In our previous lesson, we learned how to use -(으)ㄹ 줄 알다 to say “to think/know that something will happen”. This sentence ending, however, can be also used to express “can”, “to be able to”, or “to know how to”. The same meanings can also be expressed through -(으)ㄹ 수 있다, so through this lesson, let’s find out how these two verb endings are used similarly or differently to express “can” or “to be able to”.
