VIDEO| Speakin’ Korean lesson: Giving taxi drivers directions

When staying in a foreign country, buying or renting a car is not always an option. You may find yourself instead hailing a cab to get you to where you need to go. Here are some general Korean phrases to help direct the taxi driver there.

When you want to give directions to a taxi driver, you can use this expression: “(___eulo ga-ju-se-yo.”

For example, if you want to say “Please go to Pyeongtaek station,” you can use this: “(Pyeongtaekyok)eulo ga-ju-se-yo.”

Or you can simply say the phrase without the “eulo”: “(Pyeongtaekyok) ga-ju-se-yo.”

“Please go to ___”

= ___ 으로 가주세요 . (___-eulo ga-ju-se-yo)

 (으로 eulo= to, gajuseyo = please go) 

Stay safe and keep an eye out for the next Speakin’ Korean lesson.
