14 In Audio Blog 말하기 연습/ Korean learning journey (:/ Seoul Life 2011

[Audio Blog] 한국에서 첫번째 오디오블로그~ ^^

hahaha is this my first Korean-related post ever since I came to Korea? 😀 😀

Lessons start tomorrow and I wasn’t able to sleep, so I thought I’ll be productive and record something~ Hope it’s nice to listen to LOL

Wondering if my Korean has improved a little?? I don’t know. I’m not a good judge.

Hopefully I’ll enjoy my lessons tomorrow. I’m really scared. hahaha I was too brave in taking on that Life Sciences elective in Korean. D:

From next week onwards, I can no longer say that I’m self studying Korean! tsk. I love the fact that I got to where I am by self studying. (haha please let me brag a little, since I rarely have any other accomplishments)

    WELL DONE on making it there where you are through the process of self-learning. Keep the posts coming as they are motivating me during this time in my life where I don’t know what to do. I started reading your blog not so long ago and I really look forward to reading more about the places you visited in Korea and what kind of curiosities you came across. 🙂

    I was just wondering, when reading one of your older posts you mentioned that you learn words by writing a sample sentence along with it. Do you find these sample sentences from a textbook or do you just google the word? I feel too overwhelmed when searching in Korean.
    I know for japanese there is a dictionary that provides sample sentences along with definitions and kanji, so wasn’t sure if there is anything like that in Korean.

    Thanks. Anyway good luck on all the subjects you are taking and the placement test that you have tomorrow!

      Thanks so much! 😀 Although we are probably in different continents right now, it’s nice to be able to chat with you here (:

      I get the sentences from the Naver Dictionary!

      Here’s the dictionary! http://endic.naver.com/
      you can type both in English and Korean. The explanations will be in English and you get Korean example sentences when you type in Korean~

    우와 역시 샤나!! 잘 들었어요. And I even understood all of it yay o/. It’s so awesome that you can speak naturally like this (of course you have all the bragging rights in the world ahaha). I’m still at the point where I have to write down stuff I’m going to say before I record, but maybe in a couple years I can let go of that crutch hehe. Good luck in your life sciences class! You’ll be great. ^^

    Huk! You sound good! I have an oral test where we have to speak for 5 minutes in front of the class..

    5 minutes! I can’t even talk up in front of a crowd in English for 2 minutes without stammering!

    To a beginner like me, you sound totally native ^_^. If my korean was as good as yours I’d be out doing cartwheels. Keep posting though, you’re an inspiration to many of us newbies.

    Just curious, why do you keep pausing after a few sentences?

    good luck

    우와! 한국말 굉장히 잘 하시네요! 진짜요!
    did you record it spontaneously, or did you write first what you will talk?
    it sounds so spontaneous! 부러워요! ㅋㅋ
    저도 한국말 오디오 블로그를 해요..
    지난 주에 시작했는데 2 오디오 밖에 없어요
    말은 좋지 않아요ㅠㅠ. 그래도 계속 노력 할게요!
    I’ve just started it this week, only 2 entries so far, and it’s far from good, unlike you, but I’ll keep trying.^^;
    시간이 있으시면 저의 블로그로 좀 놀러오세요~^^

    Your spoken Korean is quite impressive! And I grew up with Korean relatives and understood what you’ve said. I loathe studying but seeing how much effort you put into studying (and it shows) is inspiring, really.
