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.

    here is my sentence! (my boyfriend is Michael), can you tell me if this makes sense?

    Michael ha-go ga-chi de-i-teu ga-sseo yo

    • Seokjin Jin

      잘 썼어요! 한국어로도 써 주실래요?

    • Ashley Heil

      yes! could you tell me how to write in hangul more easily on a computer? I have to use a website right now to type in hangul. But I will write a sentence in hangul!

      어제남자친구 하고 같이 공부했어요

    1) 어제 진구 마났어요 그리고 커피랑 빵 같이 먹었어요.
    2) 어제 진구 마났어요 그니고 커피랑 빵 진구하고 먹었어요.

    Does sentence 1 or 2 work better?
    I want to make it clear that my friend and I ate together after meeting but I don’t feel like repeating 진구 twice in the same sentence like I did in #2
    Does 같이 work in the first sentence?

    • 애슐리

      the first one is better! :) and yes it works

    • LiHan

      So 같이 in the first sentence refers to 커피랑 빵 right?

    • Seokjin Jin

      Yes. :)

    • Seokjin Jin

      진구 마났어요 > 친구 만났어요

  • Sara

    저는 사촌이랑 카레를 먹고 싶어요.

    I want to say ” I want to eat curry with my cousin”. Is that correct?

    감사합니다 for this lesson :)

    • lil

      i think it would be “curry” “muk”(eat) “bogoshippoyo”(I want to)

    • 두이

      I believe 보고싶어요 means “I want to see” from the verb “보다” which means to see. So “먹고싶어요” I believe is correct.

  • Madie

    My sentences:
    저는 김치 먹었어요. 그리고 집에 왔어요. = I ate kimchi and went home.
    친구하고 학교에 갔어요. = I went to school with my friend.
    사과랑 복숭아 사고 싶어요. = I want to buy apples and peaches.

    I have one question if I may. I know 와/과 means ‘and’ as well, is it interchangeable with 하고 and (이)랑? I’m sorry if I’m too impatient student :)

    감사합니다 for great lessons!

  • Sallie Jones

    Why say “대통령하고 춤을 출 거예요” rather than “대통령하고 출 거예요” if the verb already indicates that “I will dance”? Why repeat the action?

    • Kai

      춤을 추다 = to dance (with) :)

    I want to by a computer and a cellphone. Am I right? Am I right? ooooohh thank you for making something new!

    • Seokjin Jin

      You’re right! Awesome! Good job!

    • Adam Kane

      No it’s wrong. Sorry :(. It’s buy not by :)

    Dictation: 저는 검퓨터하고 핸드폰을 사고 싶어요.
    Translation: I want to buy a computer and a cell phone.

    • Seokjin Jin

      검퓨터하고 > 컴퓨터하고


    • http://batman-news.com Jangmi

      감사합니다. I know I had something wrong :). I think konglish is the hardest to spell.

  • hwa young

    저는 컴퓨터하고 핸드펀 사고 싶어요 means i want to buy mobile phone and computer,right??

    • Catia

      Yes :)

  • Brianne Daniels

    “I want a computer and a cellphone”??? Lol I’m assuming that’s what the sentence was

  • Reika Sayuri

    I want to buy computer and cellphone..Is this right?? :)

  • Lovely Nody (나다)

    I want to buy a computer and a phone !
    Kamsahamnida for the lesson ! ;)

  • Ashley Heil

    Does this sentence make sense? 친구하고 저녁을 먹고 싶어요?

    I’m trying to say, do you want to have dinner with friends ?

    • KyungHwa Sun

      Yes, it does. If you talk about “friends(plural)” though, you need to say 친구들 instead of 친구. ;-)

  • Prisca Harrison

    the sentence means “i bought a computer and a phone” i think

  • maga

    내일 엄마랑 크리스마스 선물을 살 거예요

    • Seokjin Jin

      It’s perfect! 잘 썼어요.

  • Tanya Gandolfo

    I’m pretty sure it means ‘I bought a computer and a phone’ :)

  • Jan

    지금 엄마하고 먹어요. “Now, I eat with my mother.”
    지금 엄마하고 먹을 거에요. “Now, I’m going to eat with my mother.”

    Do they make sense? If so, which one is better? :)

    • HenrikF

      The first one would sound better if it were a progressive sentence.
      지금 엄마하고 먹고 있어요 = I’m eating with my mom now.

      The second one is fine. I think it’s better to translate it to “I will eat with my mom now”. It should also be 거예요, rather than 거에요.

    • Jan

      감사합니다 !

  • Tim H

    I want to buy a computer and phone ^^

    • Seokjin Jin

      Great job!

