I find it very hard to pronounce certain words in Korean. For example, I find it very difficult to say any word with ‘려’ in it. I don’t know why but my tongue just doesn’t make the shape it is supposed to when saying words like 기다려. I’ve tried practicing with my boyfriend but I can never seem to get it right. It makes me less confident when speaking in Korean. I guess it’s a stupid reason because many people have difficulty saying words in English.
Tomorrow I’m going to be meeting 5 Korean guys who all go to university in Glasgow and as Koreans do…they drink a lot. So today we bought lots of 삼겹살 and 12 bottles of 소주….I think I might die with that amount ㅠㅠ When I drink a lot I speak in Korean quite often so I’ve decided to study really hard today and tomorrow afternoon so I have some good vocabulary remembered.
I’ve decided I’m going to really push myself with my Korean speaking. When I speak my accent is so bad and it’s just a mess really. I’m going to keep talking in Korean (I always promise to do this but I forget or I get too shy). Time to change.
