VIDEO| Speakin’ Korean lesson: Thank you for the meal

Making a homemade meal is time-consuming and it also involves clean-up time for washing dishes. Showing your appreciation to the cook is good etiquette to practice.

If you’re invited for a dinner or were invited to a party at a Korean friend’s house, give this Korean phrase a try before eating a meal. This phrase literally means “I will eat very well,” but it also signifies “Thank you for preparing the food.”

“Thank you for the meal (food).” = 잘 먹겠습니다. (jal meokkesseumnida)
