It’s pretty important to recognize that when you are learning a language like Korean, Japanese, or Chinese that you are not only learning a new way of speaking – but also of writing.

The good news is that there are some great apps for Ipad/Iphone and Android devices that help you and your kids learn Hangul!
Here are 10 apps that we have downloaded, tested, and can recommend to you.
