공원/동물원 + -고 (gong-won/dongmul-won)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Alright so to end this week I decided to do a sentence that is not just about “I” but about “we” using some new vocabulary. I’m preparing for the new vocabulary list each week to go with the Grammar of the Week.

Let’s get stated!

공원 | park

동물원 | zoo

i.e.,

  • 우리는 공원고 동물원에 갈거야. (ulineun gong-wongo dongmul-won-e galgeoya.) | “We’re going to park and the zoo.”

That’s it for this week!

접시를 씻었다 + -고 (jeobsileul ssis-eossda)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

I guess this is just a bit of household chores again like last week. We used this before so I won’t do extra sentences on it. Just wanted to show how it can be used again using -고.

Let’s get started!

접시를 씻었다 | washed dishes

i.e.,

  • 나는 요리를하고 접시를 씻었다. (naneun yolileulhago jeobsileul ssis-eossda.) | “I cooked and washed dishes.”

That’s it for today!

친구들 + -고 (chingu-deul)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Since this isn’t a brand new topic, this week I will stick to a one sentence max. I don’t want to keep dragging out something that we all already know. I just wanted to use this week to add to it.

친구들 | friends

Let’s get started!

  • 나는 친구들을 만났고 영화를 보았다. (naneun chingudeul-eul mannassgo yeonghwaleul boassda.) | “I met friends and watched a movie.”
    • [technically insinuates that you watched a movie with your friends.]

That’s it for today!

그리고 AND 고 pt. 2 (Connecting Sentences) | Grammar of the Week

안녕하세요!

Alright so last week we focused on 그리고. And just as a quick refresher:

그리고 | “and then”/ “and”

  • used to connect two streams of thought
  • placed at the beginning of the second sentence

Today we are going to be looking at -고. Even though this isn’t a new topic here, today is all about clarification, correcting, and adding to anything that I may have missed when I first talked about using this to connect sentences.

Let’s get started!

-고

  • attached to the end of a verb or adjective
  • combines two thoughts into one sentence

i.e.,

  • 음악을 듣고 잡지를 읽었다. (eum-ag-eul deudgo jabjileul ilg-eossda.) | I listened to music and read a magazine.

So you can see this is different than how we would’ve phrased this last week using 그리고, which would’ve come before “read a magazine.” But are technically correct, however we want to combine the two thoughts into one sentence.

So this week we will continue to look at various examples on how we can create a sentence using -고.
