This is a really really bad analogy but essentially what Genki has done to me haha.
Luckily I don’t mind pain xD
I actually just mean from Lesson 3 in the book there is no romaji and officially Kanji has been added. I was dying to get to this section fast but I didn’t want to rush the process. There is nothing worse than gaps in language learning (I would know my Korean has umm several) so I took it slow, made sure to review each chapter thoroughly before moving on, did the workbook exercises diligently, reviewed again and when I was 100% certain I knew all the content (understood it) I moved on and I had a little hiccup with Lesson 2 (those numbers!!!!) but it seems to be in order now.
Took a break yesterday to rest – was sick and I also just wanted to rest actually xD relaxing and taking a break is good for the mind anyway, so why not? ^^
Though I didn’t anticipate today’s events (not at home, breaking down in tears in a doctors office etc) otherwise I did plan to study the whole day, but back at home, needing a bit of cheering up and I actually am studying so awesome 🙂
Listened to the first dialog and woah I was like “Major jump guys…what the hell happened to the baby sentences” but in a good way, feel like even though they probably are little sentences (talking about what someone does during the weekend, movie watching etc) kinda things that would be said in a convo in regular daily life so that is cool, I got my phrases down so time for the meat of the language 🙂
This is so exciting. XD
＾ma current poison. Read. Review. Rinse and Repeat 🙂
Going to be a fun week 🙂
As for Korean I realized my listening is deteriorating. Forget the writing for now and listen, open your ears and listen ^^ since I am using the 4B book and the beginning chapter focuses heavily on listening I noticed I would flat out miss a few things, or based on accent I would misunderstand a sentence, but when reading it understood it perfectly fine. No issues at all.
I understood the content but would miss a few words! Only on the first chapter so maybe it was just that who knows or I wasn’t paying attention, either way it needs to be corrected ㅎㅎ
Anytime I feel language insecure I always head to podcasts not my books, very strange so I have returned to koreanclass101 for the Advanced blogs and probably a review of the Intermediate 1 podcast (its my favourite actually) <<< have that on my laptop though (which now works again…at snail speed though)
다음에 봐요. 행복하게 공부하세요. 홧팅 🙂
