Korean 101: How to Become Prettier!

Here's how to say you BECAME a certain way :)

Adjective + 지다 means "To become + adjective"

Examples: 힘들어졌어요
It became more difficult.
행복해졌어요
I became happier.
1. Take a verb in the 요 form
Example: 예뻐요 (ye-ppeo-yo, you're pretty!)
2. Take off the 요 and add 졌어요
Example: 예뻐졌어요 (ye-ppeo-jyeoss-eo-yo, you became pretty!)
3. You're done!

People often use this to compliment looks like:

예뻐졌어요

(ye-ppeo-jyeo-sseo-yo)

(Because of your new haircut, outfit, etc) You became prettier!

It's not saying you didn't look pretty BEFORE, just that with whatever the change is, you look extra pretty that day :)

Another way to do it ~

Listen at 1:03

더 예뻐진 나

A more prettier me

This is how you make the verb describe something. Instead of saying "I became prettier" its saying "The me that became prettier"...its more advanced grammar but if you know how to say things like 좋은 하루 its the same idea!

Now your turn!

Fill in the blank:

Because _________, I became happier :)

행복해졌어요

(haeng-bok-hae-jyeoss-eo-yo)

Became happier :)

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
