So I don’t really know how I’ll work this into a week-long activity but I will try. This is the post of many that I’ve wanting to share for a very long time! We’ll be introducing vocabulary words again all this week. Eventually, I would like to start adding in paragraphs for short reading comprehension activities for some of you who are a bit more advanced and looking for a challenge.
For now, let’s get started!
We’ve talk about different way to greet people in Korean before, but one of the ways that I’m going to show you is a way that you’re familiar with how to use in it’s technical form but you’re probably not using it in this manner.
어디 가세요? | “Where are you going?”
- Asking where someone is headed
- How to use:
- 어디 가? | eodi ga?
- Answer doesn’t actually have to say where you’re going, there’s no real pressure to be specific.
- Similar to saying, “Hey, what’s up?” in English
- Typical responses:
- Where you’re going
- (ong, eodi jom)
- 어디 가요? | eodi gayo?
- 어디 가세요? | eodi gaseyo
Scenario | Friends (Hyuna and Mina) passing each other in the mall
Mina: 현아 어디 가? | Hyuna! Eodi ga?
Hyuna: 아, 미나! 난 집에 가. | Ah, Mina! I’m going home.
Mina: 아, 그래? | Oh, really?
Hyuna: 네, 잘 가! | Yes, I’ll see you later.
This week, I’ll be adding a new vocabulary word and based on the word create different scenarios as examples.
