These are all very basic words for years that you will come across often. Notice that the word for year changes depending on the situation.
When counting years using “년”, sino numbers are used. When using “해”, native numbers are used. 년 is most commonly used after years, for example to say 2017, we would add “년” to the end. so it becomes 2017년.
When counting age, it changes again, but we will cover that in a later graphic 🙂
You can find more about periods of time with our cheat sheets over at the Dom & Hyo Store.
