MISC; KakaoTalk Snow, Standing Egg 2's Reply

D335 011214; So the first snow came this morning in Korea, and it also started snowing (those white specks were coming down my screen) in my KakaoTalk! Mine is still tied to my Korean phone number, so I excitedly told my friends about it. xD P.S. The dog’s name is Frodo.

D335 011214; The Korean indie band I love the most. ㅋㅋㅋ 에그2호님 센스쟁이! 나중에 스탠딩에그 공연 다시 가야하니까 목 안 빠지게 조심할게요!❤️❤️❤️

Korean Learning Journey, Q&A

Q&A; Self-Studying Korean

diannlee:

hi. u r really self-learning Korean? i saw ur post which is about Korean Topik. ur score is great :p I just happen to visit here, I dont know how i came here. (Im a Korean girl). lol Have a nice day

Hi! Yeah, haha. It’s hard to keep a steady pace when it comes to self-studying, but I try to keep up by watching K-shows. ^^; Your English is great too, have you been studying long?

Korean Learning Journey, Q&A

Q&A; Are you in a class or do you self teach?

anonymous:

Are you in a class or do you self teach?

Self-study; I’ve never formally been in any classes. There was only once that I went for 5 two-hour beginner lessons (because it was on discount~), where we were taught to read, write, pronounce, and introduce ourselves. I was actually already too advanced for it, so I didn’t learn anything new besides having my pronunciation corrected and how to ask for discounts cutely. Ha.

Update: I joined Dae Han‘s Advance 1 classes in May 2012 (a month after this question was answered), but because their standard is a lot lower than the Integrated Korean Intermediate books that I’d been self-studying from, the class was easy for me. I decided not to advance into the next level after I completed the Advance 1 level, so I’m back to self-studying.

moriahdnfm@yahoo:

please continue. this is helping me with my Korean vocabulary as well! I live in New York City and I will going to Korea in may. I am a fan so please don’t make me cry!

Thank you so much for your support~ :’) I’m really glad this is helping someone else too!

I’m currently studying for TOPIK in April, so I’ve gotten quite busy. I’ll try my best to update when I can though! :)

Here’s an update specially for you. ^^

Korean Learning Journey

LEARNING JOURNEY; Pronunciation

starbutterfly replied to your post: First Beginner Korean Class Was Fun!

that sounds really fun! and yeah i think pronunciation is important in any language, too, so that’s cool that you have a teacher now. :) we don’t have any korean classes here though. ;A;

Yeah, haha. Hopefully after this, I won’t sound so awkward when I speak Korean. xD

Aww, TTMIK is still a pretty good way to learn though. The Korean Wiki Project also has audio files that you can listen and repeat after. :)

Q&A, Reviews

REVIEW; Rosetta Stone Korean

2h4:

seulongoppa:

Help?

My dad emailed me saying there is this really good Rosetta Stone for Korean offer and I’m trying to decide if it’ll be worth it to buy it. It’s all five levels at a decent price. Should I?

My friend Marsha has it. She’ll tell you~ lol

This is what I told my friends just now: “It’s pretty okay, just that I think it would be better if you already have a slight grasp of the language because it really just throws you into it without teaching you how to read or write and there’s no English translations or dictionary or anything like that. They do read it out for you and provide pictures though, pretty much the same way you teach a baby.”

I will give my proper review of it when my head doesn’t want to split, lol. Overall, I’d say go for it. The (3 months free) online services are pretty awesome and I’m considering renewing the subscription when it expires in two weeks. I just tried it for the first time just now. Also, I didn’t know there’s 5 levels?? The one my dad got me only has 3.
