안녕하세요! Sometimes when you want to add emphasis to an action or state of something in English, you add more stress to the verb or by adding a variation of the word “do” in front of the verb. In Korean, however, there is a specific verb ending as well as a sentence structure to use when you want to emphasize. Check out the lesson and become better at emphasizing your speech in Korean!

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.

      Cool :)

      but it should be better to say “생각하기는 했는데, 잊어버렸다.”

      잊어버렸다 is past tense so .. 하는 데-> 했는데. okey?

    • Samier

      Awesome! Thanks Stan :)

      Your way sounds more fluent hehe ^^

    그런데 이PDF를 읽으며 질문이 생겼어요. “기는 VERB지만”이라는 form 자주 쓰여, 아니면 “기는 하지만”이라는 form 더 자주 쓰여요?
