      Hi, I think there’s some corrections:
      2) 싣는 싫어요 => 싣는 것은 싫어요
      3) 제 선생님 한테 문자 한게 물었어요 => 제 선생님 한테 문자를 한개 물었어요
      4) 문자가 묻는 좋아요 => 문자 묻는 것이 좋아요 or 문자 묻는 것을 좋아 해요

    • Lindsey

      Hi McKenzie,
      I’d say 매일 아침에 걸어서 수업에 가요.
      If you say 수업 걸어요 it means you walk a class!

  • 楊玉嬿

    안녕하세요! I have a question that before Hangul (諺文) been invented, how Koreans learned the ㄷ/ ㄹ/ ㅂ/ ㅡ/ … irregular? Or Koreans were just used to it without memorizing it? Or, even Koreans, you still need to memorize those irregular and the irregular in irregular? I’m very curiosity if it is for easy pronouncing, why there is irregular in irregular? 감사합니다!

  • 율리아나

    I think there’s a mistake 묻다 can not be “to bury” and “to talk” because they are contradicting themselves according the PDF

    • Lindsey

      묻다 has to different meanings.
      One meaning of 묻다 is ‘to bury’, as in 씨앗를 묻다 (to bury a seed). 씨앗=seed
      Another meaning is ‘to ask’, as in 길을 묻다 (to ask for direction). 길=way, direction
      They are completely different words, only spelled the same..

    • honestlyidk

      oh okay, thank you. i was wondering that as well ^_^

    부모님이 물으면, 이선물을 묻을 거여요.
    If my parent ask (about the present), I will bury it.
    (Because receiving present is illegal in my house)

    • HSK

      부모님이 물어보시면, 이 선물을 묻을 거예요.

    • Ha Lam

      Could you explain why should we use 물어보시면 instead of 물으면? I don’t really understand.

    • HSK

      It’s a difference between 존댓말 and반말.
      you should use 존댓말 to your parents.

    • Ha Lam

      Ah, I see 😀
