Level 8 Lesson 6 / it means … / -(ㄴ/는)다는 뜻이에요


안녕하세요! In Level 6 Lesson 12, we introduced how to say “What do you mean?” or “What does that mean?” In this lesson, we are taking a look at how to respond to these questions and form sentences to say “it means …” in Korean. The key word you need to know for this is 뜻, the Korean word for “meaning”. Thanks for continuing to study with us here at TTMIK! We love you! 😀
