    3. i can't have the mp3 file for this lesson ? could you help Luke please :)

      1. Yes, you can! It should be working? Please try it again:)

    4. Thank you so much Luke! Your tutorials are very clear and easy to understand!
      May I ask a question?

      Is there any situation where we will use "나" alone to represent "I"?
      For example, if someone asks: "Who did it?" We can reply "내가did it" (I did it).

      Can I simply reply "me" just like what we say in English?
      "Who did it?"
      "Me" --> what should we say in this case? 나 or 내가 or 나를?

      Thank you!

    5. Dear Luke,

      could you explain for me the "거지" in the sentence " 너도 갈거지". Is that the Word with Questioning function in the end of the sentence?
