안녕하세요! Welcome to the very first Sentence Building Drill (문장 만들기 연습) lesson! In this series, we will look at how you can expand your Korean sentence building skills by adding or replacing certain words in given sentences. All the “key” sentences that are used in these lessons are composed of grammar points that have previously been introduced through our lessons. This series will be a good opportunity for you to review what you have learned in the past and also to learn some new vocabulary! Have fun studying!

    I’ve got a question~~~
    아마 내일부터 일요일까지 비가 내릴 거예요.
    In this sentence, does 아마 has to be put in the beginning ?
    Or is it okay to say in this way: 내일부터 일요일까지 아마 비가 내릴 거예요.
    Thank you for answering~~~Love y’all~~

    안녕하세요.  저는 엘라 입니다. 저는 루마니아 사람 입니다. 

    선생님들, 인사해도돼요? TTMIK 로 한국어 많이 공부했어요. 너무 감사합니다. These days I’m studying korean through a Korean Cultural Center that opened in Romania two months ago, and I’m very happy to use everything that you taught me. Oh, and I find Sentence Buliding Drill very interesting, thank you!

    • 안녕하세요 엘라!
      We are so pleased to know that you study Korean with us! I hope you will develop your Korean a lot!
      Thanks for your comment. 🙂

  • Ahuva

    Hello, Thank you for this lesson. A sentence building drill is very helpful and a great way to practice making sentences. I have a question please. In the audio lesson they gave an example: The end of the month=월말 and then, This month= 이번 달에 . why did they use two different words to say: month (월/ 달)? How can I know which one to use when?
    Thank you for your help. 🙂

    • Hi Ahuva,

      As we have used Chinese words for a long time, many words still remained as a Chinese word and the spelling is changed to Hangeul.
      월 is a sino-korean letter which means month.
      Well, it is hard to say which one is used when, but it will be better to try to use them and get used to it.
      Thanks for your comment.

  • Ahuva

    Regarding 올 and 내릴 when talking about rain/snow,
    Can I use:
    비가 많이 올 거예요 = it is going to rain a lot
    눈이 많이 올 거예요 = it is going to snow a lot

    instead of :
    비가 많이 내릴 거예요 = it is going to rain a lot
    눈이 많이 내릴 거예요 = it is going to snow a lot
    Thank you

    • Hi Ahuva,

      When it comes to 비 and 눈, you use the both expressions.
      비가 많이 올 거예요. 비가 많이 내릴 거예요. – Good!
      눈이 많이 올 거예요. 눈이 많이 내릴 거예요. – Good!

      Thanks for your comment.

  • -이천십이년 십월에 한국어를 공부하고 시작했어요. – I started studying Korean in october 2012.

    -설마 오늘부터 금요일까지 눈이 안 올 거예요. – It will surely not snow from today till friday.
    -How should 안 올 거예요 be like in the form of 지 않아요?

    -모레 저한테 십 분 있으면, 혼자 제 아파트에 와주세요. – If you have ten minutes for me the day after tomorrow, please come to my apartment alone.

  • Elaine Peong

    Hi, can you please explain these two phrases below in more details please?

    어 어쩌면 비가 내릴지도 몰라요 = maybe it might rain
    어 어쩌면 비가 내릴 수도 있어요 = maybe it could rain
    I understand the part where 어쩌면 comes from 어떻게하면, but what I fail to understand is the ending of the phrases of
    지도 몰라요 and 수도 있어요.

    Can someone please explain in more details as this was not explained in the podcast?

  • Ola

    This lesson was so useful, I’ve been struggling for ages with constructing actual sentences and this series is such a great idea! 🙂
