Korean Lesson 53, Conjugating Verbs

I have a whole stack of verbs that go with my verb game. These are verbs that are used more than any other. That is my way of developing, teaching, and learning materials for a new language. I don’t want to mess with stuff that doesn’t matter in the beginning. I just want to communicate or get my students to communicate as quickly as possible. After I learn the most used words in a language, then I decide if there is a field that I happen to talk about more than any other, and I try to learn the words in that area. I made these cards for students at a Christian university in Korea, so there may be verbs in this stack of verbs that are there because they go to chapel, church, and Bible classes all the time, and many of them go to English chapel or English Bible studies. There may be other verbs in here too that are especially useful for people in Korea. I gave you ten verbs yesterday, I will give you ten more today.

Vocabulary: 사랑 하다 (sarang hadah_ = love, 일어나다 (eeleonahdah) = get up, rise, happen, 만들다 (mahnduldah) = make, 줗아하다 (joh-ah-hahdah)= like, 가지다 (kahjeedah) = have, 기도하다 (keedoh hahdah) = pray, 보다 (bohdah) = look, see, 이다 (eedah) = be (used to identify). 있다 (eetdah) = be (used to tell where something is, to say it exists, can be used for “there is,” “there are,” and “have” or “has.”), 되다 (doh-eedah) = be, become. (Often when we used “be,” they would say “become.” For example, we might say, “I am a teacher,” but if we translated straight through what they say, they would say “I became a teacher.”)

Directions: The verbs are in the most basic form, the form you find them in the dictionary. Choose the Simple present tense, the “yo” form used at the end of a sentence. I had a bit of trouble with the numbers on the computer. The computer took over and wouldn’t let me put the number I wanted where I wanted it, and once the number was there, the computer wouldn’t let me remove them, so the number of each one is in the subtitle below the pictures. The answers are at the bottom.
