VOCABULARY PHRASE USAGE

잘 다녀와요. (jal danyeowayo) "Have a good day," "Take care," "See you"

It's a set phrase you can say to someone who is leaving but is expected to return in the future.
It could be used in the same meaning as "see you later" or "have a good day" depending on
the situation.

It lireally means "Please go and come back well."

People who stay say 잘 다녀와요 (jal danyeowayo) to see someone off. You can also use this
as a response to 다녀오겠습니다 (danyeoogesseumnida.) You can use this phrase basically to
people in your group, because it implies that the person leaving is expected to return in the
future. So, you cannot use this phrase to your clients, when see them off after a meeting.

다녀오겠습니다. (danyeo-ogesseumnida) "See you later."

It literally means "I'll go and come back," since it has the verb 다녀오다 (danyeo-oda) meaning
“to come back.” Its rough English translation is "I'll be back."

The person who is leaving a place says 다녀오겠습니다. (danyeo-ogesseumnida). People


often say this phrase when they leave home, because they are supposed to come back
home. Office workers also use this as a greeting to their co-workers when they leave an office
to visit another company and will come back later. You cannot use this when you leave shops
and restaurants. You can use this phrase to your in-group, such as your family and your co-
workers including your boss. Even in the office, you cannot use this when you leave the office
to go back home, because you are not coming back to the office on that day.

GRAMMAR

The Focus of this Lesson is What to Say When You Leave the Office for a Meeting with a
Client
한국 상사에 다녀오겠습니다.
hanguk-sangsa-e danyeo-ogesseumnida.
"I’m going to Hanguk Trading Company."

When you leave the office for a meeting outside, you are supposed to tell your co-workers
where you are going.

1. 한국 상사에 다녀오겠습니다. (hanguk-sangsa-e danyeo-ogesseumnida.)

In the dialog, Linda tells her co-worker that she is going to 한국 상사, which is 한국 상사에 다녀오
겠습니다. (hanguk-sangsa-e danyeo-ogesseumnida.) Let's break it down. The first part is the
company name she is going to, 한국 상사 (hanguk sang-sa, "Hanguk Traiding Company",) and
it's followed by a destination marking particle, 에 (e.) Next is the conjugated verb 다녀오겠습니
다 (danyeogesseumnida) meaning "to go and come back." Altogether, the sentence meaning
"I'm going to Hanguk Trading Company and coming back" is, 한국 상사에 다녀오겠습니다.
(hanguk-sangsa-e danyeo-ogesseumnida.)

The sentence pattern is, [your destination] plus 에 다녀오겠습니다. (e danyeo-ogesseumnida.)

For example:

1. 이노베이티브 랭기지에 다녀오겠습니다.


ino-beitibeu raenggiji-e danyeo-ogesseumnida
"I'm going to Innovative Language Learning."

Formation:

1. [Destination: company name]에 다녀오겠습니다.


[Destination: company name]e danyeo-ogesseumnida.
"I'm going to [Destination: company name]"

2. 점심 먹으러 다녀오겠습니다. (jeomsim meogeureo danneyogesseumnida)

In addition to your destination, you can also state your purpose, but in that case you need to
use a different particle.

For example:

1. 점심 먹으러 다녀오겠습니다.
jeomsim meogeureo danyeo-ogesseumnida.
"I'm going for lunch."

Simply make a sentence showing the purpose, for example, 점심 먹다 (jeomsim meokda "to
have lunch".) Then, take out 다 (da) and add the particle 으러 (eureo) which indicates the
purpose.

Example..

고객을 만나러 다녀오겠습니다.


gogaegeul mannareo danyeo-ogesseumnida.
"I’m going to meet a client."

How to Record The Time Employees Spend in and out of the Office

In South Korea, the punch card system was commonly used in the past, but you don’t see it in
offices nowadays. Instead, most companies give their staff an ID card, which has an IC chip
inside that keeps track of when they come in and out of the office. The employees just have to
tap their ID card on a card reader. They do this each time they enter or leave the office.
Kyejin: When Korean people take vacation time off from work, they usually send out an email
to let everyone in the office know that they’ll be gone. If they’re out of the office for other
reasons, often times people put up a sign at the desk stating the reason they are away.
For example..

1. 출장 (chuljang) "on a business trip"

2. 휴가 (hyuga) "on holiday"

3. 부재중 (bujaejung) "away from one's des for a short period of time"
