원어민처럼 말하기! (기초 영어 회화) 1편: 인사말 (Part 2)

오랜만에 새로운 연재를 시작합니다!
이번에 처음으로 체계적으로 초보자를 위한 영어 회화 강의를 만들어봤습니다. 앞으로도 꾸준히 다양한 상황을 다루는 강의를 만들어서 올릴 예정입니다.

첫 편에서 원어민처럼 인사하는 법을 살펴보고 한국사람들이 항상 궁금해하는 ‘What’s up?’에 대한 적합한 대답을 배웁니다!

공유하거나 댓글을 달거나 라이크해주시면 많은 도움이 됩니다. 주변에 기초 영어를 공부하고 싶어하는 사람이 있으면 소개해주세요.

도움이 많이 되시길! ^^
