Level 2 Lesson 3 / and, and then, therefore, so / 그리고, 그래서

Hello everyone, we are back with another lesson! Like many languages in the world, there are many conjuctions in the Korean language. In this lesson we are introducing two of them: 그리고 and 그래서. 그리고 [geu-ri-go] has the meaning of “and” and “and then”, depending on the context. 그래서 [geu-rae-seo] has the meaning of “therefore” and “so”. If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to leave us a comment! 감사합니다.

    피자를 좋아해요. 그리고 파스타를 많이 좋아해요. I like pizza. And I like pasta a lot.
    I hope these are all correct 🙂

  • Gal Shteinberg

    Today I wrote my first sentence in Korean, is it correct?
    친구를 만날거예요, 그래서 밥을을 안 먹었어요- I’m going to meet a friend, so I did not eat food.

    • Ivis Benavides

      Been a while since I’ve studied but I believe you cannot connect subject and object marking particles so it would just be 밥을. Everything else looks right.

    • Nedjma Zoe

  • Ivis Benavides

    이 site를 많이 도와줘요 –> I help this site a lot
    Is that what you meant to say?

    • Michelle Masaganda

      Hmm I think I put the wrong particle TT again :'( I’m still confused with that for 3 years </3 or maybe the grammar lol anyways what I meant was "and this site helps me alot"

    • Ivis Benavides

      Particles can be very confusing but don’t worry you will get it eventually! You should of used either 는 or 가 to say “This site helps me a lot”.

    • Michelle Masaganda

      I knew it, I should have used the 는 :3 anyways thanks 🙂

  • Diana Mortagua

    안녕하세요! I tried to write some sentences so I would like someone to tell me if I have any mistakes (I must have) but first I have a question: When used to connect sentences 그리고 and 그래서 always come alfter the “.”?

    These are the sentences:
    1- 저가 돈을 없어요. 고래고 김치를 안 먹어요.
    2-저가 돈을 없어요. 그래서 김치를 안 먹었어요.
    3- 친고 없어요. 그리고 돈을도 없어요. 그래서 행복 안 해요.
    4- 내일 김치를 할 거에요.
    5- 어떻게 사과를 찿았어요?
    6- 저가 갈 거에요 여기 에서 서올 까지
    7- 왜 진 안 왔어요? 그리고 언제 올 거에요?
    8- 어제 어디 만났어요?
    9- 누가 어제 만났어요?
    10 – 김치를 그리고 피자 먹고 싶어요. 그래서 콜라도 마시고 싶어요, 주세요!
    11- 누가 만날 거에요.
    12- 저가요! 콜라를 멀마에요? 하나 주세요.

    PLEASE help me! 감사합니다!

    • Kenneth

      Diana, I don’t know about the period. I noticed it in the PDF and had the same question. I think your #12 should read: 저기요! 콜라를 얼마에요? 한병 주세요.
      I think you misspelled “excuse me” and “how much”. 병 is the counter for bottles, they have not covered that yet.
      I’m sure these were just typos from going too fast.

    • Diana Mortagua

      Yeah, you’re right. On my notebook I wrote everything as it should be (except the bottles part).

      Thank you so much for taking time reading it!

  • Fernando

    저는 어젯밤 뒤따렀어요. 그래서 집에 달렸어요. → I was chased last night. So I ran [to] home.

    I wonder if I should add the past tense of 있다 somewhere in the sentence to say “was being”…
