Level 1 Lesson 19 / When / 언제

Download Available

Hello everyone, we are back with another lesson! This one is a bit shorter than the last one, and we are introducing how to say ‘when’ in Korean. You can also listen to many examples where the word ‘when’ is used to form questions. Listen in, check out the free PDF lesson note, and be sure to try answering the question “When do you get up in the morning?” in Korean in the comment box.

Thank you as always for studying with us! 감사합니다.

So, 아침에 언제 일어나요?

You can download a free PDF for this lesson here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here.

    The podcast discusses adding 에 to denote time. What is done if the word already ends with ㅔ such as 어제?어제에 seems a tad repetitive.

      To use characters like ㅆ and ㄸ, you just hold shift and press the single character key :D

    Anneyonghaseyeo yeoreobun, lol excuse my messed up romanization ^^ so I was justwondering if there is a place on this website where we can fin exercices. I mean, discussing in the comments and reviews are fun and all that, but just to make sure we are mastering what we learn (or at least trying to kkkkkk) also, thank you TTMIK so much, I never thought I could study Korean so easily and for free on top of that! I can finally understand stuff from k-dramas other than oppa, omo, daebak…. gamseuhamnida
