Level 2 Lesson 14 / too, also / -도 – Part 2

This is part 2 of our lesson on how to say “also” or “too” in Korean. In this lesson, we are introducing how to use -도 with verbs. In order to add -도 verbs, you need to change the verb into the noun form, -기, so listen in to find out both how to change a verb into the noun form and also how to use -도 with verbs after that.

You know we LOVE comments, don’t you? 😉

    저는 설거지도 했어요.

    저는 머리카락을 염색도 해요.

    Please correct the last sentence. 🙂

  • Dean Paris

    저는 그리스어 할 수있어요 그리고 영어도 할 수있어요.

  • 인영

    지금 일하고 있어요. 저도 한국어 공부고 있어요.

    • Nudge Zack

      I think it would sound better with:
      지금은 일을 하고있어요. 그런데 한국어 공부도 하고있어요.

  • julie

    what about descriptive verbs? how do you say something like “you are pretty too”? just 너도 (if informal)? or 예쁘기도 해요 is correct? i’m so confused ;_;

    • 태한이

      ‘ 너도 예쁘다 ‘ 아닌가 ?

    • Seokjin Jin

      According to the text, it can be different.

      If is like “You are rich and pretty, too”, you can say 당신은 부유하고, “예쁘기도” 해요.

      If is like “That person is pretty and you are pretty, too”, you can say 그 사람은 예뻐요, 그리고 “당신도” 예뻐요.

    • julie

      these are really helpful examples. thank you very much!

  • 제랄딘

    어제 한국어를 공부했어요 그리고 오늘도 공부할거예요.

    저는 강남에서 가기도 해요.

    영어를 공부하고있었어요 그런데 지금은 한국어를 공부기도 하고있어요.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong ^^ 감사합니다 !

    • Nudge Zack

      For your last sentence:
      영어를 공부하고있었어요 그런데 지금은 한국어를 공부기도 하고있어요 => 아까 영어를 공부하고있었어요. 그런데 지금은 한국어를 공부도 하고있어요.

      since for the verb studying 공부 하다 we don’t have to change to noun using the method in this lesson.

  • 태한이

    어제 학교에 갔어요 그런데 오늘도 슈퍼 마켓에서 가기도 해요 .

    내일 피자를 먹기도 할거에요 ?

    • Seokjin Jin

      그런데 오늘도 슈퍼 마켓에서 가기도 해요 .
      > 그런데 오늘도 슈퍼 마켓에 갔어요.

      -기도 해요 ending is often used when you say something you usually do.

      내일 피자를 먹기도 할거에요 ?
      > 내일은 피자를 먹기도 할까요?

  • 알렉사

    in learned that the-기 ending means -ing, and if that is true, when would I use it?

  • Matt

    저는 중국도 공부해요. 내일은 친구하고 공부할거예요

    • JooyeonPark

      Can you write the English translation for the sentence? :0
      Did you mean that “One of my friends studies. And I also study Korean.”? Then, You can say “제 친구 공부해용. 그리고 저도 한국어 공부해요.”

  • Ben Lo

  • Javier

    Hey! Thank you very much! 질문이 있어요. Does this rule applies also for 하다 verbs?

  • khouloud

    저는 한국어를 말하기도 해요. correct?

  • Màgda Gejnevall

    저도 드라마 좋아요 !
    It was the only sentence I could come up with right now haha

  • 잔세에에엣

    케이팦을 촣하해요, 그리고 커피가 마실 때 책이 읽기도 하는 촣하해요.

    I dont think this sentence make any sense, but I was trying to say I like K-pop, and I also like to read books while drinking coffee. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    • arti

      케이팝을 좋아해요. 그리고 커피 마시면서 책을 읽는 것도 좋아해요.

  • Malori Green

  • Jawhara al haddad

    I’m already taking Korean classes in an institute, but I need you guys at the same time. Your lessons helps me to understand better and faster. Thank you for your efforts !

  • haru

    I’m trying to understand the subtle difference here–using the computer example 컴퓨터도 고쳐요. and 컴퓨터를 고치기도 해요. So the first example is like saying “I fix radios and TV. I fix computers too.”–computer is what is being emphasized. The second example is like saying “I buy and sell computers. I also fix computers.”–emphasis on fixing. Is that right? 🙂

    • Bitta


    • haru

      Thank you! 🙂

  • Maria

    저는 내일에 그 영화 보기도 할 거예요.

    i feel like i’m over using particle but i’m not sure… oh well 😀

    • Robin

      무슨 영화 ?

