Role playing 2

Role play : what does your older sister do?

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.

1) Michael’s part of the dialogue

남학생 : 제니 씨는 그림을 __?

여학생 : 네, 그림을 그릴 수 있어요.

남학생 : 그림을 __?

여학생 : 아니요, 저는 그림을 잘 못 그려요.

2) Jenny’s part of the dialogue

남학생 : 제니 씨는 그림을 그릴 수 있어요?

여학생 : 네, 그림을 __.

남학생 : 그림을 잘 그려요?

여학생 : 아니요, 저는 그림을 __.
