    Hinata! Don't learn too many languages at once. It is probably bad.

    And Korean is just as relavent to Anime and Manga and stuff.
    Has anyone here read Kiss me Kill me or Ragnarok?
    Did I love listening to Korean music? The Trax Boa and Se7en are AWESOME!
    Kdramas are good too.

    I've read "Kill Me Kiss Me"! I thought it was really good and I also listen to Korean music! You should check out "DBSK" or Dong Bang Shin Gi, they sing good and look good too! I recommend you should check this site if you're interested: Bleach Jump Festa 2004.

    Oh! And if you can, please come join the Korean FC or Korean Dramas/Movies FC!

    I wanna learn Korean too...The only 2 words I know are:
    Yaksok - promise
    Chingoo - friend

    Hey wow! That's exactly how I am! I live in California right now, where do you live? I quit church school but I came back recently.
    Korean is very different from English, it would help you understand Korean a lot more easily if you got some information about the culture. Like for instance the family tree is more complicated, there's a word for "uncle" in English, but in Korean it would be "big" uncle or "little" uncle depending on how old they are compared to your own dad. Also sentences are formed in a different way. If you wanted to say "I like apples" you would have to word it as "I apples like" in Korean. Letters make up semi-words and a few semi-words make a whole word and a few whole words make the sentence (phew).

    I hope that helps a little in your overall learning of Korean.

    I'm REALLY sorry for double posting but I had to say something...We're not really getting anywhere are we? I found a website that teaches Korean quite thoroughly and I can almost wrrite hangul fluenttly now! It's at LoD's but you have to go to the forrum andd click on "Korean chat" and then "Learn Korean". There's alot of info that you'll finbdd very useful!

    There is a Guy on Narutofan who is very good at Korean... Because he taught me mor in 3 hours than my lecturers did at uni for 3 years...

    Should I get him to come and give some lessons... But before you learn you must learn Hangul... Korean Characters.. It's pretty easy it only gets hard sometimes when you read because there are some rules..

    I know Korean. It's not that hard of a language, it's about as easy as Spanish IMO but then again, I grew up with it.

    What does North Korean have anything to do with the language? They speak the same language.

    Actually, North Korean and South Korean are starting to slowly seperate in language. Diplomats from Seoul had ordered octopus in a restaurant in Pyong Yang and received squid, with the North Koreans believing that's what they said because the word had changed meanings.

    South Korea has also developed a slightly altered form of transliteration, though most people have already been using it.. I'd help out, though I'm poor at reading transliterated Korean and my abilities in the language aren't as good as they should be.

    writing korean is very annoying. for example 같다 (to have) has teh same pronounciation as 갓다, 갇다, 갖다 or 갗다 (theyre all prounounced gat da and i forgot what the others meant -.-). anyway if you practice enough its easy to distinguish these kind of things.

    Gods, I have to keep an eye on this thread to check out people's advices.
    When I was in Korea, people automatically expected I could speak Korean because I was born there. (The fact that I grew up in Norway didn't have anything to say, they seem to think language is in your blood <_<; )

    Thankfully, hangul is easy to learn.

    Yeah, I had the immigration officer do it to me, even though I was in the line that was all non-Korean residents/citizens. He asked me after he was done how much Korean I knew and I'm just like..=\

    Actually I hope to be learning Korean (Hangul right?) soon. I heard if you know Japanese that Korean should be relatively easy to pick up, and vice-versa. But it's kinda strange since when I see some Koreans speak Japanese, many can't pronounce the 'r' and 'sh' sounds perfectly, so I'm guessing that they don't have those sounds in the language...

    Anyways, anyone know any good websites to learn more about the language? The alphabet should be tons easier than Japanese so I'm at least glad for that.

    I hope the US leave North Korea alone long enogh for a revolution to start. Would be fun to see em get taken out by the same marxist laws* they claim to follow (nothing could be further from the truth).


    *= Marx claimed that when a peoples living standard drops below a certain level, a revolution is inevidable. It is throug these revolutions that society evolves, so all dictatorships will eventually "invent" democracy
