Male student: No, I cannot dance. Hello everyone, I am Lee Young Sook. Did you enjoy the video? This week we are studying the grammar structure “Hal soo itta”. For words like “Swimming”, “basketball”, “baseball”, “yoga”, etc… you have to use the verb ‘to do[hada]’. However, in case of ‘dance[chum]’, you´ll have to use theverb ‘to dance’[추다] and say “I can dance” (Ch´umeul ch´ul so itta) And, when saying “play the piano” you must use the verb “play/beat” (ch´ida). Therefore, the correct sentence is “I can play the piano” Now, should we practice this once?

This week we’re talking about ‘~할 수 있어요.’

For words like “Swimming”, “basketball”, “baseball”, “yoga”, etc… you have to use the verb ‘to do (in Korean 하다). However, in some cases, the verb is different. With “dance “ you´ll have to use the verb ‘추다(to dance)’ and say ‘춤을 출 수 있어요.’
