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 study subjects.
The first word we have is 역사 (yeoksa) which means “history.” With that word, you can say 외워야 할 숫자가 너무 많이 있어서 역사 과목을 싫어했습니다. (Oewoya hal sutjaga neomu mani isseoseo yeoksa gwamogeul sireohaetsseumnida.) which means “I didn’t like history subject because there were too many numbers to remember.” What year this happened, what year this happened but now I like it because I like the context of the history.
Okay next we have 미술 (misul) which means “art.” With that word, you can say 고등학교 때 미술 시간에는 수학 공부를 해야 됐습니다. (Godeunghakgyo ttae misul siganeneun suhak gongbureul haeya dwaetsseumnida.) which means “When I was in high school, I had to study math in art class.” because the school wanted to make us to be in top class universities. So we had to study a lot even using arts class, sports class or something like that.
생물학 (saengmulhak) which means “biology.” With that word, you can say 생물학 시간에 개구리를 해부했습니다. (Saengmulhak sigane gaegurireul haebuhaetsseumnida.) which means “I dissected a frog in biology class.” Subtitle.
Okay next we have 화학 (hwahak) which means “chemistry.” With that word, you can say 저는 화학 시간에 화산폭발 실험을 가장 좋아했습니다. (Jeoneun hwahak sigane hwasanpokbal silheomeul gajang joahaetsseumnida.) which means “I liked volcano eruption experiment in chemistry class.”
Next we have 수학 (suhak) which means “math.” 수 (su) means “numbers” 학 (hak) means “study.” So it literally means the study of numbers. With that word, you can say 한국 사람들은 일반적으로 수학을 잘합니다. (Hanguk saramdeureun ilbanjeogeuro suhageul jalhamnida.) which means “In general Korean people are good at math.”
Okay next we have end. Okay that’s all for this week. I will see you next time. 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다. (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida.) 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
