Download Available

In this Talk To Me In Korean lesson, we are introducing the Korean names for the 7 days in a week. It takes some effort to memorize and remember these names, but we hope that listening to this lesson will make it a bit easier for you to remember them. As always, please feel free to ask us any questions!

Talk to our friends (whose voices you heard in this lesson) in Korean!

Our friends featured in this lesson are:
우란 (http://twitter.com/rani_woo)
조미경 (http://twitter.com/mikyungcho)
조혜진 (http://twitter.com/nowhere06)

And also, don’t forget to write in the comment what you think 혜진 said in Korean and the translation at the end of the lesson. Thank you for studying with us.

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.

    lunes, martes, miyerkules, huwebes, biyernes, sabado, linggo ^_^ oh i forgot our country was influenced by spaniards. I really envy you seonsaengnim that you’re already learning spanish even though we have some language similarities with spanish. I still want to learn full spanish language after i learn hangeul because we’ve only taught half of spanish language. By any chance seonsaengnim, do you know any course web site that offers spanish lesson?
    i’m looking forward with your reply if there’s any.

    TTMIK more power! kamsahamnida!

    Ok, I’ve waited 3 week before starting to make my own sample sentences and even though I’ve been trying to swallow as much as I could during these last 3 weeks (almost 6 levels, for real, well not really actually since I still don’t know much …) since I hadn’t tried to articulate my own sentences until now, either spoken or written, my korean is truly insignificant yet. So let’s not waste time and let’s start getting something done from level 2… until levelll… until I collapse because of an overheated brain… But today (and tom.) I’ll just be up for one sentence on each lesson of level 2 and it’s more motivating to expose and share them here and maybe even get corrected… 그리고 I can also promote my “language blog” a little this way. There’s no ads so I don’t make a penny out of it anyway… Peace

    1.저는 내일 언어 교환 모임 갈 거예요
    Tomorrow I will go to the language exchange meeting

    언어 교환 모임: Does that mean language exchange meeting?

    check out my language blog: http://lingod.blogspot.kr

    Peace again ,Leon 레옹

    Anyway, here’s my blog http://lingod.blogspot.kr , isn’t

    Yes, it is enjoy what’s left of your 일요일 or the day you live in right now ,레옹

    Hello again!

    1/ In these two sentences:
    [토요일에는 소풍을 갈 거예요]
    [저는 월요일에 영화를 봤어요]
    Is the [에] literally meant [on] in these sentences? If so, is it acceptable to leave it out?

    2/ The present tense of start [시작해요], how come it is modified to si-ja-jae-yo? Is it when g+h it becomes a j sound?

    3/ The quiz. This is all I can get [오늘부터일요일저녁에까지예요] What is missing there?

    Many thanks!

  • Sean G

    금요일에서 일요일까지 서울에 왈 거예요.

    [From Friday to Sunday I will come to Seoul.]

    Is this correct? Would a different verb choice sound more natural, like 가다 or 있다?

    I have a question:
    Instead of saying ‘wolyo-il’ for 월요일, I often heard Korean people said ‘wolyol-lal’ which confused me at first… I am wondering should I stick to the ‘wolyo-il’ pronunciation or should I try to sound more natural by saying ‘wolyol-lal’.. Is it a kind of dialect or is it a slang word or something?
    And THANK YOU very muuuuuuch because your lessons here help me A LOT to communicate better in Korean.. :D

  • Dana

    Hi ! I think you have to update the twitter accounts, I couldn’t find neither 우란’s nor 조혜진’s ):

  • Rishabh Manocha
