Unit 6: Lessons 134 – 141

Lesson 134: This lesson is an organization of all of the English-based words I could come up with. I talk about these “Konglish” words in three sections: words borrowed from English where the meaning is different than the English usage; words that are a combination of English and Korean; words in Korean that have been directly borrowed from English.
Lesson 135: In this lesson, you will learn about the syllable 성. You will learn that 성 can have the meaning of a) Character or a range of some quality, b) completion, or c) loyalty and devotion.
 Lesson 136: In this lesson, you will learn about ~기에 and ~길래. These grammatical principles are used to create a meaning of “so” or “because,” which often leads learners of Korean confused with how these may be different than ~아/어서.
Lesson 137: In this lesson, you will learn how to add ~아/어야 to the end of a clause. You saw this grammatical principle in a previous lesson, but only followed by 하다. We will look at how this is used in all other situations.
Lesson 138: In this lesson, we will add complexity to a very common grammatical principle. ~아/어야 하다 was introduced in Lesson 46 as a way to indicate that one must do an action. In the previous lesson, I broke that grammatical principle down by explaining the purpose of ~아/어야 and even indicated that it can be used without the concluding 하다. In this lesson, you will see even more ways that ~아/어야 can be used. It is also possible to add ~아/어야 to a clause that already has the past tense marker ~았/었 in it. In this lesson, we will look at how you can use ~았/었어야 하다
