3. 9/11 Lesson summary:

- Expression -지 못하다 is attached after a verb to deny the situation or show inability for the action

* Take out -다 at the end from a verb stem and add -지 못하다 (ex. 먹다 -> 먹지 못하다, 걷다 -> 걷지 못하다)

* (verb) -지 못하다 = 못 (verb) (ex. 가지 못하다 = 못 가다)

- If you add the word "잘" in front of the expression -지 못하다 or 못 (verb), it does not mean you cannot do it, but it means you are not good at it

ex. 요가를 잘 하지 못해요. (I am not good at doing yoga.)

요가를 하지 못해요. (I cannot do yoga. / I am not able to do yoga.)

- Answering to negative questions: In Korean, you have to answer "yes" if you agree with the person who asked you a negative question and "no" if you do not agree with the person with the negative question

ex. 밥 안 먹었어요? (Did you not eat?)

"네, 안 먹었어요." (Yes, I did not eat.)

"아니요, 먹었어요." (No, I ate.)

- We also talked about 추석 (Korean Thanksgiving day) and some vocabulary and expressions we talked about are:

차례 (차례를 지내요): indoor ancestor worship

성묘 (성묘를 가요 / 성묘를 해요): outdoor ancestors' grave visit

강강술래, 줄다리기, 연날리기, 씨름

전, 송편

즐거운 추석 (한가위) 되세요.

추석 (한가위) 잘 보내세요.

풍성한 추석 (한가위) 되세요.

Please let me know if you have any questions about yesterday's lesson.

감사합니다. 다음 주 월요일에 만나요!
