    Thank you for this lesson. I rolled all the way down to the last comment, just to find out that it was 8 years ago. I hope 비 singer did join the show at some time. Otherwise, it would be really really sad

    Wow TTMIK is helping me so much I tried learning korean via other sites but I couldn’t completely grasp it. If anyone wants to learn Korean together my Kakao ID is Sammy0625

  • Mushahid

    차를 팔거 예요? (will you sell the car?)
    Is the sentence correct?

    • 조슈아

      Almost, you just have some spacing errors. ‘차를 팔 거예요?’ is how it should looks, 거예요 is a separate entity of the conjugated verb in future tense. Hope it helps!

  • Andreea

    I found on other sites -(으)ㄹ거에요. Just the option with the 예 is correct?

    • Chris Hill

      I’m not sure about this. saying ㄹ거에요 Sounds kind of weird to me. I always use 예.

    • Sandra Källgren

      These are the basics, but when the syllable in front of 에/예요 ends with a vowel you will use 예. If it’s followed by a 받침, you will use 에.Since in -(으)ㄹ거예요, the last syllable before 에/예요 ends with a vowel (거), you will use 예 and not 에. It is for easier pronunciation. I hope this helps!

    저는 김치를 살 거예요.

  • Paula Luciana Dumrauf

    Hello! Can someone explain me the last sentence they said “얼마에 팔 거예요?” why is the particle “에” after “얼마” ? Thank you 🙂

    • Raluca Alexandra

      Hello! 얼마 means “How much…” and 에 is a particle that means “at” or “to”. So it becomes ” At what price…”

    I’m going to sleep

    영화 볼 거예요
    I’m going to school
    학교 갈 거예요

  • carls charles

    For ‘내일 갈 거예요’ can you you say ‘나는 내일 갈 거예요’ ??

    • EXOL-ARMY 꿈

      Hi! I think I know the answer for your question ! ^-^

      내일 갈 거예요 is great itself, with the context, it already implies that you are the one going (be careful if you add ? It will seem like a question and then the sentence will have a different meaning ‘Are you going tomorrow?’ Or ‘Will you go tomorrow?’ 🙂

      As for 나는 내일 갈 거예요, it isn’t correct because you’re mixing 2 levels of language 존댓말 and 반말. When you have 요 at the end of conjugation, you’re talking using 존댓말 but 나 is 반말, so you should either use 저는 if you wanna say it in 존댓말 : 저는 내일 갈 거예요 or you should make your whole sentence in 반말 : 나는 (or even 난 to make it shorter) 내일 갈 거야 ^-^

      Voilà ! I hope it helped ! =)))
      Good luck and don’t forget to be careful using 반말 since you cannot use with whoever you want ;);) (you’ll see in level 3 ^-^)

  • Jo-c C.

    With “만나다”, does that mean to meet up with, or more to meet someone for the first time? Or maybe both?
