Time is a curious thing. It makes you forget, it dilutes emotions and feelings.
It distorts memories too.
Sometimes I don’t think I put in much effort, but when I look back, it does seem like I have put in hard work and hence achieved something.
At other times, I used to think that I put in my best (할만큼 했다) but in the end, it feels like I didn’t put in enough.
hahaha I am thinking too much again.
In any case, I have started studying Korean again, thanks to the books that twoChois sent me!
When I first looked at the book, I thought it’ll be really difficult since it’s about business Korean. However, I was quite surprised that it’s actually paced as an introductory book to business Korean and the passages chosen are not like insanely long, convoluted articles. Which at first I find disappointing (haha I like my books super challenging). BUT. Come to think of it, it’s a good thing, since what learners need is a bridging resource that allows them to get a basic understanding of business Korean – the convoluted stuff can be found online or in books anyway.
So thumbs up.
I was quite surprised at how I managed to work though the chapters with ease (I took about an hour or less for one chapter). Then again, my problem was never with reading but speaking and writing. I can read the passages, but can’t produce it -___- heh
Funny thing is that I already know most of the terms (in the chapters I’ve done so far). I have no idea where I picked them up from o.O
I’ll put the book at TOPIK Level 4-5. (:
Well, these are just my first thoughts on the book. Detailed review coming out … later. 😛
