Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Gabriella: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Korean learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native speaker. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.
GRAMMAR POINT
Gabriella: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question What's your name? In Korean this is
Kyejin: 이름이 무엇입니까? (Ireumi mueosimnikka?)
Gabriella: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 이름 (ireum)
Gabriella: meaning “name” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 이름 (ireum)
Gabriella: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 이름 (ireum)
{Pause}
Gabriella: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Kyejin: 이 (i)
Gabriella: meaning something like “is.” This is the subject-marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 이 (i)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 이 (i)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이름이 (ireumi)
{pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 무엇(mueot)
Gabriella: meaning “what.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 무-엇(mu-eot)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 무엇(mueot)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이름이 무엇(ireumi mueot)
{pause}
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 입니-(imni)
Gabriella: meaning something like “to be.” This is the verb-stem of the verb
Kyejin: 입니다(imnida)
Gabriella: which means ‘to be.’
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이름이 무엇입니(ireumi mueosim)
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 까(kka)
Gabriella: question marking particle
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까(kka)
Gabriella: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 까(kka)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이름이 무엇입니까? (Ireumi mueosimnikka?)
{pause}
Gabriella: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “What's your name?”
Kyejin: 제 이름은 마이클입니다. (Je ireumeun maikeurimnida.)
Gabriella: "My name is Michael.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 제 이름은 마이클입니다. (Je ireumeun maikeurimnida.)
{pause}
Gabriella: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 제 (je)
Gabriella: means “My.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 제(je)
Gabriella: Now repeat
Kyejin: 제(je)
{Pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 이름(ireum)
Gabriella: meaning “name.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 이름(ireum)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 이름(ireum)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Next is
Kyejin: 은(eun)
Gabriella: topic marking particle
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 은
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 은(eun)
{Pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 마이클(maikeul)
Gabriella: which is the name “Michael.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 마이클(maikeul)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 마이클(maikeul)
{Pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 입니다(imnida)
Gabriella: meaning ‘to be.’
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 입니다(imnida)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 입니다. (imnida.)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the speaker say, “My name is Michael.” and then repeat.
Kyejin: 제 이름은 마이클입니다. (Je ireumeun maikeurimnida.)
{pause}
Gabriella: To make another phrase, replace “Michael” with “Peter”.
Kyejin: 피터 (piteo)
Gabriella: Peter (piteo)
Kyejin: (slow) 피터(piteo) (regular) 피터(piteo)
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Peter.”
Kyejin: 제 이름은 피터입니다. (Je ireumeun piteoimnida.)
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Michael” with “Peter.” Say “My name is Peter.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 제 이름은 피터입니다. (Je ireumeun piteoimnida.)
Gabriella: To use a different phrase, replace “Peter” with “Catherine.”
Kyejin: 캐서린 (kaeseorin)
Gabriella: Catherine
Kyejin: (slow) 캐서린(kaeseorin) (regular) 캐서린(kaeseorin)
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Catherine.”
Kyejin: 제 이름은 캐서린입니다. (Je ireumeun kaeseorinimnida.)
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Peter” with “Catherine.” Say “My name is Catherine.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 제 이름은 캐서린입니다. (Je ireumeun kaeseorinimnida.)
Gabriella: To expand on the pattern, replace “Catherine” with “Marco.”
Kyejin: 마르코 (mareuko)
Gabriella: Marco
Kyejin: (slow) 마르코(mareuko) (regular) 마르코 (mareuko)
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Marco.”
Kyejin: 제 이름은 마르코입니다. (Je ireumeun mareukoimnida.)
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Catherine” with “Marco.” Say “My name is Marco.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 제 이름은 마르코입니다. (Je ireumeun mareukoimnida.)

Gabriella: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you're visiting South Korea and someone asks you your name. Your name is “Michael.” Respond to the question.
