Have you ever found yourself wanting to express the ease of difficulty of doing something in Korean? Perhaps you’ve gotten a new high-tech Korean cellphone and want to say, “this is difficult to use!”, or you are super-tech savvy and want to show off by exclaiming “This is easy!” In this lesson, 현우 and 경은 will help you learn what sentence structure to use when you want to say something like this!

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.

    Hy!
    I don’t understand why have to put the “ga” subject marker. What does it mean?
    이건 만들기(가) 어려워요.

    Without “ga” it means the same thing? Or not?

      One way to look at it technically is that 어렵다 / 쉽다 are descriptive verbs. These verbs accept only subjects.
      Subject of 어려워요 is 만들기. The meaning is same without it as well, but 만들기가 어려워요 is how you write it fully.
      or 다가가기가 싫어요 (I don’t want to go close), 공부하기가 좋아요.

      I think there’s little mistake… you said like “foreigners learning is easy for TTMIK”.
      should say
      외국인은 Talk To me In Korean에서 배우기 쉽고 편리해요.
      or Talk To me In Korean 외국인들이 배우기 쉽고 편리하게 해요.
      Well and there’s other ways.. like
