Level 3 Lesson 19 / after -ing / 다음에

Download Available

안녕하세요! Welcome back to TTMIK! In this lesson, we introduce how to say “after -ing” or “after you do something” in Korean. In order to say this, you need to use the structure -(으)ㄴ 다음에, -(으)ㄴ 후에, or -(으)ㄴ 뒤에. Find out how to use these expressions in natural context and and listen to more sample sentences by listening to the audio lesson. Be sure to check the PDF available in the side bar of the lesson post as well!

Thank you for studying with us!


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.

  • 엡아언니 ~Eva~

    So if I want to change this into past or future it will be like this?
    Past: 공부하는 다음에 잤어요 After studying I slept
    Future: 공부할 다음에 잘 거예요 After I will study I will sleep (?)

    I’m not sure if the future sentence makes any sense. Would you say it like that when you talk about a far future?

      자동차 means automobile but in spoken language you drop the first two syllables:
      so car means 차

      also it´s not세로은 but 새로운 as the infinitve has a ㅂ as last consonant.

      hope i helped 🙂

      Hey. If we were to strictly use the structure as presented by the lesson, we would need a verb stem + (은)ㄴ.

      한국어 레손을 들은 다음에 밥을 먹을 거예요.

      학교 끝난 다음에 친구랑 만날 거예요. 그 다음에 집에 가서 잘 거예요.
