Level 2 Lesson 19 / Making verbs into nouns / -는 것

Download Available

​In this lesson, we are going to learn about a grammatical structure that will come in handy when you want to expand your sentences and make longer and more accurate phrases in Korean. In Korean when you link phrases with other phrases, you often make one phrase into a noun form and have it included in a bigger phrase. In order to do that, we are going to look at how to make verbs into nouns in this lesson. Listen in and pay close attention to what 현우 and 경은 introduce, and be sure to give it a try and make your own sample sentences! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

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 someone please tell me that during using sentences like “I do,I like…”…i.e. which tell about us,when is 제 used and when is 저 used(signifying I).

    • Seokjin Jin

      Because 제 and 저 mean “I”, you should use “저희” when you want say “us” in Korean. After 제, you can add the particle “가”, and after 저, you can add the particle 는.

    • Chhavi

      감사함니다…..But just for my understanding,저 is used when we/I am the topic of conversation or when I’m talking about myself. While 제 is used when I’m telling that this is something I like or I do…..Right??

  • Kristina Kyulper
