Lesson Transcript

Jaehwi: Hi everyone. I am Jaehwi. Welcome back to Korean Weekly Words. This week’s theme is tableware. Okay let’s see what we have about this theme.
Okay the first word is 접시 (jeopsi) meaning “plate.” With that word, you can say 손님을 대접하기 위해서 접시에 음식을 담았습니다. (Sonnimeul daejeopagi wihaeseo jeopsie eumsigeul damatsseumnida.) which means “I put food on the plate to treat my guest.”
Next we have 국자 (gukja) meaning “ladle.” With that word, you can say 국자로 김치찌개를 퍼서 친구들에게 줬습니다. (Gukjaro gimchijjigaereul peoseo chingudeurege jwotsseumnida.) which means “I scooped Kimchi soup by a ladle and gave it to my friends.”
Okay next we have 물컵 (mulkeop) which means “drinking glass.” 물 (mul) means “water,” 컵 means “cup.” So it literally means a cup for water. With that word, you can say 물컵을 놓쳐서 물컵이 깨졌습니다. (Mulkeobeul nochyeoseo mulkeobi kkaejyeotsseumnida.) which means “I dropped a drinking glass. So the drinking glass got broken.”
피쳐 (pichyeo) which means “pitcher” for beer. So you can say 저는 맥주 피쳐를 네 개 정도 마실 수 있었습니다. (Jeoneun maekju pichyeoreul ne gae jeongdo masil su iseotsseumnida.) which means “I could drink four pitchers of beer.” in the past, not anymore though.
머그잔 (meogujan) which means “coffee mug.” With that word, you can say 저는 일회용 컵보다 머그잔에 커피를 마시는 것을 좋아합니다. (Jeoneun ilhoeyong keopboda meogeujane keopireul masineun geoseul joahamnida.) which means “I prefer drinking coffee in a mug to drinking coffee in a paper cup.”
End okay that’s all for this week. I will see you next week. 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다. (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida.) 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
