      What are you trying to say!?

    • Juanis


  • Lindsey

    Hello, I was wondering if this sentence structure is okay. Also if the sentence is makes sense? Many thanks!~

    어제 학교에서 한국어 공부 했어요. 그래서 오늘 공왼에사 은동 핼가예요

    • Juanis

      For the first part (어제 학교에서 한국어 공부 했어요.) i dont get why you added a “서” After 학교에 (at school) I would’ve wrote it without it (어제 학교에 한국어 공부 했어요).

      But for the second part (그래서 오늘 공왼에사 은동 핼가예요) i cant understand what you’re trying to say.
      Hope i helped somehow!

  • bella Hasna

    i m going probably asking a stupid question but hhhh what she said at 3.20 hhh

    • Thanh

      It’s “yes, that’s right” :D

  • Svea

    이거 겅부할 가예요!^^

    In the example for 팔다, why is it 얼마에 and not just 얼마?

    • Seokjin Jin

      얼마에 팔아요?
      In this sentencen, the particle 에 includes the meaning of “with”.
      For example, 1000원에 팔아요 can be translated as “I will sell it with this price “1000won””.

    • Svea

      Ah okay, thank you :)

    • Juanis

      “에” Means “at”. So you have to add it to “얼마”.
      얼마에 팔 거예요? = AT what price are you going to sell it?

  • Pandamy

    You made it much easier! Thanks a lot~~

  • Ken

    Is 갈거예요 the same as 갈게요? I often hear the latter to be used by koreans. I think its because that is way easy and smoother to say rather than the former. Is it right?

    • Juanis

      Yes!! 갈거예요 is the same as 갈게요!

  • Joan C

    (Just practicing… Thank you for the lesson!)

    엄마의 집에서 2시쯤에 갈 거예요.

    내일 전화 할 거예요.

  • carolina

    • Seokjin Jin

      Can you see the download button above? You can do right-clicking on the button and choose “save as”, then you can download the file to your computer.

  • Djilian Foster

    Is it correct to add the object particul ( 를 ) ad say : 청바지’를’입을거예요 ?
    Anyone could unswer plz ?! +.+

    • Seokjin Jin

      Yes. It is correct!

    • Djilian Foster

      Thanks for the unswer ^^

  • 애슐리

    You say “누구 만날 거예요?” but why its not 누가 ?

  • 소피

    내일 일할 거예요.

    I am going to go to work tomorrow.

    • Seokjin Jin

      Perfect! :)

  • Mary 영원

    22:53에, “당연하지” 말했어요?
    At 22:53, did she say “당연하지” (to mean “Of course”)?

    • Seokjin Jin

      Correct. Good job!

  • Joshua Grootveld

    In this lesson, you guys used the example of asking a person where he or she is going to meet (어디에서 만날 거예요?) Would it be the same question if you were to ask a friend, for example: Where are we going to meet? -> 우리는 어디에서 만날 거예요? <- is that correct?

  • Juanis

    When you say “누구 만날 거예요?” Why do you use “누구” instead of “누가” ???

    • Jennilyn Paspe

      “who” in korean is “nugu” not “nuga”

    • Juanis

      yeah, but “nuga” is when you add the marking particle… Why not add it this time?

    • mila

      Because, from what I’ve learned here, 누가 is used with the subject and 누구 with the object of a sentence, for example in the sentence 누구 만날 거예요?, “Who are you going to meet?” The “who” is the object, because the person you are asking is the subject, “I am going to meet Juanis” would be an answer. I’m not sure if you understood or I only made it worse xd

    • 유자준

      Dyou mean 누구+가=누가? From what I know is that 가 (different to 는) is focusing on/emphasising the subject So 누가 만날 거예요 probably means WHO are you going to meet whereas 누구 만날 거예요 is, maybe, Who are YOU going to visit/Who are you going to VISIT…. I don’t know for sure but that’s probably the obvious point

    • 유자준

      Or maybe it’s vice versa UGH idk

  • Catia

    Can someone pls recommend me a English Korean dictionary? I seriously have no idea at all which ones are good or anything (plus I tried looking for one but I kinda failed so.. Pls ^-^)

    • Seokjin Jin

      Well, nowadays, I use Naver dictionary often.

    • Catia

      What’s that?
      (Is there a dictionary that let’s you break down the words to understand them better?)

    • 유자준

      예, 저는 또한 Naver를 좋아습니다

  • Brianne Daniels

    No matter what happens in life, I will always know how to say “to go” in Korean lol! 가다 will be that last word to go if I ever forget Korean lol

  • Brianne Daniels

    지금 잠을 거여요. =.= (I think I said it right). 안녕!

  • sora

    it’s unfortunate i cant seem to download the audio on my phone

  • Brandon Harmon

    I was just curious if “뭐 가격에 팔거예요?” would be correct. I know in the lesson “얼마에 팔 거예요?” was said, but I was just wondering if they would have the same meaning or if one is just more common to hear. 감사합니다!

  • 아유미

    Hi! I have a question, if you could explain to me please:

    사다 (to buy) becomes -> 살거예요 (will buy)
    살다 (to live) becomes -> ?

    • Jacko

      I think it would just be exactly the same. It would just depend on the context of the conversation and all that.
      For example if someone said “Where will you live?”
      Its not like you would hear that and think – “Where am I going to buy?” Well technically you would but since they said “where” it kinda already answers the question on what verb they’re using.

      It really just depends on the context of the conversation. Unless I’m wrong and there is some rule for it. In any case, hope I helped.

    • 유자준

      살을거예요 … I think

  • jennifer

    I want to meet Rain/Bi as well!!! woaaa..

    • jennifer

      i ‘m currently watching She is so lovable, i just can’t focus..

  • Udesh sameera senarath

    anneyong haseyo yorobun….
    I have a question . please help me,
    to go verb is “KATH” when it convert to future tense it is “KALKOYEYO”
    my question is;
    can we add “KO SHIPPAYO” for that “KALKOYEYO” ???
    (means how can i say ” I will want to go”???)

    • Udesh sameera senarath

      I’m waiting please help……………….
      :( :(

    • Isabella


    • Udesh sameera senarath

      nugu seyo???

    • Angga El Leo

      i dont think so,
      but first of all, that two should be [go-sip-eo-yo] and [gal-geo-ye-yo] (trust me im an asian :D)

      why? because this [go-sip-eo-yo] “i want to…” is a desire, not a continuous tense. while the other one [gal-geo-ye-yo] is slightly means “i will go” or “im going to go”. and that makes the difference.
      hope it helps

  • jason

    why use “nu gu” instead of “nu ga” in “Who are you going to meet?”

    • KyungHwa Sun

      누구 is a short for 누구가, so it can only be used as the subject of the sentence.
