Korean is the official language of North Korea and South Korea and is an official language of the Yanbian Prefecture in China. Large groups of Korean speakers can also be found in Russia and the USA.

The majority of linguists consider Korean to be a language isolate, meaning that it is a natural language with no demonstrable genealogical relationship with other languages. However, others claim that it is a member of the Altaic language family, which includes Japanese and Mongolian. Modern Korean script is read left-to-right and top-to-bottom.

For native English speakers, Korean is considered one of the most difficult languages to learn. However, Korean is considerably easier to master for native speakers of certain other languages, such as Japanese.

Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, differences have naturally appeared in standard Korean between North and South Korea. These differences include variance in pronunciation, vocabulary and verb inflection. South Korea is currently among the world's twenty largest economies and is recognised as a key player in the Asian market. The Korean sport of Taekwondo (literally ‘the way of the foot and the hand’) has also had a global impact.
