Unit 5: Lessons 109 – 116

Lesson109picLesson 109: In this lesson, you will learn a difficult grammatical principle that is very common in speech. Here, you will learn how to attach ~는가 보다 (or ~나 봐, or ~나 보네) to the end of a sentence to express that something might be the case.
Lesson110picLesson 110: In this lesson, you will learn how to use 어쩔 수 없다 and its various forms in sentences. Though not quite a grammatical principle (it’s more of a word combined with “~ㄹ/을 수 없다” it’s usage is fairly common and quite difficult – enough to warrant me to write a lesson about it.
Lesson111picLesson 111: In this lesson, you will learn how to add ~(이)라도 to nouns. Though this grammatical principle looks similar to (and sometimes even translates similarly to) ~더라도 (which you learned in Lesson 99), ~(이)라도 is in fact a separate grammatical principle with a separate usage and meaning.
Lesson112picLesson 112: In this lesson, you will learn how to use 편, both as a noun and as a grammatical principle to make your sentences softer and more humble.
Lesson113picLesson 113: In this lesson, you will learn how to use 길 as a noun that can replace 것 in the ~는 것 principle. Don’t be confused! This grammatical principle isn’t describing a road. It has a special meaning that we can study as a separate grammatical principle.
Lesson114picLesson 114: In this lesson, you will learn another noun that is often described by ~는 것 to form a grammatical principle. In this lesson, you will learn how to use ~는 김에.
Lesson115picLesson 115: In this lesson, you will learn about a grammatical principle that looks like it has an entirely different meaning and purpose than it actually does. I remember when I saw ~ㄹ/을걸 for the first time, I said to myself “Oh, I can probably guess what that means!” Boy was I wrong. Let me teach it to you.
Lesson116Lesson 116: In this Lesson, you will learn about the grammatical principle “채”, which I’m sure you have come across by this point. 채 is another noun that can be used as the noun in the ~는 것 principle that takes on a special meaning. In this lesson, you will learn how it can be used.
