Grammar 2 (안 ~)

How to use of some grammars or sentences, differences in the use of particles. In this week we are going to learn ‘안~’.

(Attached to a verb or an adjective) It is used to give negative meaning to the predicate.

For example, if the speaker says “안 좋아하다” adding “안” in front of the verb “like,” the verb “like” now becomes a negative form.

Similarly, if the speaker puts “안” in front of an adjective such as “pretty,” the word “안 예쁘다” now has a negative meaning of pretty.

* ex. 저는 수영을  좋아해요. (I don’t like swimming.)
