Lesson Transcript

안녕하세요. (annyeonghaseyo)
Hello and welcome to Korean survival phrases brought to you by KoreanClass101.com, this course is designed to equip you with the language skills and knowledge to enable you to get the most out of your visit to Korea. You will be surprised at how far a little Korean will go. Now, before we jump in, remember to stop by KoreanClass101.com and there, you will find the accompanying PDF and additional info in the post. If you stop by, be sure to leave us the comment.
In today’s lesson, we will introduce you to a phrase that will provide you with the tools to learn from the people around. Now, a dictionary is a great idea but don’t forget that you can use Korean to learn in a more fun and interactive way. In Korean, can you say it again is 한 번 더 말씀해 주세요 (han beon deo malsseumhae juseyo). One time slowly, it’s 한 번 더 말씀해 주세요 (han beon deo malsseumhae juseyo). And now by syllable, 한 번 더 말-씀-해 주-세-요 (han beon deo mal-sseum-hae ju-se-yo). Now let’s hear it one more time, 한 번 더 말씀해 주세요 (han beon deo malsseumhae juseyo). The first word is 한 번 (han beon). This in English means one time. Let’s break this word down, 한 번 (han beon).
The next part of the phrase is 더 (deo), which literally means more. One time slowly, 더 (deo). Together with 한 번, it’s 한 번 더 (han beon deo). One time more. The next part of the phrase is 말씀 (malsseum). Let’s break this word down 말씀 (malsseum). This word means to say or speak but this word is an honorific form. So remember, when you are talking to someone you don’t know, you should use the honorific form. The last part is 해 주세요 (hae juseyo). The first part is 해 (hae). This means do. The next word 주세요 (juseyo) is a rough translation of please. So together with the 주세요 (juseyo), it means do please. Let’s look at this phrase by syllable. 해 주-세-요 (hae ju-se-yo). Altogether we have 한 번 더 말씀해 주세요 (han beon deo malsseumhae juseyo). Literally this means, one time more speak please which we translate as, can you please say it again.
The next phrase we have for you is, speak slowly please. In Korean, speak slowly please is 천천히 말씀해 주세요 (cheoncheonhi malsseumhae juseyo). One time slowly, 천천히 말씀해 주세요 (cheoncheonhi malsseumhae juseyo). Now by syllable, 천천히 말씀해 주세요 (cheoncheonhi malsseumhae juseyo). Let’s take a look at the first component, 천천히 (cheoncheonhi). This word means slowly. One time slowly, 천천히 (cheoncheonhi). The next part of the phrase is 말씀 (malsseum). This word means to say or speak. The next part of the phrase is 해 주세요 (hae juseyo). Now if you remember from the first phrase we had, its do please. Altogether we have slowly speak please which we translate as speak slowly please. Now this is quite a long way to say, can you say it again please. So if you are in a rush or you just can’t remember, there is a special way you can say it. It’s one syllable, so listen closely. 예 (ye)? It’s kind of like a confused what, hah, what did you say kind of feeling.
So it’s not really polite. You can get away with it but use it sparingly. One time slowly, it’s 예 (ye)? You kind of have to put your emotions into it, all right. 예 (ye)? Okay to close our today’s lesson, we’d like for you to practice what you’ve learned. I will provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud. You will have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So 화이팅 (hwaiting)!
Can you say it again please - 한 번 더 말씀해 주세요 (han beon deo malsseumhae juseyo). Speak slowly please - 천천히 말씀해 주세요 (cheoncheonhi malsseumhae juseyo).
What or hah - 예 (ye)?
All right, that’s going to do it for today. Remember to stop by KoreanClass101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment.

Let's practice. Have you ever used "천천히 말씀 해 주세요. "? :)

Hello Linda,


Thank you for your question.

Please try to search our dictionary. If there are related sentences, it is possible to add them from there, but if not, unfortunately, it's not possible to add sentences from other sections of the lesson.

Thank you for understanding.


Sincerely,

Lena

Hello, is there a way to add full statements from the lessons to the flashcards/word bank like 한번 더 말씀해 주세요 instead of just vocabulary breakdowns like 한번.

Thanks!

Hi Sweet,

Thanks for your comment.


Yes, ‘말씀해 주세요’ and ‘말해 주세요’, both mean 'please tell me'.

However, '말씀' is great respect way to describe '말(words)', so '말씀해 주세요' is used for very polite occasion.


I hope it helps,

Thanks!

Is ‘말씀해 주세요’ same with ‘말해 주셍요’?

Hi Jeff,


Thanks for posting. We have an idea (K Pop girl group no longer active)--but will leave the guessing to the other users. ?

Hi Tay,


Thanks for posting. 한번 더(더 means more) and 다시 both mean 'one more time', so you would not need to put 다시 if you are using 더. So you could say 다시 한번 instead of 한번 더 but it would be repetitive to say 다시 한번 더.

can i put 다시 in front of 한번 더 말씀해 주세요?


I'm sure I've heard of another fixed phrase like this where 다시 is used at the front. Please could you tel me which one it is (if you know what I'm talking about) :smile: :sweat_smile:

Hi Vivian,


Thanks for posting. '말씀하다' is the formal way of saying '말하다'.

So 한번 더 말해 주세요? would be less polite (you would not say this to someone your senior)--and you would use the phrase '한번 더 말씀해 주세요' while speaking to someone higher than you (it is the more formal version).


Best,

Lyn

Annyeonghaseyo :smile:


Is 말씀하다 the formal politeness level of 말하다?

And what is the difference between 한번 더 말해 주세요? and 한번 더 말씀해 주세요?

If I'm right then the first one is standard politeness level and the other is formal?
