Learn Korean – Lesson 1.05: The Vowel 애

In Lesson 1.04, we have learned about the vowel which sounds like soft “ey” as in paint.

In this lesson, we will learn another vowel that looks a little like – the vowel , which sounds like “ae” as in speck.

Hangeul
Phonetic Symbol [e/Ɛ] *from the International Phonetic Alphabet)
Romanization [ ae ] *from the Korean Ministry of Culture and Tourism, 2000)

This vowel looks very similar to the vowel . But for a clearer perception, let’s put it this way: the vowel “ae” in Hangeul is like the letters “O” and “H” written very close together. That’s your vowel ! Very easy to recall, isn’t it?

Do your best to be familiar with this vowel, memorize its appearance, so that you will be able to combine it with the other vowels that we have studied before and the rest of the vowels and consonants that we will be studying on the next lessons.

Now, for you to get familiar with the vowel , we will use it the way we used the previous vowels. We will begin by using it as a substitute for the sound /e/Ɛ/ in English words.
