안녕하세요! I was gone for a bit, but I am back! My AP Government class was taking over my life for a bit there. I was drowning, but somehow managed to write a 5 page essay last night that was due today... It took me like 8 hours. Anyways, that is the reason I've been M.I.A. In the last card, I told you guys I'd teach you basic sentence structure, so here that is! After this, I'll be posting words of the day and random vocab stuff so you can learn some things with me.
Sentence structure is different in Korean than English. In English, it goes: sybject+ verb+ object. In Korean, it goes: subject (particle)+ object (particle) + verb. Yup, the verb goes at the end! Before I give you some practice, I'll tell you about basic particles.
Particles are little things you attach to words to let the other person know that it's the noun or object and other grammatical stuff. One type of particles for the subject of the sentence: 는 : When the word ends in a vowel 은 : When the word ends in a consonant One type of particles for objects: 를 : When the word ends in a vowel 을 : When the word ends in a consonant When you practice reading and speaking, adding these become second nature and you won't have to think about it. Lets practice!
We'll start by telling me what you like!
저 : I 좋아요: like "저" is the subject, so it gets the noun particle. "ㅓ" is a vowel, so it gets 는. How you would start it is: 저는 _____ 좋아요 is the verb like. So you are saying you like "___". This is how it's set up: 저는 __(를/을) 좋아요.
What I want you to do is comment using this sentence: 저는 __(를/을) 좋아요.
Fill in the blank by putting an object. Here's my sentence for you: 저는 책을 좋아요. I like books. (책=book) A list of words for you are below. If you know other words, feel free to use them!
책:book 신발: shoes 메이크업: makeup 밥: food/ rice 아이스크림: ice cream 케이크: cake 음악: music 인스타그램: instagram TV 프로그램: tv show 음식: food 차: tea/ car I look forward to seeing your sentences!
