A journey ends & a new beginning

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!

J is picking up Korean again!

“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 μ„ μƒλ‹˜ 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.

I’m still here!

Dear readers,

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.

Regards,
J
