    Hi! I am trying to learn Korean but it's proving very hard, especially pronunciation. Could anyone help me learn, or know of any resources to help me learn on my own?

    I am saving up to get a few weeks of tutoring, but until then I am learning the very basics (alphabet/grammar).


    Hi! I'm learning Korean too, but I only know very little so far.

    The best, and easiest resource to use, in my opinion, is www.talktomeinkorean.com Not only does it have podcasts and videos, but also pdf's for each lesson which explain grammar, phrases and pronunciation. Have a look round on the site or check out some of their youtube videos too if you haven't already

    Alternatively, there are some fantastic tumblr accounts/posts which are filled with great stuff (which I'm sure you can access without a tumblr account!) such as 'bitesizekorean'. Also, have a search around on the #langblr or #korean resources tag They are filled with different website/pdf texbook links (look for the ones titled 'korean resource masterposts' for the most resources)!

    (One thing I do suggest, if you haven't already, is learn hangul! Spend plenty of time watching, and most importantly, listening to videos of the korean alphabet on youtube, and just repeat each character to yourself. Knowing the alphabet will help with not only your reading but also pronunciation!)

    Sorry it's not much, but I hope this helps!
