안녕하세요. What are something that you can do and you can’t do? Which of those things would you like to be able to say that you can or can’t do in Korean? In this lesson we are introducing how to say “can” and “cannot” in Korean. Listen in and let us know in the comment what you can do and what you can’t do – well, preferably in Korean! We will be waiting for your comments! 감사합니다.

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.

    Can anyone tell me what does this mean?:
    한국 말 수있어요?

    I think it means “Do you speak Korean?” or something?(:

    If you know so, then please do reply(: Much appreciated and 잠사함니다 ^^

      “한국말” is korean language, and if you listened to this lesson you should know what “수있어요” means ^.^

    영어만 말할수있어요…. 그러지만 한국어 말하고십아요!
    “I can only speak English… But I want to speak Korean!

    잘수없어요, 그레서 한극말 배울거예요!
    “I can’t sleep… So I will study Korean!”

    I hope these sentences are correct, 감사합니다!!!
