Level 3 Lesson 4 / shall we…? + I wonder… / -(으)ㄹ까요?

안녕하세요! Welcome back to another lesson at TalkToMeInKorean.com! We are having a look at something a little unique to the Korean language, which means that if you understand and know how to use this sentence ending, you can expand your Korean skills by a lot!!!

In Korean, when you want to say “Shall we do + something?” and when you want to say “I wonder if …”, you use the same sentence ending, which is -(으)ㄹ까요?

Listen in to find out how to use this ending, -(으)ㄹ까요?, in natural context, and as usual, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask us in the comment or e-mail us!

You can download both the PDF lesson notes and the MP3 audio track for this lesson below, and if you want to learn with our various textbooks and workbooks, you can get them on our online bookstore at MyKoreanStore.com. If you have any questions about this lesson, please leave us comments below!

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.

      볼까요 is when you’re inviting or asking if you should see something or look at something. 볼거예요 on the other hand is the future tense of 보다. present=봐요 past=봤어요 future=볼거예요
