Learn to tweet in Korean #3 - "I think so."
Hey everyone, how are you doing? Hope you are having fun learning the Korean language!
In this post, I'd like to introduce how to say "I think so." in Korean.
The word for "to think" is 생각하다 [saeng-gak-ha-da] but when you want to say "I think so," it's more natural to use this expression:
그런 것 같아요.
[geu-reon geot ga-ta-yo.]
그렇다 = to be so
~것 같다 = to seem like, to be like
So, 그런 것 같아요 literally means "It seems to be so." but this is actually an indirect way for Koreans to say "I think so."
So next time you want to say to someone "I think so",
you can say "그런 것 같아요."
Thanks for reading. Feel free to tweet me in Korean at @ever4one!
