Hangeulnal



Today is Hangeulnal, which means ''Korean Language Day." Among the things of which I am proud, Korean takes the best part of it to me because the character itself is quite scientific and simple. Furthermore, as far as I know, Korea is the only country that has the special day for its own language so there is an international language conference on this day. What you see on the photo is the very first Korean text which contains King Sejong's declaration about having our own language. I'm sure Korean is the most beautiful language in the world.:)

That's an interesting plaque.

When I hear Koreans speak their language, it's full of emotion. Of the Asian lanuages, it is quite beautiful.

Well hanguel is certainly a heck of a lot easier to learn than all the Japanese characters.

As if Hiragana was not enough, they have Katakana for no good reason as far as I can see, and then there are thousands of Kanji!
