Level 2 Lesson 4 / and, with / 하고, (이)랑

In this lesson, we are introducing two new words, 하고 and (이)랑. These are conjunctive words that are used to link two nouns together with the meaning of “and”, and also to express the meaning of “together with”. Listen in to find out how they are used in actual conversations.

And from this lesson on, we are trying something new: we are going to have our friends appear in our lessons introducing their own sample phrases, so that you, our listeners, can have access to a wider range of sample sentences and also have a chance to listen to Korean native speakers other than our teachers. But don’t worry. Our friends’ sample sentences are NOT going to REPLACE the sample sentences by the two hosts 경은 and 현우. We are just adding more sample phrases.

We hope you enjoy this lesson as well, and let us know what you think!

And if you listen to the end of the lesson, write your answer for the little quiz at the end in the comment box! Thank you.

    안녕하세요. 저는 질문이 있어요. I used to work with Koreans as an intern and we used English to talk to each other. I had been learning Korean for a few months then and wanted to ask a question to my colleague, so I added 씨 to her name, because I wanted to be polite. She started laughing and told me that it was impolite for me to call her 씨, the right way would have been 선생님 or 샘. It got me a bit confused because I had thought that 씨 is something generally polite and I am always safe using it, even if the other person is oldern than me with 10-20 years and higher in hierarchy.
    Could you please explain the rules of using 씨 for me? 고맙습니다!
