Level 3 Lesson 30 / Word builder 2 / 실(室)

Welcome to another lesson in the Word Builder series. The Word Builder lessons will be a part of the regular lessons. In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words based on Chinese characters, but many of them are.

Hope you enjoy this lesson, and we are looking at the word “실” [sil] in this lesson.


You can download both the PDF lesson notes and the MP3 audio track for this lesson below, and if you want to learn with our various textbooks and workbooks, you can get them on our online bookstore at MyKoreanStore.com. If you have any questions about this lesson, please leave us comments below!

Level 3 Grammar Textbook and Workbook

We’ve made the Level 3 lessons even better and published them as a grammar textbook! The grammar textbook itself is filled with very effective comprehension questions, but you can practice even further with our workbook for Level 3. Both are available now on our online bookstore.

    I just had one question about this lesson, do all native Korean speakers grow up learning the 한자? So would all Korean people be able to tell you which Chinese character 실 came from etc?

    Thanks so much!!

      we learn 한자 in school but young generations don’t know it much. usually, we can guess it from the contexts.
