For example, the word listen has a D, but you write it as listing. No. Has a K Salmon has an L yacht is not Yash or Yeah, it's got and good luck spelling the word constitutional. As you can tell, English is hard and Chinese is even harder. It has 50,000 unique characters, each describing one word. So for beginners, this looks impossible. But I just learned about a language that is different. It has the easiest alphabet in the world, and it's one you'll never be able to guess. It's the color free. In 500 years ago, Korean language used to be written in Chinese. Then one king said that this is too hard. No one is reading or writing anymore. So he came up with a new alphabet that you can learn change. One hour. Oh, my goodness. Instead of complicated Chinese letters, his alphabet looks like your mouth. When you say I am, your mouth looks like a rectangle. So this is the character, and when you say, Oh, your mouth is around. So this is Oh, and this is SG K out all based on your mouth and throat shape instead of 28 alphabets. There was only 24 instead off you are He is she is there was on Lee It is instead of silent letters. Now you right exactly what you say This is not what you see is exactly what you mean. No more crazy spellings. No more long words, no more crazy, weird characters. This is the hung goal, help of it. And it quickly became the official alphabet in Korea. That's how millions off Koreans started reading and writing more because the language became easier. And that's also how I was able to read Korean in less than an hour so I could walk down the street and read the signs in a language I never understood before. So much meat street insane. Don't get me wrong. The language itself is still very hard. How do you say, What's your name? It'll mean more year war. But writing and reading it has become incredibly easy. I love this alphabet I'm getting with locals now, one hushing *** because it is exactly what the world needs simpler ways to read simpler ways to write simpler ways to communicate. Language is supposed to break barriers, not to create them so we can finally share this world with every culture. See you next week.
