Level 4 Lesson 21 / Spacing Part 2 / 띄어쓰기


In a previous lesson, we looked at how spacing works in Korean. In this lesson, we are going to look at some examples of expressions that can mean two different things depending on whether they have spacing in the middle or not. Listen in to find out what those expressions are and be sure to practice with us by making sample sentences on your own!
