The Korean language is spoken by more than 75 million people, out of which 48 million stays in South Korea and 24 million in North Korea, more than 2 million are in China and approximately 1 million in the USand 500,000 in Japan. The official language of South Korea and North Korea is Korean but they have different alphabetization, spelling and choice of vocabulary which is certified by the Korean language society in 1933.

THE KOREAN LANGUAGE

Hangul is the name of the Korean alphabet. Although the spelling, alphabet and vocabulary differ slightly between the two countries, Korean is the official language of both South Korea and North Korea. Linguists believe the Korean language is a member of the Altaic family of languages, which originated in northern Asia.

There are five major dialects in South Korea and one in North Korea. Despite differences in the dialects, speakers from different areas can understand each other.

The Korean alphabet is easy to learn and Korea enjoys one of the highest literacy rates in the world.

KOREAN LANGUAGE WRITING SYSTEM

Writing System The Korean alphabet was invented by King Sejong in 1443. Since the Korean alphabet was created through an intensive analysis of Korean phonology and speaking patterns, it is now praised as one of the greatest intellectual achievements and one of the most scientific writing systems (Kim, 2010; Sohn, 1999). The original name of the alphabet was Hunmin Jeong Eun or “the correct sounds of the instruction of the people.”
