In this TTMIK lesson, you can learn how to ask someone if they have something and also how to tell someone to “give” you something. Please read the attached free PDF file while you are listening or after you listened to the MP3 audio lesson. If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to ask us in the comment for this lesson! 감사합니다!

  • Qistina Izni

    is this correct?

    orenji-eun juseyo= Dont give me anything just give me orange, only orange.

    im still trying to understand the topic/subject marking particles..

    • Nurimanda Dputri

      I think that should be orenji-neun juseyo..

  • Joeble

    I don’t know if someone has mentioned this already but there is a typo in the pdf for Level 1 Lesson 11. It says “사과 없어요? [sa-gwa i-sseo-yo]” but it should say “사과 없어요? [sa-gwa eop-seo-yo]”. The romanization is wrong. ^^;

  • Nurimanda Dputri

    안녕힉계세요. .><♥♥♥

    • Seokjin Jin

      Thanks for enjoying our lessons! 고마워요! 안녕히 계세요.

  • Nadya

    Dear teachers, help me please!) Is 주세요 expression is the politest way to ask someone to give or to do something? Or can it become more polite by using 입니다/습니다 ending? If it can, write please the correct form of it! 감사합니다!!!

    • Seokjin Jin

      With “-입니다/습니다” pattern, you can describe something but you can’t make “asking” sentences. So, it is good to use “-주세요” pattern when you want to ask someone to do something.

    • Nadya

      선생님 감사합니다 for your answer! You have helped me a lot! *bow*

  • cheong yana

  • Serenity Maria

    the two new people voices are so dull its hard to understand their pronunciation :/ making it harder for me to understand what they are saying >.<

    • Kit L

      U means James and SoYang? They are not native Korean, but their Korean are considered very good already.

  • Kyle Jones

    On your pdf, on the top of the second page, you have a typo in the romanization of the korean! The third example says 없어요 but you wrote I-ssyeo-yo!

  • Hilda

    I am still confused over the use of subject and topic particles….

    • viona

      me too

  • Bergen

    Since 우유 주세요 means “give me some milk please”, can I turn that into a question? Like if I say 우유 주세요? Does that mean “can I have some milk, please?”

  • farah tea

    I’ve started yesterday and am finding the lessons beyond helpful and I am very grateful for all your hard work, but there is one thing that somewhat irks me; the way the conversation tends to sound awkwardly forced is a bit uh… yeah. But nonetheless, it is all very, very helpful!! (I’m really sorry T^T)

  • Menna Yehia

    돈 주세요?? 돈은 없어요?!! 저는 돈은 있어요 =D =D =D

    • Seokjin Jin

      ㅎㅎㅎㅎ 저도 돈은 있어요. ㅎㅎ

  • Matt

    After reading the pdf of the lesson I had to look up what ‘bulgogi’ was. Now I believe “불고기 주세요.” may be the most important thing I take away from these lessons.

    감사합니다 for the lesson.

  • Nadine Azore

    Thank you for the lessons, I’ve actually learned more from the 11 lessons that I’ve listen to than I have from the 8 months I’ve been in Korea (which is sad)

    • KyungHwa Sun

      Thank you for studying with us! =)

  • Carly W.

    Thank you for another helpful lesson! Could you please help me with the topic marking particles used in the audio lesson? I’m still confused by these particles, and I was wondering if I understand properly:

    돈은 없어요 –> Does this imply “I have other things, but money I don’t have”? Or maybe “I would give you money if I had it”?

    장갑은 있어요 –> Suggests “I have gloves but I’m not going to give them to you”?

    I’m sorry if this is a very dumb question >_<

  • 후다

  • Viridiana Martinez

    Hi, I started learning korean with you guys about a week ago and it’s extremely awesome the way you guys teach it.
    But I have a question, on the pdf I don’t know if its simply a mistake or if its actually supposed to say that on the examples of page 2
    “사과 없어요? [sa-gwa i-sseo-yo] = You don’t have any apple? There is no apple?”
    isn’t it supposed to say [eop-seo-yo] instead of [i-sseo-yo]?

    • Bads

      I believe 없어요 is read as oep seo yo and not i sseo yo. So its right. There is no apple.

    • Viridiana Martinez

      oh ok thanks

  • FinalWholockianGrrlGamerFaerie

    I can’t wait until my Grandma comes back from Korea so I can show off all these new words I have been learning! I feel like a little kid saying this!

  • AnnDee

    Can we put subject or topic marking particles before 주세요? Ex. 사과 는 / 사과 가 주세요?

    • JooyeonPark

      It should be an object that is put before “주세요”
      So, it will be like “사과를 주세요”

  • Chiara Copeland

    돈 주세요 ?

  • yourippehdees

    Is there any coffee?

    Large coffee, please.

    강아지 주세요
    Give me a puppy, please. (so says my daughter)

    말 주세요 (누구예요?)
    Give me a horse, please. (Guess who?)

    맥주 마시고십어요. 맥주 있어요?
    I would like some beer. Do you have beer?

    내, 있아요.
    Yes, we have it.

    좋아요. 맥주한명 주세요.
    Good. I’ll  take one bottle of beer, please.

    • OYOrange

      “큰커피를주세요Large coffee, please.”

      Why did you put 를 between coffee and please?

    • yourippehdees

      Because it is the object of 주세요 -give me what? Coffee. So I used the object marking particle.

    • Wendra Setiawan

      “내, 있아요.” is wrong >> 네, 있어요

    • yourippehdees

      Thanks for catching that!
