In this lesson, we are introducing how to form negative sentences in Korean. In Korean you can either add the word ‘안[an]’ before a verb or conjugate the verb into a negative form by using the verb ending ‘지 않다[ji an-ta]’ Find out how to do that and also practice with some sample sentences by listening to this lesson and as always, if you have any questions or feedback, we will be more than happy to hear them in the comment box!

Everyone, what do you NOT do? 뭐 안 해요?

  • peach sama

    어제 소주는 안마셨어요 🙁 그런데 울지아났어요ㅋㅋㅋ

    • Kenny Lau

      안마셨어요 > 안 마셨어요
      울지아났어요 > 울지 않았어요

      Also, it is safer to use the object-marking particles 를/을 because 소주 is the object of the sentence…

      Correction:

      어제 소주를 안 마셨어요 🙁 그런데 울지 않았어요 ㅋㅋㅋ
