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.

Also remember that romanization is only a tool. Try not to depend on it too much. Learning the Hangul alphabet is the key to success!
