Learning months in Korean is super easy once you have learned Korean numbers.
The word for month in Korean is 월. To say a month of the year in Korean simply add the sino-Korean number for that month before the word 월. For example, January is the first month right? The Korean for number 1 is 일. So, January in Korean is 일+월 = 일월. Easy right?
This is the same for the other months of the year except June and October which are pronounced a little differently. June is the sixth month and 6 is 육 in Korean. But June is not 육월. June is 유월. And October is not 십월 but rather 시월.
