    안녕하세요! :D
    선생님들 너무 감사함이다!
    Your lessons are really great!

    I have a question.
    Could you use -는 것 instead of -기? like 먹는 것 전에? Or is it just more common to use -기 in this case?

    And I have some sentences:
    학교에 가기 전에 아침식사 하세요. – Eat breakfast before you go to school.
    치구를 만나기 전에 공부해야 돼요. – Before I meet a friend I have to study.
    Pleas correct them if they are wrong. :)
