Useful Adjectives (Descriptive Verbs)

Imagine you are traveling a foreign country.  You go to a restaurant, order food and eat it.  The server comes and asks how the food is, and you want to say "Good!"  Or, let's say you go to a historic site, see a magnificent sculpture and want to say "Beautiful!" or "Amazing!" to your local friend or a guide.   All you need to say is those adjectives in that language. Don't worry about the subject, object, all that grammar stuff. 

A language is all about sharing your thoughts and feeling and for that very reason, learning basic adjectives is a great place to start. 

 

Below are some useful adjectives you can immediately use. 
These adjectives are placed at the end of a sentence.

 

Example>
It is cute.   귀여워요.   (귀여워요 = cute)
The puppy is cute.  강아지가 귀여워요.  (강아지 = puppy,  ~가 = subjective particle)

(For these adjectives to directly modify a noun, such as a "cute puppy", you need different conjugation rules, which we will cover later on.)
