    Thank you for teaching us korean expressions, I’m very grateful for all of your lessons, and videos. ^-^
    Moreover I have a question, does 잠수해요 work ? Like 아이고, 진짜 돌겠네, 학교 때문에 잠수해요 ! i.e submerged by homeworks, I don’t know how to introduce the “homework part” in my sentence. Can you tell me if my sentence is alright ?

    감사합니다 🙂
