Hello everyone,

This week is the first lesson of our ‘Intermediate-Korean course. During this week, we will learn how to talk about Korean dishes.

  • 떡볶이 먹어 본 적 있어요? (Have you ever had Tteok-bokki?)
  • 아직 먹어 본 적이 없어요. (I’ve never had it before.)

Also, we’re going to learn how to explain the different names and flavors of Korean dishes.

  • 이런 커피 본 적 있어요? (Have you ever seen this kind of coffee?)
  • 아니요, 처음 봤어요. (No, it’s my first time seeing it.)
  • 달고나커피인데 달콤해서 맛있어요. (It’s a Dalgona coffee, and it’s delicious because it’s sweet.)

If you feel that the content is too difficult to understand immediately, don’t worry! We are going to learn these expressions step by step.
