For the first time in weeks. Not exactly “study” as in study from textbooks, I’ve outgrown that stage for now. Picked up the modern Korean history book again and continue from where I left off weeks ago. Was kinda afraid that my eyes will reject Korean (harhar) after not seeing long Korean passages for so long, but luckily I’m still able to read smoothly.
Feels good to be back in the right studying mode. Previously I was concentrating on Japanese and in between I was reading fantasy novels. ㅋㅋ
I’m highlighting less and less things per page, which is a good sign. There’s still so much I don’t know though. But I’m super glad that somehow I manage to remember new words quite easily, so I’m always progressing. I used to think (years and years ago) that it’s impossible to learn vocabulary (of a foreign language) without memorizing them, but now I no longer think that way. Even when I first started learning Korean, I didn’t think of memorizing.
Can’t imagine going through wordlists and those mini vocabulary cards, they just don’t work for me. I don’t have a good memory in the first place ><
Lost quite a bit of interest in kpop, k-music, k-dramas etc and considering the role they played in my interest in Korean in the beginning, I was quite afraid that I can’t find the motivation to go on. I didn’t study Korean because of k-entertainment, but the fact that they were a great source of entertainment, fun and learning material still played a great role. Nowadays I find myself disinterested in most dramas (hehe okay now I found some new hope in 무정도시) and also.. Korean. ㅋㅋ
In fact, I lack interest in most things these days, so it’s not really about Korean haha.
Just happy to find my pace again 😀
