Practice 1

follow the Expression and let's practice (What would you like to eat? Let's eat Bulgogi.)
Ahn : Hello, I am Jung Ho Ahn from Institute of Internation Education at Hanyang University. I have 2 students here with me to learn Korean.
Bella : Hello, My name is Bella, and I am from England.
Nick : Hi? I’m Nick from America. Prof.
Ahn : Today, we will go have a meal together. “Guys, what would you like to eat?”
Bella : Let’s eat bulgogi. Prof.
Ahn : Very well. This is bulgogi. Then let’s talk about what you would like to eat. Nick, what do you want to eat?
Nick : Let’s have bibimbap. Prof.
Ahn : very well. But Nick, it’s bibimbbap, not bibimbap. repeat after me. bibimbbap.
Nick : bibimbbap. Prof.
Ahn : Good. This time, Bella will tell me what she wants to have. Bella, what would you like to eat?
Bella : Professor, let’s have chicken. Prof.
Ahn : Good. “what do you want to have?” is a sentence you use to ask others on what they want to eat. and “let’s eat chicken” is the answer to that question. You simply have to state the name of the food you want to eat in front of “Let’s eat OOO.” Let’s practice one more time, but this time, you two will ask each other.
Nick : Bella, what do you want to eat?
Bella : Let’s eat samgyeopsal. Prof.
Ahn : You now heard your friend’s suggestion. Nick, what you do think about samgyeopsal?
Nick : sounds good. Let’s go together. Prof.
Ahn : Let’s all repeat again, “what do you want to eat?”
