Level 5 Lesson 22 / Word builder 8 / 식 (食)


안녕하세요. ^^ Welcome to another lesson in the Word Builder series. 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 “식” [sik].

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 5 Lesson 22 / Word builder 8 / 식 (食)
Tagged on:             
  • Mr. Kim

    The “FOOD” that I “ATE” tasted like 식(食). <– My mNemonic to remember 식.

  • It seems ” 식탁 ” in Chinese is ” 食桌 "not "食卓 “. ^^

    • They are the same (at least in the Korean Hanja system) ^_^ 똑같아요~ Korean Hanja dictionaries say that 桌 is an older character for 卓. ^^

    • 아~ 그렇군요. ^^ 현우 씨가 알려줘서 감사해요. ^_^

  • 식객이라고 만화책을 읽어 봤어요. 아직 멋 해요. ㅋㅋㅋ

    (also off topic, have you covered “느라고” yet?)


  • Samier

    Yay! Another Word Builder!

    I’ll be sure to study some of the words ^^


  • julie

    quite catchy!!!! i remember them all after hearing it twice!!! really close to chinese:P!! good work!!

  • It’s amazing how kanji knowledge greatly speeds up vocabulary acquisition when studying Korean :D!

  • And then there’s my personal favorite word, because it’s so funny… 식신

    식 = food
    신 = god

    Yes… An eating God! LMAO!!!!!

    그러면 TTMIK의 선생님중에서 식신 같아요?

  • 야신

    저는 저녁 다음에 후식을 먹는 것을 좋아해요. (I like to eat dessert after dinner).

    제 어머니가 시장에서 가고 식품을 사라고 말했어요. (My mother told me to go to the market and buy groceries).

    저는 제 사촌한테 내일 음식점에 간다고 말할 거예요. (I will tell my cousin that I’m going to a restaurant tomorrow).

  • 애쉴리

    식사 후에 난 바로 후식을 안 먹는다. 시간을 아끼지 않고 후식을 먹는다

  • 감사해용~

  • 현미

    보통 과식하고 분식을 너무 먹어서 다이트를 힘들어요… (Because I usually over eat and eat too many flour-based foods, it’s hard to diet..)

  • 안톤

    학교식당의 음식이 너무 지루했는데 어제 외식했어요. The food inside canteen was boring that I ate out yesterday.
    코스코에서 시식 많이 있어요. 전 자주 먹어요. There are many sample food in Costco, I often eat there.
    본식 많이 별써 먹으니까 오늘은 고기만 먹었어요. Because i had too much flour-based food already as for today, I only eat meat.
    밥을 먹다가 간식랑 우유 랑 먹었어요. I ate snack and drank milk right after I finished my meal.

  • Yuki

    나는 돈이 많지 않아서 요즘엔 많은 식품을 살 수 없어요 하지만 좀 간식 있어서 괜찮아 생각해요
    분식을 못 먹는 사람도 있다고 들었어요
    매날 오빠에게 과식 하지 마세요 건강하지 않요 그런데 오빠가 내 말을 듣지 않아요
    음식점은 식당보다 더 비싸요
    저는 언젠가 한국 식당에 가고 싶어요

  • Dae

    1. 시장에 가끔 시식을 있어서 가기 좋아하다고 말해요. – She said she likes to go to the market because sometimes there’s food samples.
    2. 그녀는 요리하기 싫어해서 항상 외식해요. – She doesn’t like to cook, so she always eat out.
