3 In Korean learning journey (:

We’ve come a long way

Just spent the past 20 minutes on the train reading my own blog ?. Ok I didn’t know I could enjoy reading my own entries but it was a good reminder of how passionate I was about languages and it helps me not to lose myself and my ideals in all circumstances. 

We’ve all come a long way. We’ve all progressed in our own ways and it’s interesting to observe how the Korean language has woven itself in different aspects of our lives. I have friends who are studying / living in Korea, using Korean in their work etc. Even for those who have lost contact with the language, I’m sure the good memories and lessons learnt will remain impactful. ?

If you are reading this, would love to hear from you on the thoughts of your own progress and the role the language plays in your life. They all say that blogs (and comments lol) are a dying breed, please prove this wrong! Hahaha


I’m going to try out a new routine where I go home and cook after work for maybe twice a week. And perhaps have 30 mins to myself to read in Korean/Japanese or watch the news in the language. I’m not sure how that will work out, but … I’m just damn hungry and I’m not even home…

    What role Korean plays in my life? Too big I guess. And I am still hesitant whether this a good thing or not. One time when I was just fed up with myself after an awkward 2 hours of not being able to say even a word while Koreans were having a conversation. I just wanted to throw away everything Korean. I just wanted a break. A break I didn’t have for 2 and a half years. But then my phone was in Korean and the songs I wanted to listen to were all in Korean and I wanted to tell someone all that anger and sadness in Korean. And then I realized. 병도 주고 약 준다. I guess Korean is like that for me.
    Thanks to it I became more confident, I realized I can achieve amazing things if I put my heart into it. Although it might be hard. I don’t know. It is hard to write down what Korean means to me. I hope this makes sense. It doesn’t really make sense to me but I’ll just try to enjoy it and work hard.? good luck to everyone~~!!

    Your plan will succeed if you do something enjoyable in Korean. By news do you mean hardcore political news? News bores me to tears regardless of language but my Japanese still kicks ass because I consume Japanese media I like like talk variety shows and books
