With this video course and workbook combination, learning to read and write Korean cannot be easier!
Learning hangeul is the first step when you learn Korean language.
If you want to learn Korean, the first thing you have to do is to learn the Korean writing system, hangeul.
The good news is that it is very easy to learn to read and write basic Korean words and sentences! One day is enough if you spend enough time. Here is the reason why. The letters themselves work as phonetic symbols – they sound almost the same as the pronunciation of Korean language.
This video course teaches non-Korean speakers Korean letters and their sounds with English support. The instructor kindly teaches step by step how to pronounce each letter, how to combine them and how to read Korean syllables, words and sentences.
With Hangeul Workbook accompanied with each lesson, students can practice reading and writing by themselves.
The instructor: Dorothy Nam
Dorothy Nam studied media and communication at Dongkuk University in Korea and used to teach English to Korean students. She learned her English at early age when she lived in Cambridge, England and Vancouver, Canada later. During Yeosu EXPO, she helped many foreign visitors working as an English interpreter. She is currently working for PyeongChang Winter Olympics at Khaya Media Inc.

Throughout this book and series of video lessons, you will be guided to learn to read and write hangeul!!
