Teacher: (Talking about other student) This student is very motivated, hard working, and always does their best. I really think they're going places in this world. New Kid: What about them? (Talking about me) Teacher: 이 학생은 저렇지 않아요.
It would be helpful if Duolinge teaches us the words for "He" "She" "They" "We" etc.
The korean language foesn't really use pronouns in the same way as English, and it's more common to describe people by title or omit pronouns altogether. Also a lot of the sentences in Duolingo do use "he", "she", "they" and "we"? (그, 그녀, 그들/그녀들, 우리) I think of these only 우리 is commonly used as pronouns (?) And it should be noted that apparently the word for "she" sounds rude and is therefore should be avoided
You can edit your comments. No need for a separate one for a correction :) (Not trying to be rude, just letting you know.)
He= 그 She= 그녀 Us= 우리 But they're not reallg used as most times the subject is omitted
What is the difference between ...저렇지 않아요 and ...그렇지 않아요? Don't both mean "...not like that." ?
This would be the same difference between 그쪽 and 저쪽. That and that over there.
저 is that thing over there, 그 is that thing next to you or that thing we are currently talking about.
It would be nice to learn a word and then be able to hear it in many different ways during the whole lesson
What is the casual way of saying sit "않다." I know there's "않습니다" but what is a level down from that? Also how would I use it as a command?
The most casual form of 않다 is 않아. If you're asking about "to sit" (which is a different verb, 앉다), the most casual form would be 앉아. The verb 않다 is actually not used in command form, and it's replaced with the verb 말다. The way to used it as a command depends on what politeness level you want to use.
