"That tree is that tall."

Translation:그 나무는 그만큼 높습니다.

Why can you not use tall (키가 큽니다) here? I.e.

저 나무가 키가 그만큼 큽니다

Korean is a confusing language

As I understood it, 키가 ... is only used to describe people's height.

So 키가 is only used with pronouns?

October 23, 2018


No, not just pronouns. Can also be used with nouns to talk about height.

For this lesson: Jiminy 키가 급니다.

Jiminy is tall.


Jiminy 큽니다.

Jiminy is big.

duolingo said i had to use something but the option wasn't there lol 높아. yet now, above it says to use: 높습니다

what's the difference and why? please any help oml

"높다" is the dictionary verb stem meaning "to be high/tall", which can be conversationally conjugated as follows:

존댓말 격식 / Polite formal - 높습니다

존댓말 비격식 / Polite informal - 높아요

반말 / Casual - 높아

All three should be accepted, but considering this is in beta, they may not have been added to the accepted answers list. Please report such findings in future to help develop the course :).
