Oops, sorry for the sporadic postings. I’ve been immersed in fantasy/mystery/thriller novels for the past week or so and I’ve taken to re-reading the harry potter series again (backwards).
I realised I haven’t been blogging much about korean these days and I’m straying from my initial aim of recording my korean learning journey! One year ago, I can study clock about 7-8 hours a day studying korean. I still remember sitting in front of my desk, with all my study materials spread around me. I was so engrossed in studying that I can get rather oblivious of things around me. It was an enjoyable process and I am one of those freaks people who loves studying.
But I am in one of those irritating bottleneck these days! Progress is minimal and slow but I try to do a bit everyday. It’s frustrating how my concentration span is dwindling and I find myself doing other non-related stuff.
Language skills get rusty if left alone for too long. Hence I try to do keep my brain well oiled by watching korean dramas and listening to korean pop – not much brain power is needed and I get to practice my listening skills too (:
I hope to get back to full speed mode soon.
Anyway, I’m back to using the Integrated Korean Series. It’s getting harder to find those books in library and I always borrow whatever I find on the shelves. Hence sometimes I’m doing advanced intermediate 2 and sometimes advanced 2! haha
I’ll probably finished advanced intermediate 2 and go back to advanced intermediate 1. I’m coping well with both so I guess it’s alright? XD
Anyway have you guys experienced bottlenecks in language learning and if so, how did you solve it?
