Why should you learn Korean?

 

About the Korean language

Korean is a unique language. It's largely considered to be a language isolate, meaning that, unlike Romance languages such as French and Spanish, it has no direct linguistic relatives. Some linguists classify it in the Altaic language family because of its similarities to Turkish and Mongolian, but it's closer to Japanese in regard to grammar. Korean is considered to be one of the more difficult languages for Westerners to become fluent in due to its differences in syntax and elaborate honorific systems; however, the Korean alphabet, Hangul, is considered by scholars and learners alike to be one of the most logical and easy to learn in alphabets in the world.

Fun fact about Korean

Korea may be the only country in the world to celebrate its writing system. Every October 9, Koreans celebrate Hangul Day, commemorating the creation and adoption of their new alphabet in 1446.

Who speaks Korean?

With over 80 million speakers worldwide, Korean is the official language of both South Korea and North Korea, and it's one of the two official languages in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China. Most Korean dialects stem from Standard Seoul Korean and are, for the most part, mutually intelligible—so learning Korean with Rosetta Stone will give you a head start on conversing with most Korean speakers you encounter.

Happy birthday to you

When you learn a language, you inevitably learn about the culture and perspective of the people. When you learn Korean, you'll learn a whole new way to mark your birthday! When Korean babies are born, they're considered one year old according to the Korean age-reckoning system. After that, children count another year of age on each Lunar New Year—not on each subsequent birthday. Koreans do celebrate their individual birthdays, they just don't consider this to be the day when their age changes. Even if a child is born just a few days before the Lunar New Year, the child will still turn two at the start of the Lunar New Year.
