Final Thesis: Speaking in Korean for very Beginners





Competitive Analysis


They have lots of categories but contents are not enough. Each web page has just 2 or 3 paragraphs, so it (each page) doesn’t go into details. This web page doesn’t need many categories, just a few categories, or it needs lots of information about each section. The user can’t get enough information about Korean Language.


This web page has lots of information than, but it covers a lot of ground about Korea, not just Korean language. In conclusion, this web page has so many categories, and it is too weak to get information. Each section has only one contents page. This web site is just connect to other URLs.


This web page has many flash games for Korean language, but these are so simple games. If you don’t know Korean language at all, you can’t do these games. These games are difficult for very beginners. For example, if you want to play Korean number games, you can count numbers using Korean language. In my opinion, people are not interested in this web site’s games because contents and layout designs are not good.


This web site has lots of information about Korean Language. Each Part is well organized. Each vocabulary page has some words but you don't get information how to use and pronounce correctly. In my opinion, each word has to have a pronounce button and listen to it.
