Korean Hangul was created in the 15th Century by King Sejong. Unlike other alphabets that grew organically, Hangul, the Korean alphabet, was invented. Not only was it invented, but it was made with the specific purpose of being easy to learn and use. Basically, it’s almost impossible to design a simpler writing system than Hangul that would still work with the Korean language.
Think about that for a second – this language was constructed with language learners in mind! Hangul exists not to confuse and intimidate learners, but rather to give them the quickest access to Korean culture possible. The alphabet itself is not intimidating at all – the only intimidating part is the initial unfamiliarity you can get past in less than ninety minutes.
While some writing systems look impossible to scribe, Korean is easy. One of the letters is a circle, one is a square, and two are literally straight lines!
In fact it is so easy we will show you two examples right now,
‘ㅎ‘ consonant ‘h’;
‘ㅏ’ vowel ‘a’, pronounce “ah”
‘ㄴ’ consonant ‘n’
When put together they look like ‘한’ , which is pronounced as ‘Han’. Rather than being just three letters in a line, it makes a nice self-contained block!
‘ㅇ‘ has no sound
‘ㅏ’ vowel ‘a’ pronounce “ah”
‘ㅇ‘ has no sound
‘ㅣ‘ vowel ‘e’ pronounce “e”
When put together ‘아이’ , which is pronounced as ‘ah’ ‘e’ means children.
