Welcome to Level 5!!! In the first lesson of Level 5, we are going to look at how to say that you “almost did” something or “nearly did” something. This is used both in situations where you “wanted” to do something (but only almost did it) and in situations where you “didn’t want” to do something and fortunately didn’t do it but almost did it. Listen in to find out how to use this “-(으)ㄹ 뻔 했다” ending in natural context and be sure to practice with us by leaving us comments! Thank you!!

Welcome everybody to the 2nd lesson of Level 5. In this lesson we are going to introduce how the honorific suffix -시- [-si-] is used in “politer” and “more formal” situations. Even if this is the first time you have heard about this “honorific suffix”, you probably have already seen some expressions before that have this word -시- in them, such as 안녕하세요, 안녕히 가세요 or 주세요. Thank you for studying Korean with us!! Enjoy!
