3 In Korean learning journey (:

Long way more to go

HAHAHA omg I must be kidding myself when I say that I’ll be ready for TOPIK advanced by the end of the summer break. –.- Just downloaded the 17th TOPIK advanced paper and flipped to the 읽기 section.


Stumped at the first question.

I can see the big leap in standard between TOPIK 4 and 5. I need to work harder. Much harder. Get my basics right and slowly build up to that level. I can do it ^^

Currently at Chapter 16 in the Integrated Korean Advanced Intermediate II. Perhaps I need to finish Advanced II before I start looking at TOPIK again.

OH. And the essay looks killer ):

Maybe I should start off with the older papers. I get the nagging feeling that TOPIK is getting harder every year >.<

    I still have yet to take it but from what I hear, the difference is indeed great between 4 and 5. All 고급 for that matter. Let us know how it works out for you!

      yeah the amt of specialised vocabulary in the questions increased by a huge lot! Guess I have to read more online news etc to learn those vocab. >.<

    That ‘first question’ is really something! It’s as if telling me, “Thinking of taking the intermediate? Who are you kidding? You can’t even understand the first question, can you?”. It’s less encouraging compared to the beginner paper with friendly drawings of tables, flowers, books and chairs. Hehehe.
