Asking Koreans if Korean is Difficult to Learn | 한국어가 배우기 어려운 이유

As an English speaker, Korean is considered to be one of the most difficult languages to learn. Anyone who's studied Korean can tell you this: it takes a lot of time and effort to learn. But I wondered what Korean people thought about their language. Would Koreans think that their language was difficult to learn... or even easy to learn?

The two questions that I asked them specifically were these: “한국어가 배우기 어려운 언어라고 생각하세요?” (“Is Korean a difficult language to learn?”), and “한국어를 배우는 사람들에게 응원의 말 부탁 드릴게요.” (“Any words of encouragement for people who are learning Korean?”).

    This interview series has been great! Such a great cast of characters you have interviewed here- from the gorgeous woman in the flower dress to the spunky Korean mom to the eloquent father with his baby and the girl with the glasses next to her friend in gold- she's awesome- she speaks so with so much pride about the language and Korea....
