2 In Korean learning journey (:

티끌모아 태산

Not in a blogging mood these days, possibly because I’m in the studying mood. I’ve been spending most of my free time either on k-studying or on dramas and I’m happy doing so (: Received the confirmation slip for the 30th TOPIK in April, so yep I’ll be taking the exam!

It seems like there will be ALOT of people taking TOPIK this time, especially in Singapore. This is my 3rd time taking the TOPIK exam (and hopefully the last) and I noticed that the number of exam takers each time increased by … a lot. haha. There will be at least 50 plus people taking the intermediate exam alone!! ><;; Quite curious on how many Singaporeans will go for the advanced paper! The last time, it was only me and another girl (I think), the rest are/looks Korean!

In any case, feeling very motivated to up my standard!! hahahaha. If I continue to be so lazy, I’ll get overtaken 😛 ㅋㅋㅋ Nah, in any case, I’ve been dedicating consistent time and effort to Korean studying these days. Some of you might have already seen the Korean Language Log I’m keeping, and I’m quite happy at the number of articles I’ve read in 4 days already!

In language learning, every little bit counts. Like I always said, there’s not shortcuts and your proficiency is a true reflection of your efforts. Because I don’t have the privilege of studying Korean in Korea, I work even harder to fill that gap (:

Good progress so far and I hope to keep up with it! Spending quite a lot of time familiarizing myself with all the advanced grammar too.

p.s. I miss Korea really badly.

    good luck for your TOPIK ! Self learning something asks a lot of self- determination and courage. But once you reach a certain point you can turn your back and be proud by seeing all what you have done. all your posts are very genuine and very informative for those who want to learn korean. You have done a great job already and i hope you will continue :).
