When you learn a foreign language, there are always times when you have to introduce yourself to others while your vocabulary is still limited. In this case, sometimes, rather than trying to just memorize a lot of words at once, learning to use various sentence patterns that are necessary for self-introduction can be much more helpful. And the rest is just looking up the dictionary!
Welcome back to another lesson on TENSEs! In this lesson we are introducing how to make sentences in the present progressive form, such as “I’m eating.” “I’m studying.” and “I’m driving.” The basic construction in the present tense is VERB STEM + -고 있어요 [-go i-sseo-yo], and you can find out how to say this in the past tense and the future tense as well by listening to the lesson. Be sure to answer the quiz at the end of the lesson as well!
We are always surrounded by objects, people, animals and many other stuff, and more often than not, we get to COUNT them. Korean has a different kind of counting system from that of English, so let’s learn how to count things (and people) in Korean. In Korean there are hundreds of counters or counting units, but the two words that are most frequently used are 개 and 명. Let us find out how to use them in context and also learn a few other counters. Thank you for studying with us and please feel free to leave us comments and questions!!
Now that we have learned the two different number systems in Korean, it is time to talk about the time!Through this lesson, learn how to ask and tell the time in Korean! In Korean, you use the native Korean numbers to tell the time, and the sino-Korean numbers to tell the minute. Find out more about how to go about doing this by listening to the lesson.

In this TalkToMeInKorean lesson, we are introducing two more conjunctive words, 그렇지만 [geu-reo-chi-man] and 그런데 [geu-reon-de]. 그렇지만 and 그런데 both mean “but” but 그런데 has a wider range of meanings. Listen in to find out what these two words mean and how they are used!
In this Talk To Me In Korean lesson, we are introducing the Korean names for the 7 days in a week.

In this lesson, we are introducing two new words, 하고 and (이)랑. These are conjunctive words that are used to link two nouns together with the meaning of “and”, and also to express the meaning of “together with”. Listen in to find out how they are used in actual conversations.
Hello everyone, we are back with another lesson! Like many languages in the world, there are many conjuctions in the Korean language.

안녕하세요. ^^ In this lesson, we are looking at the object marking particles. As we mentioned a few times through our previous lessons, there are different types of particles in Korean, and these particles (subject marking particles, topic marking particles, location marking particles, and so on) are what make it easy to understand Korean sentences, even when the word order changes.
