Unit 3: Lessons 67 – 75

Lesson67picLesson 67: In this lesson, you will learn about the meanings of ~듯 and ~처럼. Both of these have similar meanings that describe that something is similar to another thing, but are distinctly different. We will go over the meanings of each one, and describe the differences in this lesson.
Lesson68picLesson 68: In this lesson, you will learn about the word 유일하다 which can be used to create the meaning of “only” in Korean. Though you learned that the particle ~만 can be used to mean “only” in an earlier lesson, the word “유일하다” is not entirely the same.
Lesson69picLesson 69: In the previous lesson, you learned how to use the word “유일하다,” which has the meaning of “the only/the sole.” In this lesson, you will learn about a particle that a similar meaning of “only” but is used in a different way and to emphasize a different meaning. In this lesson, you will learn how to use the particle ~밖에 to mean “nothing but” or “only.”
Lesson70picLesson 70: In this lesson, you will learn about adding ~아 or ~어 between two clauses as a connector. Explaining this concept is probably the most difficult of all grammatical forms because the meaning is so subtle, and it is very difficult to find any information about it (on the internet, or by asking Korean people). Nonetheless, this concept is very common (especially in books), and needs to be explained.
Lesson71picLesson 71: In this lesson, you will learn about two opposite words that are very common in Korean. By using the word “포함하다,” you will learn how to say “including…”, and by using the word “제외하다,” you will learn how to say “except/excluding…”
Lesson72picLesson 72: In this lesson, you will learn about two particles that typically have the same meaning. By using the particles ~만큼 and ~정도 you can create the meaning of “as much as…”. However, there is much more to these particles than that simple meaning.
Lesson73picLesson 73: In this lesson, you will learn how to use 대신, which can be used in a few different ways to have the meaning of “instead.” In addition to this, you will learn a few other concepts and words that have the same or similar meaning to 대신. As always, I will break down the weird intricacies related to this in order for you to understand everything as clearly as possible.
Lesson74picLesson 74: In this lesson, you will learn how to use the word “상관없다” in sentences, both as a word that can be placed at the end of a sentence (like a verb/adjective) and as an adverb than can be placed in the middle of a sentence. In order to use this word, you will draw from previous grammatical principles that you have learned in previous lessons (~는 지, 아/어도), and learn a new one as well (~든).
Lesson75picLesson 75: In this lesson, you will learn how to use “신경 (안) 쓰다” to say “I care” or “I don’t care.” In order to create this meaning, the construction is somewhat similar to what you learned in the previous lesson, where you learned how to say “It is irrelevant if…”
