Foreign Language Tip 2 #22 | Labels Everywhere!!

Have you ever walked into a kindergarten class or a daycare or pre-k classroom and noticed what is littering the walls and objects? There are labels! Labels everywhere! But why are they there? To help the children learn about objects around them.

You may ask, “Ummm… okay…?”

You can do the same thing! Right now, if you look around the area where you are sitting, you’ll notice that there are a lot of items and furniture that you can name without even thinking about it. So for every item or furniture, take a sticky note and write down what it means in Korean without the translation and then attach it to the object/furniture.

Ideas for Labels

In your living room:

  • Television
  • Sofa
  • Chair
  • Table
  • Window
  • Curtain
  • Rug
  • Floor
  • Fireplace

In your kitchen:

  • Sink
  • Counter
  • Stove/oven
  • Refrigerator
  • Plates
  • Glass
  • Silverware

These are just a few ideas for what you label in each room. Maybe you have specific items you want to label or maybe there are more items you’d like to add to the list, whatever the case, do it. It’ll help build your vocabulary and you’ll find that you actually recognize more things in Korean as a result of this.
