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 did you learn Korean?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어를 배웠습니까?
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: 에서
Gabriella: location particle meaning 'from', 'at', 'in.'
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 에서
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 에서
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에서
{pause}
Gabriella: Next is
Kyejin: 한국어
Gabriella: meaning ‘Korean language.’
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 한국어
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 한국어
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어
{pause}
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 를
Gabriella: the object marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 를
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 를
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어를
{pause}
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 배웠습니
Gabriella: This is the verb-stem of the verb
Kyejin: 배웠습니다
Gabriella: meaning ‘learned’ or ‘have learned’ in Korean.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 배웠습니
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 배웠습니
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the the first 5 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어를 배웠습니
{pause}
Gabriella: And next
Kyejin: 까
(ka)
Gabriella: question marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
(ka)
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
(ka)
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어를 배웠습니까?
{pause}
Gabriella: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Where did you learn Korean?”
Kyejin: 학교에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: "I learned it in school.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 학교에서 배웠습니다.
{pause}
Gabriella: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word is:
Kyejin: 학교
Gabriella: meaning “school.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 학교
Gabriella: Now repeat
Kyejin: 학교
{Pause}
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 에서
Gabriella: location particle meaning 'from', 'at' or 'in.'
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 에서
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 에서
{Pause}
Gabriella: And after that
Kyejin: 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: meaning “learned,” or “have learned.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 배웠습니다
Gabriella: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 배웠습니다
{Pause}
Gabriella: Listen to the speaker say, “I learned it in school.,” and then repeat.
Kyejin: 학교에서 배웠습니다.
{pause}
Gabriella: To make another phrase, replace “in school” with “in South Korea.”
Kyejin: 한국에서
Gabriella: in South Korea
Kyejin: (slow) 한국에서
(regular) 한국에서
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “in South Korea.”
Kyejin: 한국에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “in school” with “in South Korea.” Say “I learned it in South Korea.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 한국에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: To make another phrase, replace “in South Korea” with “at a language school.”
Kyejin: 어학원에서
Gabriella: at a language school
Kyejin: (slow) 어학원에서
(regular) 어학원에서
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “at a language school.”
Kyejin: 어학원에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “in South Korea” with “at a language school.” Say “I learned it at a language school.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 어학원에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: To expand on the pattern, replace “at a language school” with “at a university.”
Kyejin: 대학교에서
Gabriella: at a university
Kyejin: (slow) 대학교에서 (regular) 대학교에서
Gabriella: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “at a university.”
Kyejin: 대학교에서 배웠습니다.
Gabriella: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “at a language school” with “at a university.” Say “I learned it at a university”
{pause}
Kyejin: 대학교에서 배웠습니다.

Gabriella: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea and someone asks you where you learned Korean. You learned Korean in school. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 어디에서 한국어를 배웠습니까?

Hi 아린,


One other thing, when the sentence is polite, you need to use 저는 instead of 나는:


-->저는 인터넷으로 배웠습니다.

Okay, so in that case 나는 시내버스로 갑니다 for example, should translate to "I go by city bus", because I go somewhere on a bus, right?

Hi Nisha,


(으)로 is a direction particle which can be translated as with, by, on, in.

1. It is used for means by which you do something. "나는 책으로 공부한다."

2. It is used for a destination/place which you are headed. "나는 학교로 갔다."


"집에서 KoreanClass101.com으로 공부해요." [I study at home with KoreanClass101.com.]


Hope this helps. :)
