Level 1 Lesson 20 / Native Korean numbers / 하나, 둘, 셋, 넷 …

We are back with another number lesson! In lesson 15, we introduced the sino-Korean system and today we are introducing the native Korean number system. Having two separate ways of counting different things might look too complicated, and we will be surprised if you can memorize all the numbers at once and never forget them, but if you keep practicing the numbers in context, you will find it much easier in time. So today, we are going to first introduce the native Korean numbers, and ONLY going to cover how to say your age in Korean. If you can say how old you are in Korean after listening to this lesson, this lesson will have achieved its goal. Thank you! 감사합니다.

Level 1 Lesson 17 / Past Tense / -았/었/였어요 (했어요)

In this TTMIK lesson, we are looking at the past tense of the Korean language. By knowing how to change your verbs into the past tense, you will be able to talk about what you did yesterday, who you met last week, and etc. If you already understand how to change verbs into the present tense, using the past tense will be a breeze. And if you are still not sure how to use the present tense, don’t worry! We are going to review that in this lesson too. Be sure to ask us any questions you have in the comment box! Thank you!
