Android App for learning Hangul

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve been using a finger-tracing Hangul app to supplement my Rosetta Stone regimen. That app is fun for adults or kids (as seen below)!

This week I’ve been working my way through a new app called TenguGo Hangul. I really like this app! In fact, it’s probably a good example of how adults actually have some advantages over children when it comes to learning language. Not only does the app give a brief history of Hangul, it also explains helpful concepts like the relationship between letter shapes and pronunciation.

I’ve been confused by the different pronunciations presented by different apps and/or alphabet charts found online. For the same letter, some charts show a p sound where others show a b sound. Another letter is alternately described as t or d. TenguGo helps explain this. Also, it’s very difficult to distinguish between the “e” and “ae” sounds. It turns out it’s not just my ear, as seen in the screenshot below. I find these kinds of details very helpful, and would recommend this app to anyone trying to learn Korean.
