- 월요일 (wol-yoil) | Monday
- 오늘은 월요일 입니다. (oneul-eun wol-yoil ibnida.) | “Today is Monday.”
- 파티가 월요일에요? (patiga wol-yoil-eyo?) | “Is the party Monday?”
Okay, so I’m not sure if I told you guys that this was going to be a pretty long little part in the middle of the weekly lesson series but it is. Numbers are a big part of everyday conversation. We’re constantly talking about the time, how many, how much, etc. so it’s important to learn all this now.
Let’s get started!
- 인분 | servings
- 의 | possession
- 삼 인분 | three servings
- 삼 인분 의 케이크 | three servings of cake
- 나는 일인분의 커피를 원한다. | I want a cup of coffee.
Today’s focus is going to be on age, like asking how old someone is or even expressing how old you are.
Alright so that’s it for this week!
If you’ve been following the olympics, you may be aware of the current controversy with media outlets choosing to mispronounce Pyeongchang, i.e., “NBC Insists On Saying ‘Pyeongchang’ Incorrectly Because ‘It’s Cleaner’. I noticed they were saying it wrong and it was like an instant reflex to correct them each and every time in my head. It started driving me a little crazy so I had to mute the tv.
Now if you’re following this blog then you either have an idea how to say it properly, learning how to say it properly or can actually say it properly.
So to end the week I am asking you guys, how do you pronounce Pyeongchang?
