MYK Quiz 1: The Match Up

여러분 안녕하세요? (yeo-reo-boon an-nyeong-ha-se-yo? = Hello everyone.)

Since there isn’t a Mind Your Korean installment today because there wasn’t any class, and taking into consideration Ladida’s suggestion, I’ve decided to come up with a quiz based on what we’ve shared so far.

I hope you’ll take part in it for fun (sorry, we don’t have prizes to give away we have a prize now! Read on to find out what it is!) and if you spot errors in the structure of the quiz, 미안합니다 (mianhamnida = Sorry). I just hope I didn’t botch it up too much. Answers will be published next Wednesday (Feb 6).

In the meantime, please submit your answers as a comment in this entry and no peeking! But if you really, really have to, I’ve provided a “Hint” link. Have fun!
