By | September 17, 2019


Oi amigas~ This is your friend, Woo Lara I have some questions for you How many of you would want to come to Korea? How many of you would like to have Korean friends? One more, how many of you are studying Korean to make Korean friends? If you thought “It’s me!” at least in one question You should know why you shouldn’t say THIS is Korea This video is about Korean pronunciation Lots of you learn Korean with “romanization” right? I’ve even got some questions that, Do Koreans know romanizations? Can I communicate with Korean with romanizations!? Well my answers are “NO” I didn’t even know what Romanizations were
until I worked in a company So, I’ll give you some tips about how to pronounce Korean better So my first tip to pronounce Korean better is, to lose the romanization Well romanizations are very comfortable
and easy for alphabet users But there’s one problem Since you are learning
Korean pronunciation with romanization Your Korean somewhat sound like
you are speaking English For example, this I met so many foreigner friends pronouncing this like: (Annyeonghaseyo is Hello in Korean) Ah~ did you mean 안녕하세요? Wow you are speaking Korean very well~ If it’s more complicated than 안녕하세요 For example like, How do I get to the “Jong gak” station? People won’t get it So please learn Korean pronunciation correctly
and lose the romanization My second tip to pronounce Korean better is: To pronounce Korean very
simply, precisely or abruptly! For example, this again: “An” is kind of similar But in this second syllable, In Korean it is “녕” But in English it sounds like
ㄴㅕㅕㅕㅕ엉(Nyeong) Do you get the problem? It should be just simple like, only one syllable: 녕 But ㄴㅕㅕㅕ엉 sounds kind of longer than just 녕 So it should be very simple and abrupt So try to pronounce it just 녕, not 녀ㅕㅕ엉(nyeong) Just 녕! Ha is also similar But “Se” It’s also very simple and clear, 세 But people usually pronounce it like, Sae~ There’s no Sae~ it’s just 세! Also for last, YO It’s just 요, not yo~ There shouldn’t be any sound like, Yo woo It’s just 요, 요. Not yo~ And, the third tip: So if you can sound like, 안 녕 하 세 요 Then it’s so much better than Annyeonghaseyo so one more step to sound correctly and perfectly Just be lazy when you are pronouncing Korean You don’t need to stress all the syllables when you speak Korean Just pronounce as if you are singing 안녕하세요 not like this It’s just like this: Just connect the all the sounds, all the syllables And the forth tip! Ask Koreans if you are pronouncing Korean right I’d like to tell you how to get
