Wiktionary is great for super-newbie learners of Hangul.

For example, see this question re: 기계 (gigye) : 기계 (gigye) ==> 機械, 器械, 奇計 (what else?)

What's another good Korean-to-English dictionary site for (hangul) super-newbie learners (who know English) ?

Is there something like Jisho for Japanese ?

Search result for 'gigye' Naver English-Korean Dictionary.

I don't even understand what this result (above) is showing, and it's not much use to me without the Chinese characters anyway. Thanks !

This result from endic.naver.com is better.

  • Thanks for splitting this question out. Why do you mention the search for (Romanised) 'gigye'? Are you looking for a dictionary where you can search for Romanised Korean words? Commented Oct 18, 2016 at 22:55
  • @topomorto the two never examples suggest they are probably looking for one with Hanja

  • It seems you know Japanese. Would a Korean-Japanese dictionary server better for you? After all not every Korean word has a corresponding Hanja form, so you can't solely rely on that.

  • Thank you for the suggestion. I immediately went and looked for such a Korean-Japanese dictionary on the net, but I couldn't find any. Maybe there'll be something within a few years. Thanks again! --

I recommend dic.impact.pe.kr it's pretty good and easy to understand.

The cool part is that it also searches for your input in translated sentences so you can figure out how a word is actually used.
