    혜진씨는 말했어요: “월요일부터 일요일저녁까지 일해요.”
    정말요? ㅠ.ㅠ

    My sample sentence:
    저는 금요일에 쇼핑 할 거예요.

  • 아야

    남자친구가 토요일마다 집에 왔어요 = my boyfriend came home every saturday.
    내일는 진짜 신나 일 거예요 = tomorrow is gonna be an exciting day.
    is it correct? please correct me if I made mistakes.
    감사합니다…

  • Annika

    윌요(月曜)、화요(火曜)、수요(水曜)、목요(木曜)、금요(金曜)、토요(土曜)、일요(日曜)… I love how Japanese and Korean are related so much! I’m always getting excited when I see another similarity and the Days of the week are just about the same! 🙂

    • Kenny Lau

      It is also related to the English names and also the names in almost every language.

  • btsbts

    Listen to Iu’s song “Friday”, they are all introduced in the beginning of the song!

  • Nana Atmaja

    I want to ask about this
    미경: 어제는 진짜 신나는 금요일이었어요.
    [eo-je-neun jin-jja sin-na-neun geu-myo-il-i-eo-sseo-yo]
    = Yesterday was a really exciting Friday.
    Why 금요일이었어요? What’s the meaning?

    And why in level 2 i found many examples that very made me confused, the sentences have a lot of word that nothing i know before in level 1 or etc.

    • Kenny Lau

      이었어요 is the past tense of 이에요.

  • Semitic akuma

    월요일 부터 일요일 something something 까지 something

  • Semitic akuma

    감사합니다 셈

    월요일 부터 일요일 저녁 까지 일해요.
    I work from Monday to Sunday evening.
    Is it right?

    • Kyeong-Eun Choi

      Perfect! 근데 주말에도 일해요? ㅠ.ㅠ 화이팅!

  • SJY

    Is “는” necessary in this sentence: 토요일에는 소풍을 갈 거예요?

    • Kenny Lau

      는 is not necessary in almost every sentence.

  • Ikraan H

    오늘은 일요일이에요 Today is Sunday.

    TTMIK 정말 감사합니다.

    • Seokjin Jin

      저희와 함께 공부해 주셔서 감사합니다!

  • Kenza

    월요일은 이드 알 아드하 있었어요 . 그래서 고기는 많아 먹었어요 .
    ” Monday was Eid Al-Adha , so i ate alot of meat.”
    I hope i said it correctly . (I didn’t quite know how to say “Eid Al-Adha” in Korean , so i just wrote it the way it is)

    • Kenny Lau

      The transliteration attempt was quite good. It is 이드 알아드하 in Korean.

      I found that in ko.wikipedia: https://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EC%9D%B4%EB%93%9C_%EC%95%8C%EC%95%84%EB%93%9C%ED%95%98

      Since 고기 is the object of the sentence, it is safer to use the object-marking particles 을/를 instead of the topic marking particle 은/는 since the topic is “Monday”…

      이드 알 아드하 있었어요 >> 이드 알아드하예요

  • Kenny Lau

    월요일: wol-yo-il > wo-ryo-il
    화요일: hwa-yo-il > hwa-yo-il
    수요일: su-yo-il > su-yo-il
    목요일: mok-yo-il > mo-gyo-il
    금요일 ‎geum-yo-il > keu-myo-il
    토요일 ‎to-yo-il > to-yo-il
    일요일 ‎il-yo-il > i-ryo-il

    Maybe it’s 월요일 부터 일요일 전역 까지 일해요
    I will work from Monday to Sunday?

    But I didn’t understand what 전역 meant if that’s what she said!! Help!
