    I am a multi-language human being, haha. Nah, I am from Busan, Korea. Currently living in Seoul.

    I’m not a big fan of phrasebooks, especially those made by those publishers that have a whole series of them in various languages because it is too formal for me. Sure, they are convenient, well known, but also highly irrelevant and basically they are just the translations of the most common phrases from the perspective of English (for some of them at least).

    Some books contain awkward phrases too. And the question is: how relevant are they? Are these ‘common phrases’ really used in everyday life?
    These questions have been bugging me for a long time, so I’ve decided to come up with a list of phrases most commonly used (in real life) in the most common situations – based on personal experience in Korea ^^
    The following list contains phrases of what the Koreans will say. I find that it’s harder for others to catch what they are saying compared to getting our meaning across since the following are such set phrases that we usually say it really fast.
    I won’t be putting up romanisations, but I hope you will be finding it useful all the same! ^^ I’ll be compiling another list of how you should reply next time to prevent information overload.
    At the restaurant
    • 몇분이세요? (how many people?) {myeochbun-iseyo}
    • 잠시만 기다리세요 (please wait for a moment) {jamsiman gidaliseyo}
    • 이쪽으로 안내 드리겠습니다 (please go this way – used when directing you to the seat) {ijjog-eulo annae deuligessseubnida}
    • 예약했어요? (have you made a reservation?) {yeyaghaess-eoyo?}
    • 지금 자리 없는데요, XX분을 기다려야 하는데 괜찮으세요? (there are no seats right now, is it okay to wait for xx mins?) {jigeum jali eobsneundeyo, XXbun-eul gidalyeoya haneunde gwaenchanh-euseyo?}
    • 성함이 어떻게 되세요? (may I have your name?) {seongham-i eotteohge doeseyo?}
    • 자리가 나오시면 연락드리겠습니다 (we will contact you again when there are seats) {jaliga naosimyeon yeonlagdeuligessseubnida}
    • 주문 도와 드리겠습니다. (may I take your order?) {jumun dowa deuligessseubnida}
    • xxxx, 주문 맞으시죠? (xxx, is the order correct?) {xxxx, jumun maj-eusijyo?}
    At the casual food place
    • 뭐 드릴까요? (can i take your order?)
    When paying
    • 결제 도와 드리겠습니다 (lit: I will assist you in payment – used when you are paying for something)
    • 포인트 카드 있으세요? (do you have any point card?)
    • 연수증 필요하세요? (do you need a receipt?)
    • 현금 연수증 필요하세요? (do you need a cash receipt?)
    • 서명 부탁드리겠습니다 (please sign)
    • 봉투에 담아 드릴까요? / 봉투 필요하세요? (should I put these in a bag for you? / do you need a bag?)
    NOTE:
    The translations are not direct translations of the phrases. If you look at them carefully, you will find that some of them are statements functioning as questions when translated to English. We tend to expect a direct translation of our native language and that is why we often do not understand how the natives speak.
    My friend first week here in Korea, she get really nervous when the Koreans start to rattle off these set phrases at top speed. Her Korean is not bad, but she was just unaccustomed to these phrases. Anyone has similar experiences?
    All those phrases are not really found in the typical phrasebooks right? ^^ But trust me, they are used everywhere in Korea!
    Let me know what you think about the list. And suggestions / feedback is always welcomed!
    --------------------

    Do leave a comment or the romanized phrases from above. I might correct you though.

    How about some pick-up lines phases? So when I go to Korea, I can use them. :D

    For example:
    1) Babe, your beauty makes the morning sun look like the dull glimmer of the moon.
    2) My love for you is like diarrhea, I just can't hold it in.
    etc etc etc

    Overall, I find it very useful and great work. :lol:
