[KWotD] How To Say Car in Korean

Car in korean

Car in Korean

Hello everyone, how have you been? Due to being short on time, it has certainly been a while since our last a Korean Word of the Day lesson.  Last time, even if it was seemingly ages ago, we learned how to say ‘tree’ in Korean. Today we will continue with the nouns and learn how to say car in Korean. For this we use the word:



In Hangul: 차


You might notice, if your Korean is good enough, that this is the same word as the word for ‘tea’. Don’t let this similarity confuse or scare you. Even though they are both spelled and pronounce the same, it is almost always clear based on the context what the speaker is referring to.

Another word for ‘car’ is ‘ja-dong-cha’ (in Hangul: 자동차) but this resembles the English word ‘automobile’ a bit more than ‘cha’ (차).



Ex. 1

가 멈췄어요.

[cha-ga meom-chu-eott-da]

=The car stopped.


Ex. 2

를 타다.

[cha-reul ta-da].

= to get in a car (in order to ride it) (dictionary form)

As usual, if you haven’t already done so, we recommend that you learn hangul if you are serious about learning Korean.  It is much easier than you probably think and, believe it or not, it will only take you a few days to be able to read the entire alphabet. So what are you waiting for?
