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 geography. That was my favorite subject when I was back in school. Okay let’s see what we have.
The first word is 호수 (hosu) which means “lake.” With that word, you can say 저는 산정호수에서 산책하는 것을 좋아합니다. (Jeoneun sanjeonghosueseo sanchaekaneun geoseul joahamnida.) “I like walking around the lake named 산정호수 (sanjeonghosu) Sanjeong Lake.” It is really closer to North Korea. So in the past when North Korea had that area, that lake became a place for 김일성 (gimilseol) like his place to you know go around, private place only for him because the scenery is so beautiful. It’s 산정호수 (sanjeonghosu) Sanjeong Lake.
Okay next we have 산 (san) which means “mountain.” With that word, you can say 서울에는 남산과 북한산이 있어서 사람들이 등산을 자주 합니다. (Seoureneun namsangwa bukansani isseoseo saramdeuri deungsaneul jaju hamnida.) which means “In Seoul, we have 남산 (namsan) South Mountain and 북한산 (bukansan) North Mountain. So people do hiking a lot in Seoul.”
Okay next we have 언덕 (eondeok) which means “hill.” With that word, you can say 서울에는 언덕이 많아서 자전거를 타기가 힘듭니다. (Seoureneun eondeogi manaseo jajeongeoreul tagiga himdeumnida.) which means “It’s difficult for riding a bicycle in Seoul because there are a lot of hills.”
Next we have 섬 (seom) “island.” With that word, you can say 한국의 남쪽은 섬이 많아서 다도해라고도 불립니다. (Hangugui namjjogeun seomi manaseo dadohaeragodo bullimnida.) which means “In South Sea of South Korea, there are a lot of islands. So it’s also called 다도해 (dadohae) which literally means sea with a lot of islands.”
Okay next we have 들판 (deulpan) which means “field.” With that word, you can say 우리 집 강아지는 들판에서 혼자 뛰노는 것을 좋아합니다. (Uri jip gangajineun deulpaneseo honja ttwinoneun geoseul joahamnida.) which means “My dog likes to run around in the field alone.”
End. Okay, that’s all the words that we have. I hope you liked some of the words that we introduced in this theme. I will see you next week. 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다. (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida.) 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
