Hii guys!! I decided to make this tutorial for online Korean learning, this is a method my Korean teacher gave us, is completely free, really easy to use, and fun! Made this specially for @diaduithannah, hope you like it! 1. You must enter the page sejonghakdang.org and create an account. You can set it for it to be in english so it is easier to use.
2. Click on: Create an account
3. Once in there, click on the grey mark points so they turn blue, and click on General Membership Signup, if you want you can use the Social Media one but I was taught this method.
4. Fill in all the information and remember to select that you are a Student
5. Confirm your accont and go back to the home page
6. Once in the home page, click on Learn and Standard Curriculum
7. Go to the bottom of the page for the beginners option, if you are more advanced look for the one that suits you
There will be an option bar, choose Learn.
9. A tab will open up. Click on the korean “start”, this page will give you animations, conversations, audio, explanations, and exercises for you to practice grammar and vocabulary.
10. This is a little extra, but I would recommend for you to already know how to read Hangul (korean) in case you don’t know and you want to practice deeper the exercises, the page offers textbooks you can print. Click on search and select the option Sejong Korean Workbook in the ebook section. Choose the one that suits you. The one I pointed is for beginners and explains how to read Hangul! However I do recommend watching videos for learning Hangul as well.
Sincerely guys, this webpage is everything. It even gives you cultural lessons, it teaches you cultural traditions in Korea according to what you are seeing in the lessons! It is really fun and helps a lot. Any doubts about this web page I am all yours! Thank you! Please share if you find it helpful!
Let’s talk about the most crucial step towards learning the Korean language, which is learning how to read and write hangul! I know it seems scary and impossible at first glance. But did you know that the Korean alphabet was created with the purpose of being easy to learn?
favorite study place | definitely my desk! fun fact: a Korean monk actually wrote my name in hangul calligraphy and a smol message - he looked my in the face and wrote great/big (idk the best translation) hope on it. This really inspires me to give my best everyday!
Today, let’s take the time to learn about Korean culture on this widely celebrated holiday!~
Here are 6 things you should know about 설날 (Lunar New Year’s Day in Korea):
1. 설날 (seol-lal):
설날 is one of the biggest holidays for Koreans! Just like the New Years for us ‘Muricans, 설날 is a momentous time of the year for families to come together and celebrate with lots of love, laughs, warmth, and of course, wonderful food!
2. 차례 (cha rye)
차례 is an ancestral rite performed on 설날. Traditional foods are specifically arranged and set on a ritual table where families bow to ‘greet’ ancestral spirits to express gratitude and pray for the family’s wellbeing throughout the upcoming year.
3. 세배 (sae bae)
세배 is a deep traditional bow often performed in respect to one’s seniors. In my family, we all gather and bow to our eldest grandparents and receive their wisdom and wishes for us!
4. 새해 복 많이 받으세요!~
This phrase is used especially when bowing to an elder. It means: “I wish you many blessings (much luck) this year!”
5. 세뱃돈 (sae baet don)
세뱃돈 is the New Year’s “gift of money”. After children perform the 세배 to family elders, they often receive some money (세뱃돈) as well as the wishes and wisdom that the elders impart on them. Korean 세뱃돈 can be likened to the money given in Chinese custom, 红包. (恭喜发财、红包拿来 hahaha)
6. 떡국 (tteok guk)
떡국 is a Korean traditional soup that is made and eaten with the family.
구정 and 신정: Korea has two New Year’s celebrations! On January 1st, the celebration of the solar new year is called 신정 (shin jeong), and the lunar new year celebrated in late January / early February is called 구정 (gu jeong)!
