Optional romanisation


I agree with Steven. An option to leave out the romanisation sounds very good to me!


Great work! Also in the games the romanisation is gone. Thanks, this is so much better!


G'day, The one options I would love to be added is an ability to remove the romanisation. My eyes keep being drawn to them even though I can read the Korean! I find them quite confusing because each site seems to have their own version! As a programmer myself, I think the perfect solution would be to have a global option in the user preferences to hide or show the romanisation. If a user has the romanisation hidden then maybe have it displayed when the mouse cursor hovers over the Korean word for a second or two. Like a tool-tip. A second and easier to implement option is to enable or disable by lesson. People like me can hit "Hide Korean Romanisations" before we continue with the lesson :-) Regards, Steven.


I like this idea as well.


I also agree. Even though I try not to read the romanizations I always end up reading those first. I really like the ideas Steven had.


Great idea to opt out of romanisation. Particularly in the 'games' where the phonics shown doesn't match either


Sounds like a good idea. It would be useful for those who already know how to read well. But for beginners like me, it helps just to see how it should sound first. I think that's what this course is geared towards anyway.


I disagree JRain. Romanization of Korean is terrible and won't help your pronounciation at all. Learning Hangul should be your first step in tackling Korean. Then listen to a lot of Korean to pick up the nuances of pronounciation.


Of course, this option does now exist. Go to your profile and turn romanisation off. I just did it and it is much better.
