Days whiz by when you don’t take notice of time but hours crawl by when you’re subconsciously counting down to something. That’s how I feel at the moment, with TOPIK results coming out in a few hours. I’m not exactly obsessed with counting down to it, but it’s just in my nature to start counting down when you give me a fixed day/time. So if you tell me that I’ve a meeting at 3pm, I’ll be counting down to it too ><
A lot of things to do at the moment, but time is crawwwwling.
I think I’ll be in for a surprise in a few hours time, just that I’m not sure if the surprise is a pleasant or nasty one. Astute readers may have realize that I seldom talk about Korean these days and to be honest I’m putting Korean at the back of my mind for now, while waiting for …. something. ^^
Till 3pm KST! Cya.
Results are out! I passed TOPIK 6 but for the first time ever (out of the 3 times I have taken TOPIK), I feel quite… sad/emotionless.
I know that every TOPIK paper is different, but I can’t help but compare a litte. The following was my results for TOPIK Advanced exactly 1 year ago.
I MADE NO IMPROVEMENT IN GRAMMAR/VOCABULARY.
Okay, I’m really kinda shocked as I’m pretty sure that my vocabulary did expand (by quite a bit) in the past year and I did work hard to learn all that advanced grammar. But I only have my short term memory to blame for the grammar part, they just won’t stick in my memory ㅋㅋㅋ
쓰기 was kinda expected. I know I was writing rubbish in the compo. ㅠㅠ
Made some improvement in 듣기 and 읽기. Quite pleased with my ears and all that reading (done last year) must have helped lol.
kinda funny how I was totally happy about passing level 5 one year ago and saying how it was so unexpected and now I’m like so ambivalent over my level 6 results. >< Feels like I haven’t improve much over the year. Can’t complain about it cos I didn’t put in the effort anyway.
It’s likely that I won’t be taking TOPIK for the next 2 years unless I’m forced to do so. ^^
But the Korean learning journey is far from over.
I will be working hard.
