Now that we have learned the two different number systems in Korean, it is time to talk about the time!Through this lesson, learn how to ask and tell the time in Korean! In Korean, you use the native Korean numbers to tell the time, and the sino-Korean numbers to tell the minute. Find out more about how to go about doing this by listening to the lesson.



Talk to our friends in Korean!

And we have two 질문 [jil-mun] for you!

1. What did 영주 say at the end? And what does it mean in English?

2. What time is it right now in your city? Write the time in the comment using Korean, not the numbers. ; )

Thank you!
