Lesson Transcript

여러분, 안녕하세요? 에이미에요. Hi, everybody! I’m Amy.
Welcome back to KoreanClass101.com’s 삼분 한국어, the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Korean.
In the last lesson, we covered how to express our own opinions using 좋아요 and 싫어요, meaning "I like it" and "I don’t like it." In this lesson we will learn how to ask for directions.
Do you remember what this means,
근처에 뭐가 있어요? what is there nearby?
So this time, we will learn what the answers would be!
Let’s start with the basic directions!
First we have "go straight."
In Korean, "go straight" is 쭉 가세요.
쭉 means "straight," and 가세요 is a polite command to go.
[slow] 쭉 가세요.
Now let's learn "Turn right." In Korean that's
오른쪽으로 가세요.
오른쪽 means "right."
으로 means "toward."
And 가세요, as I’m sure you know, means “Please go.”
All together, "go right" is 오른쪽으로 가세요.
To say "go left," Only switch 오른쪽 to 왼쪽. 왼쪽 is “left” in Korean. So "go left" is
왼쪽으로 가세요.
[once more, normal speed] 왼쪽으로 가세요.
Stoplights are good landmarks, so let's try saying "Go right at the light."
신호에서 오른쪽으로 가세요.
신호 is Korean for "signal." As in, "traffic signal."
You can also tell people to turn at other landmarks, such as an intersection, 사거리, or crosswalk ,횡단 보도.
사거리에서 오른쪽으로 가세요.
횡단 보도에서 오른쪽으로 가세요.
To say that a destination is "on the right," we say
오른쪽에 있어요.
On the other hand, "It's on the left" would be
왼쪽에 있어요.
You can also say that something will "appear" on the right or left, especially if this thing is not the final destination but a landmark en route to that destination.
오른쪽에 학교가 나와요.
"A school will appear on your right."
Maybe the final destination is past the school, but seeing the school means the person is on the right track.
나와요 means "will appear."
오른쪽에 학교가 나와요.
Now it’s time for Amy's insights:
When giving directions, you can also use 앞 ("in front of"), 옆 ("next to"), and 뒤 ("behind"). Just put the word after the object it references and stick an 에 after it. "Behind the school," for example, would be 학교 뒤에.
That's it for today! In this lesson we learned a lot of phrases to use when dealing with directions. In the next lesson, we are going to learn how to ask for the time.
I’ll be waiting for you in our next 삼분 한국어 lesson!
여러분, 안녕히 계세요! 다음에 봐요!

Hi Cheyenne, Colin,

Thanks for posting. Cheyenne, Colin gave you some good answers. If you want to say ‘First’, you could say ‘먼저/일단/우선’, then if you want to give additional directions you would say ‘그 다음에 (afterward)’. Lastly would be ‘마지막으로’ but usually when you give directions you would just continue to say ‘after that’ until you explain the final destination.

Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.
Best,
Lyn

Cheyenne,

First is usually “먼저 ” or “일단” but when explaining direction this is usually omitted.

Then (literally “and then/after that”) - 그다음에
Finally/lastly - “마지막에(눈)”

그러다가 - and then (when explaining the consequence of something)

How would you say…. “First”, “Second” etc… as well as “Then” so you can say “First, Go straight.” or something like that…. Thank you!

Page 3 of notes should read “There is a school on/to the right”, but the notes say “There is school on right side”. There are missing articles.
