korean study challenge, week 2

Week 1 of my Korean Study Challenge is complete!  I spent less time studying than I had intended (I did about 3.5 hours instead of the 5+ which I had aimed for), but it was a great week of learning. I made my way through Unit 5, picking up a lot of new words in the process, and ended up scoring a 94% on the end-of-unit test. Not too bad.

A few notes:

1. 잡수시다 vs. 드시다

These two words are synonyms, but there is a specific case for using  잡수시다 over 드시다.

Use 잡수시다 when you’re saying “진지를 잡수시다” — 진지 is the honorific for a meal, and it can only be used with잡수시다.

In other cases, you can use 드시다.

2. 자녀 vs 자식

Again, both words are synonyms, but each has a nuanced meaning.

Use 자녀 when you’re talking about your children, sons and daughters. 자=son (like 효자) and 녀=daughter (효녀). Use 자식 to talk about the children in your family. Like, to say how many children you have.

My husband told me that 자녀 is the more common usage.

Now, let’s move on to this week’s study material.
