    Hello fellow members!
    Are you interested in learning korean? <maybe not because Naruto is Japanese>
    Well I'll make it simple as possible!

    Let's start by a simple introduction sentence.


    the sentence is in honorific form which shows that you are showing respect to elders or someone you have just met.

    korean: 안영하세요, 나의 이름은 <name> 입니다!
    pronounce: ahn yong haa sae yo, naa yeh ee lumm unn <name> ipp nii daa!

    english: Hello, my name is <name>!

    Let's try a formal introduction sentence!

    korean: 안영, 나의 이름은 <name> 이야!
    pronounce: ahn yong, naa yeh ee lumm unn <name> ii yaa!

    english: Hi, my name is <name>!


    Korean, like japanese, is pretty similar.
    A bit of Korean words orginate from Japanese aswell!

    Some of them are:

    bread: 빵 - ppang / pan
    grape: 포도 - po do / bo do
    onion: 다마네기 - Daa maa negi

    and lots more!

    So in a way I guess korean is like japanese...except with different characters.
    Yeah...
    If you wish to learn how to say a certain sentence please post here the sentence and I'll write it down for you guys! I hope you liked how I did this...please don't be mad at me if you didn't like it... :,(

    thank you for reading~

    Cool, I'm Korean. xP

    Ummm I want to learn how to say "Do you have gum?" xD Forgot how to say it...

    Because there's lots of fobs at my church and I LOVE teh gum.

    I already know how to say "Can I have some gum?" (Gum Juhm Joo Say Yoe right? XP).

    pronounce: gum haa naa iit uhh yo?

    Ah hah hah I hate Korean romanization. D:
    If you plan on learning Korean, learn the Hangul first. It's so much easier. <3

    Just a few "corrections" (to clear things): 입니다 (romanized: ipnida) would be pronounced more "im-ni-dah". Try saying ipnida fast! Sounds like an 'M'.

    And to ask for gum, yes, it's "Gum (?) chom chuseyo" :D

    And a question. I thought the 있 in 있어요 would be pronounced like it's spelled "iss" not "it." ???

    Ummm, like aimless said, there's already a Korean thread in here. And the way you're teaching it won't help anyone at all. All you're doing is telling them how to introduce themselves and ask for gum. :oh

    The other thread has lot more and elementary basics in learning to read and speak Korean. :nod

    And also, Korean originated from China and Mongolia. Japanese was originated mostly from Korea and Mongolia and Chinese. Korean words were never borrowed from Japanese IMO. For example: Promise in Japanese "Yakusoku" and Korean is "Yaksok" Same as handshake "Akushu" in Japanese, and "Aksuk" in Korean. See the similarity? :nuts
