못 + 공부했지만 (I studied but…) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

This week, I’m trying to use examples that are bit complex but not too far off from what we’ve been doing up until now. I hope it’s still easy to follow!

This example for today is focusing on not just how to use 못 but also how to use it in a connected past tense sentence.

Let’s get started!

공부했지만 (gongbuhaessjiman) | “I studied but…”

  • past tense
  • transitional word -지만
    • connects “I studied…” to the rest of the sentence

i.e.,

  • 나는 공부했지만 잘하지 못 봤어. (naneun gongbuhaessjiman jalhaji mos bwass-eo.)| “I studied but I didn’t do well on the test.”

Okay so that’s it for today!
