안녕하세요 thyinn~

ㄱ is normally more of a 'k' sound when it is at the beginning of a word and more of a 'g' in the middle of the word.

Be careful not to make too much of a 'k' sound though, because you might get confused with ㅋ, which is the soft 'k' sound.

I hope I haven't confused you!

Hi Eyerus!

If you're looking for the meaning of specific words, you may want to copy the word and look it up in an online dictionary.

You might also find it useful to copy the Korean script into Google Translate to compare words:


The translations are not always accurate but it will give you an idea of how the words are split up and translate simple words for you.

I hope that helps!
