I stumbled on a web series that I wish I had known about a long time ago when I first started learning Korean. This is literally one of the most helpful series I have watched in a long time.
However, I’m not posting those today! I’ll post those videos this week. Because 1) I was going to do another Grammar lesson but to be honest, I really couldn’t think of anything that I haven’t already done! I was working on a whole post and got all the way to the end when I realized it was the exact same thing I did about three weeks ago! And 2) I really do like posting videos. I’m not sure if you guys figured that out yet but I love finding videos and sharing them with you guys!
Let me know if that’s super annoying and you’d prefer if I didn’t do that in the comments and I’ll definitely limit the videos I share.
For now… I’ll share this video that is basically asking general direction questions. I wanted to go over this before (and to be honest I think I already did a couple of times I can’t even remember) hopefully this is something new. I really hope that this is something new!
Not only does she say the phrase and tell you what it means but she breaks down the pronunciation extremely well.
*knock knock* Is anybody there?
I’m back you guys! It’s been about two weeks for me and maybe about one week for you guys. I’m caught up-ish in my class work but I couldn’t go another week not saying anything. I haven’t done a whole whole lot of prepping for this week. Maybe I should’ve but I figured I should post something right?
Let’s get started!
This week, we’re talking about 거예요 which is basically more questions but I also wanted to talk a little bit about possessive nouns to because I told you guys about 나의, 너의, 우리 but there are only words and ways to classify something that belongs to someone.
- 그 사람의 | that person’s (can also mean “his”)
- 그분의 | his
- 그 녀의 | her
- 어머니 거예요 | “his/her/my/your” mother’s
Okay, that’s just something I wanted to mention really quickly. We’ll be looking at that in examples more later.
Okay so 거예요… I was convinced that I had talked about this before but apparently not! I’m really disappointed in my actions there. So let’s talk about it now! Really quick and super easy!
…거예요? | asking someone if you or “we” are doing something
- 책을 읽는 거예요? (책을 읽는 거예요?) | “Are you reading the book?”
Or. Adding a possessive noun.
- 나의 포도를 먹는 거예요? (naui podoleul meogneun geoyeyo?) | “Are you eating my grapes?”
We’ll stop here and look at more examples this week!
I’m semi-back! Automatic posting here. I’m not entirely sure if I have enough posts for the week. But in my defense I did say I was taking break! Next week will be better.
Alright to end the week I’ve managed to find some way to come back to food!! Of course if you’re making friends in Korea (or with people in your local area who are Korean), you’ll more than likely being sharing meal or two with them. So why do you need this video?
It’s useful! You’ll never know when knowing these things come in handy!
Okay so I’m not sure if this worked but if you’re seeing it then… “Yay! It worked!” Had to automatically publish posts for the week so don’t mind me just strolling through…
Okay, so let me first start by saying that I wish I had a video like this when I was first starting out! Just letting you know, these phrases are indeed informal and she makes note of that in the very beginning. We’ve talked about everything in this video before however, she explains more when/where you can use these phrases and she really breaks down how to say the words and has additional examples for each one.
