Korean


Focus on Korean
 

  • Korean has approximately 80 million native speakers worldwide. The vast majority are based in South and North Korea, although there are large communities in parts of China, Russia, Japan and the USA.
  • Interestingly, the name Seoul is actually simply the Korean word for ‘capital city’. 
  • The Korean language has existed for over 1000 years, but was originally written using Chinese characters, until King Sejong the Great invented the Hangul alphabet in the 15th century.
  • Hangul is not a picture based alphabet like Chinese. It is based on 24 letters (14 consonants and 10 vowels) that are written in clusters of 2 to 5 characters which together form a syllabic unit.
  • Learns will be pleased to know that, unlike Chinese and Japanese, modern Korean is written with spaces between words, and punctuation marks are almost identical to Western ones.
  • Fun fact: The London Korean Film Festival takes place annually in the city, and showcases some of the very best in contemporary and classic Korean cinema, along with an exciting mix of film premieres and special events.
