Other Sporting Words in Korean

You just have learned how to say your new word in Korean.

Here’s a trick: Instead of saying 운동 for sports, you could also say 스포츠 [seu-po-cheu], which essentially says the English word Sports in Korean. This is Konglish.

This may be more widely used in Korea, as 운동 is more used to describe ‘exercising body fitness’ in Korean. For example, when people say 운동가자 [woon-dong-ga-ja], it could be translated into ‘let’s go to the gym to work out’ in Korean.

Although the word 운동 generally means sports, it is more widely used as the body fitness in a gym.

Now that you have learned how to say this in Korean, let your friends know about what you have learned today by starting up a conversation about your -or their- favorite team!
