Today we'll be looking at the usage of "V ~(으) ㄹ게요" with some example sentences.
An expression used when the speaker promises or notifies the listener that he/she will do something.
This is yet another grammar pattern which is easy to use.
Like for example :
- I will call you. - 제가 전화 할게요.
- I will come see you soon. - 제가 바로 보고 갈래요.
Here you can see how (으) ㄹ게요 is used in sentences where the speaker promises of doing something.
With that we know it is attached with Verbs.
Now let's look at the conjugation rules :
It's quite simple as you have to keep only two things in mind.
1. When the verb stem ends with a constant you have to add ㄹ게요 after removing 다 from the root verb.
- I'll call you as soon as I arrive.
도착하는 대로 전화드릴게요.
- I will keep my promises in the future.
앞으로는 약속을 잘 지킬게요.
- I'll take care of cleaning my room.
제 방 청소는 제가 알아서 할게요.
2. When the verb stem ends with a vowel you have to add 을게요 after removing 다 from the root verb.
- From now on, I will eat on time.
이제부터 제 시간에 밥 먹을게요.
- I'll close the door well before I go out.
외출하기 전에 문을 잘 닫을게요.
- In the office, I will sit in a designated seat.
사무실에서는 정해진 자리에 앉을게요.
In this last example the speaker is notifying instead of making a promise.
