    • Ivis Benavides

      Should it not be “그러면 집에 있을 것 같아요”? Since it it is expressing a future action? Also, I think the present tense noun form of 있다 would be 있는 not 있은 since the present tense noun form of words like 재미있다 would be 재미있는. I might be wrong though.

    • Trinity

      Ah yes, you’re right! Thanks so much for correcting me! ^_^ 감사합니다!!

    가: 너무 배고파요. ㅜㅜㅜㅜ

    Idk, but I’m not sure if the second one is correct. I’m trying to say “Then, why don’t you eat?”

  • 조슈아

    아버지: 안녕하세요! 엄마, 돈 주세요.
    할머니: 몇 살이에요?
    아버지: 42 살이에요.
    할머니: 일해요?
    아버지: 네.
    할머니: 그런 왜 돈이 없어요?
    어머니: 그는 맥주 너무 좋아요.
    아버지: … 왜그래?

    Dad: Hello! Mom, would you please give me some money?
    Grandma: How old are you?
    Dad: I am 42 years old.
    Grandma: Do you work?
    Dad: Yeah.
    Grandma: Then why don’t you have money.
    Mom: He likes beer too much.
    Dad:…. why are you like this?

    I guess the only sentence in there that relates to this lesson is: ‘그런 왜 돈이 없어요?’
    I got a little carried away I guess 😛
    Corrections are welcome
    고마워요.
