    For me was definitely the pronuntiation of very similar consonants like “γ…‚” “γ…ƒ” “ㅍ” I don’t know how many times I wrote a word badly because of these…

      Oh yeah, that happens to me too. I still get corrected for the double consonants sometimes πŸ˜…

    For me, there are several factors…

    The grammar is hard because there is no definite rule. Mostly based on ‘neukkim’… Comparatively, I learnt Japanese for years, though their grammar is arguably more complex, there are definite rules for every grammar structure, and even conjugation words.

    There’s also ‘expectation of perfection’ and ‘level of immersion.’ Koreans somehow expect us to be PERFECT in speaking, writing, and everything. In addition, we are expected to do everything like a native Korean. For example, my friends who write their thesis in Korean told me that their writings are often criticized for not ‘sounding’ Korean enough (a friend even had a Korean re-writing her thesis to sound more Korean, which was depressing for her). They’re all practically fluent in Korean, though.

    Same as Annisa! Korean grammar is sooo hard. A lot of more advanced grammar points are based on feelings, opinions, or judgments of if the outcome was positive or negative. I am constantly finding myself using the wrong grammar and I’m not sure if I will ever be able to use them correctly.

    My brain cell is not working when in terms of learning their language. I really tried but it’s way more complicated for me to process. I also attempted to learn Japanese, I’d say I learned a bit than Korean, honestly.
