Hey, and welcome back! So this class is basically an extension of the first class...
Today we're going to learn the rest of everything you need to know to literally be able to read and write everything you will ever see in Korean.
Specifically we're going to cover how to read the vowel combinations, sounds of double-consonants, consonants in the final position of a block, and then just mention a few things about some other consonants that we'll want to keep on the backburner for later classes when we're working on pronunciation.
One thing I'll say about these (and I'll address further in the videos) is that a significant number of people tend to get stuck on these and really stunt their progress because of it, and so I encourage you to stay positive, focus on progress over perfection, and we can work through it together.
Let's get started!
So that's it for our two-part mini series on how to read Korean. From next class onward we will be focused on learning how to SPEAK Korean, so at risk of beating a dead horse very badly, I'll say it one more time...
To really get the most out of the classes from here on, it's really important that you have the alphabet under your belt. Again, speed is not important but an accurate (even if slow) association between the characters and their sounds will REALLY help.
So if there is anything I can do to help with that, please either email me or leave your question on the wall of the facebook page and I will do my best to help clear things up as soon as I can.
Thanks for watching, and I hope you're enjoying the classes so far!
