wow I can’t believe that I haven’t update here for an entire week! That must have been one of my longer hiatus. Anyway, I have been busy for the past week. I’ve been spending the bulk of my time on my newly created Naver Cafe!!
As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, I signed up for a Naver blog sometime in Feb. I’ve been getting loads of help with my Korean and I want to reciprocrate. So, I decided to create an English Learning Cafe! In Naver, there are already loads of english-related cafes. Every Korean that I met are all trying to learn english (growth potential there) and some of the more establised cafes can have over 50 000 members!
But I want to differentiate my cafe. I was browsing around and I realised there’s a problem with most cafes. Almost everything is written in korean, members chat in korean… so what’s the point of joining an english cafe?
So, I try to encourage members to use english in my cafe. It’s a good chance for them to practice writing and I will correct all their errors. 😀
Most of the establised cafes are run by Koreans and hence this become another of my differentiating point! (:
Anw I just wanna help them improve their English. It’s really fun and I’ve been enjoying it. But I have a dilemma. I can’t possibly help everyone and answer every question if the number of members (and questions) grow! ><
I shall not think about that now. It’s a healthy and small group of 36 members right now (: I’m gaining loads too. Running the cafe forces me to learn linguistic terms like ‘transitive verbs’, ‘subject’, ‘preposition’ etc in Korean!! haha considering that I want to major in Linguistics in uni, that’s a really cool experience.
I need to juggle my time to leave some aside for Korean (:
