My korean is really horrible. ^^; 안녕하세요 is really the only thing I can say.
But what are some basic korean words I could say in a basic conversation?

ex: hello, thanks, goodbye, wait, what, who.. small words.
한 글 please?

Or sites would be fine too!


Also could someone explain how ㅂ is supposed to sound?

You can say an informal goodbye by saying 안녕! That doubles as an informal hello. There are two ways to formally say goodbye (to my knowledge anyway) but they're pretty long. 안녕히 게세요 if you're leaving someone's place, or 안녕히 가세요 for someone leaving your place.

Wait - 기다려 (informal), 기다려 주세요 (formal, there are lots of ways to say this)

Who are you (or who is it)?- 누구야? or 누구니? (informal), 누구세요? (formal)

You've got the formal way down to say thank you. Here's the informal: 고마워 or 고맙다

What? - 뭐? or 뭐야?! (this one mean's more "what is it?" but can double as a surprised WHAT?!, both are informal) 뭐에요? for the formal I think, I'll have to get back to you on that one, it's been way too long since I've had a good convo in Korean.

I also think the "ㅂ" sounds like the American "b," but my boyfriend (who isn't Korean) says it sounds like a soft "p" sometimes, especially when spoken quickly (but I still say it sounds like a b :P) I might have some spelling errors >.< (I'm great at speaking and reading, but writing or typing is pretty difficult) so I'm sorry if I do, I'll check on that with my mom and sister later to see if they are error free. But as far as saying them they should sound right. Hope this helps!

Hehe thanks! ^^ My hangul is really really bad so I make out like most of the consanants and then forget what the vowels look like. T_T Gotta study up on that.

((This thread might be already dead; I don't know. But I'm answering for the heck of it. ^^

Well, I can't write the symbol due to this monolingual keyboard, as I have already stated in two other forums. -.-''

But still. I'll just use ♥ instead. It can sound like a very subtle 'p' at the end of a word, like 'sap' and 'tip' and 'YuKandawillfrickin'killyouifyoudon'tshutup'.

Yeah... And I can't explain to you what it sounds like at the beginning of or the middle of any other words, seeing as I don't know you in reality and cannot demonstrate. And it's hard to describe... sorry. ♪))
