Lesson 10:

내일 뭐 할 거예요?

We're throwing you a curveball here in lesson 10.  Last week you learned past tense, and this week, you're going to learn future tense.  Don't stress, we'll walk you through it.  

On Day 3 we have some listening practice for you.  And Day for (Korean Plus) we'll be looking at location words, expanding on the ~에 we learned a few lessons ago.

Because we're focusing on future tense in Day 2, we have some words about the future for your vocabulary.  Check it out below.


Study the above to your heart's content, and when you're ready, let's check out the future tense grammar on DAY 2 !

Lesson 10 Grammar:

Future Tense


As you've probably noticed, the conjugation for future tense is a little different from the conjugation for the present tense and the past tense.  While those tenses change depending on the vowel, our future tense is all about whether there is or isn't a final consonant on our verb.   Kind of like our subject & object markers on our nouns, right?  (Note the difference between our object markers and this future tense ending.  It's a slight one.)

So, if there's no bottom consonant on the last syllable of verb, we just add ~ㄹ 거예요.  How, then, do you conjugate the following verbs?

보다     볼 거예요

가르치다     가르칠 거예요

공부하다     공부할 거예요

쉬다     쉴 거예요


If there is a consonant at the bottom of the final syllable, we have to add ~을 거예요.  So once again, try to conjugate the verbs below.

먹다     먹을 거예요

입다     입을 거예요

읽다     읽을 거예요

It's really not that hard, right?  One thing: with final consonants, don't forget to attach the sound to the following vowel: in 읽다, ​the ㄱ is smashed in there between the ㄹ and the ㄷ, which messes with our pronunciation.  But when conjugated, the ㄹ and the ㄱ ring out in full glory.

Once again, but harder.  Enter the correct future tense conjugation for the words below.  One is irregular, but we're not going to tell you which one.  

Yep. 만들다.  Because it already has a ㄹ at the end of the final syllable.  

That's it for this lesson.  What do you think?  Got a question?  You know what to do...

Let's practice this grammar on DAY 3 with some listening activities!
