How to pronounce questions in Korean

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Korean pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Korean words and phrases, this lesson will help you.

Congratulations, you have completed this lesson. Don’t forget to practice your new vocabulary as much as possible. I always find that writing words or phrases on post-it notes and putting them up around my house is a good way to memorize them. Put a series of words or phrases on the bathroom wall and practice them as you brush your teeth each day!
