3 In Korean learning journey (:


Rediscovering my love for Korean novels 🙂

What better way to start than to re-read my favourite novel! It’s been 5 years or more since I bought the 3-novel set, and actually I think I’ve only finished the first two books, and was halfway through the third novel.

Seems like just yesterday when I was writing about how much I love these books. It’s quite interesting to re-read again. I still stumble over pretty much the same words that I highlighted a few years ago, but I’m also a much faster reader than before.

Perhaps it’s because I read non-fiction more often, but I do find myself being unfamiliar with a lot of the descriptive verbs and onomatopoeia that’s common in novels. Time to build up the vocabulary bank again 🙂

Listening to Sodagreen while typing this (and taking a short break from the novel). Feeling happy and at ease 🙂

Taking TOPIK again this coming Sunday. It’s become a time marker of some sort, reminding me that two years have passed yet again. If I look at things positively, I think I’ve come a long way to push my limits and take on different challenges. A less positive way of looking at things… I’m getting further and further from where I envisioned myself to be. That is something for another post 😛

Right now, I just want to immerse myself in the book and enjoy reading.

Till the next post.

To the silent reader, yes that’s you, maybe it’s time for a comment? 🙂

    LOL, that last line. I could hear you talking to me through the computer, Shanna. I have the exact opposite problem; so much of my written Korean is becoming literary because I read a lot of fiction and poetry. Have fun taking TOPIK! I’m sure you don’t need luck. 😉
