The words “jang hyun seo” sound like something is completely wrong with my mouth. There is almost nothing that could be further from the truth. It is a beautiful word, but not for the reason we think it is.
The word comes from Korean, a language that has been spoken in the Korean Peninsula since ancient times. It literally means, “the man who can speak well.” In modern English, the best way to describe someone who is a very good speaker of English is that he or she can talk well. The word is generally used to describe a person who has a gift for English, such as a musician, filmmaker, or writer.
