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's the weather like today?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 오늘 날씨가 어떻습니까?
(oneul nalssiga eotteosseumnikka?)
Brandon: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 오늘
(oneul)
Brandon: which is “today” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 오늘 (oneul)
(regular) 오늘 (oneul)
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 오늘
(oneul)
{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: 날씨
(nalssi)
Brandon: meaning “weather.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 날씨 (nalssi)
(regular) 날씨 (nalssi)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 날씨
(nalssi)
Brandon: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 오늘 날씨
{pause}
Brandon: Next is,
Kyejin: 가
(ga)
Brandon: the topic-marking particle
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 가 (ga)
(regular) 가 (ga)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 가
(ga)
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 오늘 날씨가
(oneul nalssiga)
{pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 어떻습니까
(eotteosseumni)
Brandon: this sentence means something like “how is”, as in a question.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 어떻습니까
(eotteosseumni)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 어떻습니까
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 오늘 날씨가 어떻습니까?
(oneul nalssiga eotteosseumnikka?)
{pause}
Brandon: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.
Now, take a look at the first answer to the question “How is the weather today?”. ‘It’s Sunny.’
Kyejin: 맑습니다.
(maksseumnida)
Brandon: "It's sunny.”
Kyejin: (Slow) 맑습니다. (maksseumnida)
(regular) 맑습니다. (maksseumnida)
{pause}
Brandon: Listen to the answer again,. Say ‘It’s sunny.’
Kyejin: 맑습니다.
{pause}
Brandon: Let’s take a look at the next answer. ‘It’s cloudy.’
Kyejin: 흐립니다.
Brandon: It’s cloudy.
Kyejin: (slow) 흐립니다.
(regular) 흐립니다.
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again. Say ‘It’s cloudy.’
{pause}
Kyejin: 흐립니다.
Brandon: Let’s take a look at the next answer. ‘It’s raining.’
Kyejin: 비가 옵니다.
Brandon: "It’s raining.”
Kyejin: (Slow) 비가 옵니다.
Kyejin: 비가 옵니다.
Brandon: Let’s break down the answer. The first word
Kyejin: 비
Brandon: means “rain”
Kyejin: 가
Brandon: is the subject marking particle. And lastly,
Kyejin: 옵니다.
Brandon: means ‘to come.’ So it literally means ‘Rain is coming..’
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the answer again. Say ‘It’s raining.’
Kyejin: 비가 옵니다.
Brandon: Let’s take a look at the next answer. ‘It’s snowing.’
Kyejin: 눈이 옵니다.
Brandon: "It’s snowing.”
Kyejin: (Slow) 눈이 옵니다.
Kyejin: 눈이 옵니다.
Brandon: Let’s break down the answer. The first word
Kyejin: 눈
Brandon: means “snow” and..
Kyejin: 이
Brandon: is the subject marking particle. And lastly the word,
Kyejin: 옵니다.
Brandon: means ‘to come.’ So it literally means ‘Snow is coming..’
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the answer again. Say “It’s snowing.”
Kyejin: 눈이 옵니다.

How would you conjugate 눈이 오다, 흐리다, and 맑다 in the present tense, but informally? I feel like i'm getting it wrong.

Hi Nisha,


You got the 이/가 part right.

And your doubt about the sentence is also legitimate. :wink:

인도는 날씨가 흐립니다.


감사합니다.

Wait... When I said 인도에서 날씨가 흐립니다, I dont think the 인도에서 in 인도에서 날씨가 흐립니다 is correct. I have a feeling 에서 should be replaced by something. Can you help me out here?


감사합니다 !

안녕하세요 !


흐립니다. (It is cloudy). And it's making me sleepy too! :sleeping:


Is this how you say 'the weather is cloudy in India': 인도에서 날씨가 흐립니다 ?


Taking the two subject marking particles 가 and 이, 가 is used when the previous syllable doesn't have a bat-chim and 이 is used when the previous syllable has a batchim, as in 비가 (Rain) and 눈이(Snow). Am I right? Because I remember getting confused as to when to use what. :sweat_smile:


감사합니다 !
