Intermediate Season 2
Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! What is that on your plate? You've seen some strange things served as meals since you've moved to Korea, but this one takes the cake. Maybe it's because you're in a Korean mess hall and expectations are low, but you're pretty sure something may have just moved. Or maybe you're just exhausted from the long march you had to do through the Korean wilderness today. Either way, you ask your tablemate in Korean, "Hey, would you take a look at my plate and tell me what this is?" Your tablemate responds in Korean, "I've never seen anything like that before, but I got it too." You look at his plate, and it looks much the same as yours. You ask him in Korean, "Have you tried it yet?" He replies in Korean, "Yes, and more or less, it tastes like chicken." You've heard that one before, and you're not buying it. You decide to stick with the other Korean side items you can discern on your plate and hope dessert is good...

Intermediate Lesson S2 #24 - Work Hard in Korea “So You Won’t” Have Any Regrets!

Intermediate Season 2
Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! Action and reaction...isn't that one of the laws of physics we learned in grade school? Well, in life in Korea, you've learned that every action you take provokes a reaction, whether good or bad, from your girlfriend. So if you're late to pick her up when you plan a date in Korea, you better have a good reason and call ahead. And when you forget to do something, you have to make it up to her by buying her a Korean trinket so you won't be in the doghouse. So this time, when you are finally getting some time off in Korea to spend with her, you want to make sure everything is right. You decide to plan everything advance and you set up reservations at her favorite Korean restaurant, buy tickets to the Korean show she's been wanting to see, and you even arrange transportation. You try to think of every last detail to please her so you won't run into any pouting on your date (or hearing complaints in Korean about it later). As you run through your plans in your mind, suddenly you slap yourself on the forehead and say to yourself in Korean, "I better bring her flowers to prevent her from complaining that she never gets them later." Learning Korean with KoreanClass101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Korean! This Korean Intermediate lesson will teach you how to say the Korean phrases that relate to warnings and prevention. For example, you will learn the Korean phrase that means "so you won't" and to "prevent something from happening."

Intermediate Lesson S2 #23 - You’re Finally in Korea, So Make the Memory Last!

Intermediate Season 2
Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! You've arrived in Korea, and everything is just as you expected it, except for one thing. The person you came to visit, your husband, is behaving oddly. Maybe it's because he's in his military frame of mind, but he keeps answering you with varying degrees of formality, including saying "yes, ma'am" in Korean in response to your questions. You ask him in Korean, "What's up?" but he just responds in Korean with, "Nothing's wrong, ma'am." While you wish he'd be this polite at home when you ask him to do chores around the house, it's odd that he's being so formal while you're just having an ordinary Korean conversation now. So to turn the tables, you start thinking of your honey-do list and the things you want to buy and mention them in Korean. You tell him in Korean, "You're being so agreeable today that I think I'll buy that purse I've been wanting for a while." He doesn't offer any response, so you continue in Korean, "And how about if we spend a little money and fix up the back yard that our dog tore up last year with some new plants and a new shed for your tools?" We'll see how long he keeps saying "yes, ma'am" in Korean now! Learning Korean with KoreanClass101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Korean! This Korean Intermediate lesson will teach you how to express a link between two actions. For example, if you study Korean with KoreanClass101, you'll learn Korean quickly and painlessly!

Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! Well, everyone tried to warn your cousin about joining the military in Korea. It's the same everywhere. You learn a lot in the military about respect, honor, being responsible - you know...the normal rhetoric. But tonight, he came home very upset, ranting to everyone in Korean, "My Corporal yelled at me all day yesterday until I thought my ears would bleed!" Your father (a Korean army retiree) asked your cousin in Korean, "Well, you must have done something to deserve it son! He must have told you repeatedly to do something almost to the point of ridiculous!" Your cousin, looking a little ashamed now, tried to explain in Korean, "It's just that I have never done laundry before...so he has told me over and over until he says his head hurts now. He wants me to keep doing laundry every night until I learn to do it correctly!" Now, he has the attention of his father and mother too! His father speaks up from across the room and says in Korean, "Well, no son of mine is going to make a Corporal speak until his head hurts! Now son you can do the laundry every night at home, too, so that you learn to get it right!" Great, this is almost to the point of hilarity!!

Intermediate Season 2
Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! It's always fun, at least at first, to break the rules. But when you're caught and trouble catches up with you, even in Korea, it's time to suck it up and deal with the consequences. You listen patiently as your superior tells you in Korean all the things you shouldn't do. As your boss drones on, the way he is listing things in Korean almost forms a song. As you drift in and out of paying attention to his Korean lecture, you suddenly hear him say in Korean, "You shouldn't sleep at night." What? He already caught you catching a nap and told you earlier in his diatribe in Korean, "You can't take an afternoon nap." You wonder to yourself in Korean, "If I can never sleep, how much caffeine should he buy for me?" Your superior responds in Korean, "What was that?" Oops, did you just say that aloud? Learning Korean with KoreanClass101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn Korean!
