A quick flashback from last week’s episode:
- I am going to eat: 먹일 거에요
- I am going to drink: 막실 거에요
- I am going: 갈 거에요
Then this week we add two new forms:
One thing you hear a lot for future tense is 겠. (as you hear in the podcast, sounds a lot like English “get”.) This form is more of the meaning “I intend to, I’m positive it will happen, etc.”
Take the verb base. (everything before 다 in the dictionary) and replace with 겠 어요. (note that it always is 어요, never 아요) in this case.
- I’m sure we will eat: 먹겠 어요
- I’m sure we will drink: 마시겠 어요
- I’m sure we will go: 아겠 어요
The past probable, you will use when you apply a past tense to a verb. An example could be ‘must have’ or ‘probably have’.
- Must have eaten: 먹었일 거에요
- Must have drank: 마셨을 거에요
- Must have went: 갔을 거에요
