TTMIK Level 6 Lesson 30 - PDF



In this series, we focus on how you can use the grammatical rules and expressions that you have learned so far to train yourself to make more Korean sentences more comfortably and more flexibly.

We will start off with THREE key sentences, and practice changing parts of these sentences so that you don’t end up just memorizing the same three sentences. We want you to be able to be as flexible as possible with the Korean sentences you can make.

Key Sentence #1

= I thought it wouldn’t be so difficult, but it was more difficult than I had thought.

Key Sentence #2
