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!

You can view 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.


We also have books for you to study with! Check them out on our store!

    질문 있는데요~~나이가 같은 사람들한테도 그 씨/님 이라는 말 해야돼요?

      나이가 같아도 처음 보는 사람들한테는 보통 이름 뒤에 “씨”를 붙여요. 하지만 “님”은 잘 쓰지 않아요.

      근데 이해가 잘 안 돼요 아버지께서, 아버님께서 혹은 아버님이 인지 뭐가 맞아요? 아버지께서랑 아버지님이 라는 표현이 맞는 것 같은데요?

      그리고 그거 중 아무런 차이가 있어요? 어떤 경우에 뭐라고 해야 될까요

      그리고 나이가 많아 보인 낮선이나 윗사람이랑 대화하고 저 자신의 친척에 대해 말할 떄 친칙을 어떻게 불려야 돼요? 저희 엄마가, 저희 어머님이 혹은 저희 어머니께서 라고 해야 돼요?

      감사합니다.

    Is the difference between 선생님 and 교수님 the same as in English, where 교수님 refers to college/university professors?

    Hello. I can’t seem to download your PDF and mp3. I’ve tried your other lesson but it doesn’t seem to get through when I’m downloading this. Is there any problem whatsoever?

      Sorry for the inconvenience. Would you please try to download it again after a while? I found that kinda problem happens are occured temporally in several countries.

      If you still have the problem later, please let me know that. I will send the file.

    • Zia

      Unfortunately, I’ve been trying to download it for sometime now. It still won’t get through. I don’t know what the problem is but I know that all is fine because I was able to download Lesson 7. I’d appreciate it if you’d just send the file, if I am not such a bother, I mean. Really. Thank you very much.
