Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: I don't like. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to say that you don't like something in Korean.
Body
Becky: Here's the informal way to say 'I don't like chocolate.' in Korean.

Becky: First is a word meaning 'chocolate'
Kyejin: [Normal] 초콜릿 [Slow] 초콜릿 (chokolit)
Becky: Next is the object marking particle
Kyejin: [Normal] 을 [Slow] 을(eul)
Becky: Last is the phrase meaning 'I do not like'
Kyejin: [Normal] 좋아하지 않아요 [Slow] 좋아하지 않아요(joahaji anayo)
Becky: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning 'I don't like chocolate.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 초콜릿을 좋아하지 않아요. [Normal] 초콜릿을 좋아하지 않아요.
Becky: Ok, now let's see the formal way to say 'I don't like waiting.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 기다리는 것을 좋아하지 않습니다.(gidarineun geoseul joahaji ansseumnida.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'waiting'
Kyejin: [Normal] 기다리는 것 [Slow] 기다리는 것 (gidarineun geot)

Becky: And last is the phrase meaning 'I do not like'
Kyejin: [Normal] 좋아하지 않습니다 [Slow] 좋아하지 않습니다(joahaji ansseumnida)
Becky: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning 'I don't like waiting.'
Kyejin: [Slow] 기다리는 것을 좋아하지 않습니다. [Normal] 기다리는 것을 좋아하지 않습니다.
Becky: Following is the informal way to say 'I hate chocolate.'
Kyejin: [Normal] 초콜릿을 싫어해요.(chokoliseul sireohaeyo.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'chocolate'
Kyejin: [Normal] 초콜릿 [Slow] 초콜릿(chokolit)

Kyejin: [Normal] 기다리는 것 [Slow] 기다리는 것(gidarineun geot)

Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Kyejin: Can you say you don't like something without really saying it? In Korean, you can! Here are some indirect ways to express that you don't like something. 글쎄요(geulsseyo.) meaning "Well" and 그건 좀(geugeon jom) meaning "That's a little..." are frequently used phrases to show disapproval.

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 Listeners! Try translating this: 'I don't like exams.'

Hi Katrien,


Thanks for posting. This is because particles are commonly omitted in colloquial Korean. This is also why knowing particles is important, so you can figure out/assume what has been omitted.

There is a lesson series on particles that will be of help:

Why is there no object-marking particle in 초콜릿 좋아하세요??

Hi Rina,


Thanks for posting, great effort!. Taking a test in Korean is "시험을 보다"

so it would be:


시험 보는 것을 좋아하지 않아요.


Cheers,

Hi Denise,


In the previous lesson, the object marking particle 을/를 was omitted as it usually is in colloquial Korean. There would be no problem in adding it to the sentence. And in the case of dislike, it could be omitted here as well:


--> 초콜릿 싫어해요.


Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Best,

Lyn

Hello -

This lesson used the object marking particles, though the previous lesson about "likes" did not. Is there a reason for the difference?

Thanks!
