휴~~~ 난 질문을 있어요.
Is the below lesson okay for a way to teach basic introductions? I'm losing confidence with this and becoming confused; please help! >.< Should I teach using 이에요 or 입니다? And, anything I should add?
[By the way, I wish I wasn't the teacher in my Korean club, ha. But, I know the most out of all the members right now, so it's my responsibility...]
Hello. = 안녕하세요.
I am _______. = 저는 _______ 이에요 / 예요.
저는 세라 예요. > I'm Sarah.
저는 톰 이에요. > I'm Tom.
*Do you notice a difference there? We'll go more over that, but once you learn it, it's easy.*
I'm from _______. = (저는) _______에서 왔어요.
(저는) 미국에서 왔어요. > I'm from America.
(저는) 괌에서 왔어요. > I'm from Guam.
*After saying 저는 (I) in the context of a self-introduction, you can drop it. I'll write it in parentheses, but it really isn't needed.*
I'm a _______. = (저는) _______이에요 / 예요.
(저는) 대학생이에요. > I'm a college student.
(저는) 선생님이에요. > I'm a teacher.
*Let me know if there are other words you want to learn, like maybe your job, or something.*
I'm __ years old. = (저는) __ 살이에요. [Use with native Korean numbers.]
(저는) 열 아홉 살이에요. > I'm nineteen years old.
(저는) 스무 살이에요. > I'm twenty years old. Oh, and should I add "Nice to meet you." = 만나서 반가워요. ?
