Korean Everyday Conversation (일상회화)

다 와 가 (I am almost there)

다 와 가 is used when we say that we almost arrived at the appointed place to the person who we are supposed to meet.  We normally use 가다 when we are moving towards the target place instead of 오다 which is used when someone is moving towards the speaker.  For example, if we are at school, we say 학교에 와 (come to school) or 집에 가 (go home) to the listener.  On the contrary, if we are home, we say 학교에 가 (go to school) or 집에 와 (come home).  However, you have to pay attention to the fact that we say 다 와 가 by using 오다  even though the speaker is moving towards the listener.
