Learn Korean at the TUM Language Center


Korean is spoken by about 80 million people worldwide. The unique Korean writing system, Hangul, consists of 24 letters. Hangul was developed on the order of King Sejong in 1443, and it is easily learned becuause of its logical and clear syllable structure. In 1997 Hangul was recognized by UNESCO as a "Memory of the World."
