Korean is one of the world’s oldest living languages, and its origins are is as obscure as the origin of the Korean people. Nineteenth Century Western scholars proposed a number of theories that linked the Korean language with Ural-Altaic, Japanese, Chinese, Tibetan, Dravidian Ainu, Indo-European and other languages. Korean is most likely a distant relative of the Ural-Altaic family of languages which includes such diverse languages as Mongolian, Finnish, and Hungarian.
Linguistically, Korean is unrelated to Chinese and is similar to, but distinct from Japanese. Early historical records indicate that at the dawn of the Christian era, two groups of languages were spoken in Manchuria and on the Korean Peninsula: the Northern or Puyo group and the southern or Han group. During the 7th Century, when the kingdom of Silla conquered the kingdoms of Paekche in southwest Korea and Koguryo in the north, the Silla dialect became the dominant language on the peninsula.
FEW good reasons to learn a new language
TO BE OR NOT TO BE (BILINGUAL)?
“Worthy of the “golden patience” trophy for good humor and creativity when facing student’s difficulties. Very competent in teaching, my teacher brings the beauty and the richness of the French language through historical and current themes (he is interested in everything!) Focused on the interest of the student and on activities that encourage to understand not only the rules of the language and the meaning of the words, but also the culture of which they are part. Learning the French language gave me a new perspective of the world and France.”
