Spoken Korean vs Written Korean | Korean FAQ

There are many differences between spoken and written Korean - that is the Korean you'll actually hear Koreans using, and the Korean you might see written somewhere. They're the same language, but there are some fundamental differences that can make the two difficult. In order to master reading, writing, speaking and listening, you'll have to understand these major differences.

These differences include word order, grammar forms used and conjugations, verb endings, as well as vocabulary, phrases, and more. Did I miss anything? Let me know in the comments~

  • Can you give me an example of what you mean?

  • There are some sentence connectors that look different when writing and/or look like other sentence connectors. Could you do a video presenting them and differentiating them?

  • Can you help me explain the difference of "-주라고 하다" and "-달라고 하다"? Thank you. ^^
