I really love popcorn. I can say I made today lesson only for popcorn. I really had to teach how to say popcorn in Korean. It’s popcon lol. Actually you don’t need to learn that lol but well, I love popcorn. Anyway! Maybe you will figure out some words you can just speak in English when you don’t remember them in Korean.

Some stuffs have several names in Korean. Especially it’s from a foreign language. 곡물 means cereal or grain.

시리얼바를 우유에 담그면 그냥 시리얼이 되나?
would it be like normal cereal if I put this cereal bar in milk?

Korean language has many words from foreign languages. Juice, Coffee, Cerealbar, now this. Try to speak English for words you don’t remember. it might help a lot.

영화관에서 팝콘을 먹지 않는 것은 신성모독이다.

자판기
[ja pan gi]

Normally you can find it in subway stations but it’s not easy to find a vending machine for snacks here because Koreans have convenient stores everywhere even on the platform in stations. Literally everywhere. if you can’t find a convenient store in 5 mins? then we say ‘what kind of town doesn’t have one single convenient store?’

자판기는 맛있는게 없어요.
That vending machine has no good stuffs.

Well… Mouth is mouth lol. I want to explain more than that for this word but I can’t.

눈은 두갠데… 은 하나야…
I have two eyes… but one mouth

치과 의사
[chi gwa ui sa]

Do you like sweets? then maybe you should know the word ‘dentist’ lol. Korean doesn’t go to one doctor, they just go to any hospital. so Korean doesn’t say ‘go to a doctor’ or ‘go to see a doctor’, they say ‘go to a hospital’ (go to a 치과)
치 : dental / 과 : department / 의사 : doctor

치과 무서워요
Dentist is scary
