TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 22

In this lesson, we are introducing some 하다 [ha-da] verbs. When we introduced the present tense conjugation in Lesson #16, and the past tense in Lesson #17, we mentioned that 하다 [ha-da] is conjugated in a special way, because it is followed by 여요 or 였어요 even though all the other verbs whose verb stems end in ㅏ[a] are followed by 아요 or 았어요.

And there is another reason that 하다 [ha-da] is unique. It is because you can easily form new verbs by putting nouns before 하다. This does not apply to all the Korean nouns, but you can add 하다 after many Korean nouns and form new verbs. Listen in to find out how that works and leave us comments if you have any questions! 감사합니다.

TTMIK Interview #5 [Advanced Level]

Hello everyone! We are back with another interview. This interview is 100% in Korean, but Koshiba Yuichi, as you might have guessed from the name, is not Korean, but Japanese. 경은 interviewed Yuichi and asked him some questions about his experiences in learning the Korean language. Yuichi speaks very fluent Korean, so we hope this Korean conversation between 경은 and Yuichi will be good listening practice for you, as well as a good opportunity how a Japanese person finds learning Korean. Every single word spoken in this interview is transcribed in the free PDF lesson note.

TTMIK Level 1 Lesson 20 PDF

We are back with another number lesson! In lesson 15, we introduced the sino-Korean system and today we are introducing the native Korean number system. Having two separate ways of counting different things might look too complicated, and we will be surprised if you can memorize all the numbers at once and never forget them, but if you keep practicing the numbers in context, you will find it much easier in time. So today, we are going to first introduce the native Korean numbers, and ONLY going to cover how to say your age in Korean. If you can say how old you are in Korean after listening to this lesson, this lesson will have achieved its goal. Thank you!
