Question about Korea, Republic Of

안녕하세요 여러분!

As I’m mastering reading and writing 한글 I would love to know why some letters are pronounced differently at the beginning of words unlike the middle or the end of them.

I’ve noticed that:
• “ㄱ” turns to “ㅋ”
• “ㅅ” turns to “ㅆ” (I think?)
• “ㅈ“ turns to “ㅊ”
• “ㄷ” turns to “ㅌ”

and so on—

Is there a specific rule here? and is there any other rules would you like to inform me about when it comes to pronunciations?

감사합니다!
