Korean Slang: 헛물켜다


The phrase 헛물켜다 literally translates to “meaninglessly drinking a huge amount of water”, however as it is a slang, there’s always a figurative meaning to it.

This phrase is used mainly when someone makes a pointless amount of effort trying to achieve something that is impossible or unpractical.

For example, if you see someone effortlessly trying to be a K-pop idol when they are not talented enough, you may say 헛물겨다. In English, it is similar to the saying that goes “quit chasing rainbows”.

Lovely Teachers


I loved studying at Lexis and would definitely do it again and recommend it. I had a great time meeting new friends from all over the world and the lovely teachers who made our Korean classes fun and entertaining.

저는 렉시스에서 공부하면서 너무 좋았고 당연히 다시 오고 싶고 다른 친구들에게 추천합니다. 다른 나라에서 온 친구들과 한국어 수업을 재미있고 즐겁게 만들어 주신 사랑스러운 선생님들과 좋은 시간을 보냈습니다.

Rewarding Experience!


Lexis has been such a rewarding experience, I have met so many people from different parts of the world. After finish my 4 week course, I feel more confident in speaking Korean. I will continue learning Korean once I return to Australia. Thank you Lexis Korea!

렉시스에서 여러 나라에서 온 많은 친구들을 만나며 정말 보람있는 경험을 했습니다.  4주의 과정을 끝내고 난후 한국어를 말할때 더욱 편해졌습니다. 다시 호주로 돌아가도 계속 한국어를 공부할 것입니다. 렉시스 코리아, 감사합니다!

Seoul an amazing place to get lost


I love to come and study at Lexis. I learned Korean in a fun way, and on a high level. I also met a lot of amazing people and I made friend for life here. I also enjoyed Seoul alot, it’s always so much fun here with a lot of activities to do. Seoul really in th city of night at day or at night time  it’s always fun. Sometime it can be a bit busy or you can get lost, but that’s totally okay. If I could I would like to stay here forever.

저는 렉시스에 와서 공부를 한 것이 너무 좋았습니다. 수준 높은 한국어를 재미있는 방법으로 배웠고 여기서 좋은 친구들을 많이 만들었습니다. 또, 활동할 곳이 많은 서울에서 항상 재미있고 즐거운 시간을 보냈습니다. 서울은 밤의 도시이지만 밤이든 낮이든 항상 즐겁습니다. 가끔은 너무 복잡해서 길을 잃어 버릴 수도 있지만 전혀 문제가 되지 않습니다. 저는 할 수 만 있다면 여기에서 평생 살고 싶습니다.

LEXIS KOREA STUDY TOUR – School of languages from Australia


Since the first day of 2017, we welcomed students from School of Languages, our agent in Australia. Their schedule is broken down into morning session and afternoon session respectively. In the mornings, from 9am onwards, the students attend Korean language classes for 3 hours, followed by a tour around Seoul in the afternoon.

During the two weeks that the students were in Korea, we visited the following places:
– Gangnam Tour
– Dongdaemun Design Plaza
– Insadong
– Korean wave experience
– Nanta Show
– Namsan Hanok Village
– N Seoul Tower
– Kyungbok Palace
– K-pop dance class
– Lotte Mall Aquarium

It was through these various experiences that the students managed to not only learn but also enjoy Korea’s culture.

Whilst the students were here, we arranged for them to stay at homestay with local Korean families where they were able to make wonderful memories and learn more about our culture.

We hope the students had a great experience with us over the two weeks, and that it was memorable for everyone. If the group tour piqued your interest in the Korean culture and language, we hope you will continue studying the Korean language. We hope to meet all of you again in the near future.

2017년의 첫 날부터 렉시스 코리아를 찾아 준 School of Languages Agent 호주 학생들의 study tour를 소개합니다. 오전 9시부터 3시간동안 렉시스에서 한국어를 배우고 오후에 서울을 투어하는 스케줄이었는데요, 2주 동안 한국에 살면서 강남 투어, 동대문 디자인 플라자, 한류 체험, 난타 공연, 남산한옥마을, 남산타워, 경복궁, 댄스 체험, 아쿠아리움을 방문했습니다. 다양한 체험을 통해 한국 문화를 배우고 즐기는 시간이었지요. 또한, 홈스테이에 머물면서 한국 가족들과 추억도 만들고 한국 문화에 한 발짝 가까이 다가가기도 했습니다.
K-pop과 K-drama를 좋아하는 친구들답게 한국어 공부에도 더욱 흥미를 보였는데요, 수업 시간에 친구들 앞에서 한국어로 발표도 하고 서로를 인터뷰하는 활동에도 적극적이었습니다.
한국에서의 시간이 여러분에게는 어떤 기억이었나요? 한국에 대한 관심과 애정으로 호주에서도 한국어를 계속 공부하고 우리 어디에서든지 다시 만날 수 있었으면 좋겠습니다.

Korean Idiom: 입이 짧다


입이 짧다 translates directly to “to have a short mouth”. It’s not possible for someone to have a short mouth, but can you take a quick guess as to what this idiom means? To say that someone has a short mouth means that person has a small appetite and often only eats a small amount of food each time. In English, 입이 짧다 is similar to the idiom “eat like a bird”. On the contrary, if you know of anyone who eats a lot, then you’d say ‘입이 길다’ [ib-i gil-da]. 입이 길다 translates directly to having a long mouth, but it figuratively means that person eats like a horse.

여러분은 무슨 음식이든 맛있게 잘 먹는 편인가요? 한국어에 ‘입이 짧다’는 표현이 있는데요, 안 먹는 음식이 많거나 먹는 양이 아주 적은 친구들에게 쓰는 관용어입니다. 여러분은 입이 짧은 편인가요? 음식을 가려 먹는 친구들이 주변에 있다면 이 표현을 적절하게 사용해 보세요. 하지만 반대 의미로 먹는 양이 많거나 아무 음식이든 가리지 않는 사람에게 ‘입이 길다’는 표현은 하지 않는다는 것 꼭 기억해 두세요.
