검은의고양이 두 마리

As mentioned before, last week I was on vacation, and the “class” that opened the week was less of a class, and more of a make-shift get together. Which is what one would expect from two teachers and three students. I didn’t really do a write-up last week, so here’s a quick overview of what happened.

Given the circumstances around the class, we learned a smaller lesson, this one concerning counting; specialty counting as I’d call it. Using terms/ideas such as “first/second/third” and terms for size and frequency. (“The pen is twice (두번) as large as the eraser,” or “I can run twice (두베) as far as you.”

It’s pretty basic: for frequency you take the Korean number (not the Sino-Korean number) and add -번 to the end. For size, you take the Korean number, here 돌 (two) and add -배. The only other trick to remember is that for the first four integers (1-4 obviously), you chop off the final consonant before adding the postposition.
