Download Available

Hello everyone, we are back with another lesson! Like many languages in the world, there are many conjuctions in the Korean language. In this lesson we are introducing two of them: 그리고 and 그래서. 그리고 [geu-ri-go] has the meaning of “and” and “and then”, depending on the context. 그래서 [geu-rae-seo] has the meaning of “therefore” and “so”. If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to leave us a comment! 감사합니다.

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.

    저는 피자 좋아해요, 그래서 그 것을 먹고 싶어요.

    I’m trying to say “I like pizza, so I want to eat that.”

    Is this correct?

      그 것을 > 그것을

      It was a small mistake. Good job!

    Is it necessary to put a period after the first sentence? Or can you link them together in one sentence like in English?

    [I really like BIGBANG, so I want to see them live again.]

    어제 학교에 갔어요 그리고 시험이 했어요. I want to say: “Yesterday, I had a went to school and did an exam.” Or would it make more sense to use the 쓰다 verb?

    감사합니다 선생님!

    전공은 언어학이에요 그래서 일본어하고 한국어 지금 공부해요. (I’m majoring in linguistics, so now I’m learning Japanese and Korean) (* 일본어가 학교에 배워요. 한국어는 학교에 없어요 (they don’t offer Korean :( or many languages at that in my university)

    내일은 비가 올거 예요. 그래서 학교에 오토바이를 안탈 거예요.

    It will rain tomorrow. So I will not take my motorbike to school.

    • Seokjin Jin

      Good job! It will be more natural to say “학교에 오토바이를 타고 가지 않을 거예요”.
