The next part is our first introduction to using the past tense. Understanding how to speak in the past tense is not terribly difficult in Korean, however your ability to use it well in conversation will always be improved as your experience and vocabulary grow, and so from now on I'll try to incorporate it into each lesson so that when you can continually improve your ability to speak in this extremely useful tense.

Starting next class, we're going to get into our first 'group' of verbs, the 하다-verbs (ha-da verbs). That will be kind of the first step right before we get into the 'nuts and bolts' of it all, but it'll be spread over two classes, 'cause ha-da verbs are important, and have some unique characteristics and usages that I felt warranted a couple classes.
