Hi Rachel,

Thank you for posting, and your question is not stupid at all! We are here to help you out if you have any questions, so feel free to ask away anytime! 😄

And to answer your question, 이에요 is used without any emotions, and more of a statement, whereas ‘이네요’ implies mild surprise, which is stated almost casually. For example:

오랜만이에요 (It’s been a while.)
오랜만이네요 (Wow, it has been a while.)

Hope this made sense. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries!

Best,
Lyn

I was just wondering what the difference is between 오랜만이에요 (Oraenmanieyo) vs 오랜만이네요 (Oraenmanineyo)? Is it a difference in the tense of the sentence/statement or have I just not gotten to the lesson that would answer my stupid question? ^^”

Hi Tana,

Thank you for posting.
Yes, you can use ‘밥 먹었어요?’ as a greeting only if you have met someone around breakfast/lunch/dinner time. Same goes for ‘어디 가니?’, which would only be used if you meet someone on the street/outside and you notice that they are on their way somewhere.

Sincerely,
Lyn

Can i download the audios?

Someone mentioned that asking 밥을 먹겄어요? (Have you eaten yet?) as well as 어디 가니? (Where are you going?) are also used as informal greetings. Is that true?

Hi gb,

We use it often to call a friend : ) That’s a friendly expression.

Thank you for asking,

야 - Really? Not in a friendly context!
