언제예요? (eonjeyeyo?) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

This is a post I found in my “archives of drafts” as I’m not referring to the posts that never got posted. I’ll post some of them and then I’ll just create new ones because I’m noticing a lot of these are really just review posts anyway.

___________________________________________________

I know we’ve talked about this before but I wanted to share it again since I have been doing a lot of review lately and sometimes we can forget things when we haven’t seen them recently.

Let’s get started!

So often times we talk about 언제예요 kinda in the past tense like, “when did you go?” However, we can use this to ask more specific questions too.

  • 파티를 언제예요? (patileul eonjeyeyo?) | “When is the party?”
  • 수업 언제예요? (sueob eonjeyeyo?) | “When is class?”

So even though these are just two examples of how it can be used, you can create more examples using your vocabulary!

Write in the comments below ways you can ask, “When is…?” in Korean!

나도 몰라요 (nado mollayo)

안녕하세요!

Today’s post is a bit of repetition and a reminder. We’re going to be talking about two things here so let’s get started!!

Phrase:

  • 나도 몰라요 (nado mollayo) | “I don’t know either”

Two points here:

  •  -도 (do)

This ending as we have discussed before means “to” Or “also.” However, in the context of this sentence, it can also mean “either.” For those of you who English isn’t your first language, “either” when used in a statement like the above can mean agreeing. It’s like saying of agreeing “me too.”

So since you are also agreeing that you don’t know then you would use 도.

  • 몰라요 (mollayo)

Comes from the verb 모르다 (moreuda) meaning “to not know”

Alright so that’s it!

 

같이 가요 “Go Together”| [Weekly Lesson]

안녕하세요!

So I’ve been working on this lesson for quite some time. I worked hard to make sure that it’s really short and super easy so that you can use it today if you wanted to. Based on the vocabulary we’ve already learned, let’s build a question and an answer! Also, no you aren’t experiencing déjà vu. This has been covered here before as a Word of the Day in the past but not as a Weekly Lesson.

Let’s get started!

같이 가요?

  • This is a phrase that has been used as a statement and a question in almost any drama or movie you may have seen. It can mean, “Let’s go together” without the question mark or “Do you want to go together?”
  • 같이 | together
  • 가요 | to go

So how can we use this to create a question? Well we’ll start with the vocabulary builder below based on words you already know.

Vocabulary:

  • 도서관 | library
  • 커피 | coffee
  • 저녁 | dinner
  • 가고 싶어요 | want to go

Questions:

  • 도서관에 같이 가고 싶어요? | “do you want to go to the library together?”
  • 같이 커피를 마실까요? | “Should we get coffee together?”
  • 같이 저녁을 먹을까요? | “Should we get dinner together?”

So now, based on your own vocabulary of places, drinks and food, you should be able to create your own sentences following the same format as the sample sentences.

Comment below what sentences you were able to create!
