I figured that it will be weird to do a full Korean-English meetup straightaway – Korean learners are awkward, Koreans are awkward, I’m awkward, everyone is awkward LOL – so starting with a meetup among ourselves (the learners).
Anyway it’s been a long time!!!
Everyone always ask the same questions, so here goes the FAQ!
Q: Can I join if I can’t speak Korean (well)?
A: Yes. We are all learning and we welcome learners at all levels. You just have to be learning Korean to join. Anyway this time it’s among learners, we may not be speaking much Korean… hehe but some of us do! lol
Q: What is the programme of the day?
A: Knowing me, it will be random and casual. No programme. Just chit-chat, chill, make friends. Topics may include: fangirling, going to Korea to study/work/intern etc, studying Korean, Korean dramas, Korean food, TOPIK lol.
Q: Do everyone already know each other?
A: Nope. As with meetup / groups, there is an “old crowd” but we welcome new people.. like really. Every meetup there are a lot of new people! Anyway since you read this blog, you already know me right? lol
Q: Can I learn Korean in the meetup?
A: WE DO NOT TEACH KOREAN. Please don’t come here and expect to learn Korean like in a class ok! Even the usual Korean-English language meetups I do are very casual, so it’s about meeting new (Korean) friends but none of us is ‘teaching’ each other a language, although you are free to do so among yourselves! It’s about having fun and also practicing a new language, no formal lessons or what not.
So… the event details!
