Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Kyejin: 여보세요(yeoboseyo.) is the greeting used in telephone conversations. As for ending a phone conversation, it is not typical in Korean to say “goodbye”. Instead, they will say something like 네, 알겠어요.(ne, algesseoyo.) or 알겠습니다.(algetsseumnida.) meaning "Okay." or "All right."

Outro

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

Hi 사스키아~,


Thanks for posting. When you call someone on the phone requesting to speak to someone, you would usually add 'ssi' to the full name to be polite, or, if you are friends, omit the last name and just say the name.


박지민 집에 있습니까?

-->박지민씨 집에 계십니까?

-->지민이 집에 있습니까?


Cheers,
