Verb + 허락


The word 허락 means permission and you can use this pattern to express that you got someone’s permission to do something. The pattern though is more complex than what is shown here. You need to conjugate the main verb first into –() 있다 which is the equivalent of can do something in English and then add – which is someone what like the –ly adverb in English. The complete verb phrase for to get a permission is 허락 받다 and it is naturally transformed into past tense here.

주말에 있게 허락 받았어.

있게 허락 받았어.
I got a permission to go.
