Debbie: Hello, and welcome back to the KoreanPOD101.com , the fastest, easiest and most fun way to learn Korean! I'm joined in the studio by...
Tim: Hello everyone. Tim here.
Debbie: 안녕하세요 KoreanClass101.com listeners. I am joined in the studio by...
Tim: (목소리를 가다듬으며 조금 딱딱한 말투로) 흠.흠.. Tim! 여러분 안녕하세요!
Debbie: Tim, you sound different today. Is something wrong?
Tim: (아직도 딱딱한 말투로) Nothing is wrong. I am just trying to be formal with everyone.
Debbie: Hmm... (천천히 또박또박 They've learned both 그럼 and 나도 from previous lessons) 그럼, 나도... (딱딱하고 경직된 말투로) 팀씨, 안녕하세요 그리고 여러분 안녕하세요?
Tim: No, no!! That sounds too strange! 에이~~ (활기찬 목소리로) 여러분 방가 방가, 팀 입니다. Try saying it like that.
Debbie: (활기차게) 여러분 방가 방가, 데비 입니다. Does that sound better?
Tim: Yes! Much better!
Debbie: All right. So what are we learning today?
Tim: Today's lesson is on "Counting Units used with Pure-Korean Numbers".
Debbie: We've learned about "Pure-Korean Numbers" in Absolute Beginner Season 2 Lesson 8. So, today's lesson is sort of a review of that. Right, Tim?
Tim: Yes! I know that remembering those counting units is quite challenging for many listeners. So that's why I made this lesson.
Debbie: Great! And we will also learn how to say, "as many as" or "as much as", and "how many?" in Korean. Where does this conversation take place?
Tim: At the swimming pool - 수영장에서.
Debbie: The conversation is between...
Tim: Tim and Sujin.
Debbie: Since this conversation is between two friends, the speakers will use informal Korean.
Tim: 반말 입니다.
Debbie: Let's listen to the conversation.

Debbie(At Caribbean Bay) (Tim and Sujin)
팀: 와~ 비키니 입은 여자가... 한 명, 두 명, 세 명, 네 명, 다섯 명, 여섯 명, 일곱 명, 여덟 명, 아홉 명, 열 명, 열한 명, 열두 명! 열두 명이나 있네!

Debbie: How many chairs are there?
수진: 한 개, 두 개, 세 개, 네 개... 음... 한 백 개 정도 있어.
Debbie: One, two, three, four... Hmmm...there are approximately one hundred chairs.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Debbie: Can I ask you something?
Tim: Sure, anything.
Debbie: In Korea, is it common for females to wear bikinis at the swimming pool?
Tim: It wasn't common at all in the past, but that's definitely changing now.
Debbie: Hmm... interesting!
Tim: When I was very young, almost no one wore bikinis at the swimming pool.
Debbie: But now...?
Tim: It's a different story. Women can wear whatever they want.
Debbie: Listeners, as you guys just heard from Tim, if you plan to visit Korea in summer, you don't have to worry about what you are going to wear at a swimming pool or at any beach in Korea.
Tim: Debbie, why don't we give KoreanClass101.com listeners some tips about summer vacation in Korea?
Debbie: Great idea, Tim! (흥분하기 시작하며..) "This is..."
Tim: 두두두두...
Debbie: (더 흥분을 하며) "Exclusively for..."
Tim: 두두두두...
Debbie: "KoreanClass101.com listeners!"
Tim: 빰빠라 빰~~! Tip #1 - Bring sunscreen! It's very hot and sunny in the summer, so make sure you have sunscreen with you.
Debbie: Tip #2 - Don't worry about what to wear at a swimming pool or at the beach. Any bathing suit or bikini should be fine.
Tim: Tip #3 - Bring lots and lots of water! Also, I wouldn't drink the water from any public washroom.
Debbie: Tip #4 - If it is really hot, go into any bank or department store. They always have the air conditioning on and it will help you cool down. And lastly...
Tim: Visit "Caribbean Bay".
Debbie: You can't forget that! Okay, now let's move on to the lesson vocabulary.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Debbie: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Debbie: Let's have a closer look at the usage of some words from this lesson. The first word is...?
Tim: 이.나 - 이나
Debbie: Meaning "as many as" or "as much as". It's often used when emphasizing the amount of something.
Tim: The formation goes like this. Pure-Korean Numbers + Counting units + 이나 ina "as many as"
Debbie: Which means, "as many as 3 times". Can you give us some examples, Tim?
Tim: (천천히 또박또박) 나는 밥을 하루에 5번이나 먹습니다 "I eat meals as many as (강조하며) "five" times a day."
Debbie: 하하~~
나는 - the subject, "I"
밥을 - the object, "meal"
하루에 - the adverb, "a day"
다섯 - "five"
번 - "times"
이나 - "as many as"
먹습니다 - the verb, "to eat"
So altogether...
Tim: 나는 밥을 하루에 5번이나 먹습니다.
Debbie: Here's one more example - (천천히 또박또박) 7명이나 있습니다 - "There are as many as seven people."
Tim: 일곱 - "seven"
명 - "people"
이나 - "as many as"
있습니다 - "there are"
So altogether it becomes 일곱명이나 있습니다.
Debbie: Please repeat after Tim. What is "I eat meals (강조하며) "as many as" five times a day" in Korean?
Tim: (천천히 또박또박) 나는 밥을 하루에 다섯번"이나" 먹습니다.
Debbie: Please repeat after Tim. What is "There are (강조하며) "as many as" seven people" in Korean?
Tim: (천천히 또박또박) 일곱명이나 있습니다.
Debbie: Great! Finally, we have...
Tim: 몇. 개. 있.어? - 몇 개 있어?
Debbie: Meaning, "How many items are there?" It's used when asking about the number of (강조하며) "items".
Tim: 몇 - "How many"
개 - "items"
있어? - "is there / are there?" (it's casual form of 있.습.니.까?)
So all together it becomes 몇 개 있어?
Debbie: Let's practice that again. Please repeat after Tim. What's "How many items are there?" in informal Korean?
Tim: 몇 개 있어?
[pause]
Debbie: What's "How many items are there?" in formal Korean?
Tim: 몇 개 있습니까?
[pause]
Debbie: Excellent! Now let's move on to the lesson focus!

