Learn Korean Ep. 99: Korean Counters

Keykat wants to eat pizza, so I guess I can let her choose the toppings for once. I mean, it's not like she's going to put anything weird on there. It should be something simple... I hope.

This week's lesson will teach you Korean counters, and connect together the two Korean number systems we learned in the last episodes - both Sino-Korean and Pure Korean numbers. Counters are useful for counting things, and we'll need to learn how to use numbers with counters (such as 개, 명, 마리, etc.) in order to count different things in Korean.

Remember that there are free extended PDFs available for every "Learn Korean" episode (at the bottom of this post), and each contains additional information or examples not covered in the video. You can move through them at your own pace, print them out and use them as a free workbook, or skim them for a quick review before or after watching a lesson.

    Hi Team, a little doubt. I know that 개 counter is apply for things in normal and 권 for books. but when counting passport why there is 여권 두 개 (two passports)? 여권 is like 수첩. but why not 여권 두 권. please elaborate. so much confusing.
    Thanks in advance.

      Using 권 is also correct, since it's technically a book. However 개 is more commonly used since a passport is such a tiny and thin book. People just consider a passport to be a "thing" more than they consider it to be a "book."
