Know Your Symbols in Korean

Symbols in Korean


I’ve been teaching in Korea for awhile and these would always come up in the classroom. Most students didn’t know the English for many of the symbols (especially exclamation point) and I realized I didn’t know the Korean for them. Knowing these will be useful especially for those teaching in Korea.

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 and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters
