< ㅅ vs. ㅆ pronunciation in Korean >.

There are two different Korean s's as well.

a plain and a tense ㅆ. .

In this case, though, the tense ㅆ sounds a little more like the English s than the plain one. The tense ㅆ in Korean is a just a bit more tensed, with a harsher hissing sound that is normal in English, and it has the familiar raised pitch of tense consonants. Try saying 싸 with a good tense ㅆ.

To pronounce a nice 'plain' or soft ㅅ, you might imagine there is an h sound before the ㅅ. Try to saying 사랑 in a breathy, romantic way, and your ㅅ will probably be about right.

  • 사 싸 / 소 쏘 / 설 썰
  • 삼 쌈 / 살 쌀 / 생 쌩
  • 산 싼 / 수 쑤 / 서 써


< Double consonant (ㅆsound) practice >.

  • 싸요 to be cheap - 귤이 싸요. the tangerine is cheap
  • 써요 to write/ to use - 나는 일기를 써요. I write in my diary
  • 싸워요. to fight - 왜 싸워요? why are you fighting?
  • 글씨 a character/ a letter/a handwriting - 권지용의 글씨가 예뻐요. GD's handwriting is pretty
  • 비싸요 to be expensive - 한국은 우유가 비싸요. A milk is expensive in Korea

Hi everyone. I am Helena Seo. I was an English tutor in Korea for three years and most of my students were middle and high schoolers. I then began my adventure to Australia as a Korean tutor. Initially, I have a few students and they were people who are full with passion in learning the Korean language and culture. Also, there are some students who would like to become a translator or interpreter in the future. Well, I am very happy with them and I had a great time with them as we get to increase our expertise on different cultures as well as getting to know about each other more! I am a friendly, responsible and patience tutor and I will try my best to keep your interest in studying Korean. It doesn’t matter if you are a total beginner or advance, you don’t need to worry as I will help you in improving your writing, reading, pronouncing, and vocabulary skills. As for the advance student, if you are more interested in elevating you’re listening and speaking skills, I can choose some of the specific topics based on your preference for discussion. For instance, the traditional Korean culture, entertaining industry, latest politic and social issues and many more! Besides, I can also help you in preparing for the Korean proficiency test (TOPIK exam). As an adage goes, ‘go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.’ I want you to be hardworking, positive, and challenging than me! Seeds do not grow in a day right? In order to let a seed blossom in to a beautiful flower, one must keep on nurturing it which somehow indicates we must have patience while we are in the process in learning. I will also tailor the suitable course for each individual depending on their learning criteria. Best regards, Helena Seo.
