~는답니다/ㄴ답니다/답니다/이랍니다 (I heard that…)

This is used in conversation, when the speaker says something that he/she thinks the other the listener does not know, assumes so anyway. In the case of action verbs (는/ㄴ using 는 vowels). After descriptive a verb, 답니다 is used and with nouns (이)랍니다 is used. If the talked about action has already ended use -었답니다.
