Level 1 Lesson 2 / Yes, No, What? / 네, 아니요, 네?

After listening to this lesson, when you are asked a YES/NO question, you will be able to answer that question with either YES or NO in Korean.

네. [ne] = Yes.
아니요. [aniyo] = No.

But in Korean, when people say “네”, it is not the same as saying “Yes.” in English. The same goes for “아니요” too. This is because the Korean “네” expresses your “agreement” to what the other person said. And “아니요” expresses your “disagreement” or “denial” to what the other person said.

    American Sign Language (ASL) has a sign that is kinda used like Koreans use 네. It is a great way to make sure that the person is understanding you and paying attention. Also, it is great for gaging how they feel about what is being said. Thanks for these amazing lessons!
