How to Communicate in a Foreign Country By: At the same time, however, the thought of going on an adventure, meeting new people, and learning new skills was too exciting to ignore! Doing an international Co-op gave me the opportunity not only to see the world, but also to gain valuable work-related experience and tackle new challenges.
My Korean language studies have been a bumpy ride of miscommunication and mishaps. My first list is here. However, even the correct translation can be confusing. At least, in Korea I do! This is getting weirder by the minute, so let me explain. Okay, now never utter those words in front of a Korean.
The Sea of Japan is how I had the body of water between Japan and Korea labeled on my world map growing up. Calling them anything else is a reminder of centuries of Chinese dominance and more extensively Japanese imperialism in the region.
Dokdo is also referred to as Takeshima in Japan, which might get you killed if you say it out loud in front of a Korean. East Sea, West Sea, and Dokdo it is! Who the hell wrote this book? Jujeom fits one of the many variations of places of female or male companionship located all over Korea.

As they heard the door, a lady a solid 15 yrs my senior came out rushing to chase me down. She noticed I was not Korean and started considering her options. I noticed what she was wearing and cued in to what was going on.
She made one final motion asking me to come in, but I politely excused myself and vowed to never trust Google Translate again. Even yelling it loud is acceptable. When you need to make a negative sentence in Korean, the entire sentence must agree and be negative. Not doing so will make the meaning unclear.
I will never do it.
I used to run into a lot of trouble explaining to people that I have never seen a certain movie. However, there was a video a few years back above that deserves some explanation, and if you must, a mild chuckle.
From my time teaching primary grammar, it became clear that Koreans have an incredibly hard time pronouncing diphthongs in English. Despite the latter being three syllables instead of one, it sounds closer to the correct pronunciation. While this is one word that Koreans should be careful translating, and not foreigners, Sidney insisted I share the video, and indulge you with this lady accidentally asking you whether or not you have male genitalia.Annyeong haseyo!
