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.

    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.

    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

    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.

      haha that is definitely a syllable you don’t want to say too strongly 😉
