    저는 노래를 잘 해요. 전 다 음식 좋아해요 그리고 매운 거 잘 먹어요.

  • Ntshikeng Giggler Matooane

    저는 한국어 쓰기를 잘 못했어요 그런데 한국어 읽기를 잘 해요. 저는 그거 할 수 있어요.

    Hope that was correct ☺
    감사합니다, TTMIK 선생님들!!!!

  • Emily Norwood

    매은 것 먹을 수 있어요, 그런데 많이 안 좋아해요. The more I eat spicy food, the more l like it, though! ^.^

  • Mercy Cheng

    저는 운동을 정말 잘 못 해요 그래서 달리기도 수영도 할 수 없어요
    sad example, hope it’s correct.
    by the way, if I say 저는 운동을 하나도 잘 못해요, does it work to emphasize “not good at all” ?

    • Seokjin Jin

      You wrote the sentences well and you can use them, too.

      For the last sentence, we normally say “저는 할 줄 아는 운동이 하나도 없어요.”

  • Jan

    How does one say, “Yesterday, I ran well” ?
    어제 달리기를 잘 할거에요.
    or
    어제 잘 다릴거에요.

    • KyungHwa Sun

      Hello Jan,

      You can say either 어제 잘 달렸어요 or 어제 달리기를 잘했어요. ^^

    • Jan

      Oops, looks like I used future tense when it should have been past tense! 감사합니다, 선생님 !
