Teach yourself the Korean alphabet, Hangeul. To start, select a letter type and then select an individual letter from the corresponding list. The initial romanization shows how the letter is romanized at the beginning of a syllable block, while the final romanization shows how the letter is romanized at the end. Not included in this Demonstration are consonant final clusters (ㄳ,ㄵ,ㄶ,ㄺ,ㄻ,ㄼ,ㄽ,ㄾ,ㄿ,ㅀ,ㅄ) or 받침. The pronunciation/romanization for these clusters is more complex and changes depending on the following syllable block. Please visit the links provided for additional assistance.
