오다, 가다, 다니다 (어디 가세요?) | [Grammar of the Week]

안녕하세요!

Breathing a sigh of relief! We made it through last week and now we’ve begun the lesson that I’ve been trying to get to for the last couple of weeks. And the crazy part about it is, now that I’m actually doing it… I kinda think it’s a little boring. But we’re still going to go over it because it’s important.

The title may seem like this is something we’ve done a gazillion times, but we haven’t gone this far with it.

So let’s get started!

오다, 가다, 다니다… all of these verbs are different ways to express when you’re going somewhere and when you’re going somewhere.

오다 | “to come” 

  • different forms consist of:
    • 와서
    • 와요
    • 왔어
  • i.e.,
    • 너 왔어?
    • 와서 고마워.
    • 내가 왔어.

가다 | “to go”

  • different forms consist of:
    • 가요
    • 갔어

다니다 | “to go somewhere” (regularly)

  • different forms consist of:
    • 다녀요
    • 다녀요
    • 다녀
  • i.e.,
    • “어느 가게에 다녀?”
      • implying that the person visits this store frequently
    • “커피숍 다녀?”
      • implying that the person visits the coffee shop frequently

Okay, so we’re going to do activities this week with each word instead of doing the usual word and example.
