The Korean alphabet letters might appear similar to Chinese and Japanese alphabets, but these letters can be simpler to learn. Thinkzone calls the Korean Hangul alphabet a "very simple and logical alphabet, which you can learn in a few minutes." The letters in the Korean alphabet number just 14 basic consonants and 21 vowels, with many similar-looking letters, so writing Korean letters can be a simple learning process.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Copy of Korean alphabet

- Calligraphy pen or other writing implement
Print a copy of the complete Korean alphabet. A copy of the Korean alphabet can be obtained at Omniglot.
Place tracing paper atop the Korean alphabet letters. Prepare pen for writing, loading it with ink if necessary.
Write Korean letters, beginning at the start of the Korean alphabet, by tracing the alphabet letters onto the tracing paper, following the lines as closely as possible. Tracing the letters will help you to learn the strokes needed to form the letters.
Continue to trace the alphabet letters until you have completed all of the letters in the Korean alphabet.
Practice the Korean alphabet regularly until you feel confident forming the letters. When you feel ready to do so, you can begin to write complete words.
Combine Korean letters to form words, such as your own name. Find a copy of your name in Korean at Chinese-Tools. The Korean language leaves spaces in between words, just as the English language does, so be sure to leave a small space in between each word.
