Oh-- sorry if that was confusing, the "실내" isn't used for real rock! Just the "암장" (or "암벽등반" for that matter!). . . of course, these days among climbers it's as likely to be a 스포즈 클라이밍센터
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!

Hi! Can you help me? I want to buy a pair of rock climbing shoes.
안녕하세요! 실례합니다, 좀도음수세요? 암벽화 살고싶어요.
An-nyeong ha-se-yo. Shil-ye-ham-nee-da, jom-dor-eum ju-seyo? Ahm-byeok-hwa sal-go-ship-o-yo.

I'm a beginner climber. I want an all-round pair of rock-shoes please.
나는 초보암벽등반자예요, 올라운드 암벽화 원해요.
Nar-neun cho-bor ahm-byeok-deung-ban-ja ye-yo. Allround ahm-byeok-hwa won-hae-yo.

My regular shoe-size is 260mm. (usually rock-shoes will be 1-2 sizes smaller)
나의 보통구두크기 260mm 입니다.
Nar-wee bor-tong gu-du-keugi 260mm im-nee-da.

This pair is (a bit) too small.
이 암벽화는 (조금)작군요.
Ee ahm-byeok-hwa (jor-keum) jak-gun-yo.

This pair is (a bit) too big.
이 암벽화는 (조금)커군요.
Ee ahm-byeok-hwa (jor-keum) ko-gun-yo

Great! This pair fits well.
좋아요! 이 암벽화 잘맞는군요.
Jor-ha-yo! Ee ahm-byeok-hwa jal-mat-neun-gun-yo!

Do you have any other models/ brands like this?
이 암벽화 다른모델 비슷다, 있어요?
Ee am-byok-hwa da-reun model biseut-da iss-o-yo?

Thanks so much!
정말 감사합니다!
Jeong-mal Kam-sa-ham-nee-da

How much is it (are they)? Please sell them cheaply to me! (smile here)
올마예요? 좀 싸게주세요!
Ol-mar-ye-yo? Jom ssar-ge-ju-se-yo

Also, I want a chalkbag and chalk. I just want a cheap chalk bag.
도, 초크백와 초크 살거싶어요. 그냥 싼는초크백 원해요.
Doh, chalk-bag wa chalk sal-go-ship-o-yo. G'nyang ssan-neun chalk-bag won-hae-yo

OK thanks again, hope you sell a lot today! Bye!
한번도, 감샇ㅂ니다. 많이파세요. 안냥히계세요!
Han-beon-doh, kam-sa-ham-nee-da. Mahn-hee par-say-yo! An-nyeong-hee-kye-se-yo!

General Korean chat for shopping etc:

I want a (some) X = Na-neun X won-hae-yo
X=beer (maek-ju), toilet paper (hwa-jang-ji), milk (oo-yu), help (dor-wa)

Is there any (Do you have any) X? = X iss-se-yo?
X= california roll (kim-bap), whisky (yang-ju), toothpaste (chi-yahk)

There is X (I have X) = X iss-se-yo.
X=aspirin (aspirin), English newspaper (yeong-o shin-moon), ramen (ra-myeon), English map (yeong-o ji-doh), pens (ball-pen), rice-vodka (so-ju)

There is no X (I have no X) = X ob-seo-yo
X=apples (sar-gwa), friends (chin-gu), family (kar-jok), brothers (hyeong-je), money (don), wine (por-toe-ju), pencils (yeon-pil)

I want to go to X (an X) = X ka-go-ship-o-yo
X=a park (gong-won), hospital (byeong-won), Subway station (ji-ha yok), karyoke room (nor-ray-bang), trad market (shee-jang)

Do you like X? = X jor-ah-hae-yo?
X=spicy food (mae-un-shik), squid (or-jing-o), singing (nor-ray), Korea (Han-guk), Korean food (Han-shik), nightclubs (night-uh), hiking (deung-san), going to movies (yeong-hwa-bor-neun)

I like X = Na-neun, X Jo-a-hae-yo
X=rock music (rok eum-ak), Korean bbq (bulgogi), fish (saeng-seon), sushi (su-shee), pretty girls (yep-beun yo jar), beautiful girls (ah-rem-da-un yo-jar), home-brewing (jip-e, maek-ju man-deul-ki), you (dang-shin)

Hello! = An-nyeong-ha-se-yo

감사합니다 (감삼니다)
Thanks! = Kahm-sa-ham-ni-da (kahm-sahm-ni-da)

You're welcome = Cheon-man-hae-yo

No problem = Mun-je ob-se-yo

Goodbye (you leaving) = An-nyeong-hee-kye-se-yo (stay well)

Goodbye (another person leaving) = An-nyeong-hee-kar-se-yo (go well)

Good (cool/ sweet/ OK/ etc) = Jor-ha-yo!


Well-done (good job etc) = Su-gor-hess-o-yo!

맛있다!/ 맛있세요!
Delicious! = Ma-shee-da!/ Ma-shee-say-yo!

네/ 얘
Yes = Ne/ Yeah

I am (I feel) X = Na-neun X.
X=happy (haeng-bok-hae-yo), sick (ah-po-yo), angry (hwa-nang-hae-yo), lonely (way-ro-hae-yo),OK (kwayn-chan-ha-yo), burnt-out (him-de-ray-yo), embarrassed (chahng-pee-hae-yo), crazy (mi-chin-hae-yo)

I'm not X = Na-neun X ahn-hee-hae-yo (note the ahn here makes it "not")
not X = not happy (haeng-bok-ahn-hae-yo), not tired pee-gon-ahn-hae-yo, not drunk (sul-chwee-ahn-hae-yo), not bad (nap-beun-ahn-hae-yo).

You can make this last one into a question too (like "Are you happy/ tired/ OK ? etc), just by starting with "you" (dang-shin) then the X words.

당신 괜찮아요?
Are you OK? = Dang-shin, kwayn-chan-ha-yo?

나는 괜찮아요.
I'm OK. Na-nen, kwayn-chan-ha-yo

당신 피곤해요?
Are you tired? = Dang-shin, pee-gon-hae-yo?

네, 피곤해요.
Yes, I'm tired. = Ne, pee-gon-hae-yo.

안이요, 피곤안해요.
No I'm not tired. = Ah-ni-yo, pee-gon-ahn-hae-yo.

Actually Koreans usually don't use the words for "me/ you" (na-neun/ dang-shin) etc, they just assume you know who they mean, or use names.

배고파요?Are you hungry? = (dang-shin) bae-gor-pa-yo?

Are you American? =(dang-shin/ Scott) Mee-guk sa-ram ye-yo?

배고파, 안해요.No, I'm not hungry = ah-nee-ye-yo. Bae-gor-pa, ahn-hae-yo.

네, 미국사람예요.
Yeah I'm an American. = Ne, mee-guk sa-ram ye-yo.
