The folks over at Nanoomi introduced me to a new application called Sundew and it’s interesting. Basically, you can ask all sorts of questions, and people will reply you to gain points and you can even direct questions to certain people. I’ve tried it out for a few days and sometimes you get valuable information, crappy answers and a good laugh at other times.
But the application can also be used in another way… ^^
Practice your Korean.
Similar to Twitter, it has a restriction on the length of your question (500 byte – around 166 Korean characters). However in Twitter, some of us may feel awkward to talk to other Koreans to practice writing and most of the time, we end up reading instead of writing. in Sundew, the platform is about asking and answering. It’s a great (and often interesting) way to practice reading, and to practice writing by answering those questions. In Korean, of course.
It allows you to choose your questions from either ‘Nearby’ or ‘Worldwide’. I joined Sundew using my Korean number and hence I can see only Korean questions when I click ‘nearby’. However, I guess people living in other parts of the world can simply type in search terms in Korean to get to the Korean questions.
Who says learning a language is just books and memorization?
