안녕하세요! This is the Sentence Building Drill (문장 만들기 연습) lesson! In this series, we will look at how you can expand your Korean sentence building skills by adding or replacing certain words in given sentences. All the “key” sentences that are used in these lessons are composed of grammar points that have previously been introduced through our lessons. This series will be a good opportunity for you to review what you have learned in the past and also to learn some new vocabulary! Have fun studying! Read more
Are you ready for another TTMIK lesson?! In this lesson, we will be looking at the verb ending -도록.

In Level 6 Lesson 15, we looked at the structure -(이)라는 것, which can be used to express what you think is the definition or the nature of something. You can do the same with verbs, except with a slightly different structure. Be sure to check out all the sample sentences and practice by making your own sentences in the comment! Read more
Do you know how to say “As long as” in Korean? Learn how you can say this with various Korean expressions (-기만 하면, -(느)ㄴ 한, and -지만 않으면) and make your own Korean sentences!
In this TTMIK lesson, we will introduce the verb ending -(으/느)ㄴ 데다가. By adding this ending to a verb stem, you will be able to say “In addition to -verb-…” or “On top of -verb-…”, allowing you to construct sentences such as “In addition to being smart, Kyunghwa is also really pretty” or “Hyunwoo is an author on top of being a business owner also”. With this verb ending, the possibilities are endless and your Korean sentences will sound much more fluent. Thanks for studying with us! Read more
In the previous lesson (Level 7 Lesson 24), we looked at how you can combine the Passive Voice form with -어 있다 to express a “resultant state”. In this lesson, we are looking at a similar, yet fixed, structure using the verb 되다. Come join us as we discuss how to use this structure to make your Korean sound more fluent and natural! Read more
In a previous lesson, we looked at how passive voice works in Korean. In this lesson, we are taking a look at the structure -어 있다. You can use structure with passive voice to say that something has been put into a certain state and stays that way. Come join us as we discuss how to use this structure to make your Korean sound more fluent and natural!
안녕하세요! In this TTMIK lesson, we will take a look at how to say “no matter whether” someone does something or not in Korean with the ending -(으)나마나 [-(eu)na-ma-da]. This is very similar to what we studied in Level 7 Lesson 7 (아/어/여 봤자), but the endings have quite a difference in nuance. Join us for this lesson to learn more!
안녕하세요! In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words that are based on Chinese characters, but many of them are. In this World Builder lesson, we will be looking at how 정 (定) is used in Korean vocabulary.
As in our previous lessons, we will be going over how to make “reported speech” sentences. In this lesson, you can add a little more ‘oomph’ to your Korean reported speech by studying how to use -(ㄴ/는)다잖아요/-라잖아요. By learning to use this phrase, you’ll be combining the things you learned in Level 5 Lesson 27 with some of the things you learned in our 4 more recent lessons. We hope you enjoy this lesson, and thanks for studying with us! 감사합니다!
