Level 6 Lesson 19 / to improve, to change, to increase / -아/어/여지다 Part 2

Download Available

Remember how to say “to become + adjective”? Some descriptive verbs in Korean used so commonly in this manner that they are almost used as independent words. Let us take a look at some of those words and learn how to say “to improve”, “to change”, “to increase”, etc.


You can view 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.

    Please I’ve got a question on Choi’s picture.The context in Handepon aubsau jyausauyo doesn’t mean My hand phone disappeared? I feel it’s kind of irrelevant to this lesson. Please explain. Thank you.

    요리 실력이 좋아지면 저녁 손님 많아져요. 하지만 맛은 달라지면 손님 없어져요.
    If your cooking skill improves, your dinner guests will increase; however, if the flavor changes, the guests will disappear.

  • Nicole

    I’m curious if this sentence is correct or is there a better way to say it? Or am I just completely wrong? lol
    내가 달라져 봐 봤자 달라지지 못 해요.
    I cant change even if I try.
