Of course, we cannot start leaning Korean without mastering Korean alphabet and pronunciation. That is why in the first two weeks we will also have Phonetics lessons.This week we are going to start learning Korean alphabet, pronunciation of basic sounds and writing of letters. Please note that each video is followed by a section with writing sheets for your practice.
