TTMIK Level 2 Lesson 4 In this lesson, we are introducing two new words, 하고 and (이)랑. These are conjunctive words that are used to link two nouns together with the meaning of "and", and also to express the meaning of "together with". Listen in to find out how they are used in actual conversations.

And from this lesson on, we are trying something new: we are going to have our friends appear in our lessons introducing their own sample phrases, so that you, our listeners, can have access to a wider range of sample sentences and also have a chance to listen to Korean native speakers other than our teachers. But don't worry. Our friends' sample sentences are NOT going to REPLACE the sample sentences by the two hosts 경은 and 현우. We are just adding more sample phrases.

We hope you enjoy this lesson as well, and let us know what you think!

And if you listen to the end of the lesson, write your answer for the little quiz at the end in the comment box! Thank you.

안녕하세요. ^^ In this lesson, we are looking at the object marking particles. As we mentioned a few times through our previous lessons, there are different types of particles in Korean, and these particles (subject marking particles, topic marking particles, location marking particles, and so on) are what make it easy to understand Korean sentences, even when the word order changes.
