여행하다 (yeohaenghada) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

| Message from 23rd Station |

So last week was extremely busy for me. I was out of town for the weekend but now I’m back and getting back adjusted to my day-to-day life. I don’t like just throwing posts together, especially since both the Grammar of the Week and Word of the Day posts have been really helpful to a lot of you. So instead of just randomly putting something together, I’m going to adjust this week’s schedule.

First thing, there won’t be a Grammar of the Week this week. I honestly don’t know what to move on to next just yet so while I figure that out I’m going to instead just focus on the WOTD.

Second, no Weekend Kpop Update but there will be a Wednesday Kpop Update as usual and the usual Thursday posts. I’ve been contemplating on posting something Friday… I don’t know yet. But there may be a special post then.

With that being said, on to the Word of the Day!

여행하다 (yeohaenghada) | “to travel”

So we’re going to do a little grammar here and that’s constructing this into a few of sentences that are past, present and future tense.

As you may remember, I told you guys that the easiest way to identify a verb is the ending, -하다. This is an action word which means, “to do”.

i.e.,

  • 내일 뉴욕으로 여행할 거예요. (naeil nyuyog-eulo yeohaenghal geoyeyo.) | “I will be traveling to New York tomorrow.” -[Future]
  • 지난주 여행했어요. (jinanju yeohaenghaess-eoyo.) | “I traveled last week.” -[Past]
  • 넌 나와 함께 여행 할 수 있습니다. (neon nawa hamkke yeohaeng hal su issseubnida.) | “You can travel with me.” -[Present]

Surprisingly, the last one was a little harder than I thought. Hopefully this is helpful to you. I highlighted the parts of each sentence that made them either future or past tense. However, I didn’t highlight anything for the last one. The way it’s worded is enough to insinuate present tense but you would typically add 요.

So that’s it for today!
