“Chosongul” is the name of the Korean alphabet. It has 24 letters. Chosongul is a phonetic system of writing. Its symbols stand for sounds. To form words or syllables, letters are clustered together in groups.
For example, the Korean word for “school” is “hakkyo.” It is pronounced “HAHK-gyoh.”
Here is how the letters in “hakkyo” are written in Korean and how the entire word is written. Can you find the individual letters in the symbol for “hakkyo?”
Here is how to say two more things in Korean.
