Level 1 Lesson 3 / Good-bye, See you / 안녕히 가세요, 안녕히 계세요, 안녕

Download Available

After listening to this lesson, you can say “Good-bye” or “See you” in Korean. In polite/formal Korean, there are two basic ways to say Good-bye.

One is when you are the one who is leaving. And the other is when you are the one who is staying.


If you are leaving, and the other person is (or the other people are) staying, you can say:
안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo]

If you are staying, an the other person is (or the other people are) leaving, you can say:
안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]

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. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

  • Wa Ni Toh

    I noticed that the sound of consonant “g” in korean is like the sound of consonant “k” in english… xD

    • Seokjin Jin

      Generally, you can regard that it sounds like “k” but it sounds similar. I mean it is not exactly same as “k”. ㄱ (기역) is a side view of the back of the tongue raised toward the velum (soft palate).

    안녕하세요~ unrelated to the lesson. But I’ve been trying for ages to find what these two things mean. The first one is ‘드루와바여 못나가게해줄테니까’. The second thing is this hashtag I see on instagram. ‘웅스타그램’i know that Woong can be a name or a hero but what does it mean in this context. The same for 웅이, I see this in sentences all the time and i have no idea what it means. If anyone could help. Thank you! 감사합니다!!

    • Seokjin Jin

      드루와바여 못나가게해줄테니까

      Regarding 드루와바여, actually it is not a correct expression. The writer wrote the pronunciation on purpose. It should be 들어와봐요 that means “Just (try to) come in”.

      못나가게해줄테니까 > 못 나가게 해 줄테니까 – I won’t let you go.

      I didn’t know well about the 웅스타그램 so I searched it on the internet. It seems like the photos about someone or something named 웅이.

    • cherry

      I think’웅스타그램’means instagram? If you pronounce it, you will find it very similar. Just like인터넷for internet?

    For some reason, when I attempt to download the PDF for this lesson, it takes me to Scribd. unlike the other links. Here it wants to charge money to download the PDF for one day, or one month, etc. :(

  • Leiza

    I’m dying to pronounce the words due to it sounds very similar but this one doesn’t make me even confused. Thank you! Kamsahamnida! :))

    • Aleksandra Bartosik

      Leiza -(k)gamsahabnida there is only one M in the sentence.

    • Robin

      But you pronounce it as M ?! I think he wrote it as he speak it.
