Soooooooooooo….it’s 5:34 am and I’m up studying and changing things around on this blog. Why? um….needed to be done, lol. Be sure k-lang learners to check out my [resource] page because I’ve updated it with new books info as well as a new list of “Instagram/Studygrams” people to follow. There are some pretty good study resources on IG and content creators are very nice in helping you improve with your studying. At least, that happened to me. I’m not saying that they’re your teacher; but if you’re posting yourself speaking [like I do], writing, or notes, they’ll give you tips and correct it for you. Again, I’m just speaking from experience. A lady even DM’d me asking if I could teacher her. I’m still learning myself, so I’m not in any position to teach anyone Korean. At least, not yet.
I’ve decided that I’m still slacking a bit. I study Mon & Wed with my one of my fave, Joytion; Tues & Thurs with Bom [I think we’re becoming good friends; Tues & Fri with Anne [she’s so adorable]; and sometimes I study with Kim [depending on schedule]. I miss studying with Doo [my best bud]. My tutoring isn’t a problem. I feel comfort with them to where I can speak freely and comfortably, especially with Doo and Joytion. However, when I’m studying alone or practicing my speaking, I speak hella slow. lol. Like I have to really think about what I want to say because it won’t flow out naturally. ughhhhh. That’s so annoying to me.
I have a notebook where I schedule my study seshs, a different notebook for my eggbun education’s words I know/don’t know, and I’m also studying the Intergrated Korean, Using Korean, TTMIK level 2, Colloquial Korean, and Korean Grammar In Use books to study. I don’t study them all in the same day because I don’t want to overload my brain like last time. I’m also going to incorporate a time when I’m studying Korean YouTube lessons because I’ve been making it a habit to watch dramas and listening to some Kpop songs [Monsta X, BTS, Winner, NCT, etc].
I also need to practice Korean typing, so I’m not heavily relying on keyboard stickers when I’m using my desktop. My laptop/tablet has the stickers and its easy for me to type on my phone’s keyboard. However, Big Bertha [my desktop] has the option of me typing in Korea via touchscreen, but I don’t like using my touchscreen. Sooooooooo, back to using that tadak tadak website.
I have 10 months for now to reach my goal of being at level 3 in Korean. I really hope that I reach my goal by then or before then. My 2nd goal is traveling to Korea. I do see that happening this year since I didn’t get to do it last year. I’m excited about it. I don’t even care if I only stay for 3-4 days. I just want to go and live the experience.
Welp, that’s all for today.
