11 Rules of Korean Table Manners | [Word of the Day] (video)

안녕하세요!

I’m semi-back! Automatic posting here. I’m not entirely sure if I have enough posts for the week. But in my defense I did say I was taking break! Next week will be better.

Alright to end the week I’ve managed to find some way to come back to food!! Of course if you’re making friends in Korea (or with people in your local area who are Korean), you’ll more than likely being sharing meal or two with them. So why do you need this video?

Because… etiquette?

It’s useful! You’ll never know when knowing these things come in handy!

Top 25 Korean Phrases | [Word of the Day] (video)

안녕하세요!

Okay so I’m not sure if this worked but if you’re seeing it then… “Yay! It worked!” Had to automatically publish posts for the week so don’t mind me just strolling through…

Okay, so let me first start by saying that I wish I had a video like this when I was first starting out! Just letting you know, these phrases are indeed informal and she makes note of that in the very beginning. We’ve talked about everything in this video before however, she explains more when/where you can use these phrases and she really breaks down how to say the words and has additional examples for each one.

“Speak Korean Like Natives?!” | [Word of the Day] (video)

안녕하세요!

So this week I’m taking break you guys! I’ve been trying really hard to balance everything but mentally I just need an extra week to gather myself. I have a presentation and a lot of catching up to do in one of my classes so this week.

But! You guys already know that just because I take a break doesn’t mean I’m not looking out for you! I found videos to kinda fill in the gaps while I’m gone. I really thought they were super helpful and I hope you guys find them useful as well.

First video! Pronunciation! It is sooooo super important that you practice your pronunciation in Korean as you learn. You don’t want to accidentally say things wrong and ultimately be misunderstood because nobody can understand what you’re saying. This video is very good at showing how to do this so well you’ll even convince your family and friends.

Time and Date | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Alright, so again we’re adding more to the previous two days!

Let’s get started!

Quick review:

  • It’s actually really easy to remember the months of the year. For starters, you need to know the first 12 numbers in the Sino-Korean numbering system. And then all you need to remember is 월 (wol), “month”.
  • Next, “What date is it?”
    • 뭐 월 며칠이에요? (mwo wol myeochil-ieyo?)
    • 며칠 (myeochil) | “which day”/”what date”
  • Same as with the months. Remember the Sino-Korean numbers (1-31) and remember that 일 is “day.”
    • [25일 | 25th]

So we’re going to get even more specific today when telling the date to something.

Remember the days of the week?

i.e.,

  • 12월[month] 5일[day] 금요일입니다. (12 wol 5 il geum-yoil-ibnida.) | “It’s Friday, December 5th.”

But maybe, I want to tell the time too.

  • 오후 1시 12 월 5 일 금요일입니다. (ohu 1si 12 wol 5 il geum-yoil-ibnida.) | “It’s Friday, December 5th at 1 pm.”

This may be a bit confusing because we are combining two numbering systems into one sentence, so I added a video at the end for a quick reminder or additional help if you need it.

Just remember Native Korean (1-12) | hours

Sino-Korean | Date and minutes
