Have you ever tried using Naver, the most popular search engine in Korea?
Naver (Hangul: 네이버) is by far the most popular search portal in South Korea, with a market share of over 70%, compared to 2% of Google.Naver was launched in June 1999 by ex-Samsung employees, the first portal in Korea that used its own proprietary search engine. (Info by Wikipedia)
Naver is like what Google is to us and like what Baidu is to Chinese. Korean prefer Naver than Google. Since I am still crawling to read Hangul hence ‘Naver is never’ my favourite search engine..hehehe. My host’s children use Naver to play games or read manhwa (manga in korean) everytime after school.
At one time, I was looking behind Haein’s shoulder to check at a game she was playing in junior Naver. Yes…there is a junior Naver. ^^ With Haein and Hojin’s help, I found a few games which could help me learn Korean better. The games are primarily for Korean children to brush up their English but I think it works for me too and I hope it will help others learning Korean as well.
