Level 1 Lesson 1 / Hello, Thank you / 안녕하세요, 감사합니다

Welcome to the very first lesson at TalkToMeInKorean.com! If you are an absolute beginner of the Korean language, start with this lesson and practice with us. Don’t worry if you do not know how to read and write in Korean yet. We will guide you through every step of learning Korean. In this lesson, you can learn how to say “Hello.” and “Thank you.” in Korean.

“Hello.” is “안녕하세요. [an-nyeong-ha-se-yo]” and “Thank you.” is “감사합니다. [gam-sa-hap-ni-da]” If you already know how to say these expressions, listen to the lesson to find out how to say them most naturally. If you can make a video of yourself saying these expressions, that would be FANTASTIC!
