  • Gavin Ng

    In this sentence from the pdf, 토요일 저녁에는 새로운 언어 공부를 시작해요., what does 새로운 mean?


    • Ula

      새로운 means new I think

  • Nicole Persichini

    I sure takes me a lot of times of listening before I get the translation! This weeks quiz is… I work from Monday until Sunday evening.

  • Nicole Persichini

    I sure wish the sample sentences were said a little slower since this is only Level 2 and many of the words used are new! It is frustrating to pick out a couple of words and listen over and over. I really like when things are said slower and then in actual speed. For me, this builds confidence in what I am learning.

      Hello ~ I’m like you, learning Korean trough here, but I want to comment anyway :)

      Your sentence (저는 일요일 피자를 먹을 거예요) is correct for me, but I think, I’ll prefer to use “재가” instead of “저는” because of the subject topik particule. (I don’t think to be wrong, but If I am, please tell me)

      For your “PS”, my name is Alexandre is 알렉산드르, 그래서 (So) Alexandra is 알렉산드라 !

  • mazeldazel

    Ok so when 일 means sun and 월 means moon, that’s purely chinese words right? Like no one would use them in a normal Korean sentence to mean just sun and moon?

    • JooyeonPark

      Yes, correct! :D

    Having learned Japanese, it’s refreshing to see a little crossover here and there. Gives me some easy mnemonics. The days use the same hanja/kanji and have similar pronunciations (ka/hwa, sui/su, moku/mog, kin/keum, do/to).
