My last posting was about days of the week. This time I have learned to say what days it is. I have also learned how Koreans use days in their conversation.
To say what day it is -> 오늘 <일요일>이에요 Onuel Iryoil-eyo. Today is Sunday. Just simply change the word in parenthesis to the current day + the copula 이에요 (ieyo).
If you want to want to ask what is the day today –> 오늘이 무슨 날인지 아라? Oneul Mosun Nal-inja ara? This is asking, ‘do you know what day it is?’. Change 아라 to 아십니까 (ashimnikka) then the question is asked the polite way.
I visited one Korean site which is Korean Class 101 and it says there, when 2 or more days are mentioned or referred to at the same time, the last two blocks (요일-yoil) are removed such that only the first syllable is used.
월금토 (wolkumto) referring to Monday, Friday and Saturday.
