Fun Fact

Tumblr paired up with Humans of New York to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief.

Today we’re going to learn how to say “A is similar to B” and “A is the same as B”. Lesson 8 is focused on the usage with nouns and lesson 9 is focused on the usage with verbs. 

Lesson 8

To say A is similar to B, you need to us -(이)랑 or -하고. Both of these have been explained in level 2 lesson 4

  • 비슷하다 = to be similar
  • A noun + B Noun + -(이)랑 or -하고 + 비슷하다 = A is similar to B 
  • -(이)랑 is more formal than -하고 

Examples:

  • A랑 비슷해요 = it’s similar to A
  • B하고 비슷해요 = it’s similar to B
  • 도쿄는 서울이랑 비슷해요 = is Tokyo similar to Seoul?
  • 도쿄는 서울하고 비슷해요 = is Tokyo similar to Seoul?

To say A is the same as B, you need to us -(이)랑 or -하고 as well.

  • 같다 = to be the same
  • A noun + -(이)랑 or -하고 + B Noun + 같다 = A is the same as B

Examples:

  • A랑 같아요 = it’s the same as A
  • A하고 B는 같아요 = A and B are the same

If you use 같다 without the -(이)랑 or -하고, it has a different meaning

  1. to be like
  2. to look like
  3. to seem to be

Examples:

  • 거짓말 샅아요 = it seems to be a lie
  • 로봇 같아요 = it looks like a robot

Lesson 9

You could also use 같다 with verbs (so without the -(이)랑 or -하고). In order to do so, you need to change the verbs into nouns. This has been explained in level 2 lesson 19. 

Making verbs into nouns:

  • Present tense: verb stem + 는 것
  • Past tense: verb stem + (으)ㄴ 것
  • Future tense: verb stem + (으)ㄹ 것

Now after this it’s pretty easy again, just add the 같다 like you did with the nouns in lesson 8! 

Examples:

  • 눈이 오다 = to snow (active verb)
  • Present: 눈이 오는 것 같아요 = I think it is snowing
  • Past: 눈이 온 것 같아요 = I think it was snowing
  • Future: 눈이 올 것 같아요 = I think it will snow
  • Keep in mind, the 같아요 does not change according to the tense! The tense is shown with the turning verbs into nouns! 
  • 이상하다 = to be strange (descriptive verb)
  • 이상한 것 샅아요 = I think it is strange

Only one lesson this week due to its length! Today we’ll learn how to link verbs with the use of -아/어/여 서.

Lesson 7

-아/어/여 서 can be used for four reasons

  1. Reason + -아/어/여 서 + result
  2. Action + -아/어/여 서 + another action that takes place after the first action
  3. Action + -아/어/여 서 The purpose of or the plan after the first action
  4. Fixed expressions

Let’s start with reason 1:

  • 오늘은 바빠요 = Today I am busy
  • 영화를 못 봐요 = I can’t see the movie
  • Add them together with the use of -아/어/여 서
  • 오늘은 바빠서 영화를 못 봐요 = Today I am busy, so I cannot see the movie

Reason 2:

  • 공원에 가다 = to go to the park
  • 찻을 읽다 = to read a book
  • Add them together with the use of -아/어/여 서
  • 공원에 가서 찻을 읽을 거여요 = I am going to the park and read a book
  • Note: the future tense 1 has been used here. 

Reason 3:

  • 돈을 모으다 = collected money
  • 뭐 하다 = what do
  • Add them together with the use of -아/어/여 서
  • 돈을 모으서 뭐 할 거여요 = what are you going to do with the saved (collected) money?
  • Note: the future tense 1 has been used here as well.

And the last reason:

  • Some expressions always use -아/어/여 서. 
  • -에 짜라서 = according to
  • -예를 들어서 = for example

That’s it! Study the reasons and the usage well! 화이팅!!

Today we’ll learn how to say approximately/about and we will learn about the second future tense. Lesson 5 is very easy, lesson 6 is medium hard. Make sure you understand the first future tense

Lesson 5

A very short lesson in which we’ll learn how to say approximately/about

  • Option 1: -쯤
  • It’s placed after the noun

Examples:

  • 한시쯤 = around 1 o’clock
  • 한달쯤 = approximately 1 month

There are a few similar expressions:

  • Option 2: 정도
  • Placed after the noun
  • Option 3: 약 
  • Placed before the noun

They can also be used together:

  • 약 noun 쯤
  • 약 noun 전도 

Examples:

  • 한달 전도 
  • 약 한달
  • 약 한달 쯤
  • 약 한달 전도
  • All of the above mean ‘about 1 month’

Lesson 6

Korean has two ways of using the future tense. The first way was explained in level 2 lesson 1. For easier understanding, let’s call that one future tense 1, and the one we’re learning today future tense 2. 

  • Future tense 1 is made by adding -(으)ㄹ 거예요
  • Future tense 2 is made by adding -(으)ㄹ 게요

The difference between 1&2:

  1. is not related to or affected by the reaction of the other person. You were going to do it anyway, regardless of what the person replies.
  2. is related to or affected by the reaction of the other person. You might change your plans according to their response. 

Example:

  1. 공부할 거예요 = I will study (regardless of what you say)
  2. 공부할 게요 = I will study (unless you tell me otherwise)

Future tense 2 can be used for three reasons

  1. To change plans according to what the other person says
  2. Checking or assuming what the other person thinks and seeing their reaction
  3. Deciding to do something because of what the other person said

Today we’ll learn how to use -(으)ㄹ 까요? -(으)ㄹ 까요 is used to show curiosity or uncertainty. The usage depends on the reasoning which makes the lesson pretty long. So only one lesson today, but that’s okay! No need to rush, some slower days are totally fine as well!

Lesson 4

The three reasons as to why you’d use -(으)ㄹ 까요 are:

  1. Showing doubt or questioning yourself
  2. Raising a question and attracting attention
  3. Suggesting to do something together
  • Which one of the three reasonings it is, depends on the context.

Conjugation:

  • Verb ends in a vowel: -ㄹ 까요
  • Verb ends in ㄹ: only add 까요
  • Verb ends in another consonant: -을 까요

Examples:

  • 내일 비사 올까요? = 
  1. I wonder if it’ll rain tomorrow
  2. Do you think it’ll rain tomorrow?
  3. Shall we rain tomorrow = not possible, so this meaning goes out of the window for this sentence.
  • 내일 우리 영화 볼까요? = 
  1. Do you think we will watch a movie tomorrow? = not possible, considering you know if you’re going to watch a movie or not. 
  2. Shall we see a movie tomorrow?
  3. Do you want to see a movie tomorrow?
  • Note: reason 2 and 3 are very similar in this case, they also could be switched since the meaning is the same. 

Using -(으)ㄹ 까요 in the past tense is only possible for reason 1. 

  • Add the suffixes 았/었/였 after the verb stem, then add -을 까요
  • 어제 했을까요? = do you think she did it yesterday?
  • 누가 전화 했을까요? = I wonder who called?

Good job today!! See you for the next lesson!
