Skip to 0 minutes and 1 secondProf.

Skip to 0 minutes and 1 secondAhn : Hello, I am Jung Ho Ahn from Institute of International Education at Hanyang University. I have two students here with me to learn Korean.

Skip to 0 minutes and 12 secondsNick : Hi? I’m Nick from America.

Skip to 0 minutes and 14 secondsBella : Hi? I am Bella from England. Prof.

Skip to 0 minutes and 17 secondsAhn: Last time, we learned about various types of Korean dish and their names. Please tell me the names of the Korean food that we learned last time.

Skip to 0 minutes and 27 secondsBella : We learned bibimbbap and tteokpokki.

Skip to 0 minutes and 30 secondsNick : We also learned samgyeopsal, bulgogi and chicken. Prof.

Skip to 0 minutes and 34 secondsAhn : Yes, that’s right. Since we learned last time the names of Korean dish, let us learn this time how to order them at Korean restaurants. Let’s first take a look at a scene where people are ordering food at a restaurant.

Skip to 0 minutes and 52 secondsKim : What can I get for you?

Skip to 0 minutes and 54 secondsMichele : I’d like to have bibimbbap

Skip to 0 minutes and 55 secondsKim: Alright. Please wait a moment. Prof.

Skip to 1 minute and 1 secondAhn : When you go to a restaurant, the server will ask you, “What can I get for you?” Then, you can answer “I’d like to have bibimbbap”. You can simply put the name of the food that you would like to eat before “I want OOO”. For example, you can say, “I want ramen”, “I want coke”, “I want tteokpokki”. Let’s continue watching.

Skip to 1 minute and 28 secondsMichele : Excuse me, I’d like a glass of water.

Skip to 1 minute and 32 secondsKim : Okay, please wait a moment. Prof.

Skip to 1 minute and 36 secondsAhn : As you are eating, you might want to ask for a glass of water or for a Kimchi. Then, you can get the server’s attention by saying, “Excuse me!”. “Excuse me!” is a sentence that is used to call for a server when you are at a Korean restaurant or a market. And you can say “please, give me water” or “please, give me kimchi” to get some more Kimchi. Now, let’s all repeat together. “I’d like to have bibimbbap.”
