[TTMIK L1|Lesson 18-20]


날짜: 2016년 6월 25일

출처: TTMIK Level 1

Lesson 18:
어디: where
~에: to, at (existence)
-Also used to mark time and situation
~에서: from (a place), at (action taking place)
지금: now

Note: 에 and 에서 are used way more frequently than 은/는 and 이/가 as they serve to clarify meaning

Lesson 19:
언제: when

Lesson 20: Native Korean numbers
1: 하나 (한~ when before a counter)
2: 둘 (두~)
3: 셋 (세~)
4: 넷 (네~)
5: 다섯
6: 여섯
7: 일곱
8: 여덟
9: 아홉
10: 열

10: 열
20: 스물 (스무~)
30: 서른
40: 마흔
50: 쉰
60: 예순
70: 일흔
80: 여든
90: 아흔

*For numbers 100 and above, sino-Korean numbers are used for the larger units
So, 543983 in a situation where native Korean numbers are to be used would be:
>오십사만 삼천 구백 여든 셋

*When telling time, native Korean numbers are used for the hour and sino-Korean numbers are used for the minutes

*In everyday conversations, native Korean numbers are used for age, but sino-Korean numbers are used in very formal settings (e.g. court of law, news report, official documents)

*Either sino-Korean numbers or native Korean numbers can be used for counting years, but the counters are different in each case

살: counter for age
-Also means fat, flesh
