Korean

 This page depicts several images written in Korean. The first items on this page show goods that we use commonly in America. These images could be used to ask students, "Do you know what this is?" What do you think the label says?" "How can we find out what it says?"

The alphabet may be used to decode some of the labels. Have students write common words in Korean. Bring in the comparable American goods and have students compare the two side-by-side.  

The Korean Alphabet

We learn the alphabet as a song. Why not have the students learn the alphabets of other languages using songs??? Below is a link to a video song of the Korean alphabet. This could be an activity for the students in your classroom. Why not learn a new alphabet every month? Practice it a few mornings a week. This one takes less than a minute! Also included here is a diagram of the Korean alphabet.
