Level 3 Lesson 14 / Making adjectives / action verbs + -는/(으)ㄴ/(으)ㄹ + 명사

Download Available

안녕하세요 ^^! We are back with another lesson on making adjectives out of verbs in Korean. And today, we are looking at how to change action verbs into adjectives. Basically when you add the suffix -는 after a verb stem, it becomes an adjective that can modify a noun. Listen in to find out more about it, and be sure to check out the PDF as well!



Thank you! 감사합니다 ^_^

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.

    Hi, Please reply to this. I am so confused.

    In level 3 Lesson 11 “ㅂ” irregular. You guys said that

    “Remember that these verbs have irregular forms ONLY WHEN the suffix coming after them
    start with a VOWEL. So if you have suffixes like -는 or -고, they still keep the ㅂ.

    But the suffix ㄴwhich follows 어렵다 is not a vowel. So why didnt the verb keep the ㅂ?

    Please please please reply.

      Once again, 석진 씨, 삼사합니다! It was a typo… It’s quite difficult for me to type with Korean keyboard, still trying to get familiar with it… :-)
