**There are two ways to say “Want.” =>depends on if
you are using a noun or a verb
1.] 자는한드폰을원합니다.= I want a cellphone
2.] 저는한드폰을받고싶습니다.=I want to get a cell phone.
differences in the two sentences is that the 1st one only uses a
2nd sentence uses a verb- “to get”
Want = Noun+ (을/를) 원합니다
want = Noun + (을/를) 원하지않습니다
*When you want
to express you want something, take the Noun, attach the object marker- then
*저는음식을원합니다.= I want food.
**저 (I or Me) 는(Topic Marker)음식
(Food) 을(Object Marker) 원합니다
* 저 는연필을원합니다.= I want a pencil.
**저(I or Me)는(Topic Marker)연필(Pencil) 을(Object Marker) 원합니다(want)
opposite(Don’t want)- expressed by using 원하지않습니다.
*저는야채를원하지않습니다.= I don’t want
**저(I or Me) 는 (Topic Marker)야채(vegetables) 를(object marker) 원하지않습니다(Don’t want)
*저는돈을원하지않습니다. 사랑을원합니다.= I don’t want
money. I want love. *저 (I or Me) 는(Topic Marker) 돈( Money) 을(Object Marker)원하지않습니다.(I don’t want). ((dropped the “I” because we’re still talking about “I”)) 사랑(love) 을(Object Marker) 원합니다
to” and “Don’t want to”
to= Verb Stem + 고싶습니다 *Don’t want to= Verb Stem + 고싶지않습니다.
*when you want to express that you want to “DO an action” take the VERB STEM and attach 고,
then add 싶습니다
what is this Verb Stem?? O_O
*Getting the Verb Stem is easy! ^_^
*Just take a verb and remove the 다 at
the end, and that is it, you have the Verb Stem =)
*^*^*^ verb stems are used
EVERYWHERE in Korean. So it’s good to remember this :D Examples: * 하다= 하 *벌다= 벌 *먹다= 먹
So, back to Want to and Not Wanting To now that we know
the Verb Stem:
want to eat fruits.
Marker) 과일=(fruits) 을=(object marker) 먹=(verb stem of to eat) 고싶습니다=(
*저는돈을벌고싶습니다.= I want to earn
marker) 돈=(Money) 을=(Money)
벌=(verb stem of to earn) 고싶습니다.= (want to)
don’t want to is: VERB STEM + 고싶지않습니다.
*저는야채를먹고싶지않습니다.= I don’t want to eat vegetables.
* 저는죽고싶지않습니다.= I don’t want to die.
* 저는웃고싶지않습니다.= I don’t want to laugh*.
mean either “laugh” or “smile” It can be translated for whichever fits the
Advanced Notes: This form (*Want to= Verb
Stem + 고싶습니다) can only be used for “I”
or “You” and cannot be used to mean “he or she”
*In Korean you can’t talk about the desires of another person directly.
*Although you can say “I want to go” or “you want to go” in Korean it is NOT
acceptable to say “he wants to go” or “She wants to go” w/this same form.
*SO remember, this form *Want to= Verb
Stem + 고싶습니다 is only for when talking about yourself
or someone you’re directly speaking to.
*&*Remember= If expressing you want to do something
use, Verb Stem + 고싶습니다, but if you want to express that you just WANT
something, use, Noun+ (을/를) 원합니다
Please Give Me:
* Noun + (을/를) 주세요.
*Say what you want, followed by the Object Marker, then add주세요.
Please give me money.
Please give me a hint.
Please give me a book.
**Culture Notes: 5% of Korean words are influenced from
foreign languages, specifically English ^^
**Reading the Conversation:
철수: 저는아르바이트를원합니다.= I
want a part time job.
want a part time job too.
==>Here in this convo we
have 저(I or Me) followed by 도.
means “I also, or Me too”
The Last Part of this Post
will be on two particles.
The Particle도 *도 takes
the place of 는 in
the above sentence
would be incorrect. When using the
particle도, it replaces whatever
particle was there before (if there was one) *도
is placed directly after a word
*도 means=> Also, Even, Too
*저도김치를좋아합니다.= I also like kimchi.
*저는김치도좋아합니다.=I like kimchi too.
*Notice how the meaning
changes by placing도in a
*도 emphasizes also, even, or
too, “ONLY” for the NOUN or PRONOUN it directly follows
also want a car.
*저는자동치도원합니다.= I want a car too.
**Because도 in this sentence is placed after car it
means, “I want a car, in addition to whatever else I may want.” And NOT I also
want a car like you do.
*the word car can be simply shortened to 차 but
know that 차
also means tea. It should only be shortened when the meaning is clear from the
works grammatically similar to도, in
that it comes after a noun. It
replaces whatever particle was there(if there was one) EXCEPT for the Object
Marker, which you may replace if you want to.
*저만좋아합니다.= Only I like tuna.
*저는참치만원합니다.= I only like tuna.
*^*Here w/o만 the
sentence would be 저는참치를원합니다.
*b/c it would normally use an Object Marker you could have also written it like
this저는참치만원합니다. =I only eat tuna.
**to keep it simple, feel free to remove whatever particle was there before
every time and you will be just fine
영희: 저도일하고싶지않습니다. 게임하고싶습니다.
= I also don’t want work. I want to
play games. 철수: 저도
= I also want to play games. But I
want to earn money too.
~*~*~*~*~ Until next time friends!
*Hope this was helpful. Once again please let me know if
I have made any mistakes/typos, I am not the best with typing in Korean yet. I
will type the Vocab for this note collection tomorrow ^^ If you have any
questions feel free to Ask me on here or hit me up on Kakao, NonEdibleHuman
Also, quick side note: I stopped doing breaking down every sentence, hopefully by now they should be easier to read? If they are still too confusing let me know. I will go back through and break the sentences down more simpler. ^_^ Fighting! :o]
