HI, on my spare time, I work at this korean grocery store. Unfortunately, I dont know how to speak in korean so well, well almost nothing. I just know few words . The thing is that there are lots of customers who dont speak in english as well, so can you guys tell me some helpful sentences in a grocery store.

Also, I need help on the following.

What is the difference between gamsahamnida and kovmavayo?
On what cases do u use them?
What is the difference between ani and shiro?
What does mashimaseyo mean?
What does dah nag ah sah yo mean?

kamsa hamnida is more polite,while the more formal version of koma woyo is komap sumnida.
ani means 'no',while shiro can mean 'i dont like it' or 'i dont want'.


sorry i dont get yr last question.

well se7enzgirl got it right =) (Sorry if my Korean spelling is wrong...cause my spelling and grammar utterly sucks -__-; ). Anyways basically Korean language and asian languages in general have a degree of formality. You can say the same in an informal way or formal way, or a REALLY formal way (reserved for elders, figures of high authority).

Gam-sa-ham-ni-da (감사함니다) is a formal version of "Thank you" while Go-ma-wo-yo (고마워요) is a little less formal and like se7enzgirl said Go-map-seom-ni-da (고맙섬니다) is the more formal version.
ma-shi-ma-sae-yo (마시마새요) = is a formal, and it basically says "Please don't drink _______."
ma-sheo-yo (마서요) = is formal and says "Please drink."
Da-na-ga-seo-yo (다나가서요) = formal for saying "We're out of (a certain product)."
You'd basically say... Jae-song-ham-ni-da ____________ da-na-ga-seom-ni-da. (재송함니다 _______ 다나가섬니다.) --> I'm sorry we are out of _______________.
a-ni (아니) = Informal version of "No"
a-ni-yo (아니) = Formal version of "No"
shi-ro (시로) = Informal version of saying "I don't want" or it could be interpreted "I don't like"
shi-ro-yo (시로오) = more formal of saying "I don't want."

(I don't that's the right spelling for the last -_____-; )
cause shi-reo/shi-ro are spelled differently and mean two different things. Shi-ro probably means I don't like but shi-reo means to carry/put items in a car.



as for some helping sayings umm... you should learn the counters.
1 - 일 (il)
2 - 이 (i (pronounced like the letter "e")
3 - 삼 (sam)
4 - 사 (sa)
5 - 오 (o)
6 - 육 (yuk (prounced yook)
7 - 칠 (chil)
8 - 팔 (pal)
9 - 구 (gu (pronounced goo)
10 - 십 (ship)
11 - 십일 (ship-il)
21 - 이십일 (i-ship-il)

also learning what the Korean words for certain vegetables will be helpful, if you can take time and memorize what's on the cards on the groceries it'd really help you :unsure:.

uhh... I can't think of anything else...hope this helps ^_^
