    안녕하세요!

    저 강아지가 귀여워 졌어요. (My puppy has become cuter.)

    곧 시끄러워 질 거예요. (It will become noisy soon.)

    머리카락 길 졌어요. (Her hair has become longer.)

    한국어로 많이 말할 수록 한국어가 좋아 질거예요. (The more you speak in Korean, your Korean will become better.)

    빅뱅이 몰를 리가 없어요. 지금 너무 인기있어 졌어요. (It’s impossible that you don’t know Big Bang. They have become so famous now.)

    엄마한테 말하면 안 돼요. 지금 더 복잡해 졌어요. (You shouldn’t tell mum. Now it has become more complicated.)

    여기에 먹어 볼까요? 먹을 것이 더 맛있어 졌 같아요. (Shall we try eating here? I think the food has become more delicious.)

    감사합니다! 🙂

    I was reading the pdf examples and noticed that most of them were in the past tense form -졌어요. My questions is does -지다 have a present tense form? Like so, -져요? Thanks.

    • Seokjin Jin

      You can say 운동이 더 어려워지고 있어요.

      운동가 더 어렵졌어요. > 운동이 더 어려워졌어요.

    • Leni

      아 감사합니다! Can you please explain why its 지고 있어요 after the present tense 어려워 and not 어려워져? The sample sentences for this lesson were almost all past tense…and there aren’t any in present tense so I’m not sure how to conjugate it in the present tense… ^^;

      She says ‘벌써요?’

      벌써= Already

    • Thank you! Sometimes Kyeongeun speaks really quickly, that I can’t recognize the words she says even though I already know and use those words ^_^; I guess it’s part of learning the Korean language.
