Level 2 Lesson 11 / Self-introduction / 자기소개

When you learn a foreign language, there are always times when you have to introduce yourself to others while your vocabulary is still limited. In this case, sometimes, rather than trying to just memorize a lot of words at once, learning to use various sentence patterns that are necessary for self-introduction can be much more helpful. And the rest is just looking up the dictionary!

Level 2 Lesson 2 / object marking particles / 을, 를

안녕하세요. ^^ In this lesson, we are looking at the object marking particles. As we mentioned a few times through our previous lessons, there are different types of particles in Korean, and these particles (subject marking particles, topic marking particles, location marking particles, and so on) are what make it easy to understand Korean sentences, even when the word order changes.
If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to leave us a comment! 감사합니다.
