Introduction

Learning a foreign language requires a lot of patience and


determination. It takes a long time to be able to speak a new
language well. How great would it be if we could acquire a
different language with just a push of a button?

This book is based on an animated movie called ‘Toy Story 3’


by Pixar. In it, Buzz Lightyear accidently changes to Spanish
mode. For this book, I imagined that Buzz switched to Korean
mode to help Woody court a Korean Barbie. There are also fun
activities including colouring pages and a picture puzzle to
make the learning fun and exciting.

Hanguel

Korean alphabet is called Hangeul in Korean.

The alphabet: Consonants


The Korean alphabet has ten basic consonants and nine variations of these.
In English, certain pairs of consonants, like p/b, t/d, s/z, and k/g, have a pronunciation that
differ mostly in whether they are voiced or voiceless. Korean consonants do not have that
same distinction, but rather differ according to whether they are “plain (ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, ㄹ, ㅁ, ㅂ,
ㅅ, ㅇ, ㅈ, and ㅎ)”, “aspirated (ㅋ, ㅌ, ㅍ, and ㅊ)”, or “tense (ㄲ, ㄸ, ㅃ, ㅆ, and ㅉ)”.
Here are the consonants with their pronunciation.

10
Hangeul is written: 한 (han) ㅎ(h) + ㅏ(a) + ㄴ(n) 글(geul)ㄱ(g) + ㅡ(eu) + ㄹ(l)

The alphabet: Vowels


There are 21 letters used to represent vowels: six basic vowels (ㅏ, ㅓ, ㅗ, ㅜ, ㅡ, ㅣ), nine
combinations of those six basic vowels (which originally were all pronounced as diphthongs),
and six vowels with an extra short dash representing the initial y [j] sound.
Here are then main vowels with their pronunciation.
