Hi! i’m Amy, Nice to meet you. in this series sambun hangugu were going to learn basic Korean expressions it’s super easy and it takes only 3 minutes. first of all, you are going to learn how to introduce your self in Korean. there are few different ways to do it depending on how formal you wan’t to be let’s first look at an informal way to introduce your self. annyeong. amy-ya.bangawo. hi. i’m Amy. nice to meet you. “Ann-yeong. Amy-ya.Ban-ga-wo.” here annyeong means “Peace” so. literally you say Peace to say hello in Korean. next you can say your name then add the ending sentence particle -ya. my name is Amy, so I say, “Amy-ya finally, you say bangawo. bangawo, means nice to meet you. now you try it. start by saying annyeong. then say your name followed by (-ya) if your name is David, you can say “David-ya” finally say. Bangawo. Annyeong. David-ya. Bangawo. now let see a formal version. Annyeonghaseyo. Amy-eyo. bangawayo.. hi! i’m Amy. Nice to meet you. Annyeonghaseyo. Amy-eyo. bangawayo.. what is change from the previous introduction. let take a close look at this together first, “Annyeong” has to change to “Annyeonghaseyo” haseyo. is the verb meaning to do. if you add “haseyo” next to annyeong, it becomes more formal and polite. Annyeong haseyo, next you can replace the particle -ya with -eyo both of them are sentence ending particle. and you can put them after nouns but -ya is informal and -eyo is formal so if you say Amy-eyo instead of Amy-ya you can introduce your name in more formal way finally, bangawoyo do you remember how to say, nice to meet you in the informal way? bangawo here you can simply add the particle -yo at the end of the verb. then it becomes formal. -yo is a particle that can make a sentence polite. bangawoyo. one more time. the formal way to introduce yourself Annyeonghaseyo. Amy-eyo.Bangawoyo. the informal way to introduce your self is?
Annyeong. Amy-ya.bangawo. now its time for Amy insights. when you introduce your self in Korea it polite to make a small bow if your a guy, bow with your hands at your side if your a girl, bow with your hands in front of you. bow from the waist, you don’t have to deep down very far. in the last lessons we learn about how to introduce our self in Korean. today, where going to learn how to use good manners as we thank people. are you ready? then let’s start. there are several ways to thank someone. let’s start with the most common phrase.
“gamsahamnida” gam-sa-ham-ni-da “gamsahamnida” means
i do thanks or thank you to say thank you very much you just need to add “daedanhee ” which means very much or greatly. daedanhee gamsahamnida. dae-dan-hee gam-sa-ham-ni-da. “daedanhee” means greatly so, daedanhee gamsahamnida. is like saying thank you very much. in the last lesson we saw that Korean has formal and informal ways of speaking. gamsahamnida. is pretty formal if you want to thank someone more casually you can use a shorter phrase. gomawo go-ma-wo lets break down those phrases in the formal way of saying thank you.
“gamsahamnida.” “gamsa” means thank you. hamnida is a formal way to do. so gamsahamnida means ‘i do thanks and to make it less formal we sap out gamsa with the different verb that’s gomawo it has the same meaning of thank you. but it’s more friendly, when someone thanks you? how’s your answer? there is no set response like your welcome in english. but there are a few things that you can say. the first thing is, anieyo. a-ni-eyo.. your literally are saying, no (problem). but this a common and informal way to response to someone thanking you. your telling the person that there nothing to bother you thanking for there’s another phrase that’s use to response to thank you in Korean chonmaneyo. cho-ma-ne-yo. but it not use all that often. you’re better of with anieyo. in most situation. now it’s time for Amy’s insights. gamsahamnida sounds formal. gomawo sounds informal. what if you wan’t to sound kind of formal but still kind of friendly. in that case you can upgrade to informal gomawo to gomawayo. you see you simply add -yo at the end.
-yo is the sentence ending particles that make sentences more polite this is a nice way to thank your waiter gomawoyo. in the last lesson we learn how to thank people by saying “gamsahamnida and gomawo” in this lesson we will learn some of the most common greetings used in Korea are you ready?
then let’s start. the most common informal greetings is:
Annyeong. An-nyeong. annyeong means peace.
we say it when we meet some one and also when we leave but only to a friend or someone younger than us the more standard greeting that you will hear a lot in Korea is Annyeong haseyo. annyeong haseyo literally annyeong haseyo means.
Are you at peace? we use it to say hello when we meet someone it’s technically a question but we don’t always say it that way. Annyeong haseyo, besause annyeong haseyo is question some people answer it yea. which means yes. before replying the same question.
annyeong haseyo. when it’s time to leave we have a couple ways to say Good bye if you were leaving and the other person is staying.
say, Annyeonghi-gyeseyo. An-nyeonghi-gye-se-yo. gyeseyo means please stay. so Annyeonghi-gyeseyo literally means.
please stay peacefully. casual version of annyeonghi-gyeseyo is Jal-it-sso. jal means well.
and isseo means stay informally. so jal isseo just means stay well. jal isseo if the other person is leaving.
say, annyeonhi-gaseyo. annyeonhi-gaseyo gaseyo means. please go.
so annyeonghi-gaseyo literally means.
please go peacefully. a casual version of annyeonghi-gaseyo is.
Jal-ga jal means well. and ga means go informally. so jal ga just means go well. now you know lots of ways to greet people in Korean. let’s review them all once again. to greet someone casually.
to greet someone repectfully.
annyeong haseyo. to say good bye respectfully when your leaving and the other person is staying.
annyeonghi-gyeseyo. to say good bye casually. when your leaving.
jal-it-sseo. to say good bye respectfully. when the other person is leaving.

