On my way home today, I took a few shots of my condo entrance with my Lumia 640.
I know most folks are probably wondering, “Why would she want a pic of the letter E?”
You may see an ‘E’ , but I see the Korean letter ‘T’. It’s missing a vowel (because in Hangul/Korean consonants can not stand alone) though. Funny enough, on the wall adjacent to it is the letter ‘A’, which I now translate to ‘ㅏ’. Or to ‘ㅐ’
One of my goals is to learn to properly read, write, and comprehend Hangul someday. So I have started to learn the alphabet 🙂
Honestly – it makes lots of sense (the Hangul alphabet) when you break it down. For me now it’s a matter of practicing daily, working on my pronunciation, and memorizing words. As well as their many, many meanings!
For example, did you know that ‘Bae’ means belly and pear in Korean? So depending on the conversation, that could get really interesting 😉
A few weeks ago, I started Sarang Hallyu so I can have a place to talk more about why exactly I am learning Korean. You can check out my first vlog below:
There will be more discussions about this topic from me coming soon (and I would love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences as well!), but for now I leave ya’ll with a few links that I have begun to connect in my mind.
Someday in the future I will be a Konglish speaker ya’ll 🙂
How do ya’ll connect these days? Is there something others may find odd that you connect with? Let me know in the comments!
