Is anyone else here learning Korean, or knows Korean? I made this thread hours ago and got some replies but I had to go to work and it died before I got home...

I was just curious about it, so I started to learn a little bit about it. The more I learned the more it struck me as a really pretty language and also really challenging to learn, which made me want to keep learning more. I really like it.

Can you tell me specifically things that I am doing wrong?

>>55002965
I guess effeminate Kpop boys fill a niche that isn't common in the West. Ask a little girl why they fancy that sort of thing though; I wouldn't know.

It's the same over here btw. Each week I see girls discussing how cute their Korean teacher is on the train.

>>
>>55003132

I would say that this is the reason that Korean is a "girl" thing. Those guys have a more "qt" style than western guys. Although I'm not into kpop personally.

However I started watching some Korean TV shows for listening practice and I can see why they are popular. Noice work making TV shows, Korea. Usually when I try to watch TV shows in a language I am studying, they are terrible.

>>55003118
Your ㅈs sound rather more like ㅊ. I think you're putting too much breath into it. Try to make it sound more like the soft G in "concierge" than the J in "jam", but not by too much. Also the ㅅ in 학생 shouldn't be audible until you actually begin pronouncing the second syllable. Hak-seng, not haks-seng or haks-eng.

I really hope one day I can improve, it's difficult because at this point I can't even tell what I am doing wrong

Get yourself a local practice buddy who's native if at all possible. I'd offer myself if my Korean weren't so ass.

okay and I tried saying them...
>>
>>55003386
Yeah, that is a problem that will be affecting me. I don't know anyone IRL that speaks Korean. Thankfully I live in California so I should be able to find someone eventually. Right now I am just listening to audio files and watching TV shows but that's nothing compared to a person who can be there and correct the mistake until you get it right.
>>
>>55002781
Sure how can I recorde?

>>55002916
Aha that is you
>>
>>55003402
That's pretty much perfect for ㅈ. As for the other thing, I meant that your syllables are blending into each other too much. Consonants in Korean don't produce sounds on their own. When you see something like 생, you should treat the ㅅ as more like the starting configuration of your mouth as you transform into the ㅇ via ㅐ, but what you're doing sounds to me like you're sort of hissing an S sound in advance. Maybe that sounds kind of esoteric and nitpicky.

Do you have a recording device? If you don't have a standalone microphone you could use an integrated laptop mic. Just go to http://vocaroo.com/ and hit record. It's simple enough to operate.

If you've got neither, then we're all out of luck.
>>
>>55003537
No, that is very good information. Thank you for telling me so much about it because without someone IRL to help me, I pretty much have to go off of descriptions like you are giving. I will try to internalize the ㅈ sound and hopefully soon my ears will be accustomed to the language enough to hear the problem you're describing with blending ㅅ

Are you sure? Nah, I've never been to English spoken countries. Thank you for your compliment
>>
>>55004049
Sounds like you get some practice, at least.

Senpai, I need to improve my Korean but it's just not happening. I can't understand half the stuff being said on the news and such and I see no signs of it ever improving even when I try to learn all the new words I encounter. The abundance of homophones and my lack of knowledge of the underlying 한자 make it difficult to work out meanings via context. I try to expose myself to more Korean by looking for media that coincide with my interests but they're rather hobbyist and unsuited for common usage, making it difficult to retain.

I don't feel that I'm getting any closer to the common lexicon. Do you have any 꿀팁s for quickly improving my vocabulary?
>>
>>55004361
Oh you were not a korean?
>>
>>55004406
I am, but I spent a lot of time abroad and didn't really have many opportunities to learn Korean. I'd say I'm about as well-spoken as the average middle schooler here.
>>
>>55004463
Oh I see, where did you spend your life?
>>
>>55007632
NZ and Australia.
>>
>>55007825
So are you citizen of there?
or you live in korea now?
>>
>>55007965
I'm here forever now. I'm looking into serving as a conscript in the immediate future. Things are looking pretty bleak desu.
