H5164: Intro to Korean Writing or The Coolest Writing System You Will Ever Meet in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Come learn about this super awesome, super logical alphabet! A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a great king of Korea thought “Gee, these Chinese characters just don’t work very well to write Korean.” He decided to fix this problem, and thus, Hangul was born. By the end of this class you’ll be able to write your name (and a great many other things) in Hangul, and we’ll also talk about some of the things that make Hangul so amazing.
