Learning Useful Expressions

Posted on 15. Sep, 2014 by in Uncategorized

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

Famous Korean Idol Singer IU

Posted on 01. Sep, 2014 by in Uncategorized

One of the best Korean idol singers is IU and her Korean name is Lee, Jieun.  She became a very famous singer in 2012 because of her song “Good day”.  In the video, she has a mission to work as a bell boy, and she is also trying to speak English.  She says basic Korean greeting to a customer “안녕하십니까?/Hello?, 반갑습니다/nice to meet you, 감사합니다/thank you.” There are Korean subtitles, so it is good time to study Korean with your listening and reading skill. One of the funny situation is mentioning in the subtitles, let me translate for you: 손님보다먼저길안내해야하는데, 오히려손님따라가는아이유means IU supports to guide the customer to the room, but she is rather following him.  I want you to try to understand other things. If you have questions, please leave a message on the facebook. I will get back to you ASAP.
