Lesson Transcript

Hello and welcome to Korean survival phrases brought to you by KoreanClass101.com, this course is designed to equip you with the language skills and knowledge to enable you to get the most out of your visit to Korea. You will be surprised at how far a little Korean will go. Now, before we jump in, remember to stop by KoreanClass101.com and there, you will find the accompanying PDF and additional info in the post. If you stop by, be sure to leave us the comment.
Today, we will be discussing Korean food. If you never had the food before, man, are you in for a surprise. It is so flavorful, juicy, tender, and spicy if you like that kind of stuff. It’s just a crazy party in your mouth. So you are going to need this phrase to express how much you like it. Delicious in Korean is, 맛있어요 (masisseoyo). One time slowly, 맛있어요 (masisseoyo). Now this word we might have a little bit of a problem breaking it down by syllable. This is because the consonants carry over to the next syllable. So please pay attention as I will be speaking very slowly. 맛-있-어-요 (ma-si-sseo-yo). One more time, it’s 맛있어요 (masisseoyo).
The first three parts of this word are connected. Listen closely once again, 맛있어요 (masisseoyo). Now like I said, if you haven’t had Korean food, it’s really 맛있어요 (masisseoyo). But there are certain dishes that are just so good. It’s really delicious. So in Korean, you express it by saying 진짜 맛있어요 (jinjja masisseoyo). And even more than that, there is 너무 맛있어요 (neomu masisseoyo) which means too delicious. It’s too good you know like I am about to die. It’s so good, too good. Anyway, so using this 맛있어요 (masisseoyo), we can now ask the staff what they recommend or rather what they think is delicious. In Korean, what do you recommend is, 뭐가 맛있어요 (mwoga masisseoyo)? Literally this means, what is delicious but it’s basically asking for their recommendation.
Let’s hear it again. 뭐가 맛있어요 (mwoga masisseoyo)? The first word 뭐 (mwo) means what. 가 (ga) does not have any meaning. It’s simply an object marker. Let’s hear it together one more time, 뭐가 (mwoga). This is followed by delicious which once again is 맛있어요 (masisseoyo). Altogether it’s 뭐가 맛있어요 (mwoga masisseoyo)?
Okay. To close our today’s lesson, we’d like for you to practice what you’ve learned. I will provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud. You will have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So 화이팅 (hwaiting)!
Delicious - 맛있어요 (masisseoyo).
What do you recommend or what is delicious - 뭐가 맛있어요 (mwoga masisseoyo)?
All right, that’s going to do it for today. Remember to stop by KoreanClass101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment.

Hey Koreanclassers!



Wes - 맛있어요 is the most standard to say delicious. If you would like to say 'really delicious', you could definitely say as 정말 맛있어요 or 진짜 맛있어요!:)


사가에 - the difference is 이것은 맛있어요 shortened to 이건 맛있어요 while 이거 맛있어요 is missing the subject particle which are common when it comes to colloquial sense!;)





Thank you

안녕하세요. 저는사가에입니다.

We have at expansion part two uses of "what is this?"

이건 뭐예요? And 이거뭐예요?

I'd like to know what's the difference between them or if it's just a mispelling

?

감사합니다

Keith stated three different ways to say delicious, but only one is listed in the lesson notes. 맛있어요 . How does one say it is really delicious, and this is really good? What are the different degrees of "delicious" in Korean?
