    Hi

    I would like to know how to say 'there is/there are' in Korean (I don't know the Korean alphabet I'm afraid).

    Thanks

    Hi

    It's probably 있다. (Koean don't care the difference of singulars and plurals as much as English.) But I heard in English there is a difference between 'there is something' and 'there something is'. Though I have not got the difference well still, I guess Koreans seem to use 있다 for the both cases, adding different suffixes repectively.


    거기에 (당신이) 있었요. =There you are.

    사과가 책상 위에 있다.=There is a apple on the table.
