In the last post, 가 and 나 discussed classroom furniture. Here is another dialog from the same textbook on a similar theme: verifying that yes, you have successfully identified an everyday object.

If you understand the grammar in the last post, you should be able to read this dialog. Try doing so before looking at the translation.

가: 이것은 시계입니까?
나: 네, 시계입니다.
가: 이것은 구두입니까?
나: 아니요, 구두 아닙니다. 그것은 운동화입니다.

이것 this
그것 that
시계 clock, watch
구두 dress shoes
운동화 sneakers
아니다 is not
네 yes
아니요 no (polite)

Highlight for translation:

[가: Is this a clock?
나: Yes, it is a clock.
가: Are these dress shoes?
나: No, they are not dress shoes. Those are sneakers.

Edit: You know, one day I'll actually get the word for "window" right. The first time I somehow typed 칠문, which came from God knows where.

Then a helpful person pointed out that I had it wrong, and I changed it to ... 장문. No. It should be right now, though. Maybe.

My first Korean dialog. 가, having drunk way too much the previous night before and having difficulty seeing straight, turns to 나 for help identifying items of furniture.

가: 이것은 무엇입니까?
나: 책상입나다.
가: 저것은 무엇입니까?
나: 저것은 의자입니다.

Highlight for translation:

[가: What is this?
나: It's a desk.
가: What is that?
나: That's a chair.


이것 this
저것 that
무엇 what
은/는 topic particle
책상 desk
의자 chair
이다 to be

Down the rabbit hole )

I love the ridiculousness of textbook dialog! From 한국어 1 by 서울대학교 언어교육원.
