I might add that there are some different terms for brother and sister. The terms mentioned are only used for younger siblings. If you are a boy then older brother is "hyeong" and older sister is "nuna". If you are a girl then they are 'oppa' and 'eoni' respectively.
Yes is also "ne" and this is used more standardly."Ye" is sort of informal.

I'm Korean and I downloaded a podcast about learning japanese. I saw Korean learning podcast and I heard that- maybe it will be good for travelers. But, 'Good morning' in Korean is '좋은 아침입니다', not '안녕하세요 (An-nyeong ha-seyo.)'. Anyeong haseyo is similar with 'hello', used when you meet elders or when you must be formal. When you meet friends, you can say 'An-nyeong.
