Is 치맥 chicken and beer?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/omniduo

Yes. Two words are combined.

치킨과 맥주

치킨 – Chicken

과 – And

맥주 – Beer

치켄 = fried chicken 닭고기 = chicken meat in general

Then, shouldn't 치킨과 맥주 be accepted? That's what i wrote and it says it's wrong -.-

I think 치맥 is the name of the plate. Is a tipical food in korea

Here I am on a diet, and Duolingo is giving me cravings for beer and chicken...

I put 사람들이 한국에서 치맥을 먹어요, but it was counted wrong. Does changing the order of the words in the phrase have a different connotation?

I have a similar question. I wrote 사람들이 치맥을 한국에서 먹어요, and it was marked wrong. Why?

How do you guys write korean is there an app?

You can install the korean keyboard on your phone or computer in the language settings of your device, but if you're on pc you will need a bit of practice to memorise where each letter is, since your keyboard probably has a latin alphabet printed on the keys. You can easily swift between languages and will not have to change the settings everytime you want to type in a different language. Just google "how to install korean keyboard on [your device]" for more specific instuctions

Why is "한국에서 사람들이 치맥을 먹습니다." incorrect?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IshikaTane3

I always get confused when to use 에 and when to use 에서!!!

Isn't it grammatically incorrect to say/imply "eat beer"..?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WildWildBasch

In English yes. However in Korean the word 치맥 is a pairing of both, therefore it is correct to say. You don't divide the word in Korean.
