    갈수록 바뻐요. 그래도 한국어 공부해야 돼요.
    As time goes on I am getting busier. Nevertheless, I must study Korean.

    네가 나이가 많을수록 예뻐요.
    The older you get, the more beautiful you become.

    • 찬하늘

      1st sentence seems correct, with a minor misspelling. 바빠요*

      2nd, I would make this correction to:

      네(니)가 나이가 많을수록 예뻐져요.

      예쁘다 – to be pretty
      예뻐지다 – to become pretty

      To become [an adjective], you drop the verb stem, add 아/어/여/ 지다
