Learn Korean Indirect Quotation #2 Posted by on Jul 22, 2015 in Uncategorized

Today, you will learn how to use second indirect quotation which is question/ask ‘냐고’ “V.S. + 냐고”. The best way to learn is reading lots of examples. For instance, he asked that I am a doctor/그는 제가 의사냐고 했어요/gu nun nae ga eui sa nya go haec eo yo. She asked that I am from D.C./ 그녀는 내가 디씨 출신이냐고 했어요/gu neo nun nae ga D.C. chul shin e nya go haec eo yo. Let’s make your own examples whatever you want to say and please read more examples below.

Jules: Is that Bob’s car? 저것이 밥의 차예요?

Steven: She asked if it is Bob’s car. (그녀는 or 줄스는) 저것이 밥의 차냐고 했어요.


Steven: Is the computer black color? 그 컴퓨터가 까만 색이에요?

Amy: He asked if the computer is black color. (그는 or 스티븐은) 그 컴퓨터가 까만 색이냐고 했어요.


Juliana: Is it church building?  그 빌딩이 교회예요?

Kathy: She asked if that building is a church. (그녀는 or 줄리아나는) 그 빌딩이 교회냐고 했어요.

To ask is 물어봤어요, but you can still use 했어요 in Korean.
