Weekly Lesson #14 | Review [-에 있습니다 / -에 없습니다 + 있습니다/없습니다]

안녕하세요!

So it dawned on me that I haven’t done a review session in quite some time. The benefits to reviewing is, as you progress, you’re still exposing yourself to things you’ve done previously. Of course you can always go back and look at previous lessons, however, it is good to pause sometimes and refresh your memory before moving forward.

Also, I wanted to review because next week will not be building on this topic at all. We’re going to do a bit of a shift so it’s important that you keep all this ingrained in your memory and practice so you that you don’t forget as we move forward.

Let’s get started!

있습니다/없습니다

Grammar points:

  • Remember that 있습니다 insinuates the existence of something.
  • Also, remember that 없습니다 insinuates the nonexistence or absence of something.

i.e.,

  • 나는 노트북이 있습니다. | “I have a laptop.”
  • 나는 노트북이 없습니다. | “I don’t have a laptop.”

-에 있습니다 / -에 없습니다

Grammar Points:

  • The main point here is to remember that we are talking about direction and location so you’ll need to add the location particle -에 after the direction word.

i.e.,

  • 책이 침대 위에 있습니다. | The book is on the bed.
  • 책이 침대 위에 없습니다. | “The book is not on the bed.”
  • 책이 탁자 옆에 있습니다. | “The book is next to the table.”

Okay so that’s just a really quick review of what we’ve been doing the last couple of weeks. Next week we’ll move to something new that’ll be a bit different than this.
