Actually I shouldn’t be blogging. Poring over Korean grammar notes now. But have to pen (type?) this down before the feeling’s gone.
Sometimes I wonder how my foundation for Korean is like. For writing I mean. The only feedback I get are from my Korean friends. And I think they are too nice and kind sometimes. They will probably overlook the mistakes and think that I’m good as long as I managed to get the meaning across.
There’s no strict teacher who will point out all my mistakes and tell me that I can’t even get the basic stuff correct. Encapsulated in my own little world, I don’t have classmates that I can learn from or have some healthy competition with 😉
Hence, I’m a little apprehensive in attending formal Korean classes again. Especially since it’s in Korea. Where I’m sure the standard is going to be much higher and where the teachers are more stringent. Where all my classmates are prob serious in learning the language.
It’s gonna be really exciting and I’m looking forward to it! But part of me is just a little worried.
I can’t hide my lack of ability and I know I’ll need some re-evaluation of myself. Things have to be re-learned and preconceptions have to be broken and reconstructed. It’s gonna be tough, but I’ll work hard.
Self-studying has a disadvantage. 대충한다. ㅋㅋ As long as I sorta get it, I move on. oops.
After this summer, I can no longer
brag say that I self study Korean. 😛
so much confession in this post 😉
