Tutorial on how to type in Korean.

It can be daunting at first, but don't be discouraged. The key is to remember that input method editors are smart. This is the hardest part: It is up to you put in spaces between things like 저는 and "김민수"입니다, but if you forget it's not incomprehensible and if you break up compound words it won't impede understanding at all. However, in English spacing i smore import ant than in korean. Korean letters are read according to predictable rules and writing 저 는 마 크입 니다 is still pronounced the same as 저는 마크입니다.

As you type, the engine will know whether you typed 좋았어 or 좋아써 because you are typing ㅈ ㅗ ㅎ ㅇ ㅏ ㅆ ㅇ ㅓ vs ㅈ ㅗ ㅎ ㅇ ㅏ ㅆ ㅓ. They both sound exactly the same, but as you type you will notice that the input method editor will instantly shift 받침 based on what you type next. When you get the hang of it it is rather qucik and painless.
