Korean politeness levels 안녕하세요! I am just reading a Korean grammar book and it explains that there are five levels of politeness in Korean language, three informal levels and two formal levels. 1st level: -아/어 2nd level: -다,는/ㄴ다 3d level: -네 4th level: -아요/어요 5th level: -습/ㅂ니다 Very unfortunately, this book lacks a table of these forms for at least some examples. Would you be so very kind to give me the five forms for the following two verbs? 하다 and 이다 고맙습니다!!

The second and third levels are seldom used in everyday Korean, for 하다, 공부하다 공부해/공부한다/공부하네/공부해요/공부합니다 for 이다, 사랑이다 사랑이야/사랑이다/사랑이네/사랑이에요/사랑입니다 \^o^/
