Korean is the official language of South Korea and North Korea, as well as one of the two official languages in China’s Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture. It is also one of the two official languages in Japan’s Chongryon and the United Nations. Korean is spoken by approximately 77.2 million people.
Korean is a language isolate, meaning that it is not related to any other known language. It is written in a unique script called Hangul, which was created by King Sejong the Great in the 15th century. The language also uses Chinese characters, known as Hanja, for some words and phrases.
Korean is an agglutinative language, meaning it uses a wide variety of affixes to modify words. It also uses a subject-object-verb sentence structure, which is uncommon among European languages.
Korean is considered a difficult language to learn for English speakers due to its complex grammar and writing system. However, it is relatively easy for Korean speakers to learn English.
