    How do you say: “You have to learn to cooperate wth others.”

    There are a lot of words for “cooperate” in the E-K dictionary. Which one is suitable when talking about human relations (as opposed to joint projects between governments, companies, organizations, etc.)?

    I know this is totally off-topic, but I wrote some sentence, and I would be grateful if somebody could check how many mistakes I’ve made 😀

    하루 종일 드라마를 보는 것은 다음에, 제가 한국어를 쓸 수 밖에 없어요.
    I wanted it to mean something like: After watching dramas all day, I have no other choice, but to speak korean.
    사전에 감사합니다! 😀

  • Ana
