Particle: The Location Particle -에서

Nick Weymiens

Hi, my name is Nick. I currently live in Belgium with my Korean partner. Meeting my Korean partner has set me on a path that has made me experience so much. Because of that I am currently learning Chinese and Korean and I hope you will join that amazing journey.

    Hi Nick,
    Thank you so much for creating this website. It is very useful in learning korean Particles and Patterns.
    Actually i have one doubt regarding a particle, as i could not find that particle on your website.
    러 – ‘For”
    It is used to show a reason for the verb. Ex. I went to shopping for buying clothes. In this case buying clothes is the reason for my going on shopping.

    I am not sure if i am able to explain it to you properly. Let me know if you find this particle or if its already there on your website.

    Hope you can help me in learning this.

    • Hello Sarita,

      I’m glad to read you enjoy my work, though due to the recent malfunctioning of my computer. I haven’t been able to update it. I do hope to finally replace the broken device in a few months. After which I want to redo a lot of things.

      To your question. I have in fact already covered the grammar topic you speak about: -(으)러 가다/오다. It is a rathar easy, but useful topic as it express the reason why you are going somewhere therefore in the second part of the setence you will generally encounter a verb of movement such as 가다 or 오다. You can read my entire text on -(으)러 가다/오다 at your leisure, I hope it will help you better understand it.

      Keep learning Korean,
