    Can someone please tell me what 잠을 is doing in the sentence “바쁠수록 잠을 많이 자야 돼요.”?

    I understand that it is related to sleep, but isn’t 자다 to sleep and wouldn’t 많이 자야 돼요 mean you need to sleep a lot? If I were asked to say this phrase I would probably say “바쁠수록 많이 자야 돼요.” I don’t know if that is fine but just less common of if it is completely wrong.

    This has come up a few times in these lessons and I never know when it should be used and when you can go without it and what its purpose is.

    • yeah and adding 이 too before the ㄹ they never explained that 🙁

      잠 is the noun form of sleep which we normally learn as 자다. so when they use 잠을 자다, so it’s just a way of writing to sleep. But in my opinion by having 잠을, it sounds a little more accurate but I don’t think it’s wrong either~

  • i think i’ll change my way of studying because when i finish a lvl i never understand the dialogue the first lvl was easy i understand like 99% and 1% was due to the new words but the other lvls nope it’s like 30% </3 they are so fast eating so many words
