Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I’m Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We’ve found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you’ll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, we’ll learn conversational phrases to answer the question “What's the matter?” After watching this video, you’ll be able to make complaints and ask someone else if they’re having any issues.
Now, let’s take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
괜찮아요? (Gwaenchanayo?)
사무실이 덥습니다. (Samusiri deopseumnida.)
Once more with the English translation.
괜찮아요? (Gwaenchanayo?)
“What's the matter?”
사무실이 덥습니다. (Samusiri deopseumnida.)
“The office is hot.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What's the matter?”
That's:
괜찮아요? (Gwaenchanayo?)
Listen to it again:
괜찮아요?, 괜찮아요? (Gwaenchanayo?, Gwaenchanayo?)
This Korean sentence literally translates into "Are you alright?,” but it means “What's the matter?” in English.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
사무실이 {adjective}니다. (Samusiri {adjective}nida.)
“The office is {adjective}.”
This Korean sentence literally translates into "The office [adjective] is.,” but it means “The office is [adjective].” in English.
For example:
“The office is hot.”
사무실이 덥습니다., 사무실이 덥습니다. (Samusiri deopseumnida., Samusiri deopseumnida.)
