Korean

Korean is the official language of South Korea and North Korea. It is also one of the two official languages of the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China.

Korean is spoken by the Korean people in North Korea and South Korea and by the Korean diaspora in many countries including the People's Republic of China, Japan, and the United States. There are about 78 million Korean speakers worldwide.

Though Korean writing uses characters that for many Europeans look similar Chinese writing, in fact Korean is much simplified and much easier to understand.

In the 15th century this simplified system – called Hangul - was commissioned by Sejong the Great.

In explaining the need for the new script, King Sejong explained that the Korean language was different from Chinese.

Using Chinese characters to write was so difficult for the common people that only privileged aristocrats - usually male - could read and write fluently. The majority of Koreans were effectively illiterate before the invention of Hangul.

Hangul is somewhat phonetic, and the alphabet consists of just 24 characters – about the same size as European Languages. So this makes Korean writing much easier for the Student. You want to learn English, Mandarin or another Language?
