The 6th lesson teaches counting in cardinal and ordinal numbers in Korean. I also included a vocabulary list about school and finally common daily phrases. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Korean Classes.
Knowing how to count in Korean is essential and should be one of first things to learn. By simply knowing numbers from 1 to 9 you could express large numbers in a simplified way. Cardinal numbers are for counting such as "1, 2, 3 ...". Ordinal numbers represent order or rank such as "1st, 2nd, 3rd ...".
Below is a list of the first 20 cardinal and ordinal numbers that you might come across or use very often. The table contains 3 columns (English, Korean, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
|Thirty three (31)||서른셋/삼십삼|
|One hundred (100)||백|
|Three hundred and sixty (360)||삼백 육십|
|One thousand (1000)||천|
|Two thousand and fourteen (2014)||이천 십사|
Now we will try to implement some of the numbers above into full Korean sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
|I'm 30 years old||저는 서른 살입니다|
jeoneun seoleun sal-ibnida
|I have 2 sisters and 1 brother||저는 두 명의 여동생과 한 명의 남동생이 있습니다|
jeoneun du myeong-ui yeodongsaeng-gwa han myeong-ui namdongsaeng-i issseubnida
|English is my first language||영어는 저의 모국어입니다|
