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 “Can you eat Korean food?” In Korean this is
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
Brandon: The first word in the question is
Kyejin: 한국음식
Brandon: meaning “Korean food” in English.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 한국음식
Brandon: Listen again and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식
{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: 을
Brandon: object marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 을
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 을
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을
{pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 먹을 수 있습니
Brandon: This is the form of the expression
Kyejin: 먹을 수 있습니다.
Brandon: meaning “can eat.”, “to be able to eat.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 먹을 수 있습니
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 먹을 수 있습니
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니
{pause}
Brandon: And next
Kyejin: 까
Brandon: question marking particle.
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 까
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 까
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까.
{pause}
Brandon: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question “Can you eat Korean food?”
Kyejin: 네. 맛있습니다.
Brandon: "Yes, it's delicious.” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Kyejin: (Slow) 네. 맛있습니다.
Brandon: Let's break the first response down from the beginning. The first word:
Kyejin: 네
Brandon: means “yes.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 네
Brandon: Now repeat
Kyejin: 네
{Pause}
Brandon: And next we have
Kyejin: 맛있습니다.
Brandon: meaning “delicious.” or “It’s delicious.”
Kyejin: (Slow, by syllable) 맛있습니다.
Brandon: Now repeat.
Kyejin: 맛있습니다.
{Pause}
Brandon: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, it's delicious.,” and then repeat.
Kyejin: 네. 맛있습니다.
{pause}
Brandon: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, it's delicious.,” and then repeat.
Kyejin: 네. 맛있습니다.
Brandon: To expand on the pattern, replace “It’s delicious” with “I like it very much.”
Kyejin: 매우 좋아합니다.
Brandon: I like it very much.
Kyejin: (slow) 매우 좋아합니다.
(regular) 매우 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “I like it very much”
Kyejin: 네. 매우 좋아합니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “It’s delicious” with “I like it very much”. Say “Yes, I like it very much.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 네. 매우 좋아합니다.
Brandon: To use a different phrase, first replace “I like it very much.” with “It’s healthy.”
Kyejin: 몸에 좋습니다.
Brandon: It’s healthy.
Kyejin: (slow) 몸에 좋습니다.
(regular)몸에 좋습니다.
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “Yes, it’s healthy.’
Kyejin: 네. 몸에 좋습니다.
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the “I like it very much.” with “It’s healthy”. Say “Yes, it’s healthy.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 네. 몸에 좋습니다.
Brandon: To use a different phrase, replace “It’s healthy.” with “I don’t like it that much.”
Kyejin: 별로 안 좋아합니다.
Brandon: I don’t like it that much.
Kyejin: (slow) 별로 안 좋아합니다.
(regular) 별로 안 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “I don’t like it that much’ In this case, it sounds more natural to say ‘No’ at the beginning of the sentence.
Kyejin: 아니요. 별로 안 좋아합니다. (Aniyo, beyollo an joahamnida / Sentence A)
Brandon: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “It’s healthy.” with “I don’t like it that much.” Say “I don’t like it that much.”
{pause}
Kyejin: 별로에요. (-> It should be ‘아니요. 별로 안 좋아합니다.’)
(byeolloeyo / Sentence B)
Brandon: To say "No, I cannot eat it." to this question, just say:
Kyejin: 아니요. 먹을 수 없습니다.
Brandon: It means ‘No, I cannot.’ in English. Let's hear it slowly
{pause}
Kyejin: (slowly) 아니요. 먹을 수 없습니다.
Brandon: And one more time at normal speed. Let’s listen to the question and the answer together.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
Kyejin: 아니요. 먹을 수 없습니다.
{Pause}
QUIZ
Brandon: Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting South Korea and someone asks if you can eat Korean food. You want to answer that it is delicious. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
(five seconds) 네. 맛있습니다.
Brandon: Now, you want to say that you like it very much.Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
(five seconds) 네. 매우 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Now, you want to say that “It’s healthy”. Respond to the question.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
(five seconds)
네. 몸에 좋습니다.
Brandon: Now, you want to say that “I don’t like it that much.”Answer the speaker's question.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
(five seconds) 아니요. 별로 안 좋아합니다.
Brandon: Now you want to ask someone if they can eat Korean food. Ask the question.
(5 seconds)
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
{pause}
Brandon: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Kyejin: 한국음식을 먹을 수 있습니까?
{pause}

Brandon: This is the end of Lesson 8

안녕하세요, Cynthia 씨!


Thanks for posting, and here comes the answer. :)

Q. How would I say that 'I like Korean food a lot, especially spicy ramen/spicy food'? Would it be "한국음식을 매운라면 매우 좋아합니다"?

A. 저는 한국 음식을 정말 좋아합니다. 특히 매운 라면같은 매운 음식을 좋아합니다.

[정말] means "very/a lot".

[특히] means "especially".

[-같은] means "like -", so in this case, it is written as "I like spicy food like spicy ramen."

Hope this answered your question, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have more questions!


Best,

Rebecca

Hi Felix,


Thanks for posting. Of course, using '반말' would be natural if it was used in a conversation between friends or very casual acquaintances. However, when you are meeting people for the first time, or are in a business/formal environment, you would need to use the polite expressions that you have learned in this lesson. So in actuality, knowing both informal and formal expressions is necessary. :smile:


Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.

Sincerely,

Lyn

Isn't it a bit confusing to use dictionnary verb forms in such a total beginner lesson? The sample dialogue sounds very unnatural, I hope they just use 반말 in future lessons....
