Level 3 Lesson 20 / even if, even though / -아/어/여도

In this lesson, we are going to learn how to combine two sentences and say “even if” or “even though” using -아도, -어도, or -여도. These verb endings are similar to the conjunction 그래도 in meaning, by using these endings, you can make compound sentences.

Listen in to check out sample sentences as well, and if you have any questions, please feel free to leave us comments! 감사합니다.

    매일 하루에 4시쯤 한국어를 고부하고 있어도 아직 너무 어렵은 것 같아요. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
    – Even though I am studying Korean for about 4 hours a day, it still seems to be so hard. 🙁

    This was also my practice sentence with the 그래도 lesson. 아, 이 레썬이 너무 유익해요!! 감사합니당!!

      Wait!!! I made the same mistake, wtf. It should be, “매일 하루에 4시쯤 한국어를 고부하고 있어도 아직 너무 어려운 것 같아요.”
