Role playing 1

Role play : Can you dance? No, I cannot dance.

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.’

  • 수영을 하다
  • 야구를 하다
  • 춤을 추다
