ABOUT MKN


Annyeong! I am Jaebeom and welcome to My Korean Notebook- your daily dose of Korean language. If you are fed up with textbook style language learning, it's time to switch to real-life language patterns that focus on nuance. This blog is designed to help you think the Korean way because Korean is spoken the way Koreans think, not the way you think. People don’t realize this when learning Korean. That's why even after years of learning grammar, they keep on making mistakes and end up sounding awkward and  unnatural because they based what they say on their mother tongue. Well, basic sentences can be formed similarly, but as you go deeper into the language, it's just impossible to translate everything literally making it hard to express oneself. As people say, there are many ways to kill a dog and so does expressing yourself in Korean. There are various ways to say one thing which can be subtle at times. Moreover, a certain pattern may give off a totally different nuance when used as a statement and a question. A small change in the verb-ending will change the meaning of the sentence dramatically. Hence, this blog came to life to help you explore the uniqueness of Korean language. Enjoy over 600 Korean sentence patterns and their hidden nuances.

I would also like to apologize for locking the notes as I discovered someone copied my work somewhere without my permission or proper credit at least. It is truly disheartening on my part. On the other hand, you can learn one note a day. Follow 'My Korean Notebook' on Facebook, HelloTalk, and Kakao Talk.