  • faiza

    i want to buy a computer and a cellphone
    저하고 여동생은 노래 좋아요
    친구랑 저는 공부했어요
    저는 나의 친구들 만날 거예요 그리고 노래방 갈 거예요
    OMG! i really want this sentences to be correct . if it is not please correct them for me . i’m your lovely student please help me :)

    • HenrikF

      I’m not sure what you are trying to say in your first sentence.
      Second one is good.
      In your third sentence, you should use 저의 instead of 나의. I would also put a ~에 after 노래방.

  • faiza

    please my dear teachers i see sometimes in kdramas or ksongs that they say 하고 twice for exemple 오빠하고 나하고 in gwiyomi song . so is this is correct or no? can we say 우유하고 방하고 please answer me i can’t find the answer by my self 감사합니다

    • Seokjin Jin

      It is correct. That means “and” and “with”.

      우유하고 방하고 > 우유하고 빵하고

    • faiza

      oh ok now i understand 정말 감사해요

    • mariam weslati

      hi , i’m mariam , i’m looking for someone to practice korean with ! can you help me ?

    어제 엄마하고 같이 김치를 먹었어요 .
    오늘 친구하고 곤서트 갈고예요 .

    어떼요 ?

  • 하니

    어제 엄마하고 깉이 김치를 먹었어요 .

    내일 친구하고 콘서트 갈거예요 .

    어때요 ???

    • HenrikF

      깉이 –> 같이
      I also think ~에 should be followed by 콘서트.

      어제 엄마하고 같이 김치를 먹었어요.

      내일 친구하고 콘서트에 갈 거예요.

  • Lucy

    What is 영주 saying after 핸드폰? It sounds like she’s saying 핸드폰에 or 핸드폰의 but I know they are particles for location and possession so I’m kinda confused.
    Can someone help?

    • Seokjin Jin

      When we say it fast, the pronunciation 의 sometimes sound like 에.
      However you can guess what the person meant through the context.

    • Lucy

      Why is she using 의 there? Is it to indicate she wants to buy a cell phone for herself…I don’t quite understand the context

  • jo-an

    i like computer and celphone.
    is this correct??the last word is not clear because it is very fast.

    • Seokjin Jin

      She said that she wants to buy mobile phone and computer.
      You did a good job! :)

  • Serenity Maria

    She wants to buy a computer and cellphone. That is my answer

    • Serenity Maria

      친구하고 술 마섰어요 correct me if I’m wrong

    • KyungHwa Sun

      Correction :
      친구하고 술 마셨어요.

    • Serenity Maria

      thank you :)

  • Matt

    저는 빵이랑 치즈 먹었어요. = I ate bread and cheese.
    저는 치즈랑 빵 먹었어요. = I ate cheese and bread.

    오늘 저는 “하고”하고 “이랑” 배웠어요. = Today I learned “하고” and “이랑”.
    내일 친구하고 같이 수영할 거예요. = Tomorrow I am going swimming together with a friend.

    영주 말했어요: “저는 컴퓨터하고 핸드폰에 사고 싶어요.” = I want to buy a computer and cell phone.

    감사합니다 for the lesson.

    • Seokjin Jin

      와! 잘 썼어요! You did a good job!

    • Matt

      선생님 감사합니다!

  • Myla Rose

    In this sentence, “I bought milk and bread yesterday.”, can I use either 그리고, 하고 / (이) 랑??

    • chris

      Is more natural to use 하고 or (이) 랑

    • Myla Rose

      I see. Thank you so much for the reply! ;) I also review the lessons and I fully understand the use of that three words.

  • Vanessa

    In what context do I use 그리고, 하고 / (이) 랑? Or are they interchangeable?

    • lili

      They said that 그리고 is for link sentences and 하고 / (이) 랑 for nouns

    • dalia

      (이) 랑 for informal sitiuation

  • Fabiano Azevedo


    저는 김 현아를하고 데이트 갈 거예요.
    I meant to say “I am going to go on a date with Kim Hyuna”.

    In this case I attached two particles to 김 현아, respectively 를 and 하고. Is this correct, or should I drop the object particle 를?

    감사 ~~

  • Lala

    Is the sentence: I want to buy a computer? I know there’s something else there too. Could it be a place – Oh I read the comments.. hehe but it doesn’t sound like 휴대 폰? Is it because she’s saying it fast?

  • dalia

    she said . i want to buy computer and cell phone .
    저 는 컴퓨터 하고 휴대폰 서고싶어요

  • Lisa Alarcon

    Why is it “춤울 출 거예요”? (Third sample sentence)

  • Chee Yang

    I bought a computer and handphone. Is this the answer?

  • cjohnson1341

    저도 오늘은 한국서생님 하고 공부해요.

  • Cécilia Dumar

    “I would like to buy a computer and an cellphone”
    Is this what she said? :)
