Our second meeting, we cooked Korean food! We started with grocery store shopping, then we went to my home and began to cook! We made kimbap(Korean sushi) and kimchi. It was really fun and interesting! Jisoo taught me how to cook rice properly and I also learned the real way of making kimchi. Even though we didn’t have all the ingredients, it turned out really nice.
We also had time to study. I learned Korean numbers.
From one to ten: il, e, sam, sa, u, yoog, chil, pal, gu, sib!
Hundred, thousand, ten thousand: bag, chun, man.
And some sentences:
Sa lang he! -I love you.
Po ko sipu/siputsu! I miss/missed you.
Jisoo had birthdays earlier so we celebrated that as well. I learned how to wish happy birthday in Korean.
Saeng il chuck ha hae yo!
Our first meeting started with second hand shop tour in Kyttälän Kirppis. We didn’t find anything that we could buy, but it was nice to look around. After that we went to Café Runo, to have some coffee and tea. I learned a lot of Korean alphabets, how to write it and also about pronunciation, now I just need to try to keep it in my mind! I also learned some words and sentences. For an example:
An nyeong ha se yo = Hello (polite way)
An nyeong = Hello (to your friend)
An nyeong he gae se yo = Bye (if somebody leaves and you stay)
An nyeong hi ga se yo = Bye (if you leave and somebody stays)
Jal jinetso? = How are you?
Jal jinetso. = I’m good.
Ani = No
Ne = Yes
에미나 = Emmiina
김 지 수 = Kim Ji Soo
My task was to try write Jisoo’s name in Korean alphabets, and I found all the right letters, but adjusted them in wrong order. This picture explains how to adjust letters in right way. Not that simple, right? 😀
I taught some words, sentences and pronunciation of our alphabets to Jisoo. We had lot of fun and three hours went really fast, we stayed at the café till it was closed! On our way home we decided that on the next meeting, we are going to cook some Korean food, kimbap and kimchi! Can’t wait for that!
