Lesson 67 (Intermediate 1A Lesson 5): End Chapter 2

In this lesson1, we covered the rest of Chapter 2 in the textbook, then the video supplement handout. Finally, we started on Chapter 3 (vocab only). The lesson ended slightly over time, about 4 minutes over.

We started with Quizlet, in particular the sentences for Chapter 2. Initially, before all the students had joined the Zoom call, we were taking turns to translate each card from English to Korean. Later on, we kind of did it together. I realise I'm not very good at this so clearly I have not practised the sentences well enough.

The video supplement worksheet had 3 dialogues, followed by a short tongue twister section. We listened to the dialogues and filled in the blanks (though the answers were printed on the next page). After that, we practised with a partner. Because my handout was missing the last page2, when we did the practice, I had the teacher in the breakout room since she was sharing her screen for me to view it.

Culture Note

There is a passage to read, which is what we did. This is similar to Chapter 1. I took a peek at Chapter 3, and this seems like it would be the theme from now on.

The passage (and the first section with some images of online club banners) mentions a 태사모. From the image clearly it's a Taekwondo club, 태 = 태권도. 모 = 모임 (meeting), and 사 = 사랑 (love). So it's a club for Taekwondo lovers. (It's covered in the passage, but the teacher had asked us if we knew what it was before reading it.)

The point for discussion was the activity clubs popular in our country. We didn't really talk about this when we got here because we discussed it during the Listening section, where the teacher asked what club we would join if we had time. (She rightly realised that lack of time was a problem for us.)


This is an extension of the last pronunciaton rule from the previous 1B book, Chapter 16, covered in Lesson 60.

The only difference is that now the consonant ㅈ is mentioned, because in this chapter we learnt the V-(으)ㄹ 줄 알다/모르다 grammar.

The Rule: When you have '-을/ㄹ' (i.e. any ㄹ grammar) followed by the initial consonants 'ㄱ, ㅅ, ㅈ', then 'ㄱ, ㅅ, ㅈ' are pronounced as their respective double consonant counterparts [ㄲ, ㅆ, ㅉ].

  1. Also, I can't believe it's already the fifth lesson. I double checked when I saw the title, and my first reaction was, That can't be right. 

  2. Later on, when we started on Chapter 3 and I dug out all the papers for Chapter 3 from the envelope it was delivered in, I noticed there was a loose sheet that was torn in the upper left hand corner, where it should have been stapled. It looked like it was for Chapter 3's extra handout (the torn bit seems to fit), but the content was for Chapter 2. Seems like it was misplaced; could have been me when I reorganised the sheets. I can't remember.
