    thank you for the lesson ,

    i am little confused , is it only if we said n.1 & n.2 at the beginning we follow them by No.3 or 4 .. ?? that mean No .3 or No.4 can’t came alone in order give niance of ” i mean ” but No.1 & No.2 can come alone ?? i need explain please
    _ another thing no.3 you mentioned (ㄴ/은/는)다고요 but when can we use 은 , in the previous lessons we use only (ㄴ/는)다고요 ??
    help please >>>>

  • samah

    is my sentence correct ??

    제 말뜻은 실패해도,해보야되다고요 / i mean, even if i fail , i have to try >>>?

    • Sanjeeda Masroor

      I think it should be 제 말뜻은 실패해도 해봐야 됀다고요 as ‘해봐야 되다’ is an action verb.
