Welcome to our “causative” lesson. In English, when you say that you “make something bigger” or “to make someone sit down”, you need the verb “make” but in Korean, you can attach a single suffix to the verb and the verb can take on the causative meaning. For example, 녹다 means “to melt”, and when you want to say “to make something melt”, you can say 녹이다 instead of 녹다. Listen to this lesson to learn more about these suffixes, 이/히/리/기/우/구/추.
