Lol, maybe, but I intend to be a linguisist, so it's normal with me!XD

You're focusing too much on what the terms for pronouncing it is and not enough on just listening and imitating. It took me a very long time to grasp the pronunciation, but I have it now. The consonants took a little time, but I mainly struggled with the vowels ae and eo. You can definately understand it^^
I mean, if the most I can get out of my boyfriend is "Ah.... kinda like this *speaks fast in Korean* umm.... maybe I dunno", then you'll do great!XD

*pat pats* It's okay, you can learn it one day if you wish and I don't think you'll have much problem at all once I get my system known :3
