    I like the video and the sentences, very nice! 감사합니다. I just have a couple grammar-related questions:

    1. What’s the difference between -고 있다 and -아/어 있다? Can I say “배가 한 척 뜨고 있어요”? I know you have lesson 7×24 but that is about passive verbs and neither 끼다, nor 뜨다 are passive.

    2. Why is it “섬이 하나” and not “섬이 한 개” or something like that with a counter? Is it just a special word that never uses counters?

  • This is great! Lots of vocabulary words, lots of grammar points, lots of information packed in just a few minutes. Please make more of these! 🙂
