What does "여보세요" mean?
Tim:
It's "Hello", used when talking on the phone.
Debbie:
Yes. When asking or answering the telephone, or when you're trying to get the attention of someone, you would say,
Tim:
(또박 또박 한 글자씩) 여.보.세.요.
Debbie:
Tim, that doesn't sound natural. We need to hear you speaking Korean naturally, right you guys?
Tim:
Okay. (여전히 뭔가 딱딱한...) 여보세요.
Debbie:
Tim, when you received my call, you sounded totally different. I want.. no! We want to hear you say it like that!
Tim:
Okay... (완전 자연스럽고 재밌게) 여보세요?
Debbie:
하하! That's the one! By the way, instead of 여보세요 "hello", can we say, "who's there"?
Tim:
That would be 누구세요?
Debbie:
One more time please...
Tim:
누.구.세.요 - 누구세요.
Debbie:
(실망스러운 목소리와 재밌는 목소리를 원하며) Tim...!!!
Tim:
Okay. (완전 재밌게) 누구세요?
Debbie:
하하! Yes guys, you may use both 여보세요 and 누구세요, but...
Tim:

[pause]
Debbie:
Excellent guys! Now let's move on to the lesson focus!
LESSON FOCUS
Debbie:
The focus of this lesson is "Pure-Korean Numbers".
Tim:
These numbers are used when counting.
Debbie:
Okay. Let's practice them. Listeners, please repeat after Tim from 1 to 10. Ready, Tim?
Tim:
Yes. Here we go.
하나
[pause 1 second]
[pause 1 second]
[pause 1 second]
[pause 1 second]
다섯
[pause 1 second]
여섯
[pause 1 second]
일곱
[pause 1 second]
여덟
[pause 1 second]
아홉
[pause 1 second]
[pause 1 second]
Debbie:
Great! This time, Tim is going to separate them into five groups, "1, 2" and "3, 4" and "5, 6" and "7, 8" and "9, 10". Repeat after Tim.
Tim:
하나, 둘
[pause 2 seconds]
Tim:
셋, 넷
[pause 2 seconds]
Tim:
다섯, 여섯
[pause 2 seconds]
Tim:
일곱, 여덟
[pause 2 seconds]
Tim:
아홉, 열
[pause 2 seconds]
Debbie:
Great! Okay this time, the numbers will be separated into two groups, "1 to 5" and "6 to 10". Please repeat after Tim.
Tim:
하나, 둘, 셋, 넷, 다섯
[pause 3 seconds]
Tim:
여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열
[pause 3 seconds]
Debbie:
Wonderful! This time "from 1 to 10"! Are you guys ready? Please repeat after Tim with a louder voice.
Tim:
하나, 둘, 셋, 넷, 다섯, 여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열!
[pause 5 seconds]
Debbie:
Excellent work, guys! After ten, simply add the number to the word 열, meaning "ten".
Tim:
For example, "eleven" is 열 "ten" + 하나 "one", so together 열. 하.나 - 열 하나.
"twelve" is 열 "ten" + 둘 "two", so together 열. 둘 - 열 둘. and just like that, keep counting.
Debbie:
Tim, can you introduce the four important counting units used with 'Pure-Korean Numbers'?
Tim:
Sure! 사람 "people", 개 "items", 시 "o'clock", and 시간 "hours".
Debbie:
Listeners, please take a look at the lesson notes for a more detailed explanation on the counting units.
Tim:
And please give yourself enough time to look through that. It's very challenging to remember all the counting units.
Debbie:
Okay, we will only be practicing "o'clock" here.
Tim:
It's simple! For example, "5 o'clock" is 다섯 "five" + 시 "o'clock", so it becomes 다.섯. 시 - 다섯 시. How about "10 o'clock", Debbie?
Debbie:
"Ten" is 열 and "o'clock" is 시 in Korean, so it becomes 열. 시 - 열시.
Tim:
Great! But you have to be careful with the numbers from 1 to 4.
Debbie:
Why?
Tim:
When you add a noun or a counting unit to the pure- Korean numbers, 하나 "one" becomes 한. Therefore, "one o'clock" is 한.시 - 한 시 in Korean.
Debbie:
둘 "two" becomes 두. therefore, "two o'clock" is 두.시 - 두 시 in Korean.
Tim:
셋 "three" becomes 세. therefore, "three o'clock" is 세.시 - 세 시 in Korean.
Debbie:
넷 "four" becomes 네. therefore, "four o'clock" is 네.시 - 네 시 in Korean.
Okay listeners, That's all for this lesson. There's a more detailed explanation in the lesson notes, so stop by KoreanClass101.com and pick up the lesson notes. Thank you for listening. See you next time!
Tim:
그럼, 다음 시간까지 안녕~~

Hi Nancy,

Thank you for posting. It looks like there are typos in the flashcards, we will get back to you on correcting them.
Three is like you said–셋/삼, and four is 넷/사.
As for your question, ‘I have a question’ in Korean is ‘질문 있어요’.

Sincerely,
Lyn

I don’t have any questions about writing them in Korean or Sino-Korean. The Hanja (Korean words written with Chinese script) cards that I have say something that confuses me. They have the Korean 석 with the Sino-Korean 삼 for three. Also, they have the Korean 넉 with the Sino-Korean 사 for four. Shouldn’t three be 셋 삼 and four be 넷 사? Why would the numbers 3 and 4 have two different ways to say them in Korean ( 석 for 셋 and 넉for 넷) - not the Sino-Korean삼 사? 😅

안녕하서요! (Hi!)

I have a question. When I go thru my Hanja cards, the Korean numbers for 3 and 4 are 석 and 넉. I thought that 3 and 4 were 셋 and 넷. Are these variations of the Korean numbers? Please answer. Also, how do you say “I have a question.” in Korean.

😛 Hi, Elaine.

Thank you for the comment. With the new flashcards, you can hear the audio for each word by clicking on the ‘Listen’ button on the bottom of each card. You can listen to the audio file first by clicking the button, then check if your guess is right or not in this way.

For the writing answers in Korean, please check your My Settings (It is under the My tools menu) and change the option of the first question to ENglish. Then, you will be prompted to write answers in Korean.

We will be introducing New flashcards 2.0 soon. I believe that you will be able to check new and helpful features for improving your Korean.

Feel free to leave us your feedbacks, please : ) It will be helping us improve our learning system better and efficient. Thank you so much!

Nice and useful lesson. Tim you are a natural teacher and have laid out the lessons well.
I just tried using the flashcards which is what I normally do after finishing a lesson. The flashcards are all different. Is there a way to to do audio flashcards? That was the best and most useful way to do flashcards. The way the cards turn over is also dizzying. Sorry, but the way the flashcards were before was much superior. The other bad change was to take away the lesson review that had you type in Korean.
