    내일 저는 아버지의 집에 갈 거요.

    Tomorrow I’m going to my dad’s house.

  • nofoofro

    What is the difference between 을 거예요 (taught in this lesson) and
    겠어요 (which I’ve seen elsewhere). Are they both future tense endings? Is one more formal than the other? 감사함니다 🙂

    • Seokjin Jin

      You can use -겠어요 for present tense and future tense.

      If the subject is “me”, it will show the speaker’s intention or will.
      ex) 이런 실수는 다시 하지 않겠어요. I won’t do this mistake again.

      If the subject is the third person (like he or she), it will show the speak’s expectation, and the content is more related to recent circumstance and the nuance is stronger than -ㄹ 거예요.
      ex) 비가 오겠습니다. It will rain tomorrow.
      Actually, this expression is used in weather forecast.

      Concerning -(으)ㄹ 거예요, it shows the speaker’s will and guess.

      Because the nuance is little bit weaker, it sounds less reliable but it is used often when people say personal opinion.

      Great! It would be more natural if you say “내일 공부할 거예요. 재미있을 거예요. 여러분 화이팅!”

    왜 내일 학교 에서 안 왈가예요?
    (Why won’t you come to school tomorrow?)
    And also, I have some problems with spelling, how can I overcome them?
    감사함니다, teacher. (Also what is teacher in 한국어)
    여로분 fighting!

    • Gem

      저는 지금 부터 나층에 까치 공부할가예요 -> 저는 지금부터 나중에 까지 공부할거예요.

      (I’m going to study from now until later on.)

      왜 내일 학교 에서 안 왈가예요? -> 내일 왜 학교에 안올거예요?

      (Why won’t you come to school tomorrow?)

  • 김태형 <3

    Hey hey hey guys! Can anybody help me out with this? ㅠ.ㅠ

    Let’s say that you are going to go to somewhere where some of your relatives live. And you want to say that “I will see you tomorrow ” can you say;

    “네일 당신는 볼 거예요.”

    Thank you so much for your precious responds ㅎㅎㅎ 😀


    {Too many things ㅠ.ㅠ}

    • 김태형 <3

      But like not plural you. Just for A person.

  • Kiaxet

    Are these correct?
    내일 너 볼 거예요- I’ll see you tomorrow

    이거 나증 읽을 거예요- I’ll read that later

  • Dana

    ㄹ 거예요 is it’s only used when speaking or is it also used in writing?

    • Sytabish

      Its used in writing as well. Refer to the pdf, you will find lots of examples.

  • haha you guys are awesome XDDDD

  • j

    why is there a 에 in 얼마에 팔 거예요? Isn’t how much 얼마나 ?

    • Suga Swag

      얼마 is used when talking about money, when 얼마나 is how. The translation for the example you are talking about says “AT what price”. 에 means at, so you add it there.

  • Suga Swag

    A : 내일은 핸드폰 살 거예요! (I’m going to buy a cellphone tomorrow!)
    B : 정말요? 벌써? 돈 있어요? (Really? Already? Do you have money?)
    A : 네, 진짜 살 거예요. 돈 있어요~ (Yes, I really will buy (it). I have money~)


  • 지아

    내일 많이 먹을 거예요! ^.^

  • 잔셋

    I have a question and I cannot find it anywhere. So please please please answer me! ㅠㅠㅠ

    How can you say “I was going to…” in Korean? I already know how to say was and I was just reviewing but then I realized I couldnt find and answer for it. Can you say 내가 말을할거야 있었어 to say I was going to say that in 반말? I looked up at a translation and it said 나는 말을하려고했다. I don’t know and I CAN’T find an answer ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ 도와주세요 선생님! 제바아알 ~~ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

    • Cho Su Hyun

      “내가 그렇게(as such) 말하려고 했(었)어.” or “내가 그걸(or 그것을) 말하려고 했(었)어.” would be the answer that you’re looking for regarding “I was going to say that” in casual style(반말).
      ‘-(으)려고 하다’ is the expression used for ‘to intend to Verb’ or ‘is going to Verb’.
      Refer to the TTMK lesson at http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/2/1/c/21c6ef24195df45c/ttmik-l5l8.pdf?c_id=3210957&expiration=1459716314&hwt=18f01615703f94c19bdd5c26a69a40f5
      ‘했어’ or ‘했었어’ is used for the past tense 반말 of ‘하다’.
