Welcome to the 17th episode of “How Do You Say This in Korean?”! In this series, teacher 경화 (Kyung-hwa) is joined by a co-host of her choice twice a month to answer some listener questions. The questions we will be answering in this series are mainly about how to say certain things in Korean.
In this episode, Hyojin and Hyunwoo introduce animal similes in Korean to help you understand what it means when you hear someone say things such as, “that girl is like a fox,” “that man is like a wolf,” “he/she eats like a pig,” or “children are like chicks.”
Hi, everyone! 오랜만이에요! (It’s been a while!)
It’s been nearly 1년 (year) since our last Learn Korean with K-Pop blog post, and we think it’s high time we get back to it! Learn Korean with K-pop is a blog series that will introduce various vocabulary and phrases found in K-pop lyrics. Listening to music and studying the lyrics is a great way to support learning a language, but it’s not always the most useful way to study since the lyrics are, sometimes, not very practical and are often poetic.
Have you ever experienced a long-distance relationship? Many of the TalkToMeInKorean Staff either have been or are currently in a long-distance relationship, with one person in one country and the other person in another. Since this is a very common conversational topic, 석진 and 효진 decided to sit down to talk a little bit about their own experiences of dating someone who is living far away.
In this series, you can learn along side Terris as Seokjin teaches him some phrases in 경상도 사투리, the dialect spoken by people from the Gyeongsang Province area, which includes cities like 대구, 부산, 마산, 포항, 경주, etc.
In the first lesson, learn how to say “Is that so?” or “Really?” in the 경상도 사투리 (Gyeongsang Province dialect).
