Lexis Korea | No School on 2016.08.15

월요일 노스쿨

Next Monday, our Lexis Korea will be closed because of public holiday (National Liberation Day).  We notify and post this news on our blog to prevent  coming to school on Monday for our students and New Students !!

 

On the 15th Of August is really special public holiday in Korea and our histories.

We called this day as “National Liberation Day” to  honor our historical heroes’ ideals of saving our country. This holiday is really meaningful and unforgettable day for Korean.

By the way, Let’s have fun till next Monday and don’t forget your homework! 😛                And also, we look forward to meeting our new students next Tuesday at our Lexis Korea !!

Korean Slang: 얼짱

얼짱

If someday, someone uses the slang 얼짱 on you, be sure to give them a sweet smile and thank them, for this term is often used to describe a ‘beautiful face’ which applies to both men and women.

얼 is derived from the word 얼굴 which means face and 짱 is an exclamation that means “the best”. 얼짱 literally means you’ve got the best face. So, do take it as a huge compliment!

여러분 혹시 ‘얼짱’이라는 말을 들어본 적 있나요? 얼짱은 ‘얼’굴이 ‘짱’ 예쁘거나 잘생겼다는 의미예요. 남자나 여자 누구에게든 사용할 수 있고 보통 학교에서 얼굴이 제일 예쁘고 잘생긴 친구들에게 많이 사용해요. 기분 좋은 칭찬이니까 언제 어디서든 많이 사용해도 괜찮아요! 여러분 주변에 혹시 얼짱이 있나요?
