Hello Hama! I have a question. It might sound stupid, but I keep thinking about it. In Korean, we use characters (symbols) for numbers as well, or we use the common numbers, like 1, 2, 3?

@Morinaga's Girl... don't worry... it's not sound stupid at all...

Well you could use just number like 1,2,3...

Or you could write in korean...

일, 이, 삼, 사, 오, 육, 칠, 팔, 구, 십...(general number)

or 하나, 둘, 셋, 넷, 다섯, 여섯, 일곱, 여덟, 아홉, 열...(used durnig counting)

or 첫번째, 두번째, 세번째, 네번째, 다섯번째, 여섯번째, 일곱번째, 여덟번째, 아홉번째, 열번째...(in number in order)

I hope this is what you are asking... ^^;;;

You could make a new thread, "Korean Number System" if you want. It would be easier to see by others who are interested in it :) I don't have any kind of special request about it.

Just simple thing, how do we count, how do we pronounce the numbers from 1 to 10 :)

@Morinaga's Girl... I might open Basic Korean word...

There is thread for writting but writting doesn't mean all the word...

So I will try to open thread about word and do some number there...

Say hama, I've always been interested in Korean,but can I ask for the exact pronouncing of the words? As in, you put the Latin letters, but I have no idea the combination between them how is read.

Something like simplifying the romaji,I guess.

 

Like,which letters might be not read when you see the Latin version, which are nasal sounds and so on. (:

Just thinking that it will help a lot. (:

@Saga... most Korean what you see is what you said...

Some sound to change little but, most of them are almost same as what original sound it is...

I am try to put the sound when I write a word...

And all the sound of each consonants and vowels is at the Basic Korean writting part...

But, as lesson go I will try to explain how the some of consonants change or lose their sound and so on...

 

I might try to find a way to put the sound of each word...

But for now only thing I can do for the pronouncing is use the

I put at Basic Korean writting...

I am not good with written lesson...

I am use to more one on one and face to face lesson...

So this is kind of new to me too...

 

So be patience with me and I will try to find a way to put better pronounciation...

All is there other way to put then just english pronounciation?

I didn't used latin letters... everything is in engish way...

I don't know latin letters way... I thought about it but I don't know how too type that... --;;;

So if you know other way let me know...

Sorry I could help on this right away...

I am also try to learning how to give a lesson here... --;;;

That's what are partners for.

Actually you do use Latin letters even now XD English is with Latin letters. (:

Well, I know only a few Korean words and some stuff for numbers. As you can see,my Korean is far for even to a beginner's one.

But as a teacher,I'd first go with Latin letters(English letters) and will leave the kanji aside. At least for the beginners. They'll have the Korean words and what not,but written with English letters.

Later on,in a thread for people that are good at Korean,you freely can use as many kanji as you want. It's my opinion. (:

@Saga... Well... Korean and Eglish pronounciation are little different so it's hart do pust Korean into engish sometime...

So I alway end up have to write both...

For Korean you just have to used to each consonants and vowels first...

As I said it before Korean is what you see is what you say it...

Not much change in pronounciation... some word do change but most of them stay as what you see...

So first is know what each consonants and vowels looks like and sound like...

Then putting together and make a work...

It's hard to put just english word only for the word... but, as you said...

I might go one section with the picture and word and sound...

But, even for the little kids we use Korean not too much english at all...

So I kind of not used to us only english in the lesson for Korean...

But, I will try to find way that what you told me to do...

But, as I said before it will take time so be patience with me...

I think you didn't get my idea. (:

I have patience and I am in no rush. Just,hangul romanization,I've seen two kinds of romanizations.

The one is the official one,but the other is simplified. So,I asked,is it the simplified-you read what you see.

You answered the question already,but I didn't say to use only English in your lessons. Just more romanization than kanji,at least for newbies. Of course,it's a suggestion. I can't tell you how to teach your language,dear. (:

Just speaking both as a teacher and as a student.

Thank you for hearing me out.

@Well... for the Basic Korean writting are for the first basic of Korean learning...

And the word part is for the middle and the conversation is for the upper level...

I need to chang title to tell the level... but, I don't know I can't fix that... --;;;

Any way... thank you for clear up little bit of that...

But, I still don't know what you mean by simplified... --;;;

Can I use Japanese to explain myself? Lol.

In romanization,let's take an expression for example:

Romanized:

Sō desu (Sou desu)

Simplified:

Soo des(u)

 

See the ō? In romanization,if I am not told how it affects the word,I won't know. Although,the 'u' is written,in simplified we drop all sounds that aren't pronounced and type it as it should be read. Long 'o' - Soo des. (Sou desu)

 

But,yeah. I got you. (:

@Saga... I think I know what you mean...

But, if you put two of o is sound u... so it's that better to put so~o sound like long o sound.. ^^;;;

The best is people to really sound other then see the written pronounciation...

If I have better voice I could record the sound of word and post here so people could see and hear to understand better...

But, my voice is not really good for the recording... I get cold a lot so it's hard for me to get right voice... --;;;

Any way... I will try to find away... somehow... I might end up recording my voice... --;;;;;;

ehy. Uhm, I have another question.

Can you differentiate:

neoreul

naruel

neonun

naneun

naege

eobseo

su eobseo

 

I mostly see these words in the lyrics. So I'm just wondering what they are.

Thanks :)

너를(Neo-reul)

나를(Na-reul)

Well... 너 mean 'You' and 나 mean 'I'

를 is object postposition

Let use in the sentence...

나는 너를 잊을 수 없어!(Na-neun neo-reul eot-eul soo eob-seo!) I can forget about 'you'!

나를 생각해!(Na-reul saeng-gak-hae!) Remember 'me'!

 

너는(Neo-neun)

나는(Na-neun)

는 is assist postposition

Let use in the sentence...

너는 내게 무슨 의미?(Neo-neun Nea-ge moo-seon ui-mi?) What do 'you' mean to me?

나는 너를 사랑해!(Na-neun neo-reul sa-rang-hae!) 'I' love you!

 

내게(Nae-ge)

This one is can be said 'to me' or 'me'...

내게 사랑을 주고 간 너...(Nae-ge sa-rang-eul joo-go gan neo...) You leave with love 'to me'...

 

없어(Eob-seo)

수 없어(Su eob-seo)

It mean 'no longer here' or 'gone'... so one...

So in the sentence...

너는 없어.(Neo-neun eob-seo) You are 'not here' or You're 'gone'.

나는 더 이상 널 생각 할 수 없어.(Na-neon deo ee-sang neol saeng-gak hal soo eob-seo) I 'can't' think of you any more.

 

I don't know this explain what you ask for...

Most lyrics don't fully use right grammer...

It's like english they have to make it go with the rhythm...

So even they didn't said I or you in it but when you translate you have to put that to understand what is mean...

I have problem with my arm and hand so I can't type too long...

I wish I could explain little more too you but for now I have to stop here...

Sorry...

OMG. T_T There are so many.

I thought Na means I

but in your example it's ME, so I thought it basically means ME

 

but in Naege, you said it's ME

 

and so many other... T_T

I'm a very very very slow one when it comes to languages. T_T

Basic Na(나) is I...

But, with what come next or how it been used

Na can change into Me...

Also, Nae(내) can be Me or My...

This is all part about grammar...

And don't worry about learning slow... it's not only you...

Even I was born in Korea and learn Korean when I was at Korea...

But, still I don't know all the grammar...

And also make a mistake a lot..

So don't worry too much...

Just take you time and learn in your own pace...

Everyone learn in different speed and different way...

Just remember to enjoy learning it... ^^
