Skip to 0 minutes and 1 secondMale student: Seyeon, can you draw?

Skip to 0 minutes and 4 secondsFemale student: Yes I can draw.

Skip to 0 minutes and 7 secondsMale student: Are you good at drawing?

Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsFemale student: No, I'm not good at drawing.

Skip to 0 minutes and 14 secondsProf.Lee: Did you enjoy the video? In the previous steps, we studied "do well" and "not do well". In this case too, the form can change depending on the verb. How do we say “(drawing a)picture” in Korean? Since the verb used with “picture” is “to draw” the correct sentence is “to draw well/ to not draw well”. when conjugating the verb “dance[ch´uda]”, you have to add the ending ´eoyo´. Therefore it becomes “ch´u-eo-yo”, when speaking fast it will sound as “ch´ueo-yo”. So you should say “I am good at dancing. [Ch´umeul jal ch´ueo-yo.]"/ "I am not good at dancing. [Ch´umeul jal mot ch´ueo-yo.]” Let's practice this once.

Skip to 1 minute and 21 secondsGood. This time let’s practice with the female student’s part of the dialogue.

Skip to 1 minute and 43 secondsYes, well done! I'm good at drawing. / I'm good at dancing. Everyone, let's practice one more time.

Skip to 1 minute and 54 secondsMale student: Seyeon, can you draw?

Skip to 1 minute and 58 secondsFemale student: Yes I can draw.

Skip to 2 minutes and 1 secondMale student: Are you good at drawing?

Skip to 2 minutes and 3 secondsFemale student: No, I'm not good at drawing.

Role playing 2

In the previous steps, we studied ‘잘해요(잘하다) and ‘잘 못 해요(잘 못 하다)’. Since the verb used with ‘그림(picture)’ is ‘그리다(to draw)’ the correct sentence is ‘그림을 잘 그리다/잘 못 그리다(to draw well/ to not draw well)’.

In this case too, the form can change depending on the verb. When conjugating the verb ‘추다’ you have to add the ending ´어요´ . Therefore it becomes ‘추어요’, when speaking fast it will sound as ‘춰요’. So you should say ‘춤을 추어요/춤을 춰요’.

Now try to ask what someone can or cannot do and things that they are good or not good at. you can choose a character (Michael or Jenny) try to practice one more time.

남학생 : 제니 씨는 그림을 __?
