Weekly Lesson #56 | 할 수 있다

안녕하세요!

I randomly started thinking about this topic so I looked all over on this site for it and couldn’t find it anywhere. I was so certain I covered this as a Grammar of the Week or something. I guess that means I should probably do a post about it now. I was really hoping for a Grammar post on this so I can connect the grammatical part of this lesson with the “everyday use” so you can better understand why it is used this way.

This is probably going to be a pretty short post since this is relatively easy and I really really feel like it’s on here somewhere! So unless this is déjà vu, when I find it I will link it to this post. (Unless it really isn’t here and then I’ll just do a post about it strictly on grammar.)

Let’s get started!

Vocabulary:

  • 노래 | song / sing
  • 음악 | music
  • 가수 | singer

할 수 있다 (hal su issda) | “the ability to do something”; “can do something”

i.e.,

  • 나 노래 할 수있어. | “I can sing.”
  • 그는 가수가 할 수 있습니다. | “He can be a singer.”
  • 나는 요리 할 수있다. | “I can cook.”
