Korean Alphabet – Korean Culture for Kids

The Korean alphabet, also known as Hangul, is the native alphabet of the Korean language. It was created by Sejong the Great during the Joseon Dynasty in 1443, and is now the official script of both South Korea and North Korea. There are 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels. Letters that have similar sounds also have similar shapes, which makes Hangul easier to learn than many other Asian alphabets.

Korea travel facts for kids, Korean culture for children, Everland

One of Korea‘s most famous places is truly magical for the young in years and the young at heart. Everland Resort is a theme park complete with a race track, zoo, and water park. Everland is home to the T Express. Measuring 5,838 feet in length, it is the longest wooden roller coaster on Planet Earth. Its 77 foot drop also makes it the steepest of the world’s coasters. The park has four other coasters, one with a speed of 52 miles per hour.

The Everland Speedway hosts many professional racing events. But what it may be most loved for is the opportunity for thrill seekers with no racing training to be race drivers for an hour or so.
