Hi, i was wondering how you type compound vowels like (wa, wae, oe, wo etc.) on the keyboard when there is no symbol on it? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks

Hello ClementY,

These letters are actually combinations of letters. As such, they are made by typing the individual letters you see from left to right and top to bottom.

For example, ㅘ is typed by typing ㅗ and then ㅏwithout any spaces; ㅝ is made by typing ㅜ and then ㅓ without any spaces. If this is a valid combination in Korean, they will automatically arrange themselves.

Please see lesson 7.8 under the Language & Culture Lessons for a complete explanation on how to type using the Korean keyboard.
