Inspired by some interviews with polyglots and a story from a Korean friend, who says he mastered Japanese within a month, I decided to learn Korean!
Actually, I have no plan to use it, but I just want to see if it’s easier to learn a similar language than it is to learn more distant languages, like European ones.
I hear Japanese and Korean have many similar words and that their word order is the same. Although it will take some time to learn a new alphabet,
these features probably make it easier for Japanese people to learn Korean, and vice versa.
It took me about five or six months to get my Spanish to a daily conversational level.
How will things go with Korean?
I’m curious! 🙂
