Preventing the Virus

Learning with Tiktok (Group: OnlyOneOf Fandom lyOn)

1) Wear a mask

예방하다 to prevent

마스크 face mask

-> this is the kind of mask you use for health purposes while 가면 is more like a halloween or other kind of mask

착용하다 to wear (a formal word used for anything you wear. In casual situations you would say 마스크 하다 / 마스크 쓰다)

2) Wash hands for at least 30 seconds

seconds (use sino numbers. 30초-> 삼십초)

이상 more than

hand

씻다 to wash

Adding 기 to 씻다 is a way of turning verbs into nouns and is like saying “verbing”. For example “self teaching Korean is hard” 독학으로 한국어 배우기 어려워요 (배우다 to learn 배우기 learning)

so “for more than 30 seconds” but “at least 30 seconds” sounds better in English

3) Avoid crowded places

사람 people/person

많다 to be many

a formal word for “place”

(informal/more casual is )

피하다 to avoid/dodge

많은 is a noun modifier 

사람이 많아요 there’s a lot of people

-> 사람이 많은 곳 (a place with a lot of people / a crowded place)

We are just 3 students who wish to share the love and joy of learning Korean through lesson posts and translations! We are doing this for fun, based on our experience and questions we ask native speakers. We are not fluent! Just passionate  ~ Hannah, Shelbi, and Jordan
