Weekly Lesson #50 | Welcome Back!! [video]

안녕하세요!

I’m back!! Officially!! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been back now that the semester is over and I have taken a much needed rest I have returned. But I fear I was gone for a little too long because I completely forgot what direction I was going to go in next with the Weekly Lesson. I read through it all but I should’ve written down what I wanted to do now that we’ve reach post #50.

I decided to just start kinda fresh with a refresher by posting this video I found. A lot of times when you’re learning a new language, one of the easiest things is learning words that sound the same and mean the same in your native language. In this case, the video highlights words that sound the same and mean the same thing in English.

(some) Words in Video:

  1. ice cream
  2. kiss
  3. orange
  4. peach
  5. pen
  6. why
  7. radio
  8. game
  9. necktie
  10. note
  11. news
  12. dollar

I would post the rest but the video is about 5 minutes long. It’s very useful and since these are such common words this will be really good in helping you not only build a vocabulary but also when making simple sentences.

i.e.,

  • 피치 싫어. (pichi silh-eo) | “I don’t like peaches.”
  • 그는 노트 썼어요. (geuneun noteu sseoss-eoyo.)| “He wrote a note.”
  • 달러 있습니까? (dalleo issseubnikka?) | “Do you have a dollar?”

Okay, so without further ado, check out the video below for not only more words in Korean that sound like words in English but also the Korean translation of the words above!

뭐 찾아요? (mwo chaj-ayo?) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So a while back I made a post about the word 찾다 (chajda) which means, “to find.” Today I’m going to post questions that goes with that post because I heard this as a question recently and because I realized I haven’t been posting as many questions as I’ve been posting statements.

Phrase:

  • 뭐 찾아요? (mwo chaj-ayo?) | “What are you looking for?”

Other sentences

  • 이것을 찾아요? (igeos-eul chaj-ayo?) | “Are you looking for this?”
  • 찾았습니까? (chaj-assseubnikka?) | “Did you find it?”

언제 와요? (eonje wayo?)| [Word of the Day] + Sample Conversation

안녕하세요!

Sorry I’ve been in and out so much! I’m almost done with the semester but I finally finished one of my papers! I’ll be back full time very soon.

In the meantime… I thought I’d stop by and share a word for the day with you guys.

Phrase:

  • 언제 와요? (eonje wayo?) | “When are you coming?” or “When are you coming back?”

Sample Conversation:

  • Min-ho: 파티가 오늘 밤이야. | “The party is tonight.”
  • Joo-young:  오, 진짜? | “Oh, really?”
  • Min-ho: 네, 오고있어? | “Yes, are you coming?”
  • Joo-young: 어, 늦을거야. | “Yea, I’ll be late.”
  • Min-ho: 언제 와요? | “When are you coming?”

I hope Joo-young makes it on time…

See you guys next time!

Weekly Lesson #49 | Video on Conversations

안녕하세요!

I’m back briefly to share this video with you guys. I’m sorry that I’ve been gone for so long. It’s finals here for me at my university and so I’ve been trying to study and finish writing all my papers. (Almost done with them!) So I haven’t been able to create a new lesson for you. However, I found this video that I thought would be a really good video to help with starting a conversation in Korean and maintaining the conversation once you start it!

I’ll be back soon! My goal is to still be able to do the Word of the Day this week!
