Level 3 Lesson 25 / verb ending / -네요

You’ve probably heard this sentence ending a lot so far, in TV shows, movies, songs, etc. The sentence ending that we are looking at in this lesson is “-네요”. It is sometimes used in the exact same context as the plain sentence endings and therefore hard to tell the nuance. But not any longer if you listen to this lesson 🙂

    최근에 오빠가 똥똥한 졌지만 아직 정말 빨리 달릴 수 있네요 (My brother has gained weight recently but he still can run really fast)

    내가 그 남자를 처음 봤을 때 ‘바보 같아 보여’라고 생각했지만 내가 틀렸네요 (When I first met him, I thought he looked stupid, but I was wrong)

    이 책과 그 책은 지루하네요 (This book and that one are boring)
