Hyunwoo flew out to meet Korean learners at the National University of Singapore last week. We were invited by the Korean embassy in Singapore to give a talk on the topic of Korean culture and learning Korean. One of the questions he got during the Q&A sessions was about how to motivate yourself to continue learning. Hyunwoo shares his answer through this video.

Thank you to the Korean embassy in Singapore for making this event possible, to the NUS social media team for the interview opportunity and footage, and to everybody in the audience for attending the talk!

At TTMIK we teach the Korean language as it is spoken in South Korea, but the language spoken in North Korea is not entirely different. There are, however, still some differences you can immediately notice between the two styles of the Korean language, so we decided to give the North Korean language a try with our friend Joseph Park from North Korea. Our American friend Kris Johnson, with whom we made an interview video before, also joined Cassie. Enjoy!

You often see the words 그 and 그녀 used to refer to “he” and “she” respectively, but that is only in written text. If you say 그 or 그녀 in spoken Korean, you will sound very unnatural or too formal or poetic. Then how DO you actually talk about someone as “he” or “she” in Korean? You use the person’s name or title. In this video lesson, teacher Hyunwoo explains why you shouldn’t actually use the words 그 or 그녀 in spoken Korean.

오다 and 가다 are directly translated to “to come” and “to go” in English, but while in English you can say “I’m coming” to someone who is waiting for you to get there, you can’t use the word 오다 in Korean to express the same meaning. 오다 and 가다, and all the other related compound verbs that are introduced in this video lesson by Hyunwoo, are expressed through the perspective of the speaker, not the listener, and that creates a big difference between the usages of 오다/가다 and come/go.

Have you ever wondered why Koreans use social titles even among close family members, calling someone “so-and-so’s father” instead of saying their first name? This phenomenon can be found in other cultures, too, but perhaps this happens more frequently in Korean. There are three possible reasons for this: 1) Literally saying “you” can be more tricky and awkward in Korean if you are speaking formal language. 2) Just using the same title over and over again in many sentences in a row doesn’t bother most people. 3) To an extent, It shows on what the relationship is based and where it was formed.
