Learning Useful Phrase

Posted on 29. Sep, 2014 by in Uncategorized

Let’s learn more phrase to make your own sentences. You may want to ask where a product is when you go to a market.  I always was busy to live during my college for work and study; I had no time to spend at a grocery store.  When I had no idea where a product I wanted, I was so frustrating.  So, I had to ask any employee at the store.  I guess that you are possibly going to have the similar situation.  Let’s learn useful phrase here: “Where is (noun)?”/(noun) 어디에 있어요?/ eo de ae it eo yo?   You also need to learn some words below.

Fruit/과일/gwa il

Peach/복숭아/bok soong a

Watermelon/수박/soo bak

Yogurt/요거트/yo geo tue

Potato/감자/gam ja

Strawberry/딸기/ddal gi

Learning Useful Expressions

Usually after you learned greeting in Korean, the next step would be asking something “what is (it)/뭐예요/meo ae yo.” Through this question, you will memorize many kinds of words because you need to answer.  I usually teach loan words first, so my students can get used to Korean sound value.  For instance, It is a TV/티비예요/ti bi ae yo/, it is a computer/컴퓨터예요/ceom pue ter ae yo/, it is a monitor/모니터예요/mo ni ter ae yo.

Grammar point for 예요/이에요

Noun + 예요 is Noun to be: TV예요/it is TV.

You need to use 이에요 when there is ending consonant: it is a cup/컵이에요/cup e ae yo. “ㅂ” is ending consonant in cup/컵. So, you need to use 이에요 instead of 예요.

 

Let’s learn one more thing here: job/career is 직업/jic eop. 직업이 뭐예요?/what is your job/ jic eop e meo ae yo/.

경찰이에요/(I) am a police officer/kyung chal e ae yo/

회사원이에요/(I) am a company man/hae sa won e ae yo/

선생님이에요/(I) am a teacher/seon saeng nim e ae yo/

Learning Useful Expressions

One of the best ways to learn a foreign language is using authentic materials such as Korean drama, TV show, radio, magazine, etc. Also, many Koreans try to watch some American drama to learn English because they can see and learn a variety of expressions.  If you watch brand new Korean dramas, you also can learn new words (slang).  Through watching drama, you can learn when you can say some specific phrases in the right time, but also you can remember the phrases longer than just learning by text. There are many kinds of free Korean TV drama and shows on YouTube you can watch in English, I also think that you may have some DVDs with subtitles in Korean and English. I want to introduce famous Korean drama by the video below.  I hope that this helps you have some encouragement to learn about Korea culture and language.  If you want, please choose one Korean drama for yourself to learn Korean!

There are today useful expressions you can learn. Enjoy to study!

아니요, 잠깐만 기다리세요/a ni yo, jam kan man gee da li sae yo/no, please give me a moment

네, 먼저 가세요/nae, meon joe ka sae yo/yes, please go first

뒤따라 갈게요/dui dda la ga gi yo/I will go after you
