You've learned?
Is Korean easier? Is it similar?

Little Germany....) Sounds weird.
I didn't know that Milutinovic was/is in China, he had to be their national coach or something...
I think he is a record holder...he went to WC with 3 or 4 different national teams.
After all, what the letters mean is not the first thing to be concerned about when they are doing this, I think.

Btw, Nole's name transcribed in Korean "노박 조코비치"
노-No / 박-vak / 조-Djo / 코-ko / 비-vi / 치-c

I've heard Korean isn't easy for foreigners to learn, but I'm almost sure it's still a lot easier than Chinese which has four intonations as well to make it even more complicated.

Thank you!
