I am now just starting the simple vowels section. I will use the 1st vowel as an example. "ㅏ" is how it is shown , as a single vowel able to male the sound "ah". When it comes to the examples it is "아버지" what is this circular character placed in front of the "ah". Have i missed something important or is it further along and I have yet to learn. All help appreciated, great program so far ! Another example 오 for ㅗ what is the circular character.
Confused about simple vowels

Well, the circle in front of the vowel helps the vowel make a sound. The circle is silent when it comes before a vowel. You cannot make the vowel make a sound if its just "ㅏ" but if you add the circle before "ㅏ" people can read it as "ah". Do you understand now?
