Lesson Transcript

Jaehwi: Hi everyone. I am Jaehwi. Welcome back to Korean Weekly Words. Let’s see what we have for this week. This week’s theme is vegetables. Okay let’s see what we have.
The first one is 감자 (gamja) which means “potato.” With that word, you can say 강원도는 감자로 유명합니다. (Gangwondoneun gamjaro yumyeonghamnida.) which means “Gangwon Province is known for its potatoes.”
Okay next we have 당근 (danggeun) “carrot.” With that word, you can say 아이들은 당근을 싫어합니다. (Aideureun danggeuneul sireohamnida.) which means “Kids don’t like eating carrots.” Just for information like these days, people just say 당근 (danggeun) “carrot” when they want to say of course because it sounds like the Korean expression meaning of course which is 당연하지 (Dangyeonhaji). 당연하지. (Dangyeonhaji.) 당근. (danggeun.) Do you like this?
Okay next we have 마늘 (maneul) which means “garlic.” Okay with that word, you can say 드라큘라는 마늘을 싫어합니다. (Deurakyullaneun maneureul sireohamnida.) which means “Vampires don’t like garlics.” So people in Korean like people just say 드라큘라 (deurakyulla) even though it means vampires, not only Dracula.
Okay next we have 시금치 (sigeumchi) which means “spinach.” Okay with that word, you can say 아이들은 뽀빠이처럼 되기 위해서 시금치를 먹습니다. (Aideureun ppoppaicheoreom doegi wihaeseo sigeumchireul meoksseumnida.) which means Kids eat spinach to become like Popeye. So 뽀빠이 (ppoppai) is the Korean word to mean Popeye.
Okay next we have 양파 (yangpa) which means “onion.” 양 (yang) means “western” and 파 (pa) is the word meaning “green onion” which is long. So this literally means western style green onion because green onion was used much earlier than this type of onion. You can say 요즘에는 전통음식에도 양파를 사용합니다. (Yojeumeneun jeontongeumsigedo yangpareul sayonghamnida.) which means “These days, people use onions even in the traditional Korean food.”
Okay next we have, okay that’s the end. Okay that’s all the words that we have for this week. I hope you enjoyed all of the words that we had. I will see you next week. 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다. (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida.) 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
