Level 3 Lesson 18 / nothing but, only / 밖에 + 부정형

Download Available

안녕하세요! Welcome to Level 3 Lesson 18! In this lesson, we look at how to say “nothing but” or “only” in Korean. We learned the expression -만 [-man] which means “only” too in a previous lesson, but in this lesson we look at an expression more commonly used to mean “nothing but” in Korean.

Thank you for studying with us, as always, and if you have any questions, feel free to leave us comments!

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.

We have a dialogue prepared in 100% Korean based on all the lessons in Level 3. If you want to check how much you can understand before studying all of the Level 3 lessons, try listening to the dialogue here.

Level 3 Grammar Textbook and Workbook

We’ve made the Level 3 lessons even better and published them as a grammar textbook! The grammar textbook itself is filled with very effective comprehension questions, but you can practice even further with our workbook for Level 3. Both are available now on our online bookstore.

    Can you use 밖에, or 만 for that matter, in conjunction with 위해서? For example:
    공부를 위해서밖에 시간이 없을 것 같아요.
    공부를 위해서만 시간이 있을 것 같아요.

  • jee

    on the last sample sentence, why isn’t there an adjective particle? like 왜 공부’하는’ 밖에 안 해요? is it because 공부 is used as a noun, not an adjective?
