Sigh, my friends have received their results for topik. I decided to skip the topik exam 2 days before the paper because my master’s assignment came in. That was the only day available for me to conduct an observation before I fly off for my volunteer work trip.
Well, that being said, I have officially ended my Korean studies to focus on my master’s. I wish I could have ended it on a high by passing my topik. But well, life throws lemons at times.
Will I still update my blog? Yes, I do have some posts about Korea that I hope to write about.
Till the next post, cheerio!
After a 1.5 year semi haitus, I wonder how many of my readers are still studying Korean. Or have they moved on with their lives? And I wonder…
“Big Bang, Big Bang, is back again one more time, say no way, no way…”
Haha sorry if you are confused by that. That song just rang in me when I was typing about my Korean comeback! Yes, J is back (almost)! I am finally picking up Korean again, formally. Next week I start lessons again, not at nex but another language school. This time I have a friend studying together with me! (Motivated)
I flunk the placement test of the language school but decided to advance and not back track. Taking the test after studying for 1 hour and considering my Korean haitus for 1.5 years. I thought the score was still relatively ok (48/100). I totally died at the 30? (Or 20?) marks essay section.
The 선생님 advised that I should study the particles. Other than that, my present and past tenses were still some what intact. Vocab was quite a hit and miss. Oh well, target for topik next year! Hope I can finally hit it.
Sorry for the lack of posts! I was extremely busy these couple of months with work, studies and an influx of problems in all aspects. 😦
On a good note, I booked my holidays, not Korea though. I’ve a trip to Korea semi confirmed next year. If all goes well, blogging on Korean should continue after I settle the work issue I have on hand now. It’s taking away a lot of my time.
Thank you for your support and on the eve of CNY, I want to wish everyone a wonderful, prosperous and restful Lunar New Year!
