안녕~!

After a long time of following other bloggers who have been recording their language-learning journey, I’ve finally decided to start a blog to chart my own progress in Korean, and to spread my love for all things Korean.

Like most of the people out there learning Korean, I started because of Korean dramas. My first Korean drama was 가을동화 (Autumn in My Heart) in 2001. I went on to watch countless of Korean dramas and after watching my Nth drama 천국의 계단 (Stairway to Heaven) in 2004, I decided to pick up the language. I self-studied with online resources before going to Cambridge Language School for the beginner’s class. (Mainstream) studies took over as the topmost priority and unfortunately, the desire to learn Korean had then taken a back seat and soon completely abandoned amidst the tight schedule. In 2008, being bored with my (work) life and seeking some excitement, I decided to pick up Korean again. The long 4-year break from studying had taken its toll and I need to revise everything. From scratch. So in 2009, I signed up for Elementary classes at Singapore Korean School. Haven’t looked back since then, and I’m now at one of the Advanced classes. The passion for Korean has exceeded beyond dramas, branching out into the pop songs, culture and yes – Food.

Despite the long history I have had with the language, learning progress is slow (OK. I admit, it’s pure laziness and lack of determination on my part) and I’m far from fluent. Hence the need to start this blog. Took TOPIK (Beginners) in September 2010 and is waiting (anxiously) for results to be released. managed to achieve a Grade 2. =)

On a similar note, I hope to be able to be able to go Korea someday (yes, I haven’t been there) to play (and eat!) and for some true-blue Korean classes before I’m too old to walk.

If you happen to stumble across this blog, do leave some comments or drop me an email at koreanjjang12@gmail.com. =)
