Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone, I am Jaehwi Lee. In this video, we will be talking about ten lines you need for introducing yourself. Let’s begin.
제 이름은 민준입니다. (Je ireumeun minjunimnida.) My name is Minjun.
So like this way, you can say 제 이름은 ... (Je ireumeun...) my name is, your name 입니다. (imnida.) to be. My name is Jaehwi Lee, so I can say 제 이름은 재휘입니다. (Je ireumeun jaehwiimnida.) or with my family name, I can say제 이름은 이재휘입니다. (Je ireumeun ijaehwiimnida.) So when you introduce yourself in Korean, make sure you say family name first and then your first name.
서울에 살고 있습니다. (Seoure salgo itsseumnida.) I live in Seoul.
So you can put any city’s name. For example, if you are living in New York City, you can say 뉴욕시에 살고 있습니다. (Nyuyoksie salgo itsseumnida.) I live in New York City.
27살입니다. (Seumurilgop sarimnida.) I am 27 years old.
The basic way to say 27 is 이십칠 (ishipchil) but when you talk about your age, for example 27 years old, you have to use native Korean numbers like in 스물일곱 살 (seumurilgop sal) 27 years old. Not 이십칠살 (ichipchilsal.) Let me pick up some numbers for example if you are 30 year old, you can say 저는 서른 살입니다. (jeoneun seoreun sarimnida.) If you are 20 years old, you can say 저는 스무 살입니다. (jeoneun seumu salimnida.)
한국 사람입니다. (Hanguk saramimnida.) I am from South Korea.
한국 사람입니다. (Hanguk saramimnida.) I am from South Korea or I am South Korean. So I will just put your country’s name instead of 한국 (hanguk) in this sentence. For example, if you are Chinese, you can say 중국 사람입니다. (jungguk saramimnida.) If you are American, you can say 미국 사람입니다. (miguk saramimnida.) 중국 (jungguk) means China and 미국 (miguk) means America and here we have 사람 (saram) means person. So it really means I am a person of Korea. I am a person of China.
교사입니다. (gyosaimnida.) I am a teacher.
For example, if you are a teacher, you can say 교사입니다. (gyosaimnida.) or in some way, you can also say 선생님입니다. (seonsaengnimimnida.) I am a teacher. If you are student, you can say 학생입니다. (haksaengimnida.) I am a student.
독서는 제 취미 중 하나입니다. (Dokseoneun je chwimi jung hanaimnida.) One of my hobbies is reading.
If you like drawing you can say 그리기는 제 취미 중 하나입니다. (geurigineun je chwimi jung hanaimnida) or just to make it simple, you can say 그리기는 제 취미입니다. (geurigineun je chwimiimnida) which means that my hobby is drawing.
음악 감상을 즐깁니다. (Eumak gamsangeul jeulgimnida. ) I enjoy listening to music.
음악 감상을 (eumak gamsangeul) means listening to music or music listening literally. So you can just put something else. For me, I can say 여행을 즐깁니다. (yeohaeng-eul jeulgimnida.) I enjoy traveling.
한국어를 일 년째 공부하고 있습니다. (Hangugeoreul il nyeonjjae gongbuhago itsseumnida. ) I have been learning Korean for one year.
So if you speak Korean to Korean people in Korea, they will be surprised. I will be surprised if someone suddenly talks to me in Korean, then you get asked 한국어 얼마나 공부했어요? (hangugeo eolmana gongbuhasseoyo?) How long have you studied Korean and if you just started studying Korean, you can say 한국어를 한 달째 공부하고 있습니다. (hangogeoreul han daljjae gongbuhago isseumnida.) I have been studying Korean for one month.
안녕하세요. 만나서 반갑습니다. (Annyeonghaseyo. Mannaseo bangapsseumnida.) Hello it’s nice to meet you.
In general like if you meet someone before you talk about your name or after you talk about your name, you can say 안녕하세요. 만나서 반갑습니다. (annyeonghaseyo. mannaseo bangapseumnida.) Hello it’s nice to meet you or if you know the other person is younger than you or you know, you just want to be a little bit more casual, you can say 안녕. 만나서 반가워. (annyeong. mannaseo bangawo.)
KoreanClass101.com에서 한국어를 배우고 있습니다. (Koriankeullaeseuwonowondatkeomeseo hangugeoreul baeugo itsseumnida.) I am studying Korean at koreanclass101.com,
so if people ask you where did you learn Korean from and you can proudly say that 에서 한국어를 배우고 있습니다. (Koriankeullaeseuwonowondatkeomeseo hangugeoreul baeugo itsseumnida.) or if you are learning Korean at a language school, you can say that 어학원에서 한국어를 배우고 있습니다. (eohagwoneseo hangugeoreul baewugo isseumnida.) I am learning Korean at a language school.
Okay that’s all ten lines you need for introducing yourself. Listen comments and introduce yourself using one of the expressions that we introduced in this video. Make sure to subscribe and I will see you next time 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다 (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida) 안녕히 계세요. (annyeonghi gyeseyo.)

안녕. 제이름은 김파울이에요.스물일곱 살입니다. 파주시에 살고 있습니다. 영어교사입니다. 한국어를 일년째 공부하고 있습니다, 군대 한글 말할 수 없다.

-->안녕하세요. 제 이름은 폴 김이에요. 스물일곱 살입니다. 파주시에 살고 있고 영어교사입니다. 일년 째 한국어를 공부하고 있는데 한국어로 말할 수가 없어요.


Your written Korean is pretty good, is it speaking that you are having trouble with? As you live in Korea, try to talk with your coworkers or other native Koreans as much as possible! We also have various lessons focused on daily conversation so please go through the lesson archives to see what may be of help to you.


Cheers,
