Level 6 Lesson 23 / Passive Voice – Part 2

Download Available

Welcome to Part 2 of the Passive Voice lesson! In Part 1, we learned how sentences in the Passive Voice are made in general, and in this part, we will be looking at how the passive voice in English and in Korean differ from each other. Don’t worry, there are many example sentences to help you out with this lesson! Happy studying!

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.

    finally…part 2 passive voice ^^

  • Debasish

    Thanks to TTMIK a lot for this lesson…but I have a doubt. So far we have seen the usage of “거예요” for future tense. ex- 할거예요., 갈거예요 ..etc. But this time we saw usage of 거예요 for past tense ex- 한국에서 만든 거예요. Can it also be used for past tense and present tense?? Hyun woo 성생님, Please explain and give some word examples.

      hi,I am not a teacher but just wanna give a little help.

      for future tense – verb+ㄹ/을 거예요.
      for present tense – verb + 는 거예요.
      for past tense – verb + ㄴ/은 거예요.

      선생님들이 고쳐주세요,실수 있으면.^^

      Hey debasish, i dont think this is future tense, its in the form of -는 거 or -은 거., therefore it is 만든 거예요 which basically means, “the fact it was made” or “the making of this object” or something like that!
      I could be really wrong, but thats what I THINK it is. but im definitely NO teacher lol

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
