW. Think of Latin for English, and you'll have the basic gist of it.

And for the second one, I'm not sure exactly HOW I can help you learn. I mean, I came to Canada for 3 years, and I've only gotten to Grade 4 education in Korean. I can still speak, read, and listen to it fluently, but I suck at writing. I speak it regularly with Korean students in my school and my parents, that's why I can still do all of the three that I've listed.

Above is exactly why I sometimes hate the western culture. Ignorant people like you shouldn't post when you don't know what you're talking about. For example, if I said German, French, and English are exactly the same since they use almost identical alphabet, would that be right? And Chinese, Japanese and Korean people are less similar than the said above countrymen. We don't even share the alphabet, excluding a language that goes far back in history as a root, similar to Latin.

Geez, think before you type, and about how you can insult others by your unthoughtful actions.

I agree with this. Just because you don't recognise certain a certain language(s), doesn't automatically make them the same. I speak a fair bit of Japanese, and I have a friend who speaks Korean, and they are completely different. Just because they're both asian languages doesn't make them all "chang cheng ga dim stuff", and that's a hurtful, and insensitive stereotype. As Latisiblings said, they have similiar roots, but just like how English, French, and German all have similar roots in Latin.

Hi, you're right for the most part, except Japan sent over scholars to China in the 1200s or so to study their language, medicine, and other sciences. They brought back the language, which eventually evolved into the writing system they have to have today. Korea did not pass on the chinese written language to Japan.

miyoun: 祝你好運

That's quite fascinating, considering that with my knowledge of Chinese (specifically Cantonese), I noticed that I could randomly pick up Japanese words, but not quite on Korean. I do listen to Korean randomly if only because I watch Starcraft. XD
