Easy And Simple Introduction In Korean

Do you like Korean as if you want to spend your life in their country? Well, I have plenty friends who love it so much. And of course, I also love Korean. Their cultures, languages, islands, histories, urban legends, even their fashion styles. In simple words, I want to say that I'm learning Korean because they are pretty attractive.


Working in the Korean language
The Korean language is easy and simple to understand. All we need to do is only working hard to get used to their various dialects and slangs​ which they use every day. Based on research and survey conducted by the Foreign Service Institute (FSI), commonly an English native speaker needs at least 2.200 hours to complete their Korean lessons​.

Because of the grammar between Indonesian and English has similarities, then as an Indonesian native speaker, I guess, I also need in about 2.200 hours or more!

However, don't try to think that the Korean language is very​ difficult, although that's the reality. But, let's make it fun, have fun, just fun, and only fun. Because when we are learning a new language, it will remind us when we were born.

Let's get some lessons about Korean
As a baby, we can't speak anything, right? We are using our face expression and body language to communicate with our families. Although, there's a huge language barrier between our mom and us. In the end, they can understand what we want through every sign from us.

And, once again, in the end, we are trying and keep trying to learn a language. Word by word. After time goes by, we add another foreign language skill. Even, more languages. Anyway, have you ever thought about why we need to learn a new language? Some people said that languages can open our minds.

Aha! You are here for learning some phrases, right? Such as, how to greet an old man or a friend whom you first met, read Hangul characters, or probably you want to introduce yourself in Korean. Now, you are in a right place. I have a few simple notes about Korean phrases.

I'm Ruby. Currently, you are reading my article in Memrise Student's blog. Let me assist you to get some lessons in Korean. It's very easy and simple to do a self-introduction in Korean. Trust me!



Introduce yourself in Korean with ~이에요 and ~예요

Today's grammar is a lesson about how to use ~이에요 and ~예요. We can call these as suffixes or articles. And based on my literature about the Korean language, we attach one of them at the end of a noun.

We can use these articles (~이에요 and ~예요) to make a predictive and an interrogative sentence for an informal context. But still, it's a polite expression.

Self-introduction in Korean
Let's say that I'm trying to say Hello in Korean, then introduce myself. In the picture above, I want to say that my name is Emma, and I'm from America.

We can use ~이에요 when the previous letter of the last syllable is a consonant. And, ~예요 is used when the previous letter of the last syllable is a vowel.

Can you get it? If I were you, I would like to ask for more examples. Okay, let's try again. Let's say that right now, I'm not Emma anymore. I change my identity. So, it would be, Jasmine is my name. And, I'm Armenian.

Jasmine = 야스민
Armenia = 아르메니아
Armenian = 아르메니아 사람

What should we say?
