Types of Deer in Korean (Collab with LingoDeer)

Types of Deer in Korean

Thanks to LingoDeer for contacting us and giving us this idea for a post. Koreans really aren’t familiar with the names for different types of deer because they really don’t have any chances to see many types of deer except for at the zoo. I’ve seen most types back in the states on various trips to the wilderness.

As you can see, the word for deer is 사슴 and we’ve listed the 6 most common types along with the cute mascot from LingoDeer.

LingoDeer is a very helpful app that focuses on helping people learn Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.

You can start off with the basics by learning how to write and then move on to other lessons (along with helpful tips and flashcards) that will get you speaking your target language in no time. Check out more info about the app at the official LingoDeer website.

Korea is known for it’s animal cafes. There are plenty of dog and cat cafes around so check them out if you’re ever in Seoul.

The word cat in Korean is 고양이 (go-yang-i) and sounds very similar to another word ‘고향’  (go-gyang) which is a running joke among many Koreans. Many Korean kids who are just starting to learn Korean and form sentences often get the two confused.

Meow in Korean

If you want to describe the sound of a cat meowing, you would say 야옹 (ya-ong). It’s actually pretty interesting how Korean and all languages differ in how they describe the sound a certain animal makes.

For instance, woof woof for dogs is 멍멍 (meong-meong) in Korean which to me, sounds nothing like a dog barking. Click here for more on animal sounds in Korean.
