Lesson 3

​한국 사람 아니에요.

In the last lesson we learned the Korean  'be' verb.  This time let's learn the negative version. Traveling and  experiencing different cultures is one of my favorite things.  I thought it might be fun to learn some country names.  Check them out in the vocabulary below.   ↓↓↓

By the way, don't get offended if we didn't include your country; most country names are the Korean equivalent of their native pronunciation.  So 러시아 is Russia, and 캐나다 is Canada.  We didn't include those.  We mostly added the countries that have unique Korean names.  Want to practice them?  Do so with the flashcards below.

Match the words and flags below.  Apologies to the English, and Northern Irish, too.  We used the Union Jack as England's flag.  It's just easier than explaining it to Americans.    ↓↓↓

Again, just kidding, Americans!  (Oh, who am I kidding?  We know Americans don't learn Korean.)
*Pro-tip:  This activity only shows 8/10 words.  If you want a new set of random cards, hit that red!

Learn these words, and let's double your knowledge of Korean grammar in DAY 2

Lesson 3 Grammar:


Day 2

OK, we've learned this grammar:

~예요 / ~이에요​​ (to be)

 Now it's time to learn the opposite:

(Noun)  아니에요​​ (to not be)


  • Just like the positive ~예요, you can only use this with nouns.  So you can't say 저는 stupid 아니에요.  Well, if you do, you're using stupid as a name.

  • The positive endings ~예요 and ~이에요 are attached to the nouns, but 아니에요  isn't.  You have to keep a space in between.

  • Like the positive version, you can use this ending for questions too.  

Try your hand at the quiz below.

You're getting this.  When you're ready, we can move on to Day 3 for some practice.
