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. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

    I noticed that in these lessons, there is -yo at the end of a lot of words like eopseo-yo and isseo-yo, in this it it bogo si-peo-yo. In the kpop songs where I’ve these phrases there is no -yo, though. Why is this? Is it covered later on?

      Yes. It will be covered later on. ;-) You can drop -요 if you want to make it sound casual.