sign up from your free life time account at koreanclass101.com annyeong haseyo. Amy-eyo. bangawayo. hi everybody i’m Amy welcome to koreanclass101.com sambun hangugu the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Korean. int he last lesson, we learn the most common greetings in Korean. do you remember them? in this lesson we are going to learn a very useful phrase.
do you speak English? if you find your self in a situation where you need assistance in English.
this phrase can be a life saver. and because your asking it in Korean. you can be sure that everyone will understand what you are asking, even if their answer is no. are you ready.?
then let’s start. here’s the basic way to ask wither someone’s speak English. yeongeo haseyo? yeo-ngeo ha-se-yo? yeongeo means English and haseyo means doyou do? so? yeongeo haseyo means.
do you do English? if you wan’t to be a little more specific, and let’s get someone’s ability to speak English you can say.
yeongeo hal-su-isseoyo? hal su isseoyo means can you do. can you do English? yeongeo hal-su-isseoyo? yeongeo hal-su-isseoyo? the sentence could be very helpful if your in trouble on the street, in the restaurant, or hotel. no matter where you are if your looking for someone who can speak English, just ask. if you wan’t to be super polite. just add,
sillyehajiman, which means , excuse me but, sillyehajiman yeongeo haseyo? excuse me, but do you speak English? sillyehajiman yeongeo haseyo? the response will probably like one of this three ye, YES. ye. jogeumiyo.
just a little. jogeumiyo. ani mothaeyo.
no i don’t. ani mothaeyo. since this last one is negative statement about ability.
we add mot. an adverb meaning can’t mothaeyo means i can’t now it’s time for Amy’s insights. for those of you who are not only English speakers you can obtusely use this question with any language you need. ilboneo for japanese jungugeo for chinese seupeino for Spainish. dogilo for german puranseu-eo for french. if you wan’t to say.
do speak German? you can simply replace yeongeo with dogileo. dogile haseyo? do you speak german? dogile haseyo? in this lesson we mention the word sllyehamnida. meaning excuse me, in the next lesson, we will learn this in other ways to apologize in Korean. it’s never to late to show your good manners to Korean people. sillyehajiman, hangugu haseyo? if you understood this you can say , ye meaning YES. in the last lesson, we learn the phrase.
sillyehajiman. yeongeo haseyo? excuse me, do you speak English? this uses the phrase sillyehajiman.
one way to say excuse me in Korean. today we are going to learn several ways to apologize in Korean.
area you ready? let’s start. First is, Silyehamnida.
it means excuse me. if you wan’t to add something to the end, twikato,
silyehajiman. excuse me but, here silye means excuse, and hamnida means to do. so Silyehamnida. means do excuse or excuse me. if you change hamnida with hajiman which means but. you can say silyehajiman means excuse me but, saying silyehamnida doesn’t mean you’ve done something wrong, it’s just means you have a question or favor to ask that may required someone to take some trouble with you. if you’ve actually done something rude, or if you made mistakes, you use a different phrase. joisonghamnida.
i’m sorry. joisonghamnida. this is the phrase you would use if you if you ever bump into somebody on the street in Korea joisonghamnida. if you say silyehamnida in this situation? the person that you’ve bump may not get that your apologizing and may instead thing that you bump on purpose to ask a favor. how about saying excuse me to get a waiter or bartender’s attention. Koreans use a couple of phrases for that the first is,
yeogiyo! yeogiyo! that means over here please! it may sound a little rude in English, but in Korean it’s fine. another version the sound slightly more polite is.
jeogiyo! jeogiyo! that means excuse me, you there! it may sound in more rude in English, but in korean it’s no problem when the waiter is away from you, you can use this phrase
jeogiyo! you don’t have to wait for the waiter to come to you .
just speak out with, Yeogiyo or Jeogiyo. between friends you can say mianhae sorry. Mianhae mianhae is an informal way to apologize to someone. using mianhae instead of joisong. instead you’ve hurt someones feeling not just inconvenience them now it’s time for Amy’s insights. wan’t to sound more sincere when you apologize? just that jungmal, which means truly jungmal mianhamnida.
i’m truly sorry. jungmal mianhamnida. you can use jungmal with mianhamnida and joisong hamnida. but not with silyehamnida do you know anything about counting in Korean? how about the name of this series? sambun hangugu, see you already know a number. sam which means three in this lesson we’re going to learn some numbers. yes! numbers. sutja (numbers). there are actually two systems of counting in Korean. in this lesson you are going to learn the chinese base numbers 1 to 10. and you are going to learn them in 3 minutes. sambun. are you ready? then lets start. il ( one) i (two) sam ( three) sa ( four) o ( five) yuk (six) chil (seven) pal (eight) gu (nine) sip (ten) ok, noe repeat after me.
i’ll say the numbers and give you time to repeat it you wan’t il i sam sa o yuk chil pal gu sip great job! what comes before il?
do you knoe how to say zero in Korean?
i’t’s yeong but in phone Numbers it’s often said gong. yeong , gong imagine someones tell you a phone number can you understand it? gong, il , gong sam, il , chil, o, sa ,i , yuk , pal now it’s time for Amy’s insights. as we mention earlier, Korean has two system of counting the Chinese base one we’re learning now and the native Korean now. the Chinese base one is easier so we’re learning it first. but we will learn the native Korean counting system in the very next sambun hangugu lesson see you then, tamiteo manayo.
