In Level 2 Lesson number 14, we learned how to change a verb into a noun form, in order to
learn how to add the meaning of“also” to a verb in Korean. To review a little, in order to add 도 after a verb, you need to add -기 after a verb stem and then add 하다. (i.e. 먹기도 해요.)

In this lesson, we are going to look at a more generalway of making nouns out of action
verbs. And understanding how this works will help you a great deal in understanding how to
form various other expressions in Korean.

-는 것 [-neun geot]
This is themost basic and general way of changing an action verb into a noun. 것 [geot] originally means “a thing” “an object” or “stuff”, but when it is used like this, it can also mean “a
fact” or “an act”.Construction:

- Verb stem + -는 것
By changing verbs into nouns, [verb stem + -는 것] can take many different meanings.
1. “doing” something
2. the act of “doing” something
3. the thing that you“do”
4. what you “do”

보다 [bo-da] = to see
보는 것 [bo-neun geot] = seeing, the act of seeing, the thing that you see, what I watch
