About Korean

Korean is the official language of both South Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) – combined population, around 73 million. It is also spoken in Korean communities in China, Japan, the USA and Central Asia. Although Korean has a reputation as a difficult language to learn, in fact, picking up the basics is relatively easy, especially in comparison with other Asian languages.
