a #notserious post
I like looking at my blog stats, not really for the numbers, but for the search engine terms that people use to get to the blog. I was really happy when people started to search hangukdrama to get to the blog, instead of kpop terms “boy over flowers” etc. Throughout the years, the search term list has increasingly move from kpop terms to Korean learning terms and it makes me secretly very happy that people know of this blog / me as “the girl who writes about learning korean”.
hehe sometimes I get amused looking at the list, such as the one in the post title. #truestory
Agreed with what Guus from Yago Languages said – “people are nowhere as honest as when they talk to the search engine!”
So I assume that quite a number of people are seriously curious about how much I really study. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I’ve hence compiled a list of the top 5 facts and myths about Hangukdrama and her studying methods.
- She studies Korean hardcore everyday - no, you think I very free isit?
- She has super memory for memorizing vocabulary - I wish? In any case, I don’t memorize anything
- She’s actually a gyopo or have Korean blood somewhere along her ancestry. - nope not a single drop (Koreans like to say I lie to them -_-)
- She secretly has a Korean tutor and cheats us by saying she self studies - it self studying that impossible??! You think too much!
- She’s super smart - ㅎㅎㅎ thanks for the compliment I’m not sure I deserve that
- I do something Korean everyday - be it watching drama, listening to k-music, reading something in Korean
- I did study quite hardcore-ly for a period for a few months during the (beginner-intermediate stage) and I did spend hours a day on Korean
- I love to laze around and I can spend days just being in my own world. I don’t work as hard as you think I do.
- I remember vocabulary and grammar easily ^^ for Korean. Different story for Japanese.
- I haven’t encounter much difficulty in learning Korean. Nothing significant. The only time I actually remember finding something difficult was probably sometime in 2008 – I spent 2 days learning indirect quotation, and was quite confused for a while. That was the longest ever that I spent learning a grammar point. Other than that, I understand after reading it once or something.
hehe I hope that answers your queries ^^ And your curiosity. If you are curious about something else, leave a comment!
This concludes my #notserious post.
