What I hate about speaking Korean

 

I’ve gotten better with saying these letters as I study more, but they are still the most difficult and annoying to pronounce for me. Especially when coupled with other letters. Sometimes I say them too strongly or not strong enough which results in confused stares from my listeners.

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly to have an easier time learning Korean.

      Yes! Thank you! My experience exactly. Oh, and add to that – the total paranoia I have about pronouncing a kid’s name which has the syllable 동 in it.

    2. I remember reading a yogurt container and my friends said it sounded like I was saying a sex position lol

    3. I can totally relate. My Korean teacher does random pronunciation drills of these letters and I get so frustrated. But the worst part is when she’ll start saying syllables and asks us one by one which letter is she saying. For example, “Am I saying ㅃ or ㅍ?” O__o

      What I hate most about speaking Korean is using polite words to an older people and adults. I’ve gotten better with practicing my Korean-language speaking skills as I practice more, but’s it’s perplexing for me. Sometimes I say the unpolite words with an aggressive tone to my friend who is older than me and her parents, too. Talking like that would make them angry.
