그리고 and 고 pt. 1 (Connecting Sentences)| [Grammar of the Week]

안녕하세요!

We’ve talked about different ways to connect sentences in the past. The one that comes to mind is 하고  which, when added into a sentences, takes on the meaning of “and”. This week we’ll be focusing on 그리고 as well as 고. We’ve talked about 고 before too. Just like 하고 when added to a sentence it also takes on the meaning of “and”.

Let’s get started!

그리고 | “and then”/ “and”

  • used to connect two streams of thought
  • placed at the beginning of the second sentenc

Sentences can be about two independent things:

  • i.e.,
    • 그는 저녁식사 먹었어. 그리고 그녀는 물 마신. |  He ate dinner and she drank water.

-or-

Sentences can be a sequence of events.

  • i.e.,
    •  그녀는 저녁식사 먹었어. 그리고 영화를 봤다. | She ate dinner and then she watched a movie.

So this week, will look at ways to use 그리고 in a sentence and then next week we will revisit 고.
