도와줄게요 (dowajulgeyo) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

If you follow my Foreign Language Tip series, it is not a coincidence that I used that video with this word in there. It was intentional! This is part of my list of words that I think are useful. I will still be compiling these words into one large post and I decided to do that at the end of this month.

Let’s get started!

도와줄게요 (dowajulgeyo) | “I will help you”

Quick Grammar Point:

-게요 is attached to words to give it the meaning of asking someone if it’s okay for you do something. For example, in English you would say something like, “Is it okay if I help you?” or “Would you like me to help you?” This ending takes on the same meaning. It can be used for other words as well but we’re just going to look at it with this word. 

i.e.,

  • 방 청소를 도와줄게요. (bang cheongsoleul dowajulgeyo.) | “I’ll help you clean your room.”
  • 숙제 도와줄게요. (sugje dowajulgeyo.) | “I’ll help you with your homework.”

We’ll revisit -게요 again soon!
