I’m proud of myself with my 한국어 studying and the progression that I’m making.
[Although, trying to memorize the Korean characters on my keypad is hard, lol].
I gave myself a deadline to where I should [hopefully] be able to at least know enough words, phrases, writing and grammar to have a basic conversation with no problems. Especially if I stay on the route that I’m currently on, then I could possibly level up.
So, 6 months from now, I need to get myself in order and step up my studying game.
[ah, so corny]. It does seem a bit hard when I have no one in front of me that I can quiz myself with or have conversations. The language exchange apps work, but time difference can be a bit of an issue. Like right now, its evening to night in Korea where as it morning to midday here.
I know that I can do this, opposed to healthy eating. lol. So, wish me luck!
I’m soooooooooooooooooooooooo mad at myself right now. I overthink. I over-study. For some odd ball ass reason, I tend to do things the hard way. Even though TTMIK (Talk To Me In Korean) is in my Resource area, I’ve never owned the workbook and study lessons until today….err, yesterday. I’ve always just watched their YouTube channel. Yes, they had PDF you could download, but I wanted the boooooooooooooook.
The reason I’m mad at me is because I went about this study thing, about 1/4th wrong. Now, I’m studying from a few of material that are so textbook, even Koreans don’t talk that way. I do, however, learn something from each material in way. Let dialogue is great in Colloquial Korean, Korean 1, College Korean 1. However, TTMIK, Korean 1, and Hyungseok Song [and etc.] explain the materials better and its easier for me to grasp. (The other books would still be used for reference points, dialogue, and vocab if needed.)
So, starting today (it’s 12:36 AM), I’m going to wipe the slate clean and start phresh! Instead of trying to cram everything into my head like I’m studying for Topik test, I’m just got to delegate each day! 3 days for conversation, 1 day for grammar, 2 days for vocab/flash cards. and 1 day for workbook studies. I think I can manage that. Whew. I think I can do this this. Nah, I know I can….try to. [lol]. Welp, I’m going to make myself a makeshift calendar or else this plan will go to bust.
My goal is to be able to carry a basic conversation by the end of December. I feel like if I’m dedicated to it like I have been x 2, I’ll be able to accomplish this goal. So, wish 🤞🏽 me some luck!
