Learn Korean

Exploring Asia is probably going to involve learning a new alphabet and Korean is no exception. The Korean alphabet was designed by one of its kings to help improve his population's literacy. It's not that similar to other languages, except for a slight simlarity to Japanese in the grammar system, but uTalk will get you learning the alphabet and making friends in no time!§
