Let’s have a Korean conversation: Part 1 Posted by Linda on Jun 25, 2013 in Culture, Grammar, Korean Language, Pronunciation, Uncategorized, Vocabulary
Learning a language should be collaborative and fun! Many of you have been chatting with me on KakaoTalk (lindasauce), and I am very happy to have met many new Korean language learners! And as always, you are welcome to send a tweet or post on our Facebook account any questions you may have. I will try to answer all of your questions in a timely manner. Many of your KakaoTalk requests are for translations and correct pronunciation of words and/or phrases, so this post will include another conversational podcast.
Let’s have a Korean conversation!
How are you feeling?
Our friend Aein Hope of OkiTokki.com, creates positive & eco-friendly art about Korean culture and language. One of her posters (above) illustrates 16 emotions in Korean and English. Which emotion is your favorite? : )
Here is our short, 9 minute podcast: Let’s have a Korean conversation! How are you feeling? We also chat about some of your Twitter questions (e.g., “What’s the best way to say the word “cute” in Korean?“)
Some key points from our podcast:
- Koreans don’t usually ask, “How are you feeling today?“; they usually ask, “How are you feeling now?“
- Koreans don’t use the word “mischievous” as a feeling or emotion.
- Koreans don’t use the word “nervous” as a feeling or emotion;
it’s more of a mental condition to describe a person.
