Are you doing? - ~는 거야? [Informal]

Are you doing? - ~는 거야?

는 거야 is commonly used in situations where you see somebody doing something and you want to ask them what they are doing. Again, 는 거야 can only be used when you are actually watching somebody doing something, and you want to ask them what they are doing.

● Rule 

Take 다 off a plain verb and add 는 거야?

  • 하다 → 하는 거야? = Are you doing?
  • 가다 → 가는 거야? = Are you going?
  • 읽다 → 읽는 거야? = Are you reading?
  • 보다 → 보는 거야? = Are you watching?
  • 쓰다 → 쓰는 거야? = Are you writing?
  • 먹다 → 먹는 거야? = Are you eating?
  • 마시다 → 마시는 거야? = Are you drinking?
  • 자다 → 자는 거야? = Are you sleeping?
  • 보내다 → 보내는 거야? = Are you sending?


Eg.
  • 일 하는 거야? = Are you working?
  • 학교 숙제 하는 거야? = Are you doing school homework?
  • 점심 먹는 거야? = Are you having lunch?
  • 집에 가는 거야? = Are you going home?
  • 교회 가는 거야? = Are you going to church?

  • 에세이 쓰는 거야? = Are you writing an essay?
  • 문자 메시지 보내는 거야? = Are you sending a txt message?
