Lesson Transcript

여러분, 안녕하세요? 에이미에요. Hi, everybody! I’m Amy.
Welcome back to KoreanClass101.com’s 삼분 한국어, the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Korean.
In the last lesson, we learned how to ask "How do you say it in Korean?"
In this lesson, we’ll learn a phrase that will help you read, not just talk.
Let’s start!
You just got a restaurant recommendation from a Korean friend, but you’re worried that you might forget the name. Just ask
“Can you write it down please?”
적어 주시겠어요?
Let’s break it down:
적어 is ‘to write down’
주시겠어요 is can you please do
[slowly] 적어 주시겠어요?
They wrote it down, but now you don’t know how to read it!
이거 어떻게 읽어요?
“How do you read this?”
이거 this, 어떻게, how.
And 읽어요 means “ to read.”
이거 어떻게 읽어요?
how do you read this?
Korean letters, the Hangul, are easy to write down, yet may be a bit difficult to pronounce.
If you didn’t quite catch the pronunciation, you could ask,
한 번 더 읽어주시겠어요?
which means,
can you read it one more time?
한 번 더 is one more time,
읽어 주시겠어요 can you please read~
한 번 더 읽어 주시겠어요?
At the end of this whole process, you could perhaps thank them by saying,
적어 주셔서 감사합니다.
Thank you for writing down.
적어 주셔서 is polite way of saying “writing it down”
감사합니다 as you would probably know well, is thank you.
[slowly] 적어 주셔서 감사합니다.
Now it’s time for Amy’s insight.
Since there are wifi’s everywhere in Korea, you could try your smartphone! Don’t need old-fashioned paper, pen or even the map.
Ask them to write it down for you on your phone! you know Koreans are good with the phone.
That is it for today! In the next lesson, we’ll cover what to say when we're exchanging money such as 어디서 환전할 수 있어요?
I’ll be waiting for you in our next 삼분 한국어 lesson!
