I wonder how I can continue to study Korean while juggling with my would-be-busy uni life. Apart from the fact that i am taking a double degree (which increases my workload, lessons time), I would still need to spare some time for CCAs, MYlife etc. Currently Learning Korean is the main objective in my life, and most of the time I am just in front of my desk. (okay this week i am more slack) 😀
But the fact remains that my priorties got to change when school starts. I envy people who can major in Korean Studies, Singapore does not offer that course. ): And learning a new language is really fun, everyday you pick up some more vocab/grammer and you realise that you are beginning to understand more and more. Being able to pick up a few more lines while watching Korean Dramas, and hey! understanding more lyrics of your favourite Kpop songs.
That’s my main drive and motivation (: Sure, there are times when everything seems so tiring. but somehow I will continue to strive on doggedly. and hopefully one day, become a native speaker.
And actually, I was quite surprised at my own determination and interest in the language. 2 years ago and I would have told everybody that I wanted to learn Spanish and Korean was definitely out of my radar. NO interest in Korean Drama whatsoever and please, i dun even know who is Dong bang shin ki, shinhwa and se7en??? who’s that. hahaha
A few years ago, that was the time when Korean Craze was strongest in Singapore I guess. Where everybody scrambles to pick up a few Korean phrases and I was like ‘okay.. i don’t know what’s the hype about.’ and 2 years later! here I am blogging on my interest in Korean haha.
ohya and 2 years ago, I have NEVER in my life eaten any Korean food. I preferred western or japanese food. What’s 비빔밥? 삼계당, 볶음밥, 자짱면,냉면,갈비 all unheard of. haha I guessed i only knew KimChi back then.
and now,비빔밥 is my favourite food 😀
I guessed I changed quite alot for the past 2 years. (:
