How would you say a spring in Korean? It’s called 봄 [bom]. Usually the spring comes around in March in Korea, where you can see all the seeds and plants start to grow from the fresh ground. Also, most of the school will start their new year in March, so for the majority of Koreans, spring means ‘fresh beginning’.

여름 [yeo-reum] – Summer
This is how you would say summer in Korean: 여름 [yeo-reum]. 여름 is how to say summer in Korean, how about summer vacation? Korean people are usually very hard-working people and they do not have set vacation weeks negotiated when signing up to be an employee at a company. Most people take way less than a week average vacation a year, but they make the best out of it. Vacation from work is called 휴가 [hyoo-ga], but most people call the summer vacation 바캉스 [ba-kang-sseu] in Korean. 바캉스 is actually a word originated from an English word ‘vacance’, which usually means that you are vacationing somewhere to get away from the heat. Similarly, some people call the summer vacation as 여름휴가, just simply putting the word summer and vacation together.
이번 여름에는 비치에 가서 파도랑 같이 놀고싶어. [ee-beon yeo-reum-ae-nuen bee-chee-ae ga-suh pa-doh-rang ga-chi nol-go-si-ppo].
This summer, I would like to go to a beach and play with waves.
여름방학 동안에는 밖에서 뛰어 놀 수 있어서 너무 좋아. [Yeo-reum bang-hak dong-ahn-ae-neun ba-kke-seo ddiu-eo-nol-soo-ee-sseo-suh neo-moo jo-ah].
During the summer break, It is so good that I can play and run outside.
Note that 여름 방학 was used to describe ‘summer break’ from school
가을 [Ga-eul] – Fall
You would say 가을 [ga-eul] to say fall in Korean. Korean fall is usually only a few months (September to November) but it is absolutely beautiful. Just like many other falls and autumns in other countries in the world, the fall season is to harvest all the crops that you have been growing all year long. They would say that the sky is high and horses will gain weights, and they will say 천고마비 [cheon-go-ma-bi] to describe the season.
가을 하늘은 참으로 높고 맑은거 같애. [ga-eul ha-neul-eun cham-eu-ro nop-go mar-geun-geo ga-tte].
It seems that the sky in the fall is very clear and high.
가을이 제일 좋은 이유는 너무 덥지도 않고 춥지도 않아서야. [ga-eul-ee jae-il jo-eun ee-yu-neun neo-moo deop-ji-do an-ko choop-ji-do an-ah-seo-ya].
The reason I like the fall the best is that it is not too hot, nor too cold.
Note that in some Korean sentences, it is common to omit subjects such as I and you.
