Hello everyone! When you meet someone for the first time, how do you greet, say hello, in Korean? How about asking someone's nationality or their job? In this module you will learn how to ask those questions and how to respond. In this unit you are going to learn how to great a person and how to say your name in Korean. First of all, shall we take a look at the conversation? Take close attention please. 안녕하세요 저는 김수지예요. 안녕하세요 제 이름은 저스틴이에요. Let's examine the dialog between these two people. 안녕하세요? 저는 김수지예요. translates to hello, I'm Suzi Kim. 안녕하세요 제 이름은 저스틴이에요. translates to hello, my name is Justin. 안녕하세요 when translated literally becomes, are you in peace? You add ~세요? a question, sentence ending to 안녕하다 which means to be in peace, in order to form 안녕하세요. Listen to it once more, and repeat it please. 안녕하세요. 저는 김수지예요. 안녕하세요. 제 이름은 저스틴이에요. Well done. We are going to take a closer look at the pronunciations. The final consonant M in the second syllable 름 of 이름은 is prolonged to the next syllable 은. So we pronounce it 믄. Likewise, 저스틴이에요 is pronounced 저스트니에요. Now, let's try it again. 이름은 저스틴이에요 저스틴이에요 Excellent. At this time, let's have a look at the vocabulary. 이름 is name in English. This is the noun form from the verb 이르다 which means to call. 이름 안녕하세요? means are you in peace when translated literally, as I mentioned. But in English, it's more a form of greeting like hello or how are you? Regardless of whether it's day or night you say 안녕하세요? We don't have any English greetings like good morning, good afternoon, and goodnight. Of course, among younger generations or friends of the same age, between young people as well, they generally greet one another by saying 안녕? A more formal way of greeting would be 안녕하십니까? Using a different honorific sentence ending ~십니까? 안녕하십니까? First, when you introduce yourself you say 저는 ~이에요. 저는 ~이에요. 저 is the English equivalent of I, and combined with 는, a topic maker in the sentence, it becomes the subject. And you say 저는 to introduce yourself. They are what are called subject particles, e or and you will learn them in the future. In English, we say Suzy Kim, putting the first name first and then the last name. However, when we say names in Korean we say the family name first and then the first name. So the correct way to say it would be Kim, the last name, and then Suzy, the first name. Last name first, and first name last. If it has no final consonant in the last syllable of the name, you use 예요. And if there is a final consonant, you use 이에요. This is why we say 저는 김수지예요. Why we say 저스틴이에요. Shall we practice it together? 배유나. 저는 배유나예요. 이민호 저는 이민호예요. 이민호 is a Korean male's name. 이소영 저는 이소영이에요. 이소영 is a Korean female's name. 한영민 저는 한영민이에요. Usually 한영민 is a Korean male's name. Well done. When you introduce yourself by saying your name, you say 제 이름은 ~예요 or ~이에요. 제 would be the English equivalent of my, and 제 이름은 would translate to my name is ~. Shall we practice it together? 소피 제 이름은 소피예요. Sophie is most likely a French name, I assume. 제 이름은 소피에요. 리키 제 이름은 리키예요. 리키 is an English name. Ricky. Susan. 제 이름은 수잔이에요. 다니엘 제 이름은 다니엘이에요. My name is Daniel. Well done. Now, do you think you will be able to say your name and introduce yourself in Korean? This time, try to do it on your own. Now, let's look at additional vocabulary. 뭐예요? is a contracted form of 무엇이에요? 무엇, which means what, in English. 이다 is to be in English. 예요? or 이에요? which is question ending. So, 뭐예요? means what is it? So, this means 이름이 뭐예요? 이름이 뭐예요? What is your name? 안녕히 가세요. is an expression combining the verb 가다, which means to go, and an imperative ending 세요. The literal translation is please go in peace. And we use this expression when a person who is staying is saying bye to a person who is leaving. 안녕히 가세요. On the other hand, 안녕히 계세요 combines the verb 계시다 an honorific of 있다, which means to stay or to be in a place. And imperative endings 세요. This expression translates as please stay in peace which is said by the person leaving to the person staying. 안녕히 계세요. 고맙습니다. is thank you in English. We have another expression, 감사합니다, which is from Chinese characters. 고맙습니다. 만나서 반가워요 is I'm glad to meet you, or nice to meet you. 만나서 반가워요. I'm so glad to have you in this Korean class, so I'd say 여러분 만나서 반가워요. and 고맙습니다. This is it. Bye.
