3+3 reasons for learning Korean

Still not sure you are ready to learn Korean? Here are a few linguistic and cultural reasons:


Three linguistic reasons to learn Korean

  1. The alphabet, called "Hangul," is logical. It has 24 characters, and you can learn to read it in less than a day!
  2. Korean is a syllabic script: A Korean syllable consists of several characters written above and next to each other in an imaginary field. The syllables, as a whole, are written from left to right. Not difficult at all, but it looks very exotic and fun!
  3. There are more than 78 million people in North- and South Korea, many of whom are friendly and speak Korean as their native language. Many of them, however, do not speak your language.


Three cultural reasons for Korean

History and culture are deeply integrated within a language. Korean is particularly exciting in this respect.

  1. Germany has a lot in common with North and South Korea: The historical experience of being a divided country and a passion for art, good food, and youth culture make it worthwhile to get in touch with the people directly, especially since many Koreans have a positive image of us Germans.
  2. A fascinating culture awaits you at the other end of the world: Tradition and modernity are just as close together there as are astounding natural landscapes and cities that never sleep.
  3. South Korea is currently considered cool and in fashion. According to a U.S. survey, it occupies eleventh place worldwide, in terms of international influence - reason enough to get to know the Korean lifestyle in more detail, isn’t it?


And this is just the beginning. Catch the Korean wave for yourself, and surf to positive experiences of K-pop, K-beauty, webtoons and more!


Conclusion: Learn and Speak makes your Korean dreams come true!

If you decide to learn a new foreign language, you might not immediately think of Korean. However, upon closer inspection, there are more than enough reasons to learn it! 

Last but not least, a language certificate in a relatively uncommon foreign language can definitely add that certain something to your CV.
