Working on the weaknesses

When it comes to studying Korean, my weaknesses are listening and speaking.

I decided to work on that.  Thankfully, I can pick up the Korean grammar format quite easily, yet I still struggle with speaking. I’m speaking at a slower pace than I would like. To help me with that, two of my new exchange partners recommended that I only speak in Korean when speaking to them. Problem? My vocabulary is so limited. I spent so much time on focusing on the grammar instead of increasing my vocabulary. Which makes it even harder to speak.

So…..
My goal is to work on that.
I’ve began writing in a diary to read it out loud as well as practicing speaking in Korean.
I’ve downloaded vocabulary lists and carry a small book with me to study my new words. 10 new words a week.

Listening~
I struggle with the listening, not because of the accent, but because I’m hard of hearing. So, some sounds, I can’t decipher. However, my goal is that I will get there. I’m becoming a bit more confidence with writing, but if I keep up with the speaking, I’ll reach my goal.

If you have any tips, feel free to share!
