나도 만나서 반가워요 (nado mannaseo bangawoyo) | [Weekly Lesson] + video

안녕하세요!

I haven’t done a phrase in a while so I thought this would be a good one to start with. Since we all meet people on a regular basis, it’s good to know how to respond to people we just meet.

Let’s get started!

One person may say to you…

  • 안녕하세요! 만나서 반가워요. 저는 카리입니다. (annyeonghaseyo! mannaseo bangawoyo. jeoneun kaliibnida.) | “Hello, it’s nice to meet you. My name is Kari.”

How do you respond?

Well you could repeat back to them what they said verbatim and replace your name with theirs. Or, you could respond like this.

  • 나도 만나서 반가워요! 저는 (your name)입니다. (nado mannaseo bangawoyo! jeoneun (your name)ibnida.) | “It’s nice to meet you too! My name is___.”

It’s not a lot to continue a conversation but it is a good start. Andddd I found a video to help you out!

물론 (mullon)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So this is more of a repeat word. I’m pretty sure I’ve covered this in some way before. However, I wanted to combine it with some things we’ve done before.

Let’s get started!

Word:

  • 물론 (mullon) | “of course; certainly”

i.e.,

  • 물론 요리 할 수 ​​있습니다. (mullon yoli hal su ​​issseubnida.) | “Of course I can cook.”
  • 물론 당신은 좋은 가수입니다. (mullon dangsin-eun joh-eun gasu-ibnida.) | “Of course you’re a good singer.”

Some quick vocabulary from these examples:

  • 요리하다 (yoli-hada) | “to cook”
  • 가수 (gasu) | “singer”

 

멋있다 (meos-issda) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

멋있다 (meos-issda) | “to be cool”

  • found out today can also be used to mean “legit”
  • In English, “legit” is another way of saying “cool” or “awesome”

i.e.,

  • 그녀의 옷은 너무 멋지다! (geunyeoui os-eun neomu meosjida!) | “Her clothes are so cool.”
  • 와! 그는 너무 멋지다. (wa! geuneun neomu meosjida.) | “Wow! He’s so awesome.”
