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 38. Getting from Point A to B.
Dana: In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a sentence pattern for going from Place A to Place B.
PATTERN
Dana: For example,
Dana: "How do I get home from here?"
Jaehwi: 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?)
Jaehwi: [slow] 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?)
Dana: The pattern for going from place A to place B has 3 elements. First, determiner plus place particle…
Jaehwi: 에서 (eseo).
Jaehwi: 여기에서 (yeogieseo).
Dana: Second, noun plus particle...
Jaehwi: 까지 (kkaji).
Jaehwi: 집까지 (jibkkaji).
Dana: Third, adverb(eotteoke) plus verb stem plus sentence ending...
Jaehwi: 요 (yo).
Jaehwi: 어떻게 가요 (eotteoke gayo).
Dana: All together, we have... "How do I get home from here?"
Jaehwi: 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?) [slow] 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?) [normal] 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?)
Dana: The phrase…
Jaehwi: A 부터 (buteo) B 까지 (kkaji).
Dana: is used to say 'from A to B'. The demonstrative pronoun…
Jaehwi: 여기 (yeogi)
Dana: is used to indicate the place where the speaker will be starting 'from'. The place particle…
Jaehwi: 에서 (eseo)
Dana: and the particle
Jaehwi: 부터 (buteo)
Dana: are placed one after another to indicate 'from the specified location'. It is followed by a noun “home”, then the particle
Jaehwi: 까지 (kkaji),
Dana: “to,” then the verb stem and the honorific suffix...
Jaehwi: 요 (yo).
Jaehwi: 여기에서 집까지 어떻게 가요? (yeogieseo jibkkaji eotteokke gayo?)
Dana: So remember This phrase is used to state 'from place A to place B'.
Dana: Here is another example meaning, "I walk from the park to the library." First, noun plus place particle...
Jaehwi: 에서 (eseo).
Jaehwi: 공원에서 (gongwon eseo).
Dana: Second, noun plus particle
Jaehwi: 까지 (kkaji).
Jaehwi: 도서관까지 (doseogwankkaji).
Dana: Third, verb stem plus polite suffix…
Jaehwi: 요 (yo).
Jaehwi: 걸어가요. (georeogayo).
Dana: All together we have...
Jaehwi: 공원에서 도서관까지 걸어가요. (gongwon eseo doseogwankkaji georeogayo) [slow] 공원에서 도서관까지 걸어가요. (gongwon eseo doseogwankkaji georeogayo) [normal] 공원에서 도서관까지 걸어가요. (gongwon eseo doseogwankkaji georeogayo)
Dana: "I walk from the park to the library."
[pause]
Jaehwi: 공원에서 도서관까지 걸어가요. (gongwon eseo doseogwankkaji georeogayo)
Dana: How do you say - "How do you go from the classroom to the library?" To give you a hint, "classroom" is...
Jaehwi: 교실 (gyosil). [slow] 교실 (gyosil). [normal] 교실 (gyosil).
Dana: "How do you go from the classroom to the library?"
[pause]
Jaehwi: 교실에서 도서관까지 어떻게 가요? (gyosileseso doseogwankkaji eottokke gayo) [slow] 교실에서 도서관까지 어떻게 가요? (gyosileseso doseogwankkaji eottokke gayo) [normal] 교실에서 도서관까지 어떻게 가요? (gyosileseso doseogwankkaji eottokke gayo)
[pause]
Jaehwi: 교실에서 도서관까지 어떻게 가요? (gyosileseso doseogwankkaji eottokke gayo)

Hi Uttam,


Thanks for posting. The phrase is ~에서 ~까지.


여기에서 저기에서-->여기에서 저기까지


When it comes to time, you use a different pattern:

아침에서 오후까지 일했어요. -->아침부터 오후까지 일했어요.


Cheers,

Lyn
