Actually, learning many of the fruits is pretty easy because they sound almost the same in English. The pronunciation has just been “Koreanized”. There are a ton of fruit names, but these seem to be most common and I tried to throw in some names you probably would not have known. We may try to do a second part with more fruits at a later time.

In the meantime, below you will find some example sentences of the fruits listed in this infographic. Remember that Romanization is only a tool and it’ll benefit you to learn Hangul properly to pronounce the words correctly ๐Ÿ™‚
