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 “Whose is this?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것입니까?
(i geoseun nugu geososimnikka?)
Brandon: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 이
Brandon: meaning “this” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 이
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 이
{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: 것
Brandon: meaning “thing”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 것
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 것
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것
{pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 은
(eun)
Brandon: the topic marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 은
(eun)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 은
(eun)
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것은
(i geoseun)
{pause}
Brandon: Next is
Kyejin: 누구
(nugu)
Brandon: meaning “who”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 누구
(nugu)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 누구
(nugu)
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구
(i geoseun nugu)
{pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 것
(geot)
Brandon: meaning “thing”.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 것
(geot)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 것
(geot)
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 5 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것
(i geoseun nugu geot)
{pause}
Brandon: next is
Kyejin: 입니
(imni)
Brandon: this is the verb-stem of the verb..
Kyejin: 입니다.
Brandon: meaning something like ‘to be.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 입니
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 입니
{pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 6 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것입니-
{pause}
Brandon: And after that
Kyejin: 까
(kka)
Brandon: the question marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것입니까?
(i geoseun nugu geososimnikka?)
{pause}
Brandon: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Whose is this?”
Kyejin: 제 것입니다.
(je geosimnida.)
Brandon: "It's mine.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 제 것입니다.
(je geosimnida.)
{pause}
Brandon: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 제
(je)
Brandon: means “my”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 제
(je)
Brandon: Now repeat
Kyejin: 제
(je)
{Pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 것
(geot)
means “thing.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 것
(geot)
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 것
(geot)
{Pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 입니다
(imnida)
Brandon: means something like “is.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 입니다
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 입니다
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the speaker say, “It's mine”, and then repeat.
Kyejin: 제 것입니다.
(je geosimnida.)
{pause}
Brandon: To expand on the pattern, replace “mine” with “his”.
Kyejin: 그 남자 것
(geu namja geot)
Brandon: his
Kyejin: (slow) 그 남자 것 (geu namja geot)
(regular) 그 남자 것 (geu namja geot)
Brandon: In this phrase, the first word
Kyejin: 그
Brandon: means ‘the’, and
Kyejin: 남자
Brandon: means “man.” So this phrase literally means ‘the man’s thing.’ Listen to the phrase again, this time with “his”
Kyejin: 그 남자 것입니다.
(geu namja geosimnida.)
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “mine” with “his”. Say “It's his”.
{pause}
Kyejin: 그 남자 것입니다.
(geu namja geosimnida.)
Brandon: To use a different phrase, replace “his” with “hers”.
Kyejin: 그 여자 것
(geu yeoja geot)
Brandon: hers
Kyejin: (slow) 그 여자 것 (geu yeoja geot)
(regular) 그 여자 것 (geu yeoja geot)
Brandon: In this phrase, the first word
Kyejin: 그
Brandon: means ‘the’, and
Kyejin: 여자
Brandon: means “woman.” So this phrase literally means ‘the woman’s thing.’ Listen to the phrase again, this time with “hers”
Kyejin: 그 여자 것입니다.
(geu yeoja geosimnida.)
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “his” with “hers”. Say “It's hers.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 그 여자 것입니다.
(geu yeoja geosimnida.)
Brandon: To make another phrase, replace “hers” with “Mr” or “Ms Smith’s.”
Kyejin: 스미스 씨 것
(seumisseu ssi geot)
Brandon: Mr/Ms Smith’s
Kyejin: (slow) 스미스 씨 것 (seumisseu ssi geot)
(regular) 스미스 씨 것 (seumisseu ssi geot)
Brandon: In this phrase, the first word
Kyejin: 스미스
Brandon: is the family name ‘Smith.’ And the suffix
Kyejin: 씨
Brandon: is like ‘Mr’ or ‘Ms.’ in English. This can be used for both men and women. Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Mr” or “Ms. Smith’s.”
Kyejin: 스미스 씨 것입니다.
(seimiseu ssi geosimnida.)
QUIZ
Brandon: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea, and someone asks you who something belongs to. You want to say “It's mine”. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것입니까?
(i geoseun nugu geososimnikka?)
(five seconds) 제 것입니다.
(je geosimnida.)
Brandon: Now, you want to say “It's his.” Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 이 것은 누구 것입니까?

(five seconds) 스미스 씨 것입니다.

Brandon: Imagine that you find something, and you want to know who it belongs to. Ask the question
(5 seconds)

(i geoseun nugu geososimnikka?)
{pause}

Hi Nisha,


Thanks for your positive feedback. :)


Suppose you want to say something like “This/that pencil is mine”, where would you add the word ‘pencil’?

You would add the topic marking particle 은/는 and say "이/저 펜은 제 것입니다."


감사합니다.

I'm really enjoying these Q & A lessons. I feel I can speak quite a lot of Korean, even though I know it's just a fraction of the whole language :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. But still, knowing how to ask and respond to TWENTY FIVE questions is a lot!


Love the lessons! :heart::thumbsup:


감사합니다 !
