폴 : Paul
이에요. : a sentence ending, it means “is/are/am”


1. Use :  N(consonant ending) +이에요
                N(vowel ending) + 예요

2. Meaning : Be verb like is, are, am (Polite way and informal way(friendly))

  • There is no space between noun and 예요/이에요
  • In Korean, there is no difference between is/are/am, so you don’t need to think about the subject at this moment.
  • Present tense

3. Example :  의(vowel ending) +예요 -> 의사예요 ~is/are/am a doctor

카메(vowel ending) +예요 -> 카메라예요   ~is a camera

미국 사(consonant ending) + 이에요 -> 미국 사람이에요 ~is/are/am an American

선생(consonant ending) +이에요 -> 선생님이에요  ~is/are/am a teacher

4. You can use this as a question.

eg) 엄마가 의사예요?  Is your mom a doctor?
이거 카메라예요?  This is a camera?
이름이 뭐예요? What is your name? 
이 사람이 누구예요? Who is this person?
친구가 선생님이에요?  Is your friend a teacher?
