Plurals – 들 Posted by on Dec 7, 2015 in Uncategorized

Today you are going to learn how to use plurals in Korean, the grammar pattern is “Noun + 들”. Some dictionaries say that the grammar pattern is not right because it is from English and Korean don’t have to use 들 as a plurals. For instance, there are many people/사람이 많이 있다 or 사람들이 많이 있다 are the same meaning.  It is the languages it doesn’t follow the grammar pattern always, and most Korean use it without any consideration. However, I recommend you NOT use the 들 when you speak because it can be confused and it is not alway like the pattern. So, you can learn 들 for your listening.  Please read the examples below.

Book   책 – 책들

House 집 – 집들

Car      차 – 차들

People 사람 – 사람들
