돕다 (dobda) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Word:

  • 돕다 (dobda) | “to help”

i.e.,

  • 도와 줄 수있어?? (dowa jul su-iss-eo?) | “Can you help me?”
    • 줄 수 is used here instead of 할 수 because it indicates “giving” so consider this as asking for someone to give you assistance or help. 
  • 너는 그를 도와야한다. (neoneun geuleul dowayahanda.) | “You should help him.”

Weekly Lesson #33 | -고 있어요 Present Progressive {video}

안녕하세요!

Sorry everybody! I completely forgot to post yesterday.

I’ve talked about this in the past but I never could find a video to explain it in such a way that would make it clear. This is something you’ll be using a lot as you begin to speak more and so I want to make sure that this is something you really understand.

I think this particular video because not only is it explained but they have more examples than what I used in the past.

  • 한식 어디에서 먹을 수 있습니까? (hansig eodieseo meog-eul su issseubnikka?) | “Where can I eat Korean food?”
