    how to you say in Korean… ” It’s so hot, as soon as I get into the car, I get branded like cattle.”

  • Samier

    좋은 레슨 ^^

    1. “어딜 앉아세요? 붐비이에요”


  • i got questions about the sample sentences introduced in the pdf.

    1. 이걸 누구한테 줘야 돼요?
    can i write like this instead, 이걸 누구한테 줄까요?

    2. 여길 어떻게 알았어요?
    can i write like this instead, 이거가 어떻게 알았어요?

    • Miss Orson

      1. Perfectly fine.
      2. No. 여기 is refered to mean only places or direction. 이거 is for referring objects such as desk, books, etc.
      If you want to use 이거, you can say 이거를 (이걸) 어떻게 알았어요?

  • Claira


    절 어떻게 찾았어요? (How did you find me?)

    절 전화해야 돼요. (I am the one you should call.)

    이걸 어떡해요? (What to do with this?)

    여길 언제 왔어요? (When did you come here?)

    감사합니다! 🙂

  • Winnie Zambo

    시간 지나갈수록 이 영화가 덜 재미있어지고 있어

  • Francesco Colléter

    “뭘봐요? 난 사진을 짚다 ?” 아기가 의전에 말엤어요.

    “What are you looking at? You want a picture of me?” kids used to say before.

  • Asha

    절 뭐가 해야돼요 ? What should I do
    이걸 진짜 좋아요 🙂 I really like this
    여길 너무 조용해요 here its so quiet

  • TinaMusicFairy

    In example 5 I don’t get why we are using 어디 as an object in the first place, please could you clarify that?

    • 현미

      Old comment, but if anyone else is wondering this:
      어딜 (where) 눌(press)러야 돼요 (should)?
      “I” is the subject, which is implied. “어디” is the object because it is the object you are pressing. Replace 어디 with
      “버튼(button)” and they both makes sense as objects.
      버튼을 놀러야 돼요? = Should I press the button?

  • Matt

    뭘 하고 싶어요? = What do you want to do?
    어딜 가고 있어요? = Where are you going?
    아무나 절 도와 주세요? = Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks for the lesson.

  • 야신

    더 똑똑해졌어요, 요즘 뭘 공부해요? (You got smarter, what are you studying nowadays?).

    제가 이걸 팔고 싶으니까 많이 돈을 받을 거예요. (I want to sell this, so I will receive a lot of money).

  • 고맙습니다

  • 乔桑宁

    뭘 할까요?

  • Imogen Eve Blair

    뭘 먹을까요 ? = what shall we eat?
    절 도와 줄 수 있어요? = Can you help me?
    제가 그걸 먹으려고 했다고 말하고 있어요. = I’m saying that I was about to eat that .

  • Yuki

    이제 나는 어떻게 해야 하지?
    고객님 뭘 마실까요? 커피 마실래요 아니면 주스 마실래요?
    그 여자가 저러면 절 그녀를 도와 주지 않을 거예요
    이걸 사면 안돼요 너무 비싸고 넌 돈을 많지 않아
    난 오빠의 컴퓨터를 고장 거 같아요 어… 어떡해? 어떡하지?

  • Dae

    1. 여기 절 어떻게 찾았어요? – How did you find me here?
    2. 요즘에 뭘 하고 있어요? – What are you doing these days?
