Level 9 Lesson 24 – -(ㄴ/는)다면서(요), -(이)라면서(요)

Download Available

If you are familiar with the structure -(으)면서, which was introduced in the previous lesson, it is easy to guess what  -(ㄴ/는)다면서(요) and -(이)라면서(요) mean.  However, if you try to translate -(ㄴ/는)다면서(요) and -(이)라면서(요) literally to English, the translations are much different than the actual meaning because they can be used as a sentence ending. Find out more about these two endings by listening to the podcast and following along in the PDF!

    On L4, L1, what us the difference between 갈수록 and 점점?

    • KyungHwa Sun

      갈수록 = as time goes by
      점점 = gradually, increasingly, more and more

    Ooops sorry, still new to the website.

  • 집에 간다며?랑 집에 간다면서?가 같은 누왕스예요?

    • Seokjin Jin

      거의 같은 뉘앙스예요.

    • KyungHwa Sun

      네. 같아요. =) “-다며” is short for “-다면서.”

    Thank you so much (:

    I have a question about this example:
    가다 + -라면서요 = 가라면서요 = you told me to leave (and now you are saying otherwise)

    가 is a verb, but why did you use 라면서요 instead of 다면서요?

    • TinaMusicFairy

      because 라 is added when you are giving an order.
