TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 8

In this lesson, we are going to have a look at one way to make a negative sentence. Here, you can learn how to say that something is NOT something, like "It's not me." or "It's not a book." In Korean, if you want to say that something is NOT something you say the noun and add the expression 아니에요 [a-ni-e-yo] at the end. Listen to the lesson to find out more about this expression and be sure to check out the free PDF file too. If you have any questions, please ask us any questions in the comment! Thank you!

You can read more about 아니다 (a-ni-da) at this Korean Wiki Project page.

TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 7

In this lesson, you can learn how to say "this" "that" "it" and "the" in Korean. In English, "this" and "that" can work as both modifiers and pronouns, but you need to use different words in Korean. This is because in Korean "this" as in "this is a book" is composed of two parts, 이 (this) + 거 (thing). Find out more about how to use these words in Korean by listening to the lesson and checking out the free PDF file attached to the lesson. If you have any question, as always, please feel free to leave them here! 감사합니다!

TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 5 TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 5

http://TalkToMeInKorean.com


After studying with this lesson, you will be able to say things like “A is B(noun).” or “I am ABC(noun).” in polite/formal Korean.

이에요 / 예요 [i-e-yo / ye-yo]

이에요 and 예요 have a similar role to that of the English verb “to be”. The fundamental difference, however, is the sentence structure that they are used in.

English sentence structure:

ABC + [be] + DEF.

** DEF is a noun here.

Ex)

ABC is DEF.

I am ABC.

You are XYZ.

Korean sentence structure:

ABC + DEF + [be]

** DEF is a noun here.

Ex)

이거 ABC예요. [i-geo ABC-ye-yo] = This is ABC.

In English, the verb “to be” is changed to “am” “are” or “is” depending on the subject of the sentence, but in Korean, you decide whether to use 이에요 [i-e-yo] or 예요 [ye-yo] depending on whether the last letter in the previous word ended in a consonant or a vowel. 이에요 and 예요 are very similar and also sound similar so it is not such a big problem if you mix up these two, but it is better to know the correct forms.

When you want to say that ABC “is” DEF in Korean, if the word for “DEF” has a final consonant in the last letter, you add 이에요 [i-e-yo], but if it doesn’t have a final consonant and ends in a vowel, you add 예요 [ye-yo]. This is just to make the pronounciation of the connected part easier, so it will come naturally if you practice with some sample sentences.

Final consonant + 이에요 [i-e-yo]

No final consonant (Only vowel) + 예요 [ye-yo]

Sample sentences

물이에요. = 물 + 이에요 [mul + i-e-yo]

(It’s) water.

가방이에요. = 가방 + 이에요 [ga-bang + i-e-yo]

(It’s) a bag.

사무실이에요. = 사무실 + 이에요 [sa-mu-sil + i-e-yo]

(It’s) an office.

학교예요. = 학교 + 예요 [hak-gyo + ye-yo]

(It’s) a school.

저예요. = 저 + 예요 [jeo + ye-yo]

(It’s) me.

As you can see from the examples above, in Korean, you don’t have to use articles like “a/an” or “the” as in English. So when you look up a noun in your Korean dictionary, you can add 이에요 or 예요 and then it means “It is ABC.” “That is DEF.” “I am XYZ.”
You can also make this a question simply by raising the tone at the end of the sentence.


물이에요. [mul-i-e-yo] = It’s water.

물이에요? [mul-i-e-yo?] = Is that water? Is this water?

학교예요. [hak-gyo-ye-yo] = It’s a school.

학교예요? [hak-yo-ye-yo] = Is it a school? Are you at school now?

뭐 [mwo] = what

뭐예요? [mwo-ye-yo?] = What is it? What’s that?
