Grammar 2 (~에/~에 살아요.)

In Korean, between the verb ‘to live’ and the name of the place (country, city, neighborhood, etc…) you have to put the locative particle ‘~에’, and say ‘~에 살아요.’.

There are some cases in which the particle ‘~에’ is used as a time particle, however, when used together with the verb ‘살다 (to live) ‘ it identifies the place where someone is living.

~에/~에 살아요

(Name of a place) + 에 Verb (살다)
한국 한국에 살아요.
영국 영국에 살아요.
런던 런던에 살아요.
