Emphasize your point with “-다고요”

If you’ve ever heard someone saying -다고요 at the end of their sentences, here’s what it means!

-(ㄴ/는)다고요 and -(이)라고요 are used when you want to emphasize something that someone or you have said. The basic purpose of this ending is to “quote” or “cite” someone as saying something, but it can be used to repeat and stress what has been said before as well.
