이어폰 / 헤드폰 | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

I may have ordered some new headphones so maybe that’s why this word is on my mind. I added both depending on which ones you use or see someone using.

Word:

  • 이어폰 / 헤드폰 (ieopon / hedeupon) | “earphone” / “headphone”

i.e.,

  • 새 헤드폰 있습니까? (sae hedeupon issseubnikka?) | “Do you have new headphones?”
  • 누가 헤드폰 가지고 있습니까? (nuga hedeupon gajigo issseubnikka?) | “Who has headphones?”
  • 너의 헤드폰 입니까? (neoui hedeupon ibnikka?) | “Are these your headphones?”

…어때요?| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

…어때요?

So I found this post in my drafts and I wasn’t sure if I may have posted this before or if I forgot to post this for some reason. I searched for it and didn’t see it anywhere on here so I’m guessing I didn’t post it.

But if I did post this and just couldn’t find it, this is the updated version. 

…어때요? | derived from 어떻다 (eotteota)

  • “(to be) in what state; (to be) how”
  • i.e.,
    • “How about…(x)?” / “How is… (x)?” / “What about… (x)?”

Let’s look at some examples.

  • 공부하는 어때요? (gongbuhaneun eottaeyo?) | “How about studying?”
  • 날씨가 어때요? (nalssiga eottaeyo) | “How is the weather?”
  • 피자 어때요? (pija eottaeyo?) | “How about pizza?”
    • In response to: 뭐 먹고 싶니? (mwo meoggo sipni?) | “What do you want to eat?”

Weekly Lesson #30 | Review: Elementary Korean – Classroom Style {video}

안녕하세요!

Have any of you ever taken a class in foreign language before? Like Korean? It’s a bit of a challenge to learn Korean when you’re still reading and learning through English. So, to kinda help you as you progress, I found this video that’s classroom style and shows you how you would learn Korean if you were enrolled in a class.

Since I’ve been procrastinating on actually writing a review, I decided to share this video instead because it reviews concepts but it also gives actual conversations. I searched a lot to find a video that includes a lot of the vocabulary and lessons that we’ve gone over in the Weekly Lesson series so it’s as helpful as possible.

It’s always good to have a review!

 

Next week we will move on to a new lesson!
