The Most Important Verbs in Korean

The heart of every language lies in its verbs. If you can correctly recognize and form verbs, you have already mastered the most important aspect of grammar.
To immediately start expressing a lot in Korean, you only need five verbs in the beginning.
These are:
  1. to have
  2. to be
  3. to go
  4. can
  5. to do
Learn these five Korean verbs in the present tense in all six conjugated forms by heart: I go, you go, he/she/it goes, we go, you (plural) go, they go.
Also learn the past and future forms of the verbs to have, to be, to go, and to do.
