Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Korean Season 1, Lesson 2 - Greetings. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to greet someone in Korean.
Body
Becky: Here's the informal way to say 'Hi.' in Korean.
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕.(annyeong.)
Becky: This expression has only one word meaning 'Hi'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕 [Slow] 안녕 (annyeong)
Becky: Listen again to the informal expression meaning 'Hi.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 안녕. [Normal] 안녕.
Becky: Ok, now let's see the formal way to say 'Good day.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕하세요.(annyeonghaseyo)
Becky: This expression has only one word literally meaning 'Hello.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕하세요 [Slow] 안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo)
Becky: Listen again to the formal expression meaning 'Good day.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 안녕하세요. [Normal] 안녕하세요.
Becky: Following is the formal way to say 'Goodbye.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕히 가세요. (annyeonghi gaseyo.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'peacefully'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕히 [Slow] 안녕히(annyeonghi)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'go'
Kyejin: [Normal] 가세요 [Slow] 가세요(gaseyo)
Becky: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning 'Goodbye.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 안녕히 가세요. [Normal] 안녕히 가세요.
Becky: Finally, here is a formal way to say 'Goodbye.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕히 계세요.(annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'peacefully'
Kyejin: [Normal] 안녕히 [Slow] 안녕히(annyeonghi)
Becky: Last is the word meaning ‘stay'
Kyejin: [Normal] 계세요 [Slow] 계세요(gyeseyo)
Becky: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning 'Goodbye.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 안녕히 계세요. [Normal] 안녕히 계세요.
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Kyejin: In formal Korean, there are two ways to say goodbye, one for the person who is leaving and the other for the person who is staying. If you are the one leaving, you say 안녕히 계세요(annyeonghi gyeseyo.) meaning "Stay well." Then the other person will respond by saying 안녕히 가세요(annyeonghi gaseyo.) meaning "Go well."

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!

Hi Voss,


Thanks for posting. Just like people who learn English for the first time, you need to know the basic vocabulary, the conjugation, and the pronunciation. First, you need to not try to fit the Korean pronunciation into the way the English alphabet is pronounced, as there are no exact equivalents, the romanization is only there to help you try to figure out how things are pronounced. So while the consonant ㅂ is romanized as 'b', it is actually a sound between the 'b' and 'p' sounds. You also need to know the vocabulary and the grammar to figure things out. 안녕 is a noun meaning 'am well'. Add the verb '하다' and it becomes 'to be well'. So try to expand your vocabulary and listen to the native speakers as much as possible, and it will get easier.

안녕하세요,

So very sorry for how long my question is... this is just a continuation of my other 2 (So help would really be appreciated..) only reason why I haven't paid to get a teacher to teach me is because I'm only 14 and my mom doesn't want to pay for it and I don't have money or a say, if possible I would like to be able to study a different way because I think a personal teacher would not only help me to stay more consistent but also to remember better and to learn faster)

안녕하세요,

(Sorry that it's so long of a question but I'm just a bit confused and I've been trying to practice at home by myself but I can't because when I write things I know how to read and pronounce it (I've just about mastered that thanks to one of your videos from YouTube ) but I have no idea of rather or not it's not just a random made up word or rather it's a real word and I don't know what the word is if it is a word.

안녕하세요,

One thing that I'm slightly confused on is.. how do you make an actual word in Korean, like how in English p in park would make perfect since right..in Hangul there's a p symbol but instead of using P to spell park you use a B.. and how do you know that what you put together when studying alone using the written version (Hangul) that whatever it is that you mixed together is a word and not just something dumb and weird.. and how do you know what it means like for example annyeonghaseo means hello but I'd I wrote that and didn't get told that's what it means how would I know that that word means hello and not just a sound?

안녕히 가세요 is used by a person who's sending someone off

안녕히 계세요 is used by a person who's leaving

Hi Julie,


Thank you for posting. 안녕 means 'to be at peace'. So by changing the endings, you are wishing someone well (as you leave them, or they leave you, or when you are asking if they are at peace).

Glad to hear that our lesson was helpful in getting the meaning down!

Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.


Best,

안녕하세요,


I knew 안녕하세요 and 안녕. I had also heard 안녕히 가세요 and 안녕히 계세요 I think on one of the Innovative Language app Korean lessons or another resource I checked out from the library, was reminded of their meaning, and see how to spell them as well.


Thank you for the lesson, (how would I say that in Korean?)

Hi Lhian!


Thank you for your comment.

Your name in Hangul would be 리안(li-an).

Hope this helps you.

Please let us know if you have any other question. Thanks!
