We started studying with 이화 한국어 5 today! I really like the book! It’s much better than Sogang 5! More contents and the grammar points are introduced first! I also like the passages especially the 발해 봅시다 part where they give you examples on how to express yourself by using different kinds of sentence patterns. I just love it!! And my teacher told me that she thinks 이화 matches my style of learning.
I asked my teacher if I improved the past 2 months. She said my speaking skills is still the same since she thinks I’m already good in speaking even though I think I’m still struggling a lot. My writing improved!! She’s impressed that there’s not much corrections to do on my essays which I’m happy about! Yay!
I’m actually quite surprised that I can discuss topics such as education in Korea, current events, politics etc. in Korean. While I was discussing with teacher today I couldn’t help but be happy about what I have achieved so far. I know I’m still lacking in a lot of aspects but I’m slowly getting there. More perseverance and we will get there!
