Here are more sentences to help you engage in a simple conversation.

Let’s start with important info about yourself.

The register chosen is the polite style. As you may be introducing yourself to someone important / senior I have also included the Formal style in brackets. Don’t use this with younger people or equals in your work place.

irum-i mwø-yeyo? (songhami øttøk’e dweseyo?)

che irum-i _________ ieyo – I am called
(irum-i __________ imnida)

ødi sarayo? (odi sarimnikka?)

______-esø sarayo (_____-esø sarimnida)

ødi-esø wassøyo? –  Where are you from? (~~~ wassimnikka?)

…esø wassøyo – I am from… (esø wassimnida)

migûk saram-ieyo? – Are you American? (~~~saram-imnikka?)

aniyo, yøngûk saram-ieyo – No I’m British (~~~saram-imnida)

ne, migûk saram-ieyo – Yes, I am (~~~saram-imnida)

EXTENSION:

If you are already a clever cloggs (tuk tuk haeyo!) then try reading this ‘Advanced’ piece at the bottom.  What information do you recognise and what could you change to talk about yourself?

    Translation:
    Hello! My name is Gareth. I live in Swansea and I was born in Swansea. Since I am a teacher I work at a school. I teach French and Spanish.

    I have many interests. Nowadays I am learning (to play) the piano. As I started learning Korean 5 years ago, I (can) speak it well now (these days). In truth, I (can) speak many languages. I really love languages! In the future I really want to study Chinese, Korean and Japanese at University.

    Football is also good (I like it too) and I have an interest in swimming. My favourite hobby is reading, it’s fun! My favourite books are books about the Korean language.

    [Hope that helps! :-)]
    Gareth
