I see that I usually don’t publish more than once each month, which is kind of sad because I really want to post at least 5 times each month. Anyways, I finally returned home after five months in Korea and I’m feeling quite a jet-lag. Despite being disappointed to have remained in the 2nd level of Korean at Ewha, by the end of the semester I still saw a lot of improvement in speaking and writing (the 2 skills that are always hard to develop for self-learners). I also got a new obsession…with learning hanja, I don’t know why or how but I got really interested in it so I bought two books to learn hanja.
My new challenge is seeing how do I go back to study by myself and balance that new study schedule with studying for the GRE and starting my Gilman Scholarship follow-up project. I also have 18 credits for the fall semester (;A;) (hopefully that will go down by 3-6 credits…stress hopefully) so I need to come up with a study schedule for the semester. It seems that studying Korean will be quite limited till the end of the year so my goal is to be able to continually study everyday for at least half an hour.
Anyways, during my stay in Korea I bought a lot of books so I think I’m going to post a picture of them here. I also hope to make a review for both the Ewha Korean textbook and Integrated Korean Beginning 1. Well, that’s it for now.
