When kids are starting to learn how to utter and fully understand a language, they are not expected to be able to master the grammar principles, memorize several phrases, and master the language at one time. Rather, kids begin getting to know normally utilized phrases such as “daddy” and “mommy” simply because these are oftentimes observed. It is going to be simpler and possible to learn something if one starts with useful and everyday words. A similar method may also be used by adults who are studying foreign languages.
If you would like to study the Korean language, you can start by learning the day-to-day phrases which are used in almost daily work. There are regularly used words such as those used when greeting other people. You can start by saying “Joh-eun ahchim-ipnida” which means “Good morning” in Korea. Or possibly you may greet somebody by saying “annyeonghaseyo” which means hello. Some other greetings including “Chu-eum bepgetseupnida?” which means “How do you do?” and “Jal jinet-uhyo” which means “How are you doing?” are all useful words to learn.
To learn to say goodbye is as significant as learning to greet people. It is best to say goodbye either by saying, “Annyeonghee gaseyo,” or Annyeonghee gyeseyo.” To express that you would like the other person to take good care, simply say “Jal jineseyo.” When leaving a person can say “See you later” and the proper way to say this is “Najoong-eh bwayo.” A person wanting to be in touch may say “Call me later, please” and that is interpreted as “Juhnhwa juseyo.”
When out for shopping, there are actually standard expressions that may be helpful. You may ask the saleswoman for the price tag of a certain item by asking, “Iguht-eun uhlmaipnika?” Buyers who are haggling and inquiring the vendor if he or she can lower the price say, “Ghak-ah jushiget-uhyo?” If you would like ask the sum price of the purchases, you must say “Chong uhlmaipnika?” In inquiring if payment is accepted through credit card, a way to inquire is “Shinyong card-eul batnayo?” In case you feel like you want the cashier to keep the change right after paying the over all purchases, you may say “Guhsureundon-eun gajiseyo.” which means “Keep the change.” To politely ask for your receipt, say “Yhungsujeeung-eul juseyo.”
When you are traveling in Korea, there are several Korean phrases that will truly be helpful. You can ask your companion, “Yuhgiga uhdi-ipnika?” when you wanted to know where you are. Whenever you would like to ask where the subway is located, say “Jihachul yuhk-eun uhdi-ipnika?” “Taxi jungrujang-i uhdi-ipnika,” is used when you are inquiring where the taxi stand is. Just before getting on the bus or taxi you must check the cost of a ride so you may ask how much the fare of the bus is, by asking “Bus jihachul yogeum-eun uhlma-ipnika?” or maybe “Taxi jihachul yogeum-eun uhlma-ipnika?”
You will know more Korean terms if you continue to study and learn the Korean language. Learning might be quite trying in the beginning yet the process is going to be fun as you get to apply the Korean terms that you learn in daily encounters. There are countless resources available to improve your Korean language writing and speaking skills. Always be open to the learning possibilities that will come your way.
