Test Your Korean – Level 1 Dialogue in 100% Korean

From A To B, From C Until D / -에서/부터 -까지

안녕하세요! We are back with another lesson for Level 1. And in fact, this is the last lesson for Level 1. Lesson number 25 will introduce how to say “from A to B” and “from C until D (in terms of time)” using the words 부터, 에서 and 까지. Make sure to praqctice by making your own sample phrases.

In this lesson, we are going to introduce how to say “from A to B” when talking about locations and “from A until B” when talking about time. Basically, if you look at the big picture, -에서 [-e-seo] and -부터 [-bu-teo] mean “from” and -까지 [-kka-ji] means “to” or “until”.

First, let’s look at how to say “from A” in Korean. Basically, -에서 [-e-seo] and -부터 [-bu-teo] both mean “from” and they are usually interchangeable, but in cases where they are NOT interchangeable, -에서 is associated more often with locations and 부터 is associated more often with time. 

Like all the other particles, -부터, -에서, and -까지 are used AFTER a noun or a pronoun, not BEFORE one. 


From A” in Korean is “A에서” or “A부터”


Examples

1. From Seoul 

= 서울에서 [seo-ul-e-seo] (from Seoul to another place)

= 서울부터 [seo-ul-bu-teo] (“starting from Seoul”)


2. From now

= 지금부터 [ji-geum-bu-teo] 

= 지금에서 (x)


3. From (or Since) yesterday

= 어제부터 [eo-je-bu-teo] 

= 어제에서 (x)


Now, “to B” or “until B” in Korean is “B까지 [-kka-ji].”


Examples

1. (From somewhere else) to Seoul

= 서울까지 [seo-ul-kka-ji]


2. Until now

= 지금까지 [ ji-geum-kka-ji]


3. Until tomorrow 

= 내일까지 [nae-il-kka-ji]


4. Until when

= 언제까지 [eon-je-kka-ji]


More examples

1. From here to there

= 여기에서 저기까지 

= 여기부터 저기까지


2. From head to toe

= 머리부터 발끝까지

= 머리에서 발끝까지


3. From Seoul to Busan

= 서울에서 부산까지

= 서울부터 부산까지


4. From morning until evening

= 아침부터 저녁까지

= 아침에서 저녁까지 (x)
