I really really wanted to do an Artist of the Week but I couldn’t really narrow down which artist I wanted to feature so instead I decided to post some new music here to make up for it!

Weekly Lesson #50 | Welcome Back!! [video]

안녕하세요!

I’m back!! Officially!! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been back now that the semester is over and I have taken a much needed rest I have returned. But I fear I was gone for a little too long because I completely forgot what direction I was going to go in next with the Weekly Lesson. I read through it all but I should’ve written down what I wanted to do now that we’ve reach post #50.

I decided to just start kinda fresh with a refresher by posting this video I found. A lot of times when you’re learning a new language, one of the easiest things is learning words that sound the same and mean the same in your native language. In this case, the video highlights words that sound the same and mean the same thing in English.

(some) Words in Video:

  1. ice cream
  2. kiss
  3. orange
  4. peach
  5. pen
  6. why
  7. radio
  8. game
  9. necktie
  10. note
  11. news
  12. dollar

I would post the rest but the video is about 5 minutes long. It’s very useful and since these are such common words this will be really good in helping you not only build a vocabulary but also when making simple sentences.

i.e.,

  • 피치 싫어. (pichi silh-eo) | “I don’t like peaches.”
  • 그는 노트 썼어요. (geuneun noteu sseoss-eoyo.)| “He wrote a note.”
  • 달러 있습니까? (dalleo issseubnikka?) | “Do you have a dollar?”

Okay, so without further ado, check out the video below for not only more words in Korean that sound like words in English but also the Korean translation of the words above!

오랜만이에요!

I’m finally done with classes for the semester. Thank you guys so much for being patient with me and hanging in there while I was working on my papers. I thought I could do both but it was definitely hard to do that. I will be back officially full time here next week.

Thanks again and see you soon!

뭐 찾아요? (mwo chaj-ayo?) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So a while back I made a post about the word 찾다 (chajda) which means, “to find.” Today I’m going to post questions that goes with that post because I heard this as a question recently and because I realized I haven’t been posting as many questions as I’ve been posting statements.

Phrase:

  • 뭐 찾아요? (mwo chaj-ayo?) | “What are you looking for?”

Other sentences

  • 이것을 찾아요? (igeos-eul chaj-ayo?) | “Are you looking for this?”
  • 찾았습니까? (chaj-assseubnikka?) | “Did you find it?”
