Korean is dead simple to learn to read, it is just an alphabet where each syllable is arranged into a character block. Problem is finding a good teacher or book cause they are usually terrible (-: Google translate is pretty terrible also with Korean.
A circle at the beginning of a syllable means the first letter is a vowel.
언어 is language in Korean. 영어 is English in Korean. Maybe that will help? haha
"ㅇ" plus "ㅓ" plus "ㄴ" equals 언 (the last syllable is written on the bottom, that is the only tricky part)
There is a circle because the first sound is a vowel, that vowel is "eo(어)" pronounced like awe, and final sound is "n(ㄴ)" so the character is "eon(언)", which sounds like the english word "on"
Good luck (-:
