오래만이에요!! long time no see (:
I’m feeling so bad for neglecting this space while updating frequently in my Naver Blog. (: But I haven’t been studying much Korean these days, so there’s nothing much to update here.
So what have I been up to these days?
1. Reading Korean Novels!!
I’m so proud/elated/HAPPY that I’m finally able to read full length novels, although I’m still going on at a snail pace. I can understand almost everything with the help of my trusty (is there such a word??) Nate and Naver dictionary 😀 It’s a great way to pick up loads of new vocabulary and phrases ~
Speaking of korean novels, I have been dying to get my hands on the korean version of Twilight (: I’ve seen New Heart and Eclipse in the korean mart, but they cost $33.90 each!
So I was really happy that my friend from Korea helped me buy the book ^^ She arrived in Singapore last sunday and we met up for the first time yesterday!! (: She’s from Busan, so she speak the 경상도 사투리 (korean dialect). It sounds different from Seoul speech but really interesting! I like the intonation alot. It’s special. I hope I can master it one day (:
2. Running my English cafe
It has now grown to 154 members ^^ haha answering all the questions has made me reflect alot on my knowledge of english. How I took it for granted. Looking at it from an objective viewpoint, English can be real confusing at times.
Goal setting time
I’ve realised that my korean ability is skewed. My reading ability is improving by alot, but when it comes to writing… there’s still so much room for improvement.
1. to revise and look through all my past notes – I just kept moving on :X
2. to concentrate more on learning grammar – I’ve been doing more vocabulary these days
