[Part 1]

Hello, everyone.

My name is Robin.

And in this video, I’m going to teach a very important question to ask a foreigner about how much alcohol they can drink.

Alright…

So, here is the question.

And the question asks, “How much soju can you drink?”

Ok, you want to know how much alcohol they can drink.

“How much soju can you drink?”

Now, I’m asking about soju, but you can change the question to beer, wine, maekeuli.

Ok…

“How much beer can you drink?”

It’s the same question.

And the same answer.

So, “How much soju can you drink?”

You want to use “I can…”.

“How much soju ‘can you’…?”

“I can drink…”

“I can drink…”

“I can drink…”

Well, ‘how much can you drink’?

Well, you should say…if we’re talking about soju…

Soju usually uses the smale cups.

Ok…

So, “How much soju can you drink?”

“I can drink one cup.”

Uhh, the ‘glass’…usually we don’t use ‘glass’ for soju.

We use the ‘cup’ for soju.

The ‘glass’ is for beer.

So, if asked “How much beer can you drink?”

“I can drink one glass.”

Ok…

Now, bottle…

That’s ok for soju or beer.

They both use bottles.

So, “How much soju can you drink?”

“I can drink one bottle.”

Alright…

So, agian, you want to use a ‘cup’ for the small cups of soju.

‘Glass’ for a beer glass.

Also, a wine glass.

And the bottle, can be used for anything.

That’s ‘one’.

Now, let’s drink a little more.

“How much soju can you drink?”

“I can drink two cups.”

Ok…

Now this is ‘one’, we’re going to ‘two’.

Two cups.

Notice we have the ‘s’ now.

We have to make is plural.

There’s two.

“How much soju can you drink?”

“I can drink two cups.”

“How much beer can you drink?”

“I can drink two glasses.”

Ahh…”How much beer can you drink?”

“I can drink two bottles.”

Ok…

So, if your going more than one, like ‘two’, ‘three’, ‘four’, you have to use ‘cups’, ‘glasses’, ‘bottles’.

Ok…

Don’t say “Two bottle”, “I can drink two bottle.”

That sounds very strange.

Make sure you have that ‘s’.

“I can drink two bottles.”

Alright…

Maybe you don’t drink alcohol.

You don’t like alcohol.

You never drink soju.

You never drink beer or anything.

This is what you want to say.

“How much soju can you drink?”

“I never drink soju.”

“I never drink beer.”

“I never drink wine.”

Ok…or also you could say “I don’t like to drink soju.”

Ok, you tell the person, “I never drink it.”

Alright…alright…so remember, “One cup”, “Two cups”, to plural.

Ahhh…I don’t know how much soju you drink.

A lot of students ask me how much soju I can drink.

When I first came to Korea, I could drink about two bottles of soju.

But, these days, I don’t drink so much soju.

So maybe I can drink…ahh..about..ahh..one bottle of soju.

Ahh, but recently, I never drink soju.

Anyway, that’s a good question to ask a foreigner about how much they can drink.

Uhh…I hope you learned it and I hope you use it.

Ok…

That’s it and see you next time.
