If you’re on my Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know I’m kind of caught up in the recent K-wave. But truth to be told, I’ve always wanted to take up Korean since secondary school. While everyone was going gaa-gaa over Japanese, my heart was set on learning Korean.
It got put off cause I didn’t have the resources and even in university, I can never get a slot for the elusive Korean 101 lessons.
So, I think I am going to sign up for Korean lessons at NUS Nex on 2nd Sept! Join me if you want! But I think I am going to pick up some stuff from podcast, iPod Touch applications and Youtube week by week. Might as well share it! 😀
Here’s the first one! Correct me if I am wrong (:
Days of the week:
Monday (wol-yo-it): wolyoil 월요일
Phrases for the week:
Good morning/afternoon/Hello (an-nyong-ha-sae-yo): annyeonghaseyo 안녕하세요
Good bye (an-nyong-e-kah-se-yo): annyeonghikaseyo 안녕히 가세요
Apparently, there’s 2 ways of saying goodbye. One is when the person is leaving, the other is when you are leaving. I couldn’t figure out the other and after youtube-ing it, I think the one above works just fine (:
Oh and just like Japanese, there’s formal and informal. Therefore, the informal way of saying both the phrase is an-nyong.
Yups! That’s it from me this week! An-nyong! 😀
