[Korean Audioblog] 여유 찾기

https://soundcloud.com/hangukdrama/korean-audio-blog-2 omg my first Korean audioblog in 2017 :P I don't know if my Korean is getting better (or likely worse), so you guys can be the judge hahaha. (I think it got worse..) A rather productive morning where I read close to a chapter of the book. Feels good to have some me-time finally. Thinking of restarting the Special Series - Korean learners, interested to hear more about your learning journey too. Would anyone be keen to participate? :D Let…

Up the reading speed and stamina

Learning languages is really a lifetime pursuit :) Almost 10 years into learning Korean, there are still sooo many things that I do not know, and so much more I should do to improve my proficiency. Compared to the first few years of studying Korean where I really put in x10 effort, progress in the past few years have been rather slow due to the usual reasons (lack of time blah blah). The past year has been exceptionally busy and…

Korean pancakes at Todamgol

Yes, this post is dedicated to the awesome 모듬전 at Todamgol Korean restaurant (at Tanjong Pagar) that I've eaten thrice this month 😂.  I always zoomed in on the oysters jeon (굴전) in the middle, but the kimchi ones and the mushroom(stuffed with tuna) ones are great too. However, I think the quality can fluctuate a bit at times (I guess depending on the Chef?) but overall it's still good - different degrees of good lol.  Very good in fact,…

Dreams 

Hearing inspiring stories of people around me who are moving closer to their dreams 🙂. I'm very happy for them, but feeling a little sad that I'm not doing much for my own dreams. Sometimes I can't quite tell what I really wanna do. If it's what I really want or what I think I want. 😂 Maybe the upcoming break will do me some good. I'm tempted to find my answers with a trip to Korea but I think…

Repetition in language learning

I have always been of the view that there is no such thing as a "standard" or "best" way to learn a language, given that it all depends on your learning style, and the stage of proficiency that you are at now. That being said, I've been wondering about the general effectiveness of repetition in language learning and how it has been working for you guys (if you subscribe to it). And if not, why. Personally, I'm not fond of…

Nothing new, but still a discovery

Uhh. I guess I shall just keep the part where I lament about the passing of time (last entry almost 2 months ago!) and the lack of time. Because, what's new? The past 1 hour has been the happiest I've been in the entire week, simple because I finally have some time to myself + enough motivation to sit in front of the desktop and read a bit in Korean. :) The first condition is already quite hard to fulfil…
