So today is different! It’s a Phrase of the Day!! I’m super excited about this because I have been wanting to do these for a while and now I’m thinking about introducing this as a new weekly series on Mondays. (We shall see!)
I listen to podcasts at work now. Kinda helps keep me on track with my Korean since I don’t have as much time to devote to practicing as I used to. But one of the things that helps is when they give phrases along with words that are “everyday useful” as I call them. We’ve talked about future tense before so this may be more of refresher for some of you.
언제 갈 거예요? (eonje gal geoyeyo?) | “When are you going?”
(이거) 언제 할 거예요? (“igeo” eonje hal geoyeyo?) | “When are you doing this?”
Ok so let’s break these down.
언제 (eonje) | “when”
From the verb, 가다 (gada) = 갈 거예요 (gal geoyeyo) | “going” [future tense]
From the verb, 하다 (hada) = 할 거예요? (hal geoyeyo)| “doing” [future tense]
Pretty simple.I’m not going to go too deeply into this as this is a Grammar post, but if you want to learn more about Present, Past, and Future tense in Korean, click the link here for part 1 of the 3 part series! (or to skip just to future tense, click here.)
