Hi Listeners! What is your favorite Family Member word? Let us know!
Both 자식 and 아이 mean ‘child’, with 자식 having the meaning of ‘my child’, and ‘아이’ meaning ‘child’ in general(you can use it to refer to not just your own child but for others too). So while the example is different, you can use both words when discussing ‘children’.
As for sister, if the siblings are both girls, the younger child will refer to the older sister as 언니, if the younger sibling is a boy, he will refer to his older sister as 누나.
Hi! Another question, I’m sorry 😅
Why does “sister” have two different words?
I have a question
In the very first word, child, it says it’s 자식, but why doesn’t it appear on the example?
Thank you! xoxo
Thank you for posting! You don’t need spacing between the syllables:
Thanks for posting. Aunt(maternal) is ‘이모’, and aunt(paternal) is ‘고모’.
Hi! Just noticed that you don’t have the word for aunt!
