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.

Lesson focus

Gabriella: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question “Where do you live?” In Korean, this is
Kyejin: 어디에 살고 있습니까?
Gabriella: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 어디
Gabriella: meaning "where" in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 어디
Gabriella: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디
{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: 에
Gabriella: the place marking particle, meaning "in" or “at”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 에
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 에
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에
{pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 살고 있습니
Gabriella: the verb-stem of the verb
Kyejin: 살고 있습니다
Gabriella: meaning ‘to live.’ or ‘to be living.’
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 살고 있습니
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 살고 있습니
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에 살고 있습니
{pause}
Gabriella: Next is
Kyejin: 까
Gabriella: the question marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에 살고 있습니까?
{pause}
Gabriella: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Where do you live?”
Kyejin: 뉴욕에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: "I live in New York city.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 뉴욕에 살고 있습니다.
{pause}
Gabriella: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 뉴욕
Gabriella: is “New York city.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 뉴욕
Gabriella: Now repeat
Kyejin: 뉴욕
{Pause}
Gabriella: Next is
Kyejin: 에
Gabriella: “place marking particle” meaning "in". or “at”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 에
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 에
{Pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: meaning "to be living" or "to live".
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 살고 있습니다
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 살고 있습니다
{Pause}
Gabriella: To use a different phrase, replace “New York City” with “Seoul.”
Kyejin: 서울
Gabriella: Seoul
Kyejin: (slow) 서울 (regular) 서울
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Seoul.”
Kyejin: 서울에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “New York” with “Seoul.” Say “I live in Seoul.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 서울에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: To expand on the pattern, replace “Seoul” with “Tokyo.”
Kyejin: 도쿄
Gabriella: Tokyo
Kyejin: (slow) 도쿄 (regular) 도쿄
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Tokyo.”
Kyejin: 도쿄에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Seoul” with “Tokyo.” Say “I live in Tokyo.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 도쿄에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: To expand on the pattern, replace “Tokyo” with “Hanoi”
Kyejin: 하노이
Gabriella: Hanoi
Kyejin: (slow) 하노이 (regular) 하노이
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Hanoi”
Kyejin: 하노이에 살고 있습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “Tokyo” with “Hanoi” Say “I live in Hanoi”
{pause}
Kyejin: 하노이에 살고 있습니다.

Gabriella: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea and someone asks where you live. You live in New York City. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 어디에 살고 있습니까?
(five seconds) 뉴욕에 살고 있습니다.
