Marker : 에

‘에’ is the marker to indicate object location/place marker and time/date.


1. Object location/place marker

When ‘에’ is used to indicate object location/place marker, “있어요” or “없어요” is always used. In this case, ‘에’ is similar to ‘at’ in English.

Ex) 앤디 씨가 학교 있어요. (Andy is at school)

{학교 means school}


2. Time/Date

‘에’ is also a marker that indicates time or date.

Ex) 저는 3월 한국에 가요. (I go to Korea in March)

{3월 means March}

{한국 means Korea}

{가요 means go}

{The first 에 that appears behind 3월 is the time/place marker}

{The second 에 that appears and not being highlighted, is the object location/place marker}



About nunasaoirse

I have been learning Korean language for more than 8 years in either Singapore or Korea. Writing this blog helps me to refresh my knowledge. I am still revising Korean language every now and then but not actively. This blog consisted of the gist of the several Korean textbooks that I am using and you may find some examples "de-ja-vu".
