Lesson Transcript

안녕하세요 여러분. Koreanclass101.com 하나하나 한글시리즈의 에이미입니다. Hi everybody! I’m Amy and welcome to Hana Hanaㅂ Hangul on KoreanClass101.com - The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
In the last lesson, we learned these four consonants.
You now know well over half of the characters in written Korean, and we’ll learn another three today! Ready? Let’s get started!
Our first character is really easy to remember. It’s just a square: ㅁ[m].
To remember the sound of this character you could think about the shape of a monitor, or an open mouth.
Try to read this: 머리.
This means “head.”
Let’s look at this character again. Think of this like a box. Now, press the top of it down until the air inside it is under more pressure. What does an “m” sound like when it’s under more pressure? “b”
Here’s a word you’ll often hear on TV. 바보. This means “fool.” It can either be playful or rude depending on how it’s said, so be careful!
Let’s go back to our box under pressure. If we add any more pressure, it might explode! And then it would like this. What’s a “b”
sound like with even more pressure? “p”.
Try reading this word: 피부. This means “skin”.
And here is a phrase that you could use in Korea: 아파요. It means “I’m sick.” or “It hurts.”
You can use some words from past lessons to make this sentence more advanced.
In the last lesson, we learned the word “where”: 어디. You can add this to the phrase and get “어디 아파요?” Literally, it means “where does it hurt?”
And you already know a few body part words! Remember the word for "head"? 머리. So how would you say your head hurts?
We can say 머리아파요. “My head hurts.” or “I have a headache.”
Any other body parts we know? It’s a little strange, but we just learned the word for “skin”: 피부.
피부 아파요. My skin hurts!
Nice work! You might have started watching to learn the Korean writing system, but you’re also getting a jump start on general Korean knowledge! If you haven’t tried out the audio lessons on KoreanClass101.com, now’s a great chance to try out some real life conversations!
And, you will learn the final three consonants in the next lesson! You’re only one lesson away from knowing all the unique shapes in Korean. After that, it’s just a matter of positioning those shapes around to create different words. Be sure not to miss the next lesson of Hana Hana Hangul. See you next time! 여러분 다음에 만나요
