    "the+noun" usage

    Hi everyone. I'm one of many people in this world that grew up with the native language without articles. The concept of articles is very awkward and foreign, so please bear with me on this one.

    ask any questions

    Hello everyone,

    I hear people say,

    "Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have" and we all know what that means, but...

    is ANY + question(S) a correct combination? I feel that...
  4. Re: "You" to a younger friend

    I spent most of my life in Korea and I still find pronouns hard... Very difficult to know what and how to call or refer to someone, especially if you don't know the age or how serious of a person it...

    The second part suggestion sounds very good, try adding "부탁 해, or 꼭 부탁 해요" -means 'please do so', but also 'I rely on you'.

    For "tell you something", I would not say 이야기 or 얘기 because those...
  10. Re: Nice to meet you- but on the phone?

    say if somebody calls you for the first time (intentionally, by referral) how would you greet him or her? Just say hi? thanks for calling?
  11. Nice to meet you. On the phone?

    I'm a newbie here at the forum. It's nice to find such an encompassing forum on language use.

    Anyway, I've noticed recently that people say "nice to meet you" on email no problem, but is it...
