TTMIK Level 5 Lesson 30

TTMIK Level 5 Lesson 30 - Sentence Building Drill 5

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
벌써 10시니까, 오늘 가지 말고 내일 가요.
[beol-sseo yeol-si-ni-kka, o-neul ga-ji mal-go nae-il ga-yo.]
= It’s already 10 o’clock, so don’t go today and go tomorrow (instead).

Key sentence #2
제가 이거 도와 주는 대신에, 다음 번에 제가 부탁이 있으면 들어 줘야 돼요.
[je-ga i-geo do-wa ju-neun dae-si-ne, da-eum beo-ne je-ga bu-ta-gi i-sseu-myeon deu-reo jwo-ya dwae-yo.]
= I’m helping you with this one, but in return, you have to help me when I have a favor next time.

Key sentence #3
지금은 다른 사람이 없으니까 저라도 갈 수 밖에 없어요.
[ji-geu-meun da-reun sa-ra-mi eop-seu-ni-kka jeo-ra-do gal su ba-kke eop-seo-yo.]
= There is no one else now so there’s no other way but for me to go there (even though I’m not the best person for it).
