How to introduce yourself!:)
once upon a star
once upon a star2 years ago
hi!
I think it might be nice to write a bit about how to introduce oneself in Korean here - I'll try to keep things easy to grasp!:')

To start, it is always good to say or write 안녕하십니까, which means Hello!

안녕하십니까!
an nyong ha shim nee ga!
(Hello!)

Then you can start introducing your name!:)

제 이름 은 (your name!) 입니다.
czae ee lem en (your name!:)) im nee da.


After that, you might like to talk a bit about your interests!^^

제 취미는 (your interest(s)!) 입니다.
czae chee mee nen (your interest(s)) im nee da.

If you have more than one interest, you can use 하고 (har goo) to separate the interests!

E.g. Interest A하고 Interest B하고 Interest C ...


Below are some interests which you might like to put in the blank!:)

그림을 그리는 것 (Drawing)
ker leem erl ker lee nen got

농구하는 것 (Playing Basketball)
noong goo ha nen got

노래를 부르는 것 (Singing)
noo lae lerl poo ler nen got

피아노를 치는 것 (Playing the piano)
pee ah noo lerl chee nen got

기타를 치는 것 (Playing the guitar)
kee ta lerl chee nen got

달리는 것 (Running)
daol lee nen got

영화를 감상하는 것 (Watching/admiring films)
yong hwa lerl garm sarng ha nen got

책을 읽는 것 (Reading)
czaek erl eelk nen got

음악을 감상하는 것 (Listening to music)
em ark erl garm sarng ha nen got


Lastly, you can finish off with 만나서 반가워요, which means It's nice to meet you!:')

만나서 반가워요!
marn na sor barn ga wor yor!


Sorry for taking so long! I hope it wasn't too hard!
Till next time then!:')

안녕하세요. 제 이름은 안나 이에요. 반가워요.
내 쥐미는 노래하고 음악 하고 한국 이에요.
Can you please give more words to learn and how to make sentences? But not the ones with object-subject-verb. Bigger sentences.

@MousyCh, no problem! I’ll see how I can make things easier to understand!(as bigger sentences are sometimes hard:( ) I’m happy to know you’re eager to learn more though!:‘)

@once upon a star, learning vocabulary by myself is hard and I get lazy. And there's the problem with 는데 because I never know if I use it correctly.

안녕하십니까!
제 이름 은 Fiona 입니다. Sorry with the alaphabets, I don't have them on my keyboard.

I don't mean to rude or anything of the sort but I won't be writing here and visit here as often you may have expected or hoped. I'll try to check in here as often I can and learn something new about Korean culture and language.
I happen to be very, very busy with school (in final year). So cheers and hope I am not the killjoy here or anything.

Omg, your name is Fiona?! My name is actually Fiona too! (Sorry, I just saw this post and I got kind of excited. I've only met one other person with the same name before. :))

@Ari-Ink98, That is so cool!

@Ari-Ink98, what a funny coincidence! Same here! ^.^ I even travelled to Ireland a year ago and thought I would meet there more people with the same name, aparently not. The Irish said it's an old fashioned name and in Switzerland (where I live at the moment) many milk cows have that name. XD

@bloomingfantasy34, Really? I always assumed the name was  popular in Ireland, lol. Though I have to say, I really love the idea of cows having the same name in Switzerland!

@Comrade, hi Comrade! Were you hoping to see how America is spelt in Korean? It's spelt this way - 아메리카 - and read as ‘ah - mae - lee - ka’!:) hope it helps!

@Comrade, was that what you're looking for?:o If there are other words you’d like to know let me know!:-)

So do Koreans use R's when writing/speaking or do they usually substitute with L's? I've been learning Japanese for a while and, from what I've seen, it's actually the opposite. They replace L's with R's. I was just curious if it was a shared concept between the two languages. This is kind of an odd question, but I hope it makes sense.

@Ari-Ink98, hi Ari! Although there isn't an 'r' sound in Korean, for the consonant 'ㄹ' in Korean, the pronunciation is a mixture between r and l - I have found a nice video which introduces briefly (and easily!) the consonants and vowels in Korean and how to write them on paper, I hope it helps! :)
