This second part will mainly discuss the double consonant group. There’re five double consonants we need to know:
  1. ㄲ : ssang giyeuk (pronounced as /k/)
  2. ㄸ : ssang digeut (pronounced as /t/)
  3. ㅃ : ssang bieup (pronounced as /p/)
  4. ㅆ : ssang sieut (pronounced as /S/)
  5. ㅉ : ssang jieut (pronounced as /c/ or /ts/)
I know how confusing it is to find out some sounds may be represented by more than one alphabets, such as /k/ which might be represented by ㄱ or ㄲ or ㅋ. But why don’t we enjoy the confusion rather than complain about it? Let’s say  this is the art of learning Korean. My Korean tutor even admitted that he sometimes finds writing Korean words trickier than speaking them. And you may not believe it, but it’s true that he several times makes misspelling while writing on whiteboard for us. So don’t worry too much about it..It’s about the travel, rather than the destination 🙂
