Welcome to Level 3, everyone! And congratulations on finishing Level 1 and Level 2. In this lesson, we are introducing an expression that is very commonly used, and in two opposite meanings, too. The expression is 너무 [neo-mu] and it can be used to mean both “very” in positive sentences and “too much” in negative sentences. Listen in to learn more about how it is used!

      너무 비싸예 < This is in dialect form. :)

      In standard form, it should be “너무 비싸요”.
