Welcome to Level 5!!! In the first lesson of Level 5, we are going to look at how to say that you “almost did” something or “nearly did” something. This is used both in situations where you “wanted” to do something (but only almost did it) and in situations where you “didn’t want” to do something and fortunately didn’t do it but almost did it. Listen in to find out how to use this “-(으)ㄹ 뻔 했다” ending in natural context and be sure to practice with us by leaving us comments! Thank you!!

    “어제 밤에 그 남자를 만날뻐했는데 제가 너무 창피했서 못 만났어요
    I almost met that guy last night, but iI didn’t because I was too embarassed to do so.”

    Is it correct ?
    Thank you as always =)
