으시/시 = Lets get formal

 

This is an important grammar point. While speaking Korean, its important  to use this particle (formal speech) when speaking to older people or people in higher status. There is no translation, but basically one could say that this particle mean “I respect you“. This is a very important part of Korean culture.

 

Example of the grammar particle “시”

안녕하요? = Hello, how do you do?

니까? = Are you going?

저는 이 일을 하어요. = I did that work
