    좋은 레슨 ^^

  • i got questions about the sample sentences introduced in the pdf.

    1. 이걸 누구한테 줘야 돼요?
    can i write like this instead, 이걸 누구한테 줄까요?

    2. 여길 어떻게 알았어요?
    can i write like this instead, 이거가 어떻게 알았어요?

      1. Perfectly fine.
      2. No. 여기 is refered to mean only places or direction. 이거 is for referring objects such as desk, books, etc.
      If you want to use 이거, you can say 이거를 (이걸) 어떻게 알았어요?

  • Claira


    절 어떻게 찾았어요? (How did you find me?)

    절 전화해야 돼요. (I am the one you should call.)

    이걸 어떡해요? (What to do with this?)

    여길 언제 왔어요? (When did you come here?)

    감사합니다! 🙂

    “뭘봐요? 난 사진을 짚다 ?” 아기가 의전에 말엤어요.

    “What are you looking at? You want a picture of me?” kids used to say before.

  • Asha

    절 뭐가 해야돼요 ? What should I do
    이걸 진짜 좋아요 🙂 I really like this
    여길 너무 조용해요 here its so quiet

  • TinaMusicFairy

    In example 5 I don’t get why we are using 어디 as an object in the first place, please could you clarify that?

  • Matt

    뭘 하고 싶어요? = What do you want to do?
    어딜 가고 있어요? = Where are you going?
    아무나 절 도와 주세요? = Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks for the lesson.
