Korean for fun

Basics

(i) simple phrases
(ii) smart phrases


simple phrases


yeh ( yes )


ah-ni-o ( no )


kwen-chah-nah-yo ( It's okay. That's alright. )


ahn-nyong-ha-se-yo ( How are you? How do you do? )


ahn-nyong-i kah-se-yo ( Good bye. )


kahm-sa-hahm-ni-da ( Thank you [ formal ] )


koh-mahp-soom-ni-da ( Thank you [ less formal ] )


che-sohng-hahm-ni-da ( am sorry [ intenes ] )


mi-ahn-hahm-ni-da ( am sorry [ less intenes ] )



(ii) smart phrases

The following phrases are complete sentences by themselves. However, you can also make multiple sentences with them. All you have to do is put the word you want in front of the phrase. For example:

+=

k'uh-p'i + chu-se-yo = k'uh-p'i chu-se-yo
coffee + give me = "Give me coffee." " I'd like to have coffee, please."




Is there ...? Is ... there? Do you have ...? Have you got ...?



There is ... ; I have ... ; ... is here



Is there not ...? Is ... not there? Do you not have ...?



There is not ... ; ... is not here ; I don't have ...



Give me ...; I'd like ..., please.



Do you do ...? Do you speak ...?

Is it good? Do you like it? ; Is ... good? Do you like ...?

Eating, Drinking, Traveling, and shopping.

(i) numbers and money



"100,000" is ship-mahn

As you can see, units change every four digits in Korea (and in many other Asian counturies), and adding a comma every three digits ('1,000') is very western custom.

"14" is ship-sah


Similarly, 143 is paek-sah-ship-sahm

2. money in different forms



tohn ( money )



won ( the korean monetary unit )



k'ah-d ( credit card )



yo-heang-jah soo-p'yoh ( traveler's check )



dahl-luh ( dollar )

yeah. when people greet you,

"Annyong-Haseyo."

then u can reply it with,

"Ne, Annyong haseyo."

which means, "fine, and how are you?"

and u can use it in a conversation,
vice versa.
