Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Lyn: And I'm Lyn.
Eric: And welcome to Must-Know Korean Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 15. Using Verbs in Infinitive Form.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for expressing that you want to do something.
PATTERN
Eric: For example,
Eric: "I want to sleep all afternoon."
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Lyn: [slow] 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Eric: The pattern for expressing that you want to do something has 4 elements. First, the noun, "afternoon."
Lyn: 오후 (ohu).
Eric: Second, the adverb, "all."
Lyn: 내내 (naenae).
Eric: Third, the verb stem, "to sleep."
Lyn: 자 (ja).
Eric: And last, the phrase, "want to do something."
Lyn: 고 싶어요 (go sipeoyo).
Eric: Altogether, we have... "I want to sleep all afternoon."
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.) [slow] 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.) [normal] 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Eric: In this example, we had the phrase...
Lyn: 고 싶어요 (go sipeoyo)
Eric: which means “I want to do something.” You need to put this after a verb-stem to mean what you want to do. Also, you can add adverbs meaning "all day" or "all afternoon" at the beginning of the sentence to say how much you want to do something.
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Eric: So remember that to express your desire to do something, simply say the verb stem plus the sentence ending…
Lyn: 고 싶어요 (go sipeoyo).
Eric: Here is another example, "I want to rest all day." First, the noun, "day."
Lyn: 하루 (haru).
Eric: Second, the adverb, "all."
Lyn: 내내 (naenae).
Eric: Third, the verb stem, "to rest."
Lyn: 쉬 (swi).
Eric: And last, the phrase, "want to do something."
Lyn: 고 싶어요 (go sipeoyo).
Eric: Altogether we have...
Lyn: 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.) [slow] 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.) [normal] 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.)
Eric: "I want to rest all day."
[pause]
Lyn: 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.)
Eric: How do you say - "I want to travel all week." To give you a hint, the verb-stem "to travel" is...
Lyn: 여행하 (yeohaengha). [slow] 여행하 (yeohaengha). [normal] 여행하 (yeohaengha).
Eric: "I want to travel all week."
[pause]
Lyn: 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.) [slow] 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.) [normal] 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.)
[pause]
Lyn: 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.)
REVIEW
Eric: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I will give you the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud in Korean. Here we go.
Eric: "I want to sleep all afternoon."
[pause]
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
[pause]
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Eric: "I want to rest all day."
[pause]
Lyn: 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.)
[pause]
Lyn: 하루 내내 쉬고 싶어요. (haru naenae swigo sipeoyo.)
Eric: "I want to travel all week."
[pause]
Lyn: 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.)
[pause]
Lyn: 일주일 내내 여행하고 싶어요. (iljuil naenae yeohaenghago sipeoyo.)

Outro

Eric: Okay. That's all for this lesson. You learned a pattern for expressing that you want to do something, as in...
Lyn: 오후 내내 자고 싶어요. (ohu naenae jago sipeoyo.)
Eric: meaning "I want to sleep all afternoon."
Eric: You can find more vocab or phrases to go with this sentence pattern in the lesson notes. So please be sure to check them out on KoreanClass101.com. Thanks everyone, see you next time!
Lyn: 그럼 다음 시간에 만나요! (Geureom daeum sigane mannayo!)

Hello Mareike,


Thanks for posting.


일 : A period of one day. / A bound noun that serves as a unit for counting the number of days or referring to a date.

For example)

12월 1일 December 1st.

축제는 삼 일 동안 계속되었다. The festival lasted for three days.


하루 : The 24 hours from midnight to the following midnight. / The hours from sunrise to sunset when people engage in their activities.

For example)

오늘 하루 즐거웠어요. I had a great day today.

사람들은 보통 하루에 세 번 밥을 먹는다. People usually eat three times a day.


아침 means morning. 오전 refers to a wider morning hours, which is before 12pm.


Kind regards,

Thanks for this lesson! I have some questions about the vocab. Is there a difference between the word 하루 and 일 ?

And the same goes for 오전 and 아침. When do I use which?


Many greetings,

Mareike
