“Let’s” in casual language / 반말

안녕하세요! In our previous lesson, we looked at how to use 반말 (casual language) in Korean. In this lesson, we are going to introduce how to say “Let’s” in 반말 and also some other common expressions that you will need in conversing with people in 반말. Have fun!

Since you now know how and when to use 반말 [ban-mal] (casual language), you are well-equipped to learn how to make imperative “let us” or “let’s” sentences in 반말. Normally, for sentences in present and past tense, you can simply drop the suffix “-요" to change it from 존댓말 [jeon-daet-mal] to 반말. However, when you want to say “let’s do something” in 반말, you need to use a completely different ending. 


Structure

Verb stem + -자 [-ja]


Ex)

하다 [ha-da] = to do

하 + 자 = 하자 [ha-ja] = Let’s do it.


공부하다 [gong-bu-ha-da] = to study

공부하 + 자 = 공부하자 [gong-bu-ha-ja] = Let’s study.


하지 말다 [ha-ji mal-da] = to not do it

하지 말 + 자 = 하지 말자 [ha-ji mal-ja] = Let’s not do it.


먹다 [meok-da] = to eat

먹 + 자 = 먹자 [meok-ja] = Let’s eat.


Sample sentences

1. 내일 보자.

[nae-il bo-ja]

= Let’s meet tomorrow. 

= See you tomorrow.


2. 이거 사자.

[i-geo sa-ja]

= Let’s buy this.


3. 우리 내일은 쉬자.

[u-ri nae-i-reun swi-ja]

= Let’s take a day off tomorrow.


4. 같이 가자.

[ga-chi ga-ja]

= Let’s go together.


5. 조금만 더 기다리자.

[jo-geum-man deo gi-da-ri-ja]

= Let’s wait a little longer.



More Phrases in 반말

2. 안녕히 가세요 [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo] -> 안녕 [an-nyeong] / 잘 가 [jal ga]

3. 안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo] -> 안녕 [an-nyeong] / 잘 있어. [jal i-sseo]
