안녕하세요! Welcome to the 9th installment in the Word Builder series. In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words based on Chinese characters, but many of them are. In this World Builder lesson, we will be looking at how to use the formal suffix of -님. We hope you enjoy the lesson!
The Korean expression, 어차피 [eo-cha-pi], can be translated to many things in English and sometimes doesn’t translate very well as some of the various translations for the word are “anyway”, “in any case”, or “one way or the other”. Come join in as 현우 and 경은 explain how and to use 어차피 to express yourself!
안녕하세요! In this lesson, we will be looking at how to say “I’m not sure if…” in Korean by using the structure -(으/느)ㄴ지 잘 모르겠어요. As with many other aspects of the Korean language, it’s important to remember that this structure is not going to be translated word for word, so make sure you check out the lesson to learn more about it!
안녕하세요. Today, we will be giving a lesson on the expression -(으)ㄴ/는 김에. This expression is used to form sentences such as “Since you are already going to do A, do B” or “While doing A, do B, too.” We know that all of our listeners will be able to learn a lot from this lesson, so grab a pen and paper, and let’s get to learning!
안녕하세요! This is the Sentence Building Drill (문장 만들기 연습) lesson! In this series, we will look at how you can expand your Korean sentence building skills by adding or replacing certain words in given sentences.

This series will be a good opportunity for you to review what you have learned in the past and also to learn some new vocabulary! Have fun studying!
