Hanja - resources, Japanese etc
By the way, since you plan to learn Japanese in the near future, you may find James W. Heisig's method (Remembering the Kanji) to be extremely useful in order to memorize the characters efficiently:
If you decide to use the Heisig method, I would recommend using it in conjunction with Kanji Koohii (http://kanji.koohii.com/) which is a website that allows you to review Heisig with online flashcards, community mnemonic hints, and SRS.
Hi wnint, these resources may be of use to you:
Two different Hangeul to Hanja converters:
Both of these take Hangeul text of your choice and produce "mixed text" containing Hanja. They will give you slightly different results. Keep in mind that they are not perfect, as there are many homophones in Korean and multiple ways to convert many of the Hangeul syllables into Hanja.
The Hanja Explorer is a unique tool that visually displays the connections between different Sino-Korean words. I found it helpful for finding groups of words that have Hanja in common with each other and visually displaying the links between words or word groups.
The information on Hanja Explorer is definitely not 100% accurate, so beware of errors. Also, I found that it was not particularly intuitive to use, so you may want to watch the tutorial video and use the "undo" button as if it were a "back" button.
Your First Hanja Guide: Learn Essential Chinese Characters Used In Korean
This is Talk to Me in Korean's textbook on learning Hanja. I haven't used it, but it might be helpful.
Further resources can be found in these Quora answers, including a link to the Naver Korean newspaper archives that include articles with mixed text:
Thank you for your thorough answers! I think using the converter (the second one looks pretty good I think) might be an option. Especially to bridge between easier contents and news articles like NNL that you and Imani linked.
Also thanks for the tip on Heisig’s book and the website. I initially wanted to do learn Japanese (L4) strictly via Korean (L3) but I think I’ll try to take the easiest way. Will check out the book asap.
You are welcome! Best of luck on your Korean and Japanese journeys!
I've never tried importing texts with Hanja into LingQ. Do you know if the system lets you click on Hanja words and make LingQs out of them?
Also, HanjaNews.com and the Dong-A Ilbo are some other sources of mixed text:
Didn't expect I would have this many resources a day later when I started this thread, haha! Thanks again.
Regarding the question, it appears to work perfectly. I imported two articles and both mixed (eg. 中업체) and pure Hanja (eg. 午後) are possible to LingQ. Translation (google translate I guess) works fine too, at least for these simple words.
Lots of great resources on this link. Donga Ilbo’s Hanja News and especially Naver’s News Library is really awesome! Definitely challenging for me, but I’ll import some articles this weekend for sure. Thank you!
There are flashcards on Anki and Memrise. There are a few textbooks as well on amazon.
I don't know any Korean resources like articles or readings that use Hanja. The LingQ founder, Steve referenced having a book that used hanja on one of his videos so I know they are out there somewhere.
Yup, that’s kind of what I’ve done so far. I’m at around 550 known hanja in the memrise course I’m working on. But I don’t think it will stick if I don’t couple it with reading…
