Level 2 Lesson 9 / Counters / 개, 명

We are always surrounded by objects, people, animals and many other stuff, and more often than not, we get to COUNT them. Korean has a different kind of counting system from that of English, so let’s learn how to count things (and people) in Korean. In Korean there are hundreds of counters or counting units, but the two words that are most frequently used are 개 and 명. Let us find out how to use them in context and also learn a few other counters. Thank you for studying with us and please feel free to leave us comments and questions!!
