안녕하세요!! In this lesson, we are looking at how to use the structure “-(으)려나 보다”. It is a way of expressing your assumption about a future action that you “assume” someone is going to take or something that you “assume” will happen. Are you ready? Have fun!



You can view a free PDF for this lesson here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

    hey guys

    I think you put up the wrong lesson. This is a different lesson on 지마세요. It doesn’t seem to match with the PDF
    :)

    선생님들, 제가 질문 있어요.^^
    What is the difference between the following two sentences?
    ” 비가 오려고나 봐요.” and ” 비가 오나 봐요. ”
    Both means ” It’s about to rain. “, right? Or mean differently?
    선생님들이 가르쳐주세요.
    감사합니다! ^^

      “비가 오나 봐요.” – I guess it’s raining. (present tense)
      “비가 오려고나 봐요.” – I guess it’s about to rain. (future tense)

    • http://twitter.com/siesta87 Hyojin An

      “비가 오나 봐요.” – I guess it’s raining now.
      “비가 오려나 봐요.” – I guess it’s about to rain.

      오다 + (으)려나 봐요 = 오려나 봐요. :)

      Oops! Typo! Yeah, listen to Hyojin. :P

      Will Fuller 하고 효진 선생님이 설명해주셔서 감사합니다. ^^

      즐거운 하루 보내세요.

      ” 비가 오려나 봐요.”

      This sentence means that it seems to rain (in the near future) but it doesn’t rain now.

      “비가 오나 봐요.”

      However this sentence means that it rains. Well, we may say it when you see the falling rain drops.

    Greetings from Portugal! ^_^”

    First of all, congratulations to the TTMIK team, for all your hard work. Found out your website yesterday and been reading/ listening to some of your lessons, since then.

    Can you please tell me how many lessons will have Level 5?

    Kyeong-eun Choi, as I red, you’re taking Spanish lessons (or at least you were, don’t know if you gave up :)), Portuguese’s not that different. So if you ever want to learn Portuguese, I can give you some tips also.

    Have TTMIK ever think in expand to other countries, for example “Talk to Me in Japanese/ Chinese”. I think this teaching method has a good learning curve, by doing in another countries, you could build a nice language learning platform.

    Best Regards!

    • Adel Zaidi

      It would be amazing to have aTalk to me in Japanese, because the “vj,dj” is so fluent in japanese, and i’m learning both languages, but i haven’t found any resource like TTMIK for japanese.

    • Seokjin Jin

      Thanks for your idea! Yeah, I hope that we will make more educational site for other languages in the near future. :)

    • Adel Zaidi

      You’re welcome i really love the way you teach, i wanna learn more languages thanks to that, i need a Talk to me in Japanese, and a Talk to me in Mandarin.
      And good luck for the rest.

  • 루트라키

    정말 감사드리는데 저의 생각에는 레벨 4하고 5 의 레슨에서 영어를 너무 많이 쓰고 있는 것 같습니다. 이 단계에서는 한국어만 쓰시면 좋겠다고 생각합니다. ^___^ 만약에 모르는 단어나 표현이 있으면 PDF으로 찾아보면 되지 않습니까?

  • sun

    Just a question about the first sample sentence:
    what does that “문을” mean?

    and thank you for your awesome work!

    “그 사람들은 이 방을 사용하려나 봐요.” (“It looks like they’re going to be using this room”)
    대학교의 컴퓨터 실험실들에서 이 문장을 많이 사용해요.

    Thanks for another lesson.
