Is Korean easy or hard to learn?
If you just want to have simple, short conversations in Korean it might not be too hard to learn. If you want to be fluent in Korean, it may be another story. A lot of people think Korean is easy because learning Hangeul is a piece of cake. (Hangeul is the Korean alphabet, the Korean writing system.) But that's where all the easiness stops. Korean grammar is vastly different from English. Many people have a hard time differentiating sounds and pronouncing them. Korean vocabulary isn't a child's game either. The best way of learning Korean is to interact with Korean speakers as much as possible. If you can't speak, just listen to them. Take a Korean class so you can learn grammar. 9KOREA offers free video lessons on YouTube called EASY KOREAN. (Click here to access the lessons.)
