I feel like my Korean learning isn’t going anywhere…
The problem with self-studying is that it’s so easy to give up because there’s no-one to nag you to do homework or to revise vocabulary.
I’ve been living with a Korean person for about 9 months now and my Korean ability hasn’t improved. At all.
Why? Partly because I haven’t made enough effort as I should have (no point in lying to myself) and partly because we speak English 99% of the time. I’ve only got myself to blame. Although, whenever my boyfriend sees a foreigner speak Korean and they have a ‘weird’ accent he will make fun of it. It totally disheartens me from trying to speak to him in Korean because I have a terrible accent and I can’t speak ‘like’ a Korean person yet.
However, after watching this episode of Happy Together with Fabien, Sam Otswiri, Sam Hammington and Robert Holley I decided I should make more of an effort with my Korean because these guys are just amazing. I’ve just started my Summer Holidays so I have enough time to read some Korean books, learn more vocabulary and practice speaking in Korean.
I am determined to improve my speaking first because I want to surprise my boyfriend with my progress when he comes back from Korea in September. Does anyone have any good advice on speaking in Korean?
