This website will explain Korean grammar patterns, Korean idioms, slangs, along with practical vocabulary words. This site will also thoroughly teach you how to read and write 한글, the Korean script, with many examples and even advanced consonant assimilation rules. The site was originally intended to explain everything in English, however as the majority of Korean language students these days are Japanese and Chinese, we encourage users to provide translations in both languages respectively.

Welcome to the Korean Wiki Project! This project is a collaborative effort to unify knowledge on the Korean language and to make the information easily accessible and relevant to anyone. First, it must be noted that this site is under major construction; A lot of the articles are incomplete and have only been created for future editing. One of the goals of this project is to provide the most accurate, in-depth information and translations for Korean grammar patterns and vocabulary words where other dictionaries and books fail. Another goal is to make all information on here simple and easy to understand. As more people contribute to this project, the information becomes more accurate and better explained. For more information on this project, see the [http://www.koreanwikiproject.com/about/ about] section.

|style="color:#000;"| <div id="mp-dyk">As with all good wikis, we need a number of good contributers, both non-native and native speakers alike. Non-native speakers, especially those who have taken Korean classes and own various textbooks, shouldn't shy away from contributing. However, with non-native speakers contributing, not all examples and sentences will come out correctly. There are always sentences that seem good, but still sound awkward to native speakers. This is where having native speakers contributing would be extremely helpful. If you want to start contributing now, [http://korean.bluesoju.com/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin&returnto=Main_Page| register now]. After creating an account, see the 'Getting Started' tab below for more helpful information.

A forum will be added so there can be discussions on standardization of this wiki. Also users in the future will be able to contribute their own skin. We also need some experienced wiki users with help modifying this wiki.

+
|-
+
|style="color:#000;"| <div id="mp-itn">As a student at the Language Education Institute at Seoul National University, I was learning a lot of extra grammar rule details not found in any of my other textbooks. Then at higher levels the books we used no longer had explanations in English, so I would rely on my other textbooks to find out the exact meaning of certain grammars. It was becoming a hassle to find the extra details in my notebook, as well as flipping through many books. I also found some books were providing more accurate translations than others, so I was looking through several books to see which explanation was the best.
+
  
With a wiki, not only could we thoroughly describe the grammar, but we wouldn't have to carry it around like a book and I'm able to access it anywhere via the internet. The goal is to unify information on the Korean language from all sources, as well as becoming the most accurate and thorough source for information on the Korean language. That goal can only be met with the right contributors to this wiki.

However we need current and former Sogang and Yonsei students to categorize grammar patterns for their respective text books. For example, if you see a grammar pattern that appeared in the level 1 book of the Sogang program, add [[Category:Sogang Level 1 Grammar]] or if there is a grammar pattern in Yonsei's level 3 grammar add [[Category:Yonsei Level 3 Grammar]] to the bottom of the particular grammar page (and so on). As an example here are the categories for SNU:
Welcome template

Causative form
