Last week, we talked about the usage of c and how to add it in everyday conversations. Let’s do a bit of review before we continue on to the topic of -ㄹ/을래(요) .
- -자 | “let’s…”
- (지 말다 | “let’s not…”)
- 가자! | “Let’s go!”
- 하자! | “Let’s do it!”
- 가지마! | “Let’s not go!”/ “Don’t go!”
- 하지마! | “Let’s not do that!”/ “Don’t do that!”
Okay, so now that we’ve seen that, let’s look at the new topic this week, -ㄹ/을래(요). I think this is something that we’ve discussed a bit before or maybe a topic similar. Either way, this will be really quick just like last week.
Let’s get started!
- “should we…”
- ”would you like to…”
- ”shall we…”
So how do we add it to a sentence? We add it to the ending. Also, keep in mind that this involves levels of politeness. You’ll want to add 요 depending on who you’re speaking with.
- 영화를 볼래요? | conversation between two acquaintances.
- “Would you like see a movie?”
- “Shall we see a movie?”
- “Should we see a movie?”
It’s not too much different than what we discussed with -자. We’ll look at more examples of this all week!
