1. Understanding the Basics: Korean double vowels are a combination of two vowels that are used to form a single syllable. The two vowels are always written together, without a space in between, and are pronounced as one sound. The most common double vowels in Korean are ㅐ (ae), ㅔ (e), ㅚ (oe), ㅟ (wi), ㅢ (ui), ㅙ (yae), ㅞ (we), and ㅝ (wo).
2. Pronunciation: When pronouncing double vowels, it’s important to remember that you should still pronounce each of the two vowels separately. For example, when saying the double vowel ㅐ (ae), you should pronounce it as “ah-eh”. Similarly, when saying ㅔ (e), you should pronounce it as “eh-eh”. This is true for all of the double vowels.
3. Practice: Practicing double vowels can be done in a few different ways. You can start by reading a Korean text aloud and focusing on the double vowels. Try to pronounce them correctly and to make sure that each vowel is pronounced separately. Another way to practice is to write out the double vowels and then practice saying them out loud.

You can start by reading a Korean text aloud and focusing on the double vowels. Try to pronounce them correctly and to make sure that each vowel is pronounced separately. Another way to practice is to write out the double vowels and then practice saying them out loud. In Korean there are basic vowels that you should take note of are the 10 basic vowels, these are ㅏ(a),ㅑ(ya),ㅓ(eo),ㅕ(yeo), ㅗ(o), ㅛ(yo), ㅜ(u), ㅠ(yu), ㅡ(eu), ㅣ(e).
In order to compose the double vowels, you would use a combination of these 10 basic vowels in order to compose of double vowels to create the 11 new double vowels, these are as above ㅐ(ae),ㅒ(yae), ㅔ(e), ㅖ(ye), ㅘ(wa), ㅙ(wae), ㅚ(oe), ㅝ(wo), ㅞ(weh), ㅟ(wui), ㅢ(ui).

The exception to the combinations of double vowels are ㅙ and ㅞ. These are combined by adding ㅗ to ㅐand ㅜ to ㅔ.
