Which type of sentence pattern would you like to learn to construct?

Korean PatternEnglish Examples
Subject-predicate-descriptive verb* Joe is a doctor.
This is a pencil.
Subject-object-action verb I see the cat.
Mr. Kim buys a book.
Subject-predicate-"existence" verb There is a school [in Seoul].
There isn’t a book [on the table].
Mr. Kim has a chair.
I don’t have a key.

(Yes, these all really fit the same pattern in Korean!)

*Note: A descriptive verb is similar to what we call a linking verb in English.
