Level 1 Lesson 20 / Native Korean numbers / 하나, 둘, 셋, 넷 …

We are back with another number lesson! In lesson 15, we introduced the sino-Korean system and today we are introducing the native Korean number system. Having two separate ways of counting different things might look too complicated, and we will be surprised if you can memorize all the numbers at once and never forget them, but if you keep practicing the numbers in context, you will find it much easier in time. So today, we are going to first introduce the native Korean numbers, and ONLY going to cover how to say your age in Korean. If you can say how old you are in Korean after listening to this lesson, this lesson will have achieved its goal. Thank you! 감사합니다.
