Sorry for the late post. It is with sadness that I say I have caught the flu. I’m a little out of it right now but I’m going to try to keep the posts as up to date as possible.
- 챔피언 (chaempieon) | “champion”
- 스키어는 챔피언입니다. (seukieoneun chaempieon-ibnida.) | “The skier is the champion.”
- Pyeongchang Olympics example.
- 그녀 이겼다. 그 여자 챔피언입니다. (geunyeo igyeossda. geu yeoja chaempieon-ibnida.) | “She won. She’s the champion.”
After last week’s lesson, you may have been wondering where I was going with this with all the numbers (that you more than likely already know) and dates (that you probably already know). “I’m ready to learn something new!!”
Okay. Okay. We’re getting there. But this is all about building and reinforcing what you already know because believe it or not… numbers are kinda hard. Well at least to me they are.
Okay, I’ll stop talking. Let’s get started!!
- Numbers |Sino-Korean
- 일 | day
- 월 | month
Today, we’re going to be a bit simpler and start with days and dates.
Let’s look at some examples:
- 이 월 | February
- 삼 일 | 3 days or 3rd day
- 칠 월 구 일 | July 9th
This week, we’re going to be looking at something a little different from this. Using what you already know about Sino-Korean numbers, we’re just going to add to that.
- 인분 | servings
- 의 | possession
- 삼 인분 | three servings
- 삼 인분 의 케이크 | three servings of cake
- 칠 인분 | seven servings
- 칠 인분 의 차 | seven servings of tea
- 나는 일인분의 커피를 원한다. | I want a cup of coffee.
I decided to end the week with a random work instead of just continuing on with the larger numbers and money. We’ll get back to that soon enough.
- 차를 차고 안에 있습니다. (chaleul chago an-e issseubnida.) | “The car is in the garage.”
- 신발 차고 안에 있습니까? (sinbal chago an-e issseubnikka?) | “Are the shoes in the garage?”
