Download Available

안녕하세요! In addition to the grammar points that we cover one by one in our other lessons, in today’s lesson, we would like to introduce some vocabulary words that can spice up your Korean sentences and help you express your emotions and thought in more detail. We are introducing how to say “very” “a bit” “really” “not really” and “not at all” in this lesson. Listen in to how to say them in Korean and also how written Korean and spoken Korean are different for these expressions.


You can download a free PDF for this lesson here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

      조금 아파지만 괜찮아요! > 조금 아팠지만(past tense) 괜찮아요 or 조금 아프지만 괜찮아요.

      요즘 일 대문에 아주 피곤해요. > 요즘 일 때문에 아주 피곤해요.

    공부는 별로 재미없어요. Is this right?

    저는 정말 나쁘고 있었어요. 지난 주부터 한국어 전혀 공부 안 했어요. 학교 아주 바빴어요. 지금은 조금 시간 있어요. 그래서 한국어 진짜 배우고 싶어요. 하나도 변명을 없어요!

    What I attempted to write above was:
    “I have been really bad. Since last week I have not studied Korean at all. I’ve been really busy with school. I have a little time now. So I really want to learn Korean. I have no excuses!”

    감사합니다 for the lesson!
