"Head and Shoulder Knees and Toes"♪ and Facial Parts in Korean! (11/13/11)

An-nyung(안녕), An-nyung-ha-se-yo(안녕하세요)!

Sorry for the late update, but here's the lesson we did last time with the KCOA Older Group! :)

Last class, we learned the song "Head and Shoulder Knees and Toes"♪ in Korean.
The song is called 머리 어깨 무릎 발♪ ("Mu-ri Uh-ggae Mu-reub Bal") in Korean and directly translated, it would be "Head Shoulder Knees Foot" in English.

We will perform this next time we meet at our annual Holiday Potluck Celebration so make sure you practice!!! We'll do awesome like last time when we performed 선녀와 나무꾼 (The Fairy and the Woodcutter) play!!

Below is the lyric to the song, so use it to practice with your parents! Don't forget the dance too! :)

Here's the link to the song online! So if you forgot how to sing it in Korean listen and use this video to practice -> 머리 어깨 무릎 발 (Head and Shoulder Knees and Toes) 
(It's a blog in Korean so don't get scared by all the Korean characters - look for the video in the page!)
Notice the tune of the song is same with the "Head and Shoulder Knees and Toes" in English version, so it should be easy! :)

We also learned the facial parts in Korean last class!

To recap:
얼굴 ("Ul-Gool") - Face
눈 ("Noon") - Eyes
코 ("Ko") - Nose
입 ("Ip") - Mouth
귀 ("Gui") - Ears

The following worksheets are from the last class. You can print them out and try them again to practice saying and writing 눈, 코, 입, 귀!! :)

↑ Practice saying and draw 눈, 코, 입, 귀 on the girl's face and connect them with the words! :)

Enjoy practicing Korean and make sure you practice for the 머리 어깨 무릎 발♪ performance!

Our performance is going to be:
1. Saying 안녕 "An-nyung" 안녕하세요 "An-nyung-ha-se-yo" to the audience
2. Performing (Singing/dancing) 머리 어깨 무릎 발♪ "Mu-ri Uh-ggae Mu-reub Bal" 

Practice rehearsing the performance with your parents!!!


Happy Thanksgiving!!! 즐거운 추수감사절 보내세요! :D

The Last lesson before Thanksgiving!

Hello, KCOA lovers!

Today, we started the class by reviewing how to say Hello in Korean!

Hello--> 안녕(An Nyoung)

And there is another way to say hello to older people in a respectful way,
안녕하세요. (An Nyung Ha Sae Yo)

We also made some amazing bookmarks!
We learned how to write our names and favorite things in Korean.

Do you all remember how to say, "I like..." in Korean?
Just in case you forgot,

I like...<==> ...좋아요. (Joh Ah Yo)

Some of your favorite things in Korean,

food: 음식 (Eum Sik)
candy: 사탕 (Sa Tang)
pomegranate: 석류 (Suk Ryu)
apple: 사과 (Sa Gua)
mommy: 엄마 (Um Ma)

After making bookmarks, we learned the song "비행기(airplane-Bee Hang Gi)"

These are the lyrics:)

떴다 떴다 비행기 날아라 날아라  
Rising Rising Airplane Fly away Fly away 

(Ddut da Ddut da Bee-hang-gi, nal ah ra, nal a ra)

높이 높이 날아라 우리 비행기
Higher Higher fly away Our aeroplane
(Nop pi nop pi nal ah ra, woo ri Bee-hang-gi)

Practice, practice and practice!
We are going to perform this song on Dec. 4th when we come back from the break!
and be prepared to fly your own plane for the performance:)
(Little shout out to Andy, the best pilot! Yay!)

I will miss you dearly!
Happy Thanksgiving:)
