My new Korean vocabulary channel on YouTube

By Maangchi

Hi everybody!

Ooh whoo! exciting news! I got a new iPad so I could create my new YouTube channel! Good excuse, eh? : )

This new channel is for you to learn how to read, write, and speak Korean food vocabulary.

I’ve seen that many people have problems pronouncing Korean words correctly. Others are very interested in learning how to write Korean. So I decided to make this new channel to illustrate Korean reading, writing, and pronunciation simply and clearly.

Whenever I post a new video, I always add the Romanization for people who can’t speak Korean, but I know that it’s still difficult to follow the exact pronunciation. For example, rice cake is Romanized as tteok or ddeok but it’s difficult to pronounce because there’s no English letter for the initial sound in this word. I’ve heard lots of people say “bibimbaep” instead of “bibimbaap.” Sometimes on TV I’ve heard people talking about Korean food but pronouncing it a little wrong. I started this channel so at least my readers can learn how to pronounce, read, and write these words. I’m going to use these videos on my website, so you’ll always be able to find them easily.

I hope these videos help you a lot, especially if you want to learn the Korean language.

Good luck with your Korean cooking and learning Korean words!
