I am making connections between greetings I memorized and the verbs I am learning.  For example, realizing that 지나다 is the verb used in 잘 지냈어요.

  • 안녕하세요? / 안녕하십니까?  Hello
    안녕 安寧 peace
  • 밥 먹었어? / 식사 하셨어요? Have you eaten?
    밥 cooked rice, meal 식사 食事 meal
  • 어디가? / 어디가세요?  Where are you going?
  • 오랜만이다. / 오래간만에 뵙겠습니다 Long time no see.
  • 잘 있었어? / 잘 지냈어요? How have you been? Have you passed the time well?
  • 반가워요 / 반갑습니다.  Nice to meet you
  • 인사 人事 greeting

    지나다 and 지내다 are actually two different verbs. Don’t mix them up! ‘잘 지냈어요’ comes from 지내다.
