Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Dana: Hi, everyone. I'm Dana.
Jaehwi: And I'm Jaehwi.
Dana: And welcome to Must-Know Korean Sentence Structures, Season 1, Lesson 32 - Giving Advice, Part 1.
Dana: In this lesson, you'll learn a sentence pattern for giving advice.
PATTERN
Dana: For example...
Dana: "I would recommend that you move to another apartment."
Jaehwi: 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
Jaehwi: [slow] 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
Dana: The pattern for giving advice has 4 elements. First, there’s the determiner.
Jaehwi: 다른 (dareun).
Dana: Second, the noun plus the case particle…
Jaehwi: 로(ro).
Jaehwi: 아파트로 (apateuro).
Dana: Third, the verb stem.
Jaehwi: 이사하 (isaha).
Dana: And last, the advice phrase “be better to do~”.
Jaehwi: 는게 좋겠어요 (neunge jokkesseoyo).
Dana: All together, we have "I would recommend that you move to another apartment."
Jaehwi: 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.) [slow] 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.) [normal] 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
Dana: You start with a determiner and a noun, followed by the case particle…
Jaehwi: 로(ro)
Dana: to indicate where you will be “moving.” Then, you follow it with the verb stem plus the phrase…
Jaehwi: 는게 좋겠어요 (neunge jokkesseoyo),
Dana: which is used when giving advice.
Jaehwi: 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
Dana: So remember, you use this phrase when you are offering advice in a polite manner.
Dana: Here is another example, meaning "I would recommend that you do your homework right away" First, use the noun plus the object marking particle…
Jaehwi: 를 (reul).
Jaehwi: 숙제를 (sukjereul).
Dana: Second, say the adverb.
Jaehwi: 바로 (baro).
Dana: Third, add the verb stem.
Jaehwi: 공부하 (gongbuha).
Dana: And last, use the advice phrase “be better to do~.”
Jaehwi: 는게 좋겠어요 (neunge jokkesseoyo).
Dana: All together, we have...
Jaehwi: 숙제를 바로 하는게 좋겠어요. (sukjereul baro haneunge jokkesseoyo) [slow] 숙제를 바로 하는게 좋겠어요. (sukjereul baro haneunge jokkesseoyo) [normal] 숙제를 바로 하는게 좋겠어요. (sukjereul baro haneunge jokkesseoyo)
Dana: "I would recommend that you do your homework right away."
[pause]
Jaehwi: 숙제를 바로 하는게 좋겠어요. (sukjereul baro haneunge jokkesseoyo)
Dana: How do you say "It may be better not to see the movie"? To give you a hint, "to not see" is...
Jaehwi: 보지 않다 (boji antta). [slow] 보지 않다 (boji antta). [normal] 보지 않다 (boji antta).
Dana: "It may be better not to see the movie."
[pause]
Jaehwi: 영화 보지 않는게 좋겠어요. (yeonghwa boji anneunge jokkesseoyo) [slow] 영화 보지 않는게 좋겠어요. (yeonghwa boji anneunge jokkesseoyo) [normal] 영화 보지 않는게 좋겠어요. (yeonghwa boji anneunge jokkesseoyo)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 영화 보지 않는게 좋겠어요. (yeonghwa boji anneunge jokkesseoyo)
REVIEW
Dana: Let's review the sentences from this lesson. I'll tell you the English equivalent of the phrase and you say it in Korean. Here we go.
Dana: "I would recommend that you move to another apartment."
[pause]
Jaehwi: 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 다른 아파트로 이사하는게 좋겠어요. (dareun apateuro issahaneunge jokkesseoyo.)
Dana: "I would recommend that you do your homework right away."
[pause]

[pause]
Jaehwi: 숙제를 바로 하는게 좋겠어요. (sukjereul baro haneunge jokkesseoyo)
Dana: "It may be better not to see the movie."

Hi Michael,


Thanks for posting. We use various sample sentences (some that are not included at the top) just to show you how you can construct various sentences.

And a determiner is a word, phrase, or affix that occurs together with a noun or noun phrase and serves to express the reference of that noun or noun phrase in the context.


Hope this was of help.


Cheers,

Lyn

Why aren't the second and third sentences used in the dialogue in the written dialogue at the top of the lesson??
