How to Read the Korean Alphabet (Hangul) – EASY KOREAN (EKH05)

How to Read the Korean Alphabet (Hangul) – EASY KOREAN (EKH05)


Okay. I think now we are ready to combine vowel and consonant parts together. Let’s quickly go over them again one more time. Ee, Ah, Yah, Uh, Yuh. Eu, Oh, Yoh, Woo, You. Eh, Ae. Wah, Wuh, Weh, Wee, Eui. ‘Geu,’ ‘ggeu,’ ‘deu,’ ‘ddeu,’ ‘beu,’ ‘bbeu,’ ‘seu,’ ‘sseu,’ ‘jeu,’ ‘jjeu.’ ‘Neu,’ ‘leu/reu,’ ‘meu,’ ‘eu,’ ‘cheu,’ ‘keu,’ ‘teu,’ ‘peu,’ ‘heu.’ Okay. So I’m going to make things really easy. In this video, we’re going to look at some English words or English-based words in Hangul. Now some of these words may not make any sense because they are basically Korean words. So the first one is Gah, seu. Gah-seu. Can you guess what the word is? It’s ‘gas.’ Beel, ding. Beel-ding. This is an easy one. Beel-ding is ‘building.’ Notice how a consonant shape goes underneath. So each letter here has two consonant parts and one vowel part each. Cohl, lah. Cohl-lah. In Korean, instead of saying ‘coke,’ people say ‘cola.’ Sah, ee, dah. Sah-ee-dah. Sah-ee-dah is from ‘cider,’ like in ‘apple cider.’ But it actually means a clear soft drink, like Sprite. So “Sprite” in Korean is ‘sah-ee-dah.’ Ah, pah, teu. Ah-pah-teu. Ah-pah-teu means ‘apart,’ meaning ‘apartment.’ There are lots of ah-pah-teu in Korea. Shoo, puh. Shoo-puh. I don’t know if you can guess which English word this is. It’s ‘super.’ Shoo-puh means ‘supermarket,’ a small grocery store. Pah, ee, ting. Pah-ee-ting. Pah-ee-ting means ‘fighting.’ When you say ‘pah-ee-ting,’ you are saying something like, “Go get ’em” or ‘Good luck.” Another way of saying ‘pah-ee-ting’ is ‘hwah-ee-ting.’ It means the same as ‘pah-ee-ting.’ Dee, ssee. Dee-ssee. Dee-ssee is the letters D and C. People say ‘dee-ssee’ to mean ‘discount.’ Rhee, moh, cohn. Rhee-moh-cohn. Rhee-moh-cohn means ‘remote control,’ “remocon.” Chee, keen. Chee-keen. A very easy one. Chee-keen means ‘chicken.’ But ‘chicken’ in Korean specifically means ‘fried chicken.’ When you want to talk about the animal, you’d use a Korean word, ‘dahg,’ ‘dahg.’ Notice how this one has two consonant shapes at the bottom. So that’s it. We are done learning Hangul for now. But remember you need to get some practice before you really become familiar with Hangul. So for the next five videos, we will practice reading Hangul with pictures. Take care. See you next time.
