It’s super easy to cheer on our local athletes and Team Canada in English, but what about Korean? I went around the Comox Valley to see if you could pronounce some simple Korean words surrounding Canada and the Olympics. Here’s how you guys did!

Gold Medal:

I’m Sorry:

Win Canada:


If you want to play along at home, try your hand at these Korean words. If you get stuck, there’s some audio below to compare your attempts to!

Kaenada igida – Win Canada!

Nun – Snow

Maegju – Beer

Mian Haeyo – I’m Sorry

Guemmedal – Gold Medal

Hangug-eo – Korea


Let me know how you did! Reach out on Facebook or Twitter, and you can always send me an email:! And as always… GO CANADA GO!!!
