"Yes" in Korean
So I am using different kinds of learning tools to get fluent in Korean, and this is one of them.On other apps I am using 'Ne' is the way to say yes, but here it says 'Ye' is the way to say yes. I just wanted to confirm which way is the correct way, so that I could get this right.
Thank you! :)
A very interesting aspect of the language and the culture are the levels of politeness. As ghostlywolf has pointed out, both are correct, meaning an affirmative response to the question that has been asked. Gray Roze rightly points out that 네 is far more common. Usage depends on the situation and who is being addressed. 예 is more formal, more respectful, more honorific
네 is the most common form for yes in korean. but you can also use 예 it sounds a bit more formal. and another form for yes is 응 this is mostly used in text messages and in spoken korean but it not used in formal conversations.
I know 3 ways of saying "yes" in Korean:
네 [ne] (Common)
예 [ye] (Polite)
응 [eung] (Uncommon)
예 or "ye", so yes duo is correct and is better and does not cost anything quit the other program lol xD
??? 네 is correct, it's actually (in my experience) more common than 예 as well. Also, it's good to use other programs than Duolingo in order to learn as much as possible.
xD Thank you for your help :) I also watch K-dramas and sometimes they say 'Ye' and 'Ne' Or sometimes I just can't hear the difference :')
