Keith: Ok. Let's get right into it. This is the first dialog in the three part series. And in this lesson, what are we going to learn how to say?

DIALOGUE
희연: 엄마, 나 결혼할래.
엄마: 뭐? 언제?
희연: 지금.
엄마: 지금? 넌 지금 6살이야. 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에 결혼해.
희연: 싫어. 지금 결혼할래.
엄마: 안 돼. 희연이가 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에.
희연: 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에? 어떻게 키가 커?
엄마: 엄마처럼 책을 많이 읽어.
희연: 엄마, 엄마 책 안 읽는 거 알아.

Keith: One more time, slowly.

희연: 지금.
Keith: Right now.
엄마: 지금? 넌 지금 6살이야. 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에 결혼해.

희연: 싫어. 지금 결혼할래.
Keith: No! I want to get married right now.
엄마: 안 돼. 희연이가 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에.
Keith: No, you can't. After you grow up and be tall like your mom.
희연: 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에? 어떻게 키가 커?

엄마: 엄마처럼 책을 많이 읽어.
Keith: Read many books like your mom.
희연: 엄마, 엄마 책 안 읽는 거 알아.
Keith: Mom, I know you don't read any books.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Keith: She's six years old, and her mom is really pushing hard to read those books, huh?
Mingyeong: Yeah, I don't remember reading books when I was six years old.
Keith: I'll have to agree with that one, but I think Korean parents are actually very, what are the words? They really like education.
Mingyeong: Yeah.
Keith: So at what about age do kids start going to 학원? 학원 is actually an academy or a secondary school after their primary school.
Mingyeong: Nowadays? Probably after you get into elementary school.
Keith: I think even earlier. Maybe when you're three or four.
Mingyeong: What?! Three or four?
Keith: Yeah! I've seen a lot of kids going to English 학원s or, you know, reading books when they are three or four years old.
Mingyeong: No way! Can you even read Korean when you're three years or four years old?
Keith: I don't know, but Korean parents really like education.
Mingyeong: Oh, gosh. Ok.
Keith: Ok. Let's take a look at the vocab for this lesson.

Mingyeong: 알다 [natural native speed]
VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Keith: And as we always do, we're going to take a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson. First word we'll take a look at is?
Mingyeong: 결혼하다
Keith: To get married. What's the word "marriage"?
Mingyeong: 결혼. So 결혼하다 is marriage plus 하다.
Keith: Literally of course. And if 결혼 is marriage, how do you say wedding, then?
Mingyeong: 결혼식 - and 식 means ceremony
Keith: Right, so a wedding is a marriage ceremony. So we have 결혼식. Okay what's the next word we're going to take a look at?
Mingyeong: 키가 크다
Keith: To be tall. Can you break that down for us?
Mingyeong: 키 means height, and 크다 means to be big.
Keith: So literally, it's "height is big" - to be tall. That's how we say it in Korean. If you say someone is tall, their height is big. How do you say their height is not so big? They're kind of short?
Mingyeong: 키가 작다.
Keith: Once again, that's literally height is small. 키가 작다. What's that verb?
Mingyeong: 작다.
Keith: To be small. And what's our last word?
Mingyeong: 알다.
Keith: To know. What's the opposite of that? To not know?
Mingyeong: 모르다.
Keith: Right. "To not know" is a separate verb altogether. So instead of 안 알다, which doesn't make sense, we have a totally different word.
Mingyeong: 모르다. And for 알다, sometimes when you say "I know!" you use the present progressive in Korean. Like 알고 있어요!
Keith: Yeah, what's between 알아, "I know," and 알고 있어, "I know," but there it's the present progressive? What's the difference between the two?
Mingyeong: It has different nuances. So 알아 is just telling you I know, but 알고 있어 it's like "I know!" You know?
Keith: Don't bother me! I already got it!
Mingyeong: Yeah.
Keith: So when you're telling someone that you know already. "Come on!" 알고 있어, you're using the present progressive.
Mingyeong: 네.
Keith: So, Mingyeong, do you know what our next section is?
Mingyeong: 알고 있어.
Keith: Let's take a look at the grammar for this lesson.

Lesson focus

Keith: What are we taking a look at in this lesson?
Mingyeong: -처럼
Keith: 처럼 means 'like' and, unlike in English, it's attached after the noun it's referring to, that it's modifying.
Mingyeong: Yeah and sometimes 처럼 (cheoreom) can be replaced with 같이 (gachi) or -와 같이 (-wa gachi) but 처럼 (cheoreom) is the most common one.
Keith: So how do you use this in a sentence?
Mingyeong: Very simple. You take a noun and add 처럼
Keith: Yeah, that's pretty simple. So, for example, how about "like yesterday?"
Mingyeong: 어제처럼
Keith: And the word "yesterday" is?
Mingyeong: 어제
Keith: And we just added on?
Mingyeong: 처럼
Keith: Like. How about "like Keith"? Do it like me?
Mingyeong: Keith처럼
Keith: That's my name plus...
Mingyeong: 처럼
Keith: How about "like this"?
Mingyeong: 이것처럼
Keith: Ok, and how was it used in this lesson's dialogue?
Mingyeong: In this dialogue it came out as 엄마처럼 키가 큰 다음에 결혼해.
Keith: "Get married after you grow up to be tall like your mom."
Mingyeong: And it also came out as 엄마처럼 책을 많이 읽어.
Keith: "Read a lot of books like your mom."
Mingyeong: And, 민경이처럼 한국어 공부를 열심히 해.
Keith: You actually don't study Korean.
Mingyeong: Of course I do!

Outro

Keith: Alright, well that's going to do it for this lesson. 다음에 봐요. (Daeume bwayo.)
Mingyeong: 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)

여러분, "나처럼"을 써서 문장을 만들어 보세요. Everyone, try making a sentence using "like me (nacheoreom)."

Hello viv


Thanks for posting. Good sentence!


We have a blog post about how to type in Korean. Click below link:

https://www.koreanclass101.com/blog/2020/10/16/how-to-type-in-korean/


2-Set is the most commonly used keyboard.

요새 간식을 정말 많이 먹는 것 같아. 나처럼 하지 마.


I'm trying to say: Don't be like me.


But I'm not sure how. So I'm using the 하다 verb 😅


P.S. Is there a lesson that teaches us how to use type Hangeul on the laptop? I kinda know how to navigate the keyboard, but I'm sure there might be a better way. I see, on my Macbook, a menu for 2-set and 3-set Korean, I use 2-set, but have never figured out what 3-set is.


Thank you! Bon weekend!

Hi Helen,


Thanks for posting. 처럼 means 'similar to', whereas 대로 means 'exactly like', so you can see that there is a slight difference in the meaning. Hope this helped!
