안녕하세요!!

Let’s jump right in and learn some Hangul !!

Korean syllables

  • You can only use 1 consonant before each bowl and a total of 2 after it
  • Hangul has 40 letter 21 vowels/19 consonants
  • They are written in blocks between 2-4 letters
  • The first letter in a block has To be a consonant 

PLACEHOLDER 

The placeholder: ㅇ 

The placeholder is silent Like the silent “e” at the end of English words etc 

  • All vowels either have a long vertical or horizontal line
  • Horizontal = placeholder goes above (으)
  • Vertical = placeholder to the left (이)


There is 8 vowels and 11 semi-vowels in Hangul 

Horizontal:

ㅇ + ㅡ = 으 (sounds uoh)

ㅇ + ㅜ = 우 (sounds oooo)

ㅇ + ㅗ  = 오 (sounds oh)


Vertical 

ㅇ + ㅏ = 아 (sounds ah)

ㅇ + ㅣ = 이 (sounds ee)

ㅇ + ㅓ = 어 (sounds ohh: sort of like oawh)

——————————————-

Sometimes you will see words such as 안녕하세요 

Do you see that it has 2 ㅇ?

The first ㅇ (안ㄴ) is the placeholder 

The second ㅇ DOES have a sound, it sounds like NG like ring