    • Maria

      반지의 제왕. 대박이에요!

    • Ivis Benavides

      You might of leaned this already but I learned somewhere else that you shouldn’t use “에” with the words 오늘, 어제, and 내일 because “에” translates to “in”, “on” or “at,” so I believe your sentence translates to something like: “I’m also going to watch that movie in/on/at tomorrow”

  • Harvey Rivas Potot

    한국어를 잘 되기 위해 저는 TTMIK로 공부하고 드라마를 봐요. 그거만 아니라고 음악을 듣기도 해요.

  • Mary Wu

    저는 집에서 청소도 해요.

  • Mary Wu

    In the workbook for this lesson, there was this sentence: 잠을 자기도 해요 that means “I also sleep.” Could you explain why there needs to be 잠을 in this sentence? I thought 자다, to sleep, is an intransitive verb (doesn’t have an object). 감사합니다!

  • Robin

    저는 쓰기도해요. 😀 <—- 맞죠?

  • 감사합니다

  • Sarah

    You said we don’t have to change -하다 verbs into the – 기 form, but is it possible to do it? Because I have often seen 하다 verbs with 기 at the end. I wonder if this is the noun form of the verb?

  • 안녕하세요. (C’est mon premier message ici! 여기 첫 메시지는 예요!)
    너희 두 짱짱해요 그런데 아주 아름답기도 해요 !
    Is my sentence correct? 🙂

    • Seokjin Jin

      여기 첫 메시지는 예요 > 여기 첫 메세지를 남겨요.

      너희 두 짱짱해요 그런데 아주 아름답기도 해요 > 너희 두 사람은 짱짱이에요! 그리고 아주 아름답기도 해요.

      You meant “you are awesome” through “짱짱”, right?

    • 네! Yes, I meant “you are awesome”. Ok so “짱짱해요” is wrong because I was talking about a state, not an action… 감사합니다! 그리고 “남기다” 동사는 흥미있어요. 🙂

  • اسماء

    You guys said that every verb that ends with anything other than ㅏ,ㅗ is conjugated like this 어요 but what about the verbs that end with ㅣ,ㅡ? Also the verb 놀다 and 잦다 end with a consonant but it’s conjugated to 아요..why? The vowel isn’t in the end??I’m so confused someone answer me please.

    • kathleenirn

      I will try to help you with that question because I also had that same confusion before hehe! (please anyone correct me if I’m wrong).
      For the vowelsㅣand ㅡ I think the same rules apply, they have to be conjugated with 어요 because they are neither ㅏ or ㅗ.
      second question, the verbs 놀다 and 잦다 even though they end with consonants, the vowels that they have are ㅗ andㅏ respectively. therefore they have to be conjugated to 아요.

      Hope this helps! 🙂

    • اسماء

      So every verb that has these two vowels even if they’re not the last letter will be conjugated to 아요 .. Thanks for the explanation:)

    • EXOL-ARMY 꿈

      I think for the conjugation we have to look for the last vowel ^-^

    • اسماء

      I know right? But those examples say something different..idk I’m confused

    • EXOL-ARMY 꿈

      Well I hope for you that our teachers are going to answer you 🙂

      I can try to help if you want me to ^^ Tell me the example you’re confused with 🙂


    Hello !

    저는 스페인어를 배우기도 해요…영어도…아라비아어도… 😉

    [제 오빠가 때리고 싶어요. 한국어를 배우고 싶어요 그렇지만 오빠가 실례하고 있어요 (if it’s correct ^^”)]

    감사합니다 안녕히 계세요 🙂

  • Laura

    저도 고양이를 사랑해요. – I, too, love cats.
    저는 고양이도 사랑해요. – I love cats as well. (Assuming I said I loved something else before.)
    저는 고양이를 사랑도 해요. – Loving cats is also what I do.
    Sorry for the weird examples, cats and love is the first thing that popped into my head! I just want to make sure I have a clear understanding of this concept.


  • Rachele

    저는 음악을 좋아요 그리고 책도 좋아요 (I like music and I also like books)
    음악 좋아요? 저도 음악을 좋아요 (Do you like music? I like music too)
    저는 철학을 공부애요 그리고 물리학을 가르치기도 해요 (I study philosophy and I also teach physics)
    Is it correct? 감사합니다!

  • McKenzie Rodwell
