How to read and write Hangeul (Part 1)


Hello everyone! How are you doing? If you have been studying with us through Level 1, now it’s time to learn to read and write Hangeul! The reason that we didn’t start by introducing the Korean writing system from the beginning of Level 1 is because we believe that being able to understand and speak some Korean is more important than having to learn the Korean alphabet without knowing any expressions to use in real life. The video series consists of 5 videos, and in Part 1, we are introducing the letters, ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, ㅁ, ㅇ, ㅏ, ㅗ, ㅜ, and ㅣ.

Just found out about our website and haven’t listened to any lesson? Click here.

Already over this level? Don’t worry! More updates are on the way!

Thank you!

  • SuJi

    Hey !
    How to say… When I read that, when I read… That’s just perfect ! I don’t have to say anything… That’s pretty good 😀
    But ! … I’m sorry. But to be honest, that’s not great to learn Korean ! Just for some hangeul and learn some things ~ Just for fun. But… Actually, if I want to learn Korean, I’ve got a lots of questions and I can’t learn with that.
    And… Maybe, if you teach hangeul, you can show some hangeuls… With 3 letters. Like a + m + eo… Anyway, something like that… I don’t know !
    So… That’s very very very good to read. That’s clear, great. But not perfect at all ~ :S
    I’m sorry.

    • Hi,
      There are many plug-ins in firefox so you can download one of them.
      Of course you will also learn how to use it.

    Hi TTMIK!! I’m trying to learn Hangul by myself but I don’t see lessons 3,4, and 5. You said there will be 5 alphabet lessons. I really want to watch them so I can learn the rest of the alphabet. Gamsahapnida!!

    • Hi Christina,
      I am sorry Christina. The 3rd, and 4th videoes are not made. We have been spending so busy days to make other educational contents.
      However we are planing to make other form of the Hangeul education videoes.
      Thanks for your comment.

  • hi
    how can i download this????????
    감사 합 니다

    • This lesson doesn’t include attched file so you can’t download the video from this post. If you use Firefox, you can download a plugin which can download Youtube video, and then you can download it.

  • Haha, I love 진석진씨 being so cool on his motorcycle. “Oh… were you looking at… 미???” 😀

    The funny thing is I studied Korean informally for four years, and no one ever explained that you should put your tongue between both sets of teeth when forming the ㄷ and ㅁ sounds. Not sure if any of the books explain that or not, but that’s a strange gap! Thank you, as always. : )

    • Hi Kate,
      It is correct to put your tongue between both set of teeth when you say ㄷ, but we don’t do that when we say ㅁ. It is bilabial sound.
      Thanks for your comment!

  • Michala


    First of all, thank you so much for these lessons! Don’t know what I’d do without them!
    I can’t seem to find the PDF’s for these hangeul lessons. Can you direct me to them?

    Again, thank you for a great website!

    • I am sorry. We didn’t make PDF for this video lesson, and we are planning to make new version of “How to read and write Hangeul”.

      It is takind long time but I hope you to wait for it.
