    THANKYOU! 항상 만이 배운다고 고마워요^.^

    • Kerri 🙂 Now the weather is much warmer than when we took this video, but still… brrr….. a bit chilly. (이 비디오 찍었을 때보다는 날씨가 훨씬 따뜻해졌는데, 그래도 조금 쌀쌀해요.)

      ‘항상 만이 배운다고 고마워요’ –> “항상 많이 배워요. 고마워요.”

    • ㅋㅋㅋ 고마워요 현우!!

  • Julian

    Hey Hyunwoo! Good job to all you guys at TTMIK, I love these videos! They make it so easy to make the connection from language to the real world and memorize words fast. And the random-ness makes it even more like real-world language use :] I’m starting to understand when you guys just talk about normal every-day things, it’s great! 감사함니다!

  • jolyn

  • hans

    cool website and great job! very helpful for hwangchobo like me!! but please speak slowly, i can’t catch up haha! kamsamida!! fighting!!

  • The Gorn

    I really enjoy watching these episodes! I have a question:

    What’s the difference between 보면 and 보시면?

    • 보면 is less formal. 보시면 is honorific. It’s like comparing 봐요 “Look” to 보세요 “Please look”

      Although, I was also wondering why 현우씨 used both interchangeably… I’m also a bit confused as to when to use honorifics appropriately.

  • Hi, I am Ashish !!!!! I am an Indian ! I am working in Anyang city as a design Engineer ! I am learning Korean at Yonsei University (Evening Class), but I find TTMK more helpful ! All u guys rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Keep the good work !
