Level 2 Lesson 4 / and, with / 하고, (이)랑

Download Available

In this lesson, we are introducing two new words, 하고 and (이)랑. These are conjunctive words that are used to link two nouns together with the meaning of “and”, and also to express the meaning of “together with”. Listen in to find out how they are used in actual conversations.


And from this lesson on, we are trying something new: we are going to have our friends appear in our lessons introducing their own sample phrases, so that you, our listeners, can have access to a wider range of sample sentences and also have a chance to listen to Korean native speakers other than our teachers. But don’t worry. Our friends’ sample sentences are NOT going to REPLACE the sample sentences by the two hosts 경은 and 현우. We are just adding more sample phrases.

We hope you enjoy this lesson as well, and let us know what you think!

And if you listen to the end of the lesson, write your answer for the little quiz at the end in the comment box! Thank you.

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.


  • 구말

    오늘 친구하고 테니스 놀었어요!

  • Ka Yong

    There’s an error in the PDF. The second example by Kyungmi. It says “I like spicy foods and sweet foods” which is wrong. Food should not have an ‘s’ at the back even if it is a plural noun because it is an uncountable noun.(:

    • Joyce

      Foods can actually be correctly use to refer to different types of food.

    코끼리 하고 꽃 샀어요 I bought an elephant and a flower

    I hope this sentence is correct as much as it makes sentence… (If you need any tip for unusual shopping let me know…)

    Hi there!

    1/ The romanization of 같이 is ga-chi. Why it is not ga-ti? What is the rule behind?

    2/ The phrase [dae-tong-ryeong-ha-go-chu-meul-chul-geo-ye-yo], why there is eul between chum and chul? The verb [dance] is [chum chu da], right?

    3/ Another phrase [eo-je-hong-dae-ha-go-sin-cho-ne-ga-sseo-yo], what is the [ne] in the phrase?

    Thanks always.

      1> If a consonant in the final position is followed by a vowel, the consonant sound shifts over to the syllable with the vowel. The only sounds that don’t shift over to the next syllable are ㅇ since it is impossible to begin a syllable with an “ng” sound and ㅎ becomes silent when followed by a vowel. Also when ㅌ is in the final position and followed by the vowel 이, the sound becomes 치. Similarly when ㄷ is in the final position and followed by the vowel 이, the sound becomes 지.

      2> “대통령하고 춤을 출 거예요”
      Regarding the expression “to dance”, we can use the both, “춤을 추다” or “춤추다”. However, concerning “춤을 추다”, it is like “do the dance”. 춤 is regarded as a noun and 추다 is regarded as a verb. So 안 is added before 추다 when it is changed to negative form.

      3> 어제 홍대하고 신촌에 갔어요.
      신촌에 sounds like [sin-cho-ne]. 에 is a location marking particle.

    Dear teachers, tell me please, in the end of the lesson did 영주 say “저는 컴퓨터하고 핸드폰을 사고싶어요- I want to buy a computer and a cellphone”? Hope to see your answer soon ;)

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      That’s correct!

  • Mhe

    I want to buy a computer and a handyphone (cellphone) :). 감사합니다.

    TTMIK is the most useful website I have ever come across!!
    I like tea (along)with sugar and milk – Could you give me the Korean translation as I am confused about the WITH and AND in the sentence and also the particle to be used!

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      It can be translated as “저는 설탕과 우유를 넣은 차를 좋아해요”. But naturally, I would say “저는 차에 설탕과 우유를 넣는 것을 좋아해요”.

    • satya

      “저는 차에 설탕과 우유를 넣는 것을 좋아해요”.
      Is 에 used as a location marking particle?
      The meaning of 넣는 것을 ?
      를을 are object marking particles?

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      Yes, the 에 was used as a location marking particle and 을 was used as an object marking particle. :)

    • satya

      감 사 합 니 다 선 생 님!

  • Devin Doss

    REALLY FAST!! But…

    저는 콤퓨터하고 핸드퍼우누 사고 싶어?
    I want to buy a computer and a handphone (cellphone).

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      It was quite close.

      저는 컴퓨터하고 핸드폰을 사고 싶어요.

  • Jean Carlo

    I got just a part of it, i think its something like this:

    저는 콤퓨터하고…….사고 싶어요.

    (i wanna buy a computer and…..)

  • Rikki

    Can you correct this?

    I’ve eaten in a restaurant with a friend, so I’m not hungry now.
    저는 식당에 친구랑 (같이) 먹었어요. 그래서 지금 안배고파요.

    Thanks!

    • http://twitter.com/jinseokjin jinseokjin

      식당에 > 식당에서

      지금 안배고파요. > 지금 안 배고파요. or 지금 배 안 고파요.

  • Yrrej Bojo

    Hey There?

    I just wanna ask something about “Gatchi” and “hamkke”

    They both mean together,right?

    So are they interchangeable??

    Please respond. :)) GAMSAHABNIDA :D

  • http://helpmeteacher.blogspot.com Kate

    좋읕 콤퓨터하고 핸드폰을 사고 십어요.

    “I want to buy a good computer and a good cell phone.”

    저도요. ㅋㅋ

    • http://helpmeteacher.blogspot.com Kate

      Haha, oops, she said 저는 and not 좋은. 제가 더 잘 듯고 뒈요…

  • caiowr

    Instead of using 같이 can I use the object marking particle 를 to avoid casing cofusion in my sentece?
    Ex: 친구랑/하고 영화를 봤어요. -> I saw a movie with a freind.

  • 슬픈 나

    내가 밤에서 먹을리가 없어요,다이어트 해요 그래서 가끔 슬퍼요 ㅠ.ㅠ

  • 니코

    칭구하고 같이 PC방에가 고싶어요.
    My friend and I want to go to a PC방.
    Is this right?~

  • lileng

    러시아에서 사랑하구.
    from russia with love
    is this right?

  • Yaz

    지난 주 한식에 언니랑 같이 갔어요. 진짜 맛있어요. (Last week I went to a Korean restaurant with my sister. It was really delicious!)

    감사합니다 선생님!

  • http://TalkToMeInKorean.com Nikkie

    Is this correct?
    저는 콤퓨터하고 테레비전으을
    어요.
    (I want to have my own computer and T.V.)

  • J.

    Hi! I’m just wondering if we can use 같이 without 하고 since 같이 means together too? So instead of 친구하고 같이 영화를 봤어요, can I say 친구 같이 영화를 봤어요?

    And before I go, I just want to say:
    감사합니다!!
    선생님 짱!!!!

  • dramabunster

    I think the sentence means
    “I want to buy a computer and a cellphone.”
    I hope I’m right.

    • Seokjin Jin

      Correct! Congratulations! 잘 했어요.

    저는 컴퓨커 하고 핸드폰에 사고 싶어요
    이거 맞아요?

  • wendy wang

    i think the sentence is
    ‘i want buy a computer and (XX)’ i’m not sue the second word, i just heard computer

    • Seokjin Jin

      It was 핸드폰 that means cell phone. :)

  • 뷔광람

    you are awesome teachers. ^^
    I think the sentence is: 저는 컴퓨터과 핸드폰 사고싶어요.

    Thanks.

  • Guest

    저는 컴퓨터 핸드폰 사고 싶어요 = I want to buy a computer and mobile phone.
