In order to examine one aspect of Korean language education in Turkey, learners' acquisition patterns of Korean one-to-many correspondence sentence patterns corresponding to'-abil', which shows the broadest meaning category in Turkish, were investigated.

To this end, with the first-grade students of the Department of Korean Language and Literature at Istanbul University's writing assignments and test writing materials over a total of two years in their first and second grades, the usage and error patterns of similar expressions of ‘ can ’ in Korean were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively.

As a result, the fallout phenomenon of 'su itda' appeared most prominently along with the error of substitution with 'sudo itda'. Through this, it was found that the learners used a much more assertive mode than the native speakers in expressing their subjective views.

Focusing on the representative patterns , ‘ -su itda ’, error patterns for each learner and semester were investigated, and the timing of effective learning of similar patterns was discussed.
