How I Learned to Read Korean Using Chinese Characters in Gyeongbokgung Palace

As a lifestyle blogger, I'm always on the lookout for unique experiences that not only offer a glimpse into a different culture but also allow me to learn something new. I made an impromptu trip with my friend to hop onto a Winter Korea Ski Tour, we were also lucky to met with a knowledgeable guide who would teach us how to read the Korean language using Chinese characters along the way. 

The tour took us through the bustling city of Seoul, and one of the highlights was our visit to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Amidst the historical buildings and beautiful gardens, our guide showed us how to read Korean words and phrases using natural resources like sand. It was a fun and engaging way to learn a new language, and I was amazed at how quickly I was able to recognize and remember the characters.

Our guide was experienced and patient, providing detailed explanations and examples of how to read Korean using Chinese characters. I particularly enjoyed learning how to read Korean names, which can be difficult for non-native speakers due to their unique pronunciation. With the help of Chinese characters, however, it became much easier to understand. 


Overall, this experience was not only informative but also enjoyable. I do have more photos and video to share but they're all in my camera, gonna find sometime to slowly import all of them here... Whether you're planning a trip to Korea or simply interested in learning a new language, I highly recommend you to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace. It's a fantastic way to discover the beauty of Korea!
