Academician Kim Yong Hwang says:
“While studying the Korean language I have got the conclusion that it is a well-framed, excellent language.
Our pronunciation can express the sounds of words of any other countries and the grammar is also well-constructed. Vocabulary is also rich. Especially, it is possible to write any foreign languages with Korean letters.”
