When I decided that I will learn Korean the linguistics way, I stopped on buying phrase books and began looking for reference materials that would help me in my objective.
The sound of this letter to me is half way between an R and L. I want to say one incredibly important thing before you continue. People constantly ask me about the pronunciation of Korean letters, and how they can be best represented using English Latin characters.
There is no perfect way to represent Korean characters using English letters or sounds. The English letters presented above are the letters that you will commonly find being used to represent their respective Korean letters.
While it is helpful at first to memorize the general sound of a Korean letter by using the English letter — you have to remember that Korean sounds are vastly different than English sounds. Not only are Korean sounds different than English sounds — but English sounds different depending on who is speaking because of accents.
Therefore, there is no perfect way to represent the Korean sounds in English. For example, you will often see: The only way to know exactly how a Korean letter sounds is to listen to it.

The difference is very important because the way every Korean letter is written depends on if the vowel is drawn vertically or horizontally. One block always has exactly one syllable.
Important rules you need to know about these structures: Always always always always always. Blocks containing a horizontally drawn vowel are always drawn in one of these two ways: Blocks containing a vertically drawn vowel are always drawn in one of these two ways: Now that you know those rules, it is just a matter of putting the consonants and vowels together to make blocks.
Determine if the vowel is horizontal or vertical. Determine if the syllable ends in a consonant. So we need to fill 1, 2 and 3, so we need to use:At the top right, tap the Down Arrow the language to translate into.
