Word:

  • 빨리회복하세요! (ppallihoeboghaseyo!)| “Get well soon!”

We are ending flu season and steadily approaching the dreaded allergy season. Yuck! So why not something to use during these hard times of sickness?

지금은 몇 시입니까? / 너는 몇 살입니까?| [Word of the Day] #Phrases

안녕하세요!

So I had to breakup that Weekly Lesson post so it wasn’t too all over the place. Kinda bummed out about it because I was so excited about combining the two posts but I’ll just save it for the review post coming up soon!

Let’s get started!

  • 지금은 몇 시입니까? (jigeum-eun myeoch siibnikka?) | “What time is it now?”
  • 너는 몇 살입니까? (neoneun myeoch sal-inikka?) | “How old are you?”

i.e., [Answers to the question]

  • 지금은 몇 시입니까? (jigeum-eun myeoch siibnikka?) | “What time is it now?”
    • 지금은 여덟 시입니다.  (jigeum-eun yeodeolb siibnida.) | “It is 8:00 now.”
    • 지금은 여덟 시 삼십분이에요. (jigeum-eun yeodeolb si samsibbun-ieyo.) | “It is 8:30.”
      • Notice how the hours are in Native Korean and the minutes are written in Sino-Korean. This is important to remember when telling time. I did not include time of day in this post but I will add it later.\
  • 너는 몇 살이니까? (neoneun myeoch sal-ibnikka?) | “How old are you?”
    • 나는 서른 살입니다. (naneun seoleun sal-ibnida.) | “I am 30 years old.”
    • 나는 서른둘 살입니다. (naneun seoleundul sal-ibnida.) | “I am 32 years old.”
      • Notice how here only Native Korean numbers are used to tell age. When telling your age, you only use Native Korean numbers.

Okay so that’s it for today!

오늘은 무슨 요일입니까? | [Weekly Lesson #18]

안녕하세요!

Okay so remember about a week ago when I had the Days of the Week as the WOTD. I don’t know if I told you that those posts would be coming back soon buuttt… they’re back! This post took me a little longer because initially I was doing time and days of the week but I thought that was overkill and it was time to move on to a new topic and so I’ll instead post the “What time is it?” as a WOTD.

Let’s get started!

Vocabulary:

  • 월요일 | Monday
  • 화요일 | Tuesday
  • 수요일 | Wednesday
  • 목요일 | Thursday
  • 금요일 | Friday
  • 토요일 | Saturday
  • 일요일 | Sunday

Grammar point:

  • 오늘은 무슨 요일입니까? | What day is it today?
    • For the purposes of this sentence, we use 오늘 since we are asking what day it is “today”. However, we can interchange that word with 내일 (tomorrow), 어제 (yesterday), or even if we’re asking about a specific thing like a party or, 파티.
  • 입니까 – 입니다 or 아닙니다
    • Remember, 입니까 is a question word and 입니다 and 아닙니다 are statement words that signify that something “is” or “is not.”

Examples:

  • 오늘은 무슨 요일입니까? | What day is it today?
    • 오늘은 수요일입니다. | Today is Wednesday.
  • 내일은 무슨 요일입니까? | What day is tomorrow?
    • 내일은 목요일입니다. | Tomorrow is Thursday.
  • 파티는 무슨 요일입니까? | What day is the party?
    • 파티는 토요일입니다. | The party is Saturday.
    • Bonus: 아니, 파티는 토요일이아닙니다. 금요일 밤이에요. | No, the party is not Saturday. It’s Friday night.

 

New Post Coming Soon!

안녕하세요!

I know my latest Weekly Lesson post is late. I haven’t forgotten to do it. I’m actually currently still working on it. I didn’t like my examples and so I’m reworking them to make them something that’s easier to follow and I’m also spell checking, etc.

I’m really sorry I’m late!

I’ll be uploading it tomorrow!
