Small Differences in Korean (Part 3)

Small Differences in Korean

Here is Part 3. Once again we feature some words that may have similar sounds and may be confusing for learners just beginning to learn Korean.

앉다 and 않다  are particularly interesting because they both feature silent final consonants but very distinct pronunciations. A few people also commented that you could add “안다” to these which means to hug. 거기 and 고기 also seem to be a bit confusing for beginners as well.

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
