An excellent online source for anyone interested in learning Korean language. A collection of Naver dictionaries lists all kinds of dictionaries to choose from. A very useful feature is the κ΅μ΄μ¬μ (a dictionary that explains Korean words in Korean) and the λ°±κ³Όμ¬μ (not only explains the words' meanings, but also teaches you about culture, history etc related to the word). For more advanced learners the νμμ¬μ would be very helpful since it allows you to memorize the meaning of generally two-character words through understanding the meaning of the two components, which makes the process of expanding one's vocabulary much easier.
