I'm fairly sure this question has been asked dozens of times but, since I just started learning Korean I'm very confused about the most appropriate way to look up pronunciation.
I went through the basics of Hangul and I can't seem to find any explanation anywhere to why "한" is said "han".
I tried translating "Korean" to Korean and it gave me "한국어". So, I tried to say it and my mouth gave something like "oan gugn eu". But Google says it "hangug-eo". I really don't understand this "han" start.
Where does the "ㅗ" go?
I know that google translate isn't a perfect tool for learning languages, far from it, but I'm fairly sure I had already noticed this problem in a korean speaker's speech on a youtube video ...
