Autumn Vocabulary in Korean
The fall weather is finally in full swing here in Korea after a toasty summer. It hasn’t gotten too cold yet, but the nights are getting quite chilly. Fall and spring are probably the best seasons in Korea. Summer is always too hot and humid, and winter is bone chilling cold. It doesn’t even snow here that much so no snow days!
Hiking at this time of the year is popular among Koreans as well. I like to take a few trips to some local mountains. Always a good time. If you are thinking about visiting Korea, I would recommend this time the best.
Here is a review of the vocabulary in this infographic:
가을 (ga-eul) = Fall/Autumn
잎 (ip) = Leaf/Leaves (same spelling for both singular and plural)
할로윈 (hal-lo-win) = Halloween
단풍 (dan-pung) = Fall foliage
스웨터 (seu-we-teo) = Sweater
호박 (ho-bak) = Pumpkin
쌀쌀한 날 (ssal-ssal-han nal) = Chilly Day
달 (dal) = Moon
갈퀴 (gal-kwi) = Rake
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.
