ABSTRACT

Sino-Korean words make almost 70% of Korean words. Chinese Characters are very different from Hangul (Korean alphabet system) in form and they are semantic symbols. Therefore Korean and foreign students are very likely to have difficulty in mastering the Sino-Korean characters. This paper aims at reviewing the problems of teaching Chinese characters to Koreans and foreigners in Korea, and proposing how to teach them effectively. For this purpose, we first look into the realities of the national system of Chinese characters’ education, and then suggest more effective instructions in teaching Chinese characters.
