INTRODUCTION
Gina:Hi everyone, I’m Gina.
Eunhee:And I’m Eunhee!
Gina:And welcome to Culture Class: Essential Korean Vocabulary, Lesson 7! In this lesson you'll learn 5 essential words related to Food and Drink. These are five common Vegetables in Korea. Hand picked. You can find a complete list of vocabulary at KoreanClass101.com
FIVE KEY VOCABULARY ITEMS
Gina:Eunhee, what’s our first word?
Eunhee:파
Gina:green onion
Eunhee: (slow) 파 (regular) 파
Gina:Listeners, please repeat:
Eunhee:파
[pause - 5 sec.]
Gina:Green onion is the most popular vegetable used in Korean soup. Not only does it add flavor, it also makes them look better because it adds white and green to soups with red hot pepper sauce. -
Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) 파는 부침개를 만들 때 쓰입니다.
Gina:Green onions are added to Korean pancakes called ‘buchimjae’.
Eunhee:(slow) 파는 부침개를 만들 때 쓰입니다.
Gina:Okay, what’s the next word?
Eunhee:당근
Gina:carrot
Eunhee: (slow) 당근 (regular) 당근
Gina:Listeners, please repeat:
Eunhee:당근
[pause - 5 sec.]
Gina:Carrots are mostly used in juices in South Korea. They have more Vitamin A than other vegetables, so people eat them to help promote better vision. Also, ‘Dang-geun’, the Korean word for “carrot”, sounds like the phrase that means “Of course”, so people say the word when they agree with something.
Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) 당근은 잡채와 같은 면 요리에 주로 사용합니다.
Gina:Carrots are mostly used for making noodles including ‘Jabchae’, a Korean dish made from sweet potato noodles.
Eunhee:(slow) 당근은 잡채와 같은 면 요리에 주로 사용합니다.
Gina:Okay, what’s the next word?
Eunhee:오이
Gina:cucumber
Eunhee: (slow) 오이 (regular) 오이
Gina:Listeners, please repeat:
Eunhee:오이
[pause - 5 sec.]
Gina:You can find more Korean foods that use cucumbers in summer, because they have plenty of water inside them. Also for that reason, Korean women put sliced cucumbers on their skin to keep it moisturized, instead of using face masks. -
Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) 여름에 등산을 가는 한국 사람들은 수분섭취를 위해 오이를 가져갑니다.
Gina:Korean people hiking in the summer season take cucumbers along to increase their fluid intake.
Eunhee:(slow) 여름에 등산을 가는 한국 사람들은 수분섭취를 위해 오이를 가져갑니다.
Gina:Okay, what’s the next word?
Eunhee:호박
Gina:pumpkin
Eunhee: (slow) 호박 (regular) 호박
Gina:Listeners, please repeat:
Eunhee:호박
[pause - 5 sec.]
Gina:Pumpkin is known to help blood circulation, so people take pumpkin soup as a gift for ladies who just gave birth. In summer, people make side dishes with ‘ae-hobak’, which literally means “baby pumpkins”, but also means “zucchini” in English. -
Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) 시골에 가면 호박죽이나 전을 만들기 위해서 사람들이 밖에서 호박을 말리는 모습을 쉽게 볼 수 있습니다.
Gina:In the countryside, people dry pumpkins inside the house to make pumpkin soup or pancakes with.

Eunhee:배추
Gina:Chinese cabbage
Eunhee: (slow) 배추 (regular) 배추
Gina:Listeners, please repeat:
Eunhee:배추
[pause - 5 sec.]
Gina:In the past, people could easily get Chinese cabbage from yards or farms, so it became the most popular ingredient for making Kimchi. Since nearly every Korean person eats Kimchi every day, the price of Chinese cabbage is considered a major factor of the consumer price index. -
Gina:Now let's hear a sample sentence using this word.
Eunhee:(normal) ‘포기'는 배추를 셀 때 사용하는 단위명사입니다.
Gina:‘Pogi’ is the counting unit for Chinese cabbages in Korean.
Eunhee:(slow) ‘포기'는 배추를 셀 때 사용하는 단위명사입니다.

Hi Thomas,


Thanks for posting--eating a lot of vegetables are great for you, for sure, so if you add it to your diet, I am sure you will become healthier.

As for your question regarding how you write you name in Korean, like Colin said, you could write your name in Korean as '토마스', or if you go by Thom for short, '톰'.


Hope this was of help. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.


Best,

Lyn

I like the diet that a lot of Asia people from various countries eat. I think we could learn a lesson from them and stop eating what we eat to be healthier. Whenever I see this, I add it to my collection of foods to eat. I like vegetables. All of them in this lesson included. Now we know the Korean name for them. In response to people asking about their name in Korean and what characters are used. I know mine in several Asian languages, but not in Korean. Since several people have wrote about their names from different countries, how does it work in Korean using Korean characters. I know my name is written in katakana in Japanese, another language that I have been learning.

Hello Colin,




Thank you so much for your comment and we are genuinely appreciated.


You are right that the translation could be more detailed for the understanding of the listeners.


We again thank you for your opinion and we would try to reflect so as soon as possible!




Thank you

The English translation for:

시골에 가면 호박죽이나 전을 만들기 위해서

사람들이 밖에서 호박을 말리는 모습을 쉽게 볼

수 있습니다.


Says: "In the countryside, people dry pumpkins

inside the house to make pumpkin soup or

pancakes with."


Wouldn't a more accurate translation be: "If you go to the countryside, you can often/easily see people outside drying pumpkins to make pumpkin porridge" ?
