Monthly Language Report #7: 새로운 시작

Marsha’s Monthly Language Report #7: New Start
Join in the language learning fun!

I keep saying that I would do monthly MLRs, but it has been hard.
This year, I’m really going to try and keep my word, whether by video or audio.

Subtitles are available in Korean, English and Chinese.

GENERAL; [Updated] KakaoTalk Open Chat with DailyBap

I wrote a post in September about KakaoTalk’s Open Chat function before, but it was only available in Korea then. Well, now it has finally rolled out to other countries! Shanna of Hangukdrama created a Self-studying Korean group chat room for fellow learners, so come join us to talk about anything related to Korea. :) The chat moves really fast at times so be forewarned that you’d be spammed. :p

Also, if you are using KakaoTalk and have any questions regarding learning Korean or KLI that are not in the Q&A section (do check the comments section as well!), go ahead and click the image below! I just might reply to you in real-time. ;)

Personal Life

PERSONAL; My Western and Lunar Birthdays

What a week of birthday celebrations!

I usually only celebrate my western birthday (5th October), but this year, I decided to celebrate my lunar birthday (八月廿五 or 8th August on the lunar calendar) too! It just so happens that this year, my two birthdays were only two days apart, 5th and 7th October respectively. :D

Korean Learning Journey

LEARNING JOURNEY; [9 Oct 2015] 한글날 Hangeul Day

Today, October 9, is Hangeul Day! It is a day to commemorate the creation and proclamation of the Korean alphabet, Hangeul, by King Sejong the Great.

Find out more about this very special day on the Korea Tourism Organization (Singapore) website! :)

I did a handwriting thing last Hangeul Day, and thought I should do something this year too.

GENERAL; KakaoTalk Open Chat with DailyBap

So a while back, KakaoTalk came up with a new function called Open Chat! It allows you to chat with others without having to give out your ID or phone number. Great if you want to keep your privacy whilst chatting with strangers!

I get messages from all of my different SNS accounts and feel that it would be easier if I could get them all in one place. Since majority of Korean language learners have KakaoTalk, what better solution than this, right? You will also get faster replies from me! …depending on circumstances, lol. (This is not a sponsored post, by the way.)

So if you are using KakaoTalk and have any questions regarding learning Korean or KLI that aren’t in the Q&A section, go ahead and click the image below! I just might reply you in real time. ;)

[EDIT 20 Sep ’15] Oops, it would seem that it hasn’t been released for numbers outside of Korea yet. My bad. I’ll update again when it is.

Taiwanese Dramas

T-DRAMA; 命中注定我爱你 Fated to Love You

好久没看台湾偶像剧了!最后是在去年6月看的爱情闯进门。一转眼就过了半年!我也好久没写华文了。有点陌生哦… 呵呵。但那是另外可故事。这部偶像剧还蛮好笑的。

看了前几集会伤心难过,但我相信结局不会不快乐的吧。一定要 happy ending!

It’s been so long since I last watched a Taiwanese drama! The last time was last June when I watched When Love Walked In. Half a year passed in a blink of an eye! It’s also been a long time since I wrote Chinese. It feels a little strange… hehe. But that’s another story. This drama is pretty funny.

I watched the first few episodes and they were pretty heartbreaking, but I believe the ending won’t be a sad one. It has to be a happy ending!
