안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo)
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 are going to travel within Korea, the trains are an important means of transportation. In today’s lesson, we are going to work on getting a ticket. In many cases, traveling outside of Seoul to other parts of the country will most likely start from Seoul Station. So for today’s lesson, we will use Seoul Station in today’s phrase. In Korean, station is 역 (yeok). One time slowly, it’s 역 (yeok). So our location comes in front of the word 역 (yeok). In today’s case, 서울역 (seoulyeok). In Korean, ticket to Seoul Station please is 서울역 한 장 주세요 (seoulyeok han jang juseyo). And now let’s break it down by syllable. 서-울-역 한 장 주-세-요 (seo-ul-yeok han jang ju-se-yo). The first word is 서울역 (seoulyeok). This means Seoul Station but you all knew that right?
Well, let’s go over it again to help us with our pronunciation. 서울역 (seoulyeok). The next word is 한 장 (han jang) which in Korean is, one ticket. If you can remember, 한 (han) means one, 장 (jang) is a counter for tickets or paper. Please don’t confuse this with 잔 (jan) which is the counter for cups. The counter 장 (jang) ends much like the English ng. Let’s listen to it again. 한 장 (han jang). So to recap here, we have 서울역 한 장 (seoulyeok han jang). Literally this means, Seoul Station one ticket and the last part of the phrase 주세요 (juseyo). So altogether we have 서울역 한 장 주세요 (seoulyeok han jang juseyo). Literally this means Seoul Station, one ticket please. Pretty straightforward hah! Now, if you want to buy more than one ticket, for example, if you wanted to buy two tickets, you can accomplish this by saying 서울역 두 장 주세요 (seoulyeok du jang juseyo). The phrase is exactly the same. Only one tiny thing is different, the number.
The last phrase we went over was one ticket 한 장 (han jang). This one is now two tickets, 두 장 (du jang). So we simply replaced one 한 (han) with two 두 (du). And the counter for tickets stays in the same place. Let’s listen to the phrase one more time. 서울역 두 장 주세요 (seoulyeok du jang juseyo). So let’s listen to two tickets one more time, 두 장 (du jang). Now, you might also need to ask how much is it to your desired destination. For this example, we will use the same destination as in above. In Korean, how much is it to Seoul Station is 서울역은 얼마예요 (seoulyeogeun eolmayeyo)? One time slowly, 서울역은 얼마예요 (seoulyeogeun eolmayeyo)? And by syllable, 서-울-역-은 얼-마-예-요 (seo-ul-yeo-geun eol-ma-ye-yo)? This literally means Seoul Station how much but this is understood as how much is it to Seoul Station. Let’s break the phrase down. The first word 서울역 (seoulyeok) means Seoul Station. What follows immediately after that is 은 (eun) which is a topic marker.
Next is 얼마 (eolma). This means how much. So literally we have Seoul Station how much. But this is understood as, how much is it to Seoul station. 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)!
One ticket to Seoul Station please - 서울역 한 장 주세요 (seoulyeok han jang juseyo).
Two tickets to Seoul Station please - 서울역 두 장 주세요 (seoulyeok du jang juseyo).
How much is it to Seoul station - 서울역은 얼마예요 (seoulyeogeun eolmayeyo)?
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.

Thanks for the lessons -- very useful!


Just wondered whether this is what you'd say for long-distance bus tickets too (minus the 역)? Ie, 서울 한장 주세요?

Hi Palapala,


I'm sorry for your inconvenience.

I've just corrected the spelling for one ticket as 한 장 with a word space, so the writing test should be working fine now.


Thank you!

In the writing questions section, it marks the answer as wrong if you type

한 장 with a space between the words, but 두 장 is correct with the space. It looks like there is a space in the lesson notes. does it matter? If it does, can the test be corrected to mark the typing correctly so we learn to type properly? thank you.
