안녕하세요! In this TTMIK lesson, let’s look at how to say “I want to”!!! It’s very important to know how to say this when you start learning a foreign language because you need to express what you want in order to get what you want. Using this expression, you will be able to say what you want to eat, what you want to see, or where you want to go. Now listen in to find out how to use this expression, and while you do, be sure to check out the free PDF lesson notes as well! 감사합니다.

You can download a free PDF for this lesson here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here.

    I have a question about 보고 싶어요. Can it be used for things as well as people? For instances, as I understand it, “James 보고 싶어요” would mean “I miss James” or “I want to see James”. However, in English if you miss a thing you can’t really say you want to see that thing, as you can with people. Say I’m on a diet. Can I say “버거 보고 싶어요” to mean I miss eating burgers, or would it just mean I want to look at a burger?
