Korean Hangul mnemonics

September 14th, 2015 in Korean Mnemonics

Along with our ambitious Arabic Alphabet project we are also working on a Korean Hangul mnemonics system for release in 2016.

( First off, although I have immersed myself in learning Korean I am still not any wiser over the whole Hangul vs Hanguel thing )

It will of course follow the same style and methodology as the Dr. Moku Hiragana and Katakana apps: each Hangul syllable/character will have an associated visual and verbal mnemonic. All you need to do is skim through the screens and then test your new Hangul skills with a quiz.

The Korean ‘alphabet’ is surprisingly easy to learn because unlike other writing systems like Japanese, Chinese, Arabic etc it’s not the product of hundreds of years of friction, absorption and cannibalisation. It was instead deliberately created by a heavy hitter called King Sejong back in the 15th century.

So for new students of Hangul it is remarkably logical and intuitive.

I’ll post some of our Korean Hangul mnemonics soon to give you an idea.

Stat tuned!
