Test Your Korean – Level 1 Dialogue in 100% Korean

When / 언제

This one is a bit shorter than the last one, and we are introducing how to say ‘when’ in Korean. You can also listen to many examples where the word "when" is used to form questions. Listen in and be sure to try answering the question “When do you get up in the morning?” in Korean in the comment box.

In this lesson, we are going to look at how to say WHEN in Korean, and also practice answering 

the questions, “When did you do it?” “When did you arrive?” “When did you come?” “When do 

you get up?” and etc. (Since we haven’t covered the future tense yet, let’s just look at the past tense and the present tense.)


언제 [eon-je] = when 


Unlike 어디 [eo-di], to which you have to add location marking particles to specify, 언제 [eonje] can always be used on its own.


Now let us try using the word 언제 in context.


Let’s say:


1) “When did you do (it)?”

when = 언제 [eon-je]

you did (it) = 하다 + 였어요 = 했어요 [hae-sseo-yo]

did you do (it)? = 했어요? [hae-sseo-yo?]

When did you do it? = 언제 했어요? [eon-je hae-sseo-yo?]


2) “When did you arrive?”

to arrive = 도착하다 [do-cha-ka-da] 

you arrived = 도착했어요 [do-cha-kae-sseo-yo]

did you arrive? = 도착했어요? [do-cha-kae-sseo-yo?]

When did you arrive? = 언제 도착했어요? [eon-je do-cha-kae-sseo-yo?]


3) “When did you come?” 

to come = 오다 [o-da]

you came = 왔어요 [wa-sseo-yo]

did you come? = 왔어요? [wa-sseo-yo?]

When did you come? = 언제 왔어요? [eon-je wa-sseo-yo?]


4) “When do you get up?”

to get up = 일어나다 [i-reo-na-da]

you get up = 일어나요 [i-reo-na-yo]

do you get up? = 일어나요? [i-reo-na-yo?]

When do you get up? = 언제 일어나요? [eon-je i-reo-na-yo?]


5) “When/what time do you get up in the morning?”

morning = 아침 [a-chim]

in the morning = 아침에 [a-chim-e]

In the morning, when do you get up? = 아침에 언제 일어나요? [a-chim-e eon-je i-reo-na-yo?]

at what time = 몇 시에 [myeot si-e] 

What time do you get up in ther morning? = 아침에 몇 시에 일어나요? [a-chi-me myeot si-e i-reo-na-yo?]


Some more useful nouns to know


오늘 [o-neul] = today

어제 [eo-je] = yesterday

내일 [nae-il] = tomorrow

지금 [ ji-geum] = now

아까 [a-kka] = earlier (today), a while ago (today)

나중에 [na-jung-e] = later
