Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) 알코올 도수가 높은 소주가 필요할 때에는 뚜껑이 빨간 소주를 주문하면 됩니다.

The English translation of:

여름에 목이 마를 때에는 보리차에 얼음을

넣어서 마십니다.


is missing: "when you are thirsty" in the PDF notes as well as vocab expansion section.


The english translation of "한국에서 인기있는 음료는 무엇일까요?" is more detailed in english "What are the five most popular beverages in South Korea?"
