    ㄱ - A 'g' sound as in gossip, gargle, and green

    ㅅ - A 's' sound as in skip, screech, and scar

    ㅃ - More emphasis, almost makes a 'p' sound (as in popcorn), but stays within the limits of the 'b' sound. A 'b~p' sound hybrid?

    ㅉ - More emphasis, almost makes a 'ch' sound (as in chicken), but stays within the limits of the 'j' sound. A 'j~ch' sound hybrid?

    ㄸ - More emphasis. I.e. pronounce 'duck' (this is ㄷ) then make it sound it like 'dduk' (this is ㄸ). Speed up the pronounciation basically.

    ㄲ - More emphasis, almost makes a 'k' sound (as in kite), but stays within the limits of the 'g' sound. A 'g~k' sound hybrid?

    ㅆ - More emphasis, almost makes a 't' sound (as in tea). A good example of the ㅆ sound would be 'tsete fly'
    Kinda misleading tbh. Don't try to learn korean from romanisation :P my advice. Korean romanization puts the volews in a sonar(term) state i.e. P becomes B, Ch becomes J, K becomes G and so on for ease of use, tho it's horridly incorrect.For anyone that's intrested:

    ㅂ- soft/normal P, ㅃ- hard P, ㅍ- Ph sound (try to say Plain, but put a slight H between P and L)
    ㅈ- soft/normal Ch, ㅉ- hard Ch, ㅊ- Ch-h sound(try to say Child, but put a slight H between H and I)
    For ㄷ & ㄱ the same applies.
    ㅅ-sh sound(shout, shit, shut up etc.), ㅆ- emphasized Sh( hard Sh)

    ㅂ is pronounced P in the start of a word or between soundless letters(p,k,t,s etc) and B when between sonar elements( A,I,O,E,N,L,R,M etc). Same goes for ㅈ, ㄷ and ㄱ .

    Bored with korean grammar yet? xD

    All of these "it sounds like..." isn't really the best way to learn Korean.
    and that's pronunciation not grammar

    If you're serious about wanting to learn some very basic Korean, head over to here:
    http://korean.sogang.ac.kr/

    This site is from a Korean university. It's a completely free online Korean course which includes actual audio files from a native speaker.

    It works in Firefox, but I did notice one or two oddities. If you have any trouble, load it in Internet Explorer.

    If you do not wish to write korean using your own keyboard you can also use this website
    (http://www.wandel.person.dk/korean.html)
    to visually put the consonants and vowels together.
