안녕하세요. Welcome to the last lesson in Level 2!!! You’re amazing for having made it so far and keeping up with us! Hope you will continue enjoying learning with us in the future! In this lesson, we are introducing how to tell someone to stop doing something or not to do something. Listen in and find out how to say that, and make sure you practice with us through comments!



Thank you!

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.

    I’m so happy to have reached the end of level 2! Thank you both for the amazing lessons so far!

    I think i’ve heard people say “가지 마” or something similar on it’s own, without the polite ending. Is this correct to say too, if we’re just with friends?

    At 5:34 did Kyungeun say “Everyone, don’t laugh at Hyunwoo’s jokes?”

    • Samala

      Yep. She most certainly did.

    Hello! I have a question… How can I properly pronounce “ㅡ” or “eu” like from the word 고르다??? :)))))))

  • Jham

    And a follow up question… How about in the words “내” and “네” how can i know the difference of each sound? Please help me… Sorry if I have lots of question… :)

  • Vergil

    this might be a really stupid question but can you say: -지 마주세요? or would you add 주세요 after the 마세요?
    감사합니다!

  • 타얄리

    Can someone help me please???
    I thought that 마세요 is the present form of 말다 together with the Honorative Suffix 시, together 말시다 as a verb. But I can not find that anywhere… Is it wrong?

    • Seokjin Jin

      말시다 is a wrong expression. :)
