Are other resources really that bad?
Unfortunately, yes. But you don't have to take our word for it. To make our point, this is an example of free content taken from a well-known, popular, and earlier established platform for learning Korean online:
"Korean shares some similarities with both the Japanese and Chinese languages".
Vague, Inaccurate, and Unimporant:
Virtually all languages are similar to one another in terms of their typology linguistically speaking, and underlying grammatical principles common to all human language. Korean's word order is different from Chinese, the grammar is different from both Chinese and Japanese in key ways. In fact, Even English and Chinese word order are similar, and so is the lack of inflectional morphology, etc.
It can't really be that bad, can it? Yes, it can, and yes, it is. Click here if you would like to see more examples of just exactly what we mean.
