Basic features of Korean Language
The Korean language is spoken by about 80 million people as their first language. It belongs to the group of Altaic languages(controversial) together with Japanese, Ainu, and Mongolian, which were splitted one another several thousand years ago. Syntactically, Korean shares some common characteristics with these Altaic languages, while over 60% of its contemporary vocabulary came from Chinese. But native Korean vocabulary is essentially and widely used for daily basic communication.
