Asking for Directions 

 

 

 


# 1

 

  - : Excuse me, but could you tell me how to get to the shopping mall?
  = : Well, you could go there either by bus or by subway. Which do you prefer?    

 

  - : Which is the best way to get there?
  = : If I were you, I would take the subway. It's faster. And also there won't be any traffic.
 
  - : OK. I will take the subway, then. Can you tell me the way to the nearest subway station?
  = : No problem. Go down this road and then turn left.
                  You'll find it at the crossroad.
                  Once you get there, take the green line to City Hall.
                  Then transfer to the red line. Get off at the shopping mall stop.

Pronounciation Clinic 


of / or 의 축약형 발음

of의 /v/음가는, 자음이 뒤에 올 때 탈락되어 발음되는데 이는 보다 발음을 쉽고 자연스럽게 하기 위한 방법이 됩니다.
또한 뒤에 모음이 올 경우에는 /v/음이 모음과 결합하여 한 단어처럼 발음이 됩니다.
먼저 예문을 통해 긴발음과 축약된 발음을 들어보세요.
