    한국어 공부를 언제 시작하실래요? 🙂
    지금부터 같이 공부해요. 어때요?:) 🙂

  • Kendra Sintim-Aboagye

    이번 렛선에, “5. -(ㅇ)실래요? [polite/formal]”를 썼는데, “5. -(으)*실래요? [polite/formal]” 안그래요?
    항상 고맙습니당~ ^^

    • Seokjin Jin

      Ah… Yes. -(으)실래요 is right. ^^

    • Kendra Sintim-Aboagye

      와, 진석진 쌤이다! 헬로! ㅎㅎ 예 선생님! 알겠습니다. ㅅㅡㅅ

  • Wen Barker

    Hi – Just discovered your website and I’m really enjoying these lessons. But I think this lesson may be a bit misleading. Many of the endings you describe here seem to me to mean something more akin to “Shall we…?” or “Would you like to…?” I think “Let’s…” is closer to -ja or -bshida (sorry, no Hangeul keyboard on this computer. Anyhow, am I right about this?

    • Odette C.

      Well there were only 2 out of the 5 endings that ended with questions, and they were both polite endings. If you were trying to be polite, you wouldn’t really just say “Let’s” which isn’t letting the other person have a say in what is being done.

  • Vinnu

    Thank you for the lesson!

  • John Roseberry

    장모님, 같이 자두들 먹을래요?

    Mother-in-law, shall we eat plums together?


    I try to not to be too formal or two familiar with my mother-in-law. Is this too informal?

    • Seokjin Jin

      Yes, I think it sounds little bit informal. I would say 장모니, 같이 자두 드실래요?

    • John Roseberry


      You might have just saved me from an embarrassing moment.

    • Eric Victor

      선생님 “드실래” 는 뭐에요?

    • Mary

      hi 🙂
      can i ask what’s verb stem for this verb? :
      and, what dose mean it?

    “배고파요, 저 사람과 같이 먹을까요? 어때요?”

    I’m studying Korean, too. Let’s study together.

    • Nawal

      for the second sample sentence the verb is 공부하다 without a space between 공부 and 하다 so the right spelling is “저도 한국어 공부하고 있어요. 같이 공부해요.” 😉

  • 산티아고

    저도 한국어 공부해요. 같이 공부해요!.
    I am studying Korean too. Let’s study together.

      Just to help you :):
