서행 (seohaeng) & 정지 (jeongji) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요와! (Annyeonghaseyo!)

Ok so today ends the week of directions. Hopefully I’ve gone over enough ways for you to effectively tell someone where you need to go or help them get where they need to go. I will officially start the new Grammar of the Week with things that look familiar. It’ll be another “conversational Korean” post.

This will be short. The two words today are related! I couldn’t decide which one to use so I just picked both.

서행 (seohaeng) : “go slow”

정지 (jeongji) : “stop”

Pretty simple. I won’t go into too much detail as there are so many different ways and reasons for why you would need to say either of these.

Examples:

  • 여기 정지하십시오. (yeogi jeongjihasibsio.) = “Please stop here.” | Please note that there is another way to say this as well.
  • 서행주세요. (seohaengjuseyo.) = “Please slow down.” | 천천히 (cheoncheonhi) could also be used depending on who you are speaking with as it is considered informal speech.

So that’s it for today! See you next week!

-월요일까지! (wol-yoilkkaji!)
