WORD Wednesday - Basic Korean expressions

The language section of the Life in Korea website has a nice list of basic expressions. It's broken down nicely into categories (getting around, eating out, at the airport, etc.) and by parts of speech (adjective, noun, verb, etc.).

After that, it is further broken down into English, Hangul and pronunciation.

It's a decent list and if you know how to sound out Hangul, you should find these super helpful.

The Life in Korea site is really great, and in the culture and language sections there are some interesting areas. They have provided links to other language related things, such as a language exchange board where you can find someone to practice Korean with, or ask language questions.

Over all the language section is pretty basic at this site. But you might enjoy looking at other parts of the site, including the Scenes of Korea which has some great photography.
