The 8th lesson contains the Korean pronouns including the subject, object and possessive forms. In addition, you will find a vocabulary list about travel and finally some general common 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.
Pronouns are a must to learn because they are part of almost every sentence. They make up about 20% of the daily language use which includes the subject, object and possessive pronoun. If there is an lesson you should NOT skip, this would be one of them.
We will start with the subject pronouns since it's the most used of the 4 forms 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.
|I love you||사랑합니다|
|She is beautiful||그녀는 아름다워요|
|They are dancing||그들은 춤을 추고있어요|
geudeul-eun chum-eul chugoiss-eoyo
|We are happy||우리는 행복해요|
Object pronouns are another important one you should make sure you master.
|Can you call us?||우리한테 전화 좀 해줄래요?|
ulihante jeonhwa jom haejullaeyo?
|Give me your phone number||저에게 당신 휴대폰 번호를 알려주세요|

Now we will discuss the possessive pronoun also called possessive determiners which is very straight forward and self explanatory. You use it when you want to express that something belongs to you but usually it comes before a noun.
|His email is...||그의 이메일은 ...입니다|
geuui imeil-eun ...ibnida
|My phone number is...||저의 휴대폰 번호는 ...입니다|
jeoui hyudaepon beonhoneun ...ibnida
|Our dream is to visit Spain||우리의 꿈은 스페인을 방문하는 것이에요|
uliui kkum-eun seupein-eul bangmunhaneun geos-ieyo
|Their country is beautiful||그들의 나라는 아름다워요|
geudeul-ui nalaneun aleumdawoyo

As for the possessive case of the pronoun, it is used differently because it does not have to come before a noun. Check out the examples!
|Yours||당신의 것/너의 것|
dangsin-ui geos/neoui geos
|Yours (plural)||당신들의 것/너희들의 것|
dangsindeul-ui geos/neohuideul-ui geos
|Is this pen yours?||이 펜은 당신의 것입니까?|
i pen-eun dangsin-ui geos-ibnikka?
|The book is mine||이 책은 나의 것입니다|
i chaeg-eun naui geos-ibnida
|The shoes are hers||이 신발들은 그녀의 것입니다|
i sinbaldeul-eun geunyeoui geos-ibnida
|Victory is ours||승리는 우리 것|

Below is a list of 31 words and expressions related to travel such as means of transportation, lodging and tourism. If you memorize them by heart, you will be able to get around the country and ask for directions much easier than if you did not.
|Bus station||버스 정류장|
