Dan Massicotte asks if I could:
It would be awesome, if you broke down how exactly you went about breaking down each word. I’m just picking up the language now as much as possible for the fall, since I’ll be teaching English there.
He was referring to a relatively popular post of mine called “Top English words translated into Korean (phonetically).”
Not sure what you mean, but do you mean something like this?
on = 위에 위 = the “wee” sound; 에 = the “eh” sound. Together, it’s “Wee-eh”
for = actually, I realized from above, this one is pretty complicated. I’d advise figuring this one out in a class or by a better expert. The version I gave basically means someone does something “for” another.
I = 나는 나 = “nah” and 는 = “neun…so of course, together it’s “nah-neun”
Does this help? Feel free to follow up Dan.
