    I’m not sure if …
    I’m not sure if this was asked or not but is there a phrase that the customer says when leaving the restaurant? I went to a Korean restaurant I notice that when the native Korean customers where heading to the door to leave they will say something to the owner. I was just wondering if there is such a thing as polite phrases to say when leaving a mom/pop restaurant?

    There are many teachers who call themselves a ”teacher” in the world. But because they are known as teachers doesn’t mean they can teach. And I must say. You guys are the TRUE teachers that can teach. :) KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!!

  7. zulbeckham23 says:

    좀 is used to make …
    좀 is used to make the request sounds more polite. 메뉴 주세요 is polite but 메뉴 좀 주세요 is more polite. In English, the best example that I could think of is comparing “please give me menu” with “could you please give me the menu”. Hope that helps!

  8. Bernardo Puppin says:

    About the menu …
    About the menu example. Why is the 좀 (a little) needed? How does ”a little” relates to the menu if it’s a single object and can’t be quantified as ”a little” neither ”a lot”?

    I went to a Korean …
    I went to a Korean restaurant 3 days ago. The waitresses were so cute and friendly! I did my best to talk Korean but I was far from perfect :-( Still so much to learn.
    I forgot to say 좀 when I asked something :-(
    In the end the waitresses gave me a free drink on the house.
    I honestly don’t know why, well it wasn’t for my pretty face that’s for sure.
    Could it be because I tried talking Korean with them? Wish I could go there more often, it was the best night of my life!

    Hii~ LOVE talk to …
    Hii~ LOVE talk to me in korean!! You’re the best!
    Just wondering, I’m going to Korea in December (SO EXCITED OMG) and we plan to just eat anything and everything; Should I use some of these phrases or is it probably best to play the foreigner card? I’m kind of worried, if I say some of these phrases will they think I can actually speak Korean and start speaking rapid fire korean towards me? lol :)

    She is the most adorable person EVER.
    Thank you for the phrase for vegetarians. Does that usually also mean no fish or fish sauce/oyster sauce etc? Or is fish not considered meat as is so in some other countries?

  17. TheLittlemissghostly says:
