Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Brandon: 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.

Lesson focus

Brandon: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question “What time is it?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
Brandon: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 지금
(jigeum)
Brandon: meaning “now” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 지금
(jigeum)
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 지금
(jigeum)
{Pause}
Brandon: 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: 몇시
(myeossi)
Brandon: meaning “what time” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 몇시
(myeossi)
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 몇시
(myeossi)
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 입니
(imni)
Brandon: The verb-stem of the verb
Kyejin: 입니다.
Brandon: meaning something like “is.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 입니
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 입니
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니
(myeossiimni)
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 까
(kka)
Brandon: the question marker
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
{pause}
Brandon: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “What time is it?”
Kyejin: 12시입니다.
(yeolddusiimnida.)
Brandon: "It's 12 o'clock”. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 12시입니다.
(yeolddusiimnida.)
{pause}
Brandon: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 12시
(yeolddusi)
Brandon: means “12 o'clock.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 12시 (yeolddusi)
Brandon: Now repeat
Kyejin: 12시 (yeolddusi)
{Pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 입니다
(imnida)
Brandon: sentence ending particle meaning something like ‘is.’
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 입니다
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 입니다
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the speaker say, “It's 12 o'clock”, and then repeat.
Kyejin: 12시입니다.
(열두시 입니다, yeolddusiimnida.)
{pause}
Brandon: To use a different phrase, replace “12 o'clock” with “10 o'clock.”
Kyejin: 10시
(열시 yeolssi)
Brandon: 10 o'clock
Kyejin: (slow) 10시 (열시 yeolssi)
(regular) 10시 (열시 yeolssi)
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “10 o'clock”
Kyejin: 10시입니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “12 o'clock” with “10 o’clock.” Say “It's 10 o'clock.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 10시입니다.
(열시 입니다, yeolssiimnida.)
Brandon: To make another phrase, replace “10 o'clock” with “3 o'clock.”
Kyejin: 3시
(세시, sesi)
Brandon: 3 o'clock
Kyejin: (slow) 3시 (세시, sesi)
(regular) 3시 (세시, sesi)
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “3 o'clock”
Kyejin: 3시입니다.
(세시, sesi)
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “10 o'clock” with “3 o’clock.” Say “It's 3 o'clock.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 3시입니다
(세시입니다, sesiimnida)
Brandon: To expand on the pattern, replace “3 o'clock” with “9 o'clock.”
Kyejin: 9시
(아홉시, ahopssi)
Brandon: 9 o'clock
Kyejin: (slow) 9시 (아홉시, ahopssi)
(regular) 9시 (아홉시, ahopssi)
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “9 o'clock”
Kyejin: 9시입니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 3 o'clock with 9 o’clock. Say “It's 9 o'clock.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 9시입니다.
(아홉시입니다, ahopssiimnida)
QUIZ
Brandon: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea and someone asks you what time it is now. It's 12 o'clock. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
(five seconds) 12시입니다.
(열두시 입니다, yeolddusiimnida.)
Brandon: Now imagine it's 10 o'clock. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
(five seconds) 10시입니다.
(열시 입니다, yeolssiimnida.)
Brandon: Imagine it's 3 o'clock. Answer the speaker's question.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
(five seconds) 3시입니다
(세시입니다, sesiimnida)
Brandon: Imagine it's 9 o'clock. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
(five seconds) 9시입니다.
(아홉시입니다, ahopssiimnida)
Brandon: You want to ask someone what time it is. Ask the question
(5 seconds)
Kyejin: 지금 몇시입니까?
(jigeum myeossiimnikka?)
{pause}