Lesson focus

Debbie: The focus of this lesson is about "Counting Units used with Pure-Korean Numbers".
Tim: Let's review the "Pure-Korean Numbers" first.
Debbie: Let's separate the numbers into two groups, "1 to 5" and "6 to 10". Please repeat after Tim.
Tim: 하나. 둘. 셋. 넷. 다섯
[pause 3 sec]
Tim: 여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열
[pause 3 sec]
Debbie: Great! This time, lets start from 1 and go all the way to 10 without stopping in between! Are you guys ready? Please repeat after Tim.
Tim: 하나, 둘, 셋, 넷, 다섯, 여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열!
[pause 5 sec]
Debbie: Excellent! We've learned about one of the Counting Units, 시 "o'clock" through Absolute Beginner Season 2, lesson 8. Today, we are going to learn and practice with two more counting units, either with 명 or 사람 for "people" and 개 for "items".
Tim: The formation goes like this
Debbie: Sure. What's "3 people" in Korean?
Tim: 세 is 'three" , and 명 or 사람 is "people" - So "three people" would either be 세 명 or 세 사람.
Debbie: What's "11 people" in Korean?
Tim: 열 한 is "eleven", and 명 or 사람 is "people" - So "eleven people" would be 열 한 명 or 열 한 사람.
Debbie: Okay listeners. We will give you numbers and a counting unit for "people" in Korean. Can you guys say it in Korean? Here we go.
Tim: Five people. Remember that "five" is 다섯.
[pause]
Debbie: The answer is...
Tim: 다섯 명 or 다섯 사람.
Debbie: Okay this time, let's try thirteen people.
Tim: Remember that thirteen is 열 셋.
[pause]
Debbie: The answer is...
Tim: 열세 명 or 열세 사람.
Debbie: Great!
Tim: Now let's practice with 개 "items".
Debbie: Two items.
Tim: Remember that two is 둘.
[pause]
Debbie: The answer is...
Tim: 두 개. How about fourteen items? Remember that fourteen is 열 넷.
[pause]
Debbie: The answer is...
Tim: 열네 개.
Debbie: Great. This time let's make simple sentences with 'Pure-Korean Numbers and Counting Units'.
Listeners, let's do it together. How would you say "There are 9 people over there." in Korean?
Tim: Well, "there are" is 있.습.니.다 in Korean and "over there" is 저.기.에 in Korean, and simply add "nine people" 아홉 명 or 아홉 사람.
Debbie: So altogether it becomes...
Tim: 저기에 아홉명이 있습니다 or 저기에 아홉사람이 있습니다.
Debbie: Great! This time... Let's try "How many apples are there?" in Korean?
Tim: "How many" is 몇 개 and "are there" is 있습니까?, and "apples" are 사과 in Korean.
Debbie: So altogether it becomes...
Tim: 사과가 몇개 있습니까? "How many apples are there?"
Debbie: (윗 문장에 대답을 하며) "There are as many as eight apples."
Tim: (천천히 또박 또박) 사과가 여덟개나 있습니다. Please repeat after me.
(또박또박 천천히) 사과가 여덟개나 있습니다.
[pause]
Debbie: Excellent! Well, that's all for this lesson. Please take a look at the lesson notes for a more detailed explanation on the counting units used with Pure-Korean Numbers. Keep up the great work and we'll see you next time!
Tim: Can I say something - very quickly?
Debbie: What Tim?
Tim: I am going back to Korea.
Debbie: Really!?
Tim: 뻥이야!
Debbie: 하하 팀! You scared me! 그럼 여러분 안녕~!
Tim: 재밌게 한국어 공부 하세요~!

Hi Ruby,


Thanks for posting. The particle 를 was omitted, it should be 비키니(를) 입은 여자(bikini-clad women).

Regarding your second question, 한 is used to say 'approximately', so in this case, 한 백 개 would mean 'approximately one hundred'.


Hope this helped!

Best,

In the last line, why is it 한 백 instead of just 백?

In the first line of the dialogue, why isn't 여자가 the first word in the sentence before 비키니?

Hello 단,


Thank you for posting.

When 네 follows other vowels rather than 이다/다(is) it is attached after the verb stem. So when you look at 있다, which means 'is there', you omit 'da' and add 'ne', which becomes 있네.

As for the subject marking particles, 이 follows words that end with consonants, and 가 after vowels, as you can see in the sample sentences.


Hope this was of help!

Best,

안녕하세요!

In previous posts you mentioned ~네(used after words that end with vowels), and ~이네(used after words that end with consonants)

Then what about... 열두 명이나 있네.


Another question is...

여기에 3사람이 있습니다.

개가 11마리 있습니다.

Why the first one uses 이 and the second uses 가 ?

Hi 칼,


Thanks for posting. Both mean 'women' in general, but to break it down, 여성 is a woman who has reached adult age, and 여자 refers to someone who was born as a female. So it is a bit tricky, but generally we use 여자 when referring to 'women', and 여성 when we are referring to one's 'sex' (male or female).

Hope this was of help.


Best,
