Earlier this week I introduced you to your first 10 Korean verbs. Did you learn them? Or perhaps the bigger question, do you still remember them? Today we'll be looking at how to conjugate them into the polite present tense. When you look up verbs in the dictionary, they will look like this: 가다 = to go 먹다 = to eat 자다 = to sleep You'll notice that they all end in -다. The first stage of conjugation is to drop the -다. This gives you the verb stem. You'll use the verb stem and the appropriate verb ending to conjugate the verb correctly. In order to conjugate a verb into the present tense, you take the verb stem, and add one of these endings: -아요 / -어요 / -여요 ** Note that we are introducing the endings in the polite language. Do not worry about learning to use different politeness levels for the moment. If the verb stem’s last vowel is ㅏ or ᅩ , it is followed by 아요. If the last vowel is NOT ᅡor ᅩ, it is followed by 어요. And only one verb stem, which is 하, is followed by 여요. Example: 가다 = to go The verb stem is 가 and its last vowel is ᅡ so you add 아요. So it first becomes 가 + 아요, and then more naturally, it becomes 가요 for ease of pronunciation. 하다 = to do Verb stem? 하 What is it followed by? 여요 하 + 여요 ---> 하여요 Over time, 하여요 became 해요
I have long forgotten my lessons in korean and this would help me to review and learn again. But how do I construct sentences in korean in order to converse?
I love these - I mean, honestly, I'm past this level but it's really nice to refresh with these cards! I especially liked the one on particles - it made me realise I didn't know my particles as well as I thought I did!

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?!
