어디에 + 가다 (Basic Questions) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Okay so today we’re starting practical conversations. We’re talked about 어디에 plenty of times before in the past. And I’m sure you could google search different phrases using it, but let’s try making sentences with just the principles we know.

Introduction Sentences:

  • Typically this would be “where are you from?” however today we’re going to look at it as lead in sentences which are sentences that lead into a conversation.

i.e.,

  • 어디에 가요? (eodie gayo?) | “Where are you going?”
  • 어디에 갈까요? (eodie galkkayo?) | “Where should we go?”
  • 어디 갔니? ( eodi gassni?) | “Where did you go?”
  • 어디로 가고 싶니? (eodilo gago sipni?) | “Where do you want to go?”

So in the sentences above we’re focusing on 가다 and the different ways to conjugate it to create basic conversational sentences.

Key words:

  • | future tense
  • 까요 | present tense
  • | past tense
  • 고 싶니 | present tense + want

Even though this looks like something you’ve google before just think of it as something you can do on your own based on the principles you’ve learned like future, past, and present tense.

i.e.,

  • 그것이 어디 있니?(geugeos-i eodi issni?) | “Where is it?”
  • 어디에 있어? (eodie iss-eo?) or 어디야? (eodiya?) | “Where are you?”
  • 이것이 내가 어디에 본. (igeos-i naega eodie bon.) | “This is where I saw it.”

Okay so we’ll stop here. If I go too deep into this it’ll become a grammar lesson.

That’s all for today!

어디에 살아요? (eodi-e sal-ayo) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

In the theme of asking questions and learning phrases, I decided to go back to something familiar. We’re going back, way back, to the time when we asked “어디” and when we were learning location particles.

It’s important to go back to these things because… even though you’re not currently studying them, you still need to know them.

Let’s get started!

i.e.,

  • 어디에 살아요? (eodi-e sal-ayo) | “where do you live?”
  • 나 미국에 사세요. (na migug-e saseyo.) | “I live in America.”

There are really two words here that can be used, technically interchangeably. 살아요 and 사세요. They both can take on the meaning of, “to live” or “to stay”.

Okay so that’s it for today!

Quick note: If you’re looking for the Wednesday Kpop Update, it’ll be updapted probably this weekend. I can’t do it today unfortunately. Things came up so I’ll have to move the date but it is coming for sure!
