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.

    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 :)

  • 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) :)

      :)

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

    • Catia

      Yes :)

  • Brianne Daniels
