Saying "Yes" and "No" in Korean
The next things you're going to need to learn to say are "Yes" and "No". While we all know you can survive (kind of) with frantic nodding or head shaking, that's not really going to help us in making a good impression, is it? So let's go! Yes? Good. Yes 네 [ ne ] No 아니요 [ aniyo ] That's pretty easy. However, it's not quite that simple in Korean. In Korean, 네 expresses agreement with what the speaker has said and 아니요 expresses disagreement. I hear you saying "But...that makes sense!" so let's look at an example; I don't like brussel sprouts. If a Korean friend says to me, “You don’t like brussel sprouts?” then I should reply with “네" because I am saying I agree with that statement "Yes, I don't like brussel sprouts". (rather than "No, I don't like brussel sprouts"). This can be a little difficult for English speakers to wrap their head around but persevere and you'll have no problem! If you have any questions about this card or about learning Korean in general, feel free to drop me a note in the comments section, I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.
