I’ve been away for a while because I forgot my password, lol.
Nah. It always happen to me.
But, anyhow, my Korean studying has been full speed ahead. I’m studying way more. Also, I have the perfect language exchange partner, Doo! We talk everyday. EVERY…DAY! We do up to 2-3 hours of studying languages and culture exchange. I always enjoy it! It’s perfect for me because there’s a 10 hour difference, but it’s during the time I’m awak in the early morning [evening for Doo].
I learned how to say the date in Korean, which awesome and a whole mouth full [lol]. I already knew both the sino and native numbers, but using it to say the date and time was….wow. Like a little kid, I get super happy when told “very good. good job.” I’ve now know how to say the days of the week, months, and expressions without over thinking it. So, have a verbal language partner helps alot and I feel that you pick up on the language easier because you actually have someone talking to you.
Welp, I have to get back to studying. 봐요!
I had a moment where I got upset with mysel and almost gave up on studying Hangul. I had to remind myself the purpose of wanting to re-learn Korean.
I love the language, food, and culture. Even if, I never get to travel to Korea, at least I would have a little piece of its culture: the Korean language.
I am proud of myself because I’m almost done with LEVEL 1 of my TTMIK workbook. Yay, me! I still have some issues [not with the lessons] when it comes to my speaking the language or typing. I tend to be informal because I’m thinking American grammar format rather than Korean grammar format, which could be a problem for older Koreans. [They take their honorifics very seriously and I respect that.] I do forget that at times and often time, I feel like I’m learning two type of Korean languages…
Also, during my quest of soaking up some Korean knowledge. A person from my favorite app HelloTalk [I can’t remember who] posted their blog info for those who were studying or wanted to learn Korean. OMG! I loved the blog when I checked it out. It’s so organized. It has the different skill levels, grammar, reading, and etc. I was hooked. I love the reading because I read it out loud to practice my pronounciation [despite the fact that I read it super frickin’ slow]. I’ll add the link to my resource page, but its definitely a page to check out. The blog is called: Fun Korean [check it out!]
Now, if I could just find a site or an app that would help me pronounce Hangul better and faster, that would be awesome. If you know of any, pllllllleassseeee post it in the comment box below. Until next time….
