Monthly Language Report Special: 특별한 MLR

Marsha’s Monthly Language Report: A Special MLR
Join in the language learning fun!

A special MLR collaboration with Constance for Instagram!
I mentioned in an earlier Instagram post that I might start an Instagram MLR thing going and here is the first one! :D It sure was hard fitting two people into the 1 minute limit, but we did it! Though at a cost of cutting out a lot of things we wanted to say, lol.

Subtitles are available in Korean and English.

마르샤의 언어 월보: 특별한 언어 월보
같이 재미있게 언어 공부를 합시다!

콘스턴스 언니랑 같이 녹음했던 특별한 인스타그램용 언어 월보!
이전에 인스타그램 포스팅에서 인스타그램 언어 월보를 시작하고 싶다고 했는데 첫번째꺼 완성! 두 사람의 얘기를 제한한 1분 안에 하려고 하니 힘들었지만 해냈어요! 하고 싶은 얘기들 다 못 했지만요. ㅎㅎ

한글과 영문 자막이 있습니다.

Korean Learning Journey

Challenging Myself Again – 49th TOPIK Registration

TOPIK
Source: SKIS

I initially wasn’t intending to take up TOPIK this year.

Okay, I guess I was kind of on the fence, and then decided it wouldn’t be wise to waste S$80 when I’m not sure I’d have enough time to study since I keep working over weekends and I haven’t been doing any studying since I came back from Korea almost 3 years ago.

But! I realise they’re all EXCUSES. I just need to firmly set aside time to study.

So… I signed up for TOPIK and paid the exam fee just 3 hours shy of writing this. Now that I’ve paid, there’s really no going back. I definitely have to study; there’s not much time left.

What is rest? Non-existent in my dictionary for the next two months. ><

Korean Dramas, Personal Life

K-DRAMA; 용팔이 Yong Pal

Yong Pal

온종일 일하면서 용팔이 봤다 ㅎㅎ
Watched Yong Pal all day whilst doing some office work.

It’s interesting at the start, but I got bored in between…
Now the end is starting to get interesting again so I’m good. xD

DailyBap Rating (for now): 3.5/5

Just wanted to update a little since I’ve been so quiet on the blogging front.
Is anyone even reading anymore? No one ever comments!
Everyone only comes here for my Yonsei KLI Q&A, lol.

Okay, time for bed!

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.

Korean Learning Journey

2016: Starting My 6th Year of Learning Korean

I was looking through my Timehop the other day and realised that I actually accomplished my Korean language goal for 2013 in 2014!

Unfortunately, there wasn’t much progress in 2015. Or rather, none that I can see anyway. Though one good thing is that my Korean friends have been telling me that my proficiency is still the same as before. Phew! :)

I guess I’m just never satisfied with whatever level of proficiency I’m at. One thing evident of all my TOPIK results is that whilst my listening is my strongest point, my writing is the worst. I hope to do something about that this year.

Whether or not my work would allow for that is another matter. T_T I had planned to read more last year so that my writing would improve, but work took up so much of my time that I only read 1.5 books! D: I really don’t want to waste anymore of my remaining youth working out of office hours; I need to do more things that make me happy! We’ll see how that works out too. :)

I hope everyone has a great year ahead and accomplishes all of their language goals!
