Place + 하고| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Yesterday we looked at connecting people. You may have noticed that I haven’t added too much information with this and that’s because this week is serving a dual purpose. This first half of this is to refresh your memory and the second half is to introduce how to properly use 하고.

Let’s get started!

장소 | “place”

하고 | “and” (conversational)

i.e.,

  • 커피 숍 하고 커피 탁자 | “coffee shop and coffee table”
  • 공원 하고 동물원 | “park and zoo”
  • 내 집 하고 내 차 | “my house and my car”

Okay so I kinda combined places and things in a couple of these examples but you see how it can be used with both because again these are nouns and 하고 is used to connect two nouns.

That’s it for today!

Person + 하고| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So a noun is defined as being a “person, place or thing” right? Standard definition. In line with that, this week, we’re going to be using each one to express 하고. Today to start it off we’re looking at “person”!

Let’s get started!

사람 | person

하고 | “and” (conversational)

i.e.,

  • 그 사람이 하고 젠 | “that person and Jen”
  • 민호 하고 미나는 가게에 갔다. | “Min-ho and Mina went to the store.”

If you were to run this through google translate or any other translation site, it’ll probably tell you to use 와 or 과. I’ll explain that later but for now I’ll say that it’s not necessary because even though this is a written example, this example is designed to be something you would say.

We’ll get to that though.

That’s it for today!

Artist of the Week | Sik-K

So there’s this genre of music called “chill rap” and though Sik-K may not identify his music as that, it definitely falls into that category. I’m such a fan of the sound… when the rapper can sing. And Sik-K actually does have a pretty nice voice.

Sik-K has been around for a little while. He was originally associated with AOMG but was dropped and now he’s been signed to H1GHR MUSIC. If you watch Show Me The Money, then you know that he was on SMTM 4 in 2015. I can’t really find much else on him but if you are into rap and like the chill sound, this may be the artist you’ve been missing on your playlist!

하고, (이)랑, 과 / 와 (Nouns + “and”) informal/formal usage| [Grammar of the Week]

안녕하세요!

As much fun as I had doing those videos, I knew it was time to get back to the grammar lessons. I’ll probably be having a hard time keeping this up after this weekend since I’ll be in graduate school soon. However, I’m going to do my best to stay on top of this.

Also! Mark your calendars for September 7, 2017! If you haven’t heard already, duolingo will be releasing the Korean version on that date so make sure you download it when it’s available!

Let’s get started!

To keep in sync with the topic of “and” I decided to kind of return to this but also add to it as well. This lesson will be different than what you remember here before and we’re going to take each one at a time for the next three weeks because the distinctions are important.

하고, (이)랑, 과 / 와 are all particles and must be added to the end of a noun to connect it to another noun.

“And”

  • 하고 | conversational
  • (이)랑 | conversational
  • 과 / 와 | writing or formal speech

For now, we will be looking at 하고.  This is probably the one you will use more frequently when you’re talking to others, however, you still should be aware of the other ways to say “and”.

  • 하고 | conversational
    • i.e.,
      • 펜 하고 종이 | “pen and paper”

Examples for the rest of the week!
