[Beginner] Week 6


Lesson Summary 3-27


Please see below for yesterday's lesson summary:

1. 있어요/없어요 "there is(are)/ there is(are) not"

Use 있어요 when something exists, 없어요 when something does not. Place the subject marker 이/가 after the noun which exists (or not) and then 있어요/없어요 (ex. 의자가 있어요. 의자가 없어요)

2. Place marker -에

Putting the place marker -에 after a noun indicates a spacial location. (ex. 폴이 공원에 있어요./ 공원에 폴이 있어요.) It does not matter whether the object is specified before the location, or vice versa. However, as with all verbs, 있어요 and 없어요 always comes at the end of a sentence.

3. The question word 어디 "where"

Using 어디, followed by the place marker 에 with the verb 있어요 allows you to ask where something is located. (ex. 선생님이 어디에 있어요? 선생님이 학교에 있어요.)

4. Location

- 위에

- 아래에/ 밑에

- 앞에

- 뒤에

- 옆에 (오른쪽에, 왼쪽에)

- O하고 X 사이에

- 안에

- 밖에

5. 이 근처에 ... 있어요? "Is there ... near here?"

This question allows you to ask if there is a specific place near your current place. (ex. 이 근처에 은행 있어요? "Is there a bank near here?")

6. Vocabulary: Place names

집, 편의점, 은행, 병원, 약국, 학교, 극장, 백화점, 식당, 회사, 가게, 시장, 주차장, 주유소, 대사관, 공항, 공원, 서점, 우체국, 커피숍

Please let me know if you have any questions about yesterday's lesson.

Also, I totally forgot to remind you during our lesson yesterday that we will meet this coming Wednesday, March 30th @6:30 PM for our next lesson.

그럼, 수요일에 만나요! See you all on Wednesday.
