On this episode, we talked about the expression, “excuse me” which can be shil-lye-ham-ni-da / 실례합니다, jwue-song-ha-ji-man / 죄송하지만, and jeo-gi-yo / 저기요 in Korean.
*The literal meaning of jeo-gi-yo / 저기요 is “Over there.”
Listen and find out when you could use these expressions.
As an example, you want to pass through the crowd of people, you can say,
[Excuse me, coming through.]
Another example is if I did not hear my boss’ instructions to me well. I would like him to repeat them, I can say,
죄송하지만 다시 한 번 말씀해 주세요.
(jwue-song-ha-ji-man da-shi han-beon mal-sseum-hae ju-se-yo?)
[Beg your pardon, but would you say that again?]
