Cool Websites: Memrise.com – Integrated Korean Beginning 1 [☯ ~ #2]

Another leap towards this goal!

So I am still here on the process of self-learning reading hangul. Actually there are lots of websites out there that teach different languages for you to acquire and learn, and one of them that I’ve found is Memrise.

I have learned this site through Lifehacker (as always!) and I am on to taking my first course.

So far, here are the words that have been added to my vocabulary:

일학년
freshman /ilhaknyeon/

이학년
sophomore /ihaknyeon/

삼학년
junior /samhaknyeon/

사학년
senior /sahaknyeon/

lesson, chapter /gwa/

I am just not entirely sure of how these words are pronounced. I just included the romanisation based on my current knowledge of hangul pronunciation. I think this is what’s lacking in memrise. It would be better if they add audio functionality in the site wherein we could hear a native speaker pronounce the words.

Also, before enrolling to this site, you should be able to recognize the Hangul characters already because for sure things would become easier for you in remembering and learning the words. In addition to that, you have to have a hangul keyboard(!) because some of the exercises require you to type the words. Good thing I found one online that is very easy to use. You’ll just have to do a lot of copy-paste-ing in the process.

Anyway, this is better than nothing. Plus, signing up on this website is totally free! Maybe I’ll just have to find another site for more ways of learning the language. 😀
