I've started learning Hangul, the Korean alphabet. It consists of 14 consonants and 10 vowels, for a total of 24 letters. It's not hard but it does take some time and effort to study the characters. I have learned most of the vowels so now whenever I see Hangul written, I can spot them easily. I enjoy studying new languages so this is exciting for me. It only makes sense since I'm living and teaching English in Korea. If you want to try learning some Hangul, check out these free online lessons from J. David Eisenberg (he makes it interesting and humorous).
I'm posting from work, so stay tuned for more pictures and experiences as the weekend is near--it's approximately 8.5 hours away. ;)
