Level 2 Lesson 2 / object marking particles / 을, 를

Download Available

안녕하세요. ^^ In this lesson, we are looking at the object marking particles. As we mentioned a few times through our previous lessons, there are different types of particles in Korean, and these particles (subject marking particles, topic marking particles, location marking particles, and so on) are what make it easy to understand Korean sentences, even when the word order changes.
If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to leave us a comment! 감사합니다.

    어제 가게에서 7 시에 갔어요. 바나나를 2 개, 멜론을 3 개, 그리고 귤을 1 개 샀어요. 다음에 집에 한국어를 공부했어요.

    어제 치즈 피자(을) 먹었어요? -> Did you eat cheese pizza yesterday?

    이청바지를 자주 입어요 -> I wear this pair of blue jeans often

    감사합니다 ☺

      피자(를)

    • Maria

      oops x.x

    • Helena Blažková

      어제 치즈 피자(을) 먹었어요? >> 어제 치즈 피자(를) 먹었어요?
      을 >> 를 because 를 goes after vowel.

      이청바지를 자주 입어요 >> 이 청바지를 자주 입어요
      이청바지 >> 이 청바지 (those are two words, so there shoud be left space between them)

      Hope I’m right! 😀

    친구하고 영화를 볼 거예요. (I will watch a movie with a friend.)
    은식을 만들어요. (I make food.)

    감사합니다!

    • Nana Atmaja

      Food is 은식 or 음식 ???

    • Suga Swag

      Oops that was a typo! It’s 음식.

    For the last example (텔레비전(을) 일주일에 몇 번 봐요?), does it matter where the words in between the object and verb go?

    Like, is it the same if I say 텔레비전을 몇 일주일에 번 봐요?

    Or 텔레비전을 몇 번 일주일에 봐요?

    감사합니다~~

      In the second example, we know that “몇 번” means “how many times”. Now if we were to add something between the words “how many times” in English, it wouldn’t make sense. It’s the same thing with Korean, “몇 번” has to be together.

      In the third example, it’s understandable, but not correct. The particle “에” has to be written before everything else to be included in that week (일주일). If we were to write, “일주일에” after “몇 번” then we are not including “how many times” to “in a week”.

      I hope that helped.

  • Bennett Seacrist

    On the most recent “Running Man”, the team apologized to a former guest by giving him a basket of apples. They said something along the lines of “please accept our apology” and the subtitle mentioned that apology and apple were the same word. The moment I saw that I thought of this lesson. 🙂

  • Yerin

    Yes, “어제 뭐 했어요” is correct.

    If I want to say “How many times a week do you exercise?”, would I say it like this 일주일에 몇 번 운동해요?

  • Semitic akuma

    감사합니다

  • Zakiah Hafiz

    If I wanna say “How many times a week do you go shopping?”, would this be the right way to say it?

    쇼핑을 일주일에 몇 번 가요?

    • Kim h.t

      Thats right!
