I'm taking full-time Korean classes at Sogang University. I started in the second level but after the first week I fell quite far behind because although I had the listening skills to understand I was majorly lacking in the grammar department. So I was sent packing to the first level. And I was all like "teacher, I want to stay in the second level, I will promise to work hard blah blah blah". But she was right, the first level was EXACTLY where I belong. Although it was a huge bruise to my pride, I knew I was in the right class for my level. And to be honest the first 3 to 4 weeks were pretty easy since I knew most of the vocabulary but holy shit does it ever progress fast. Now I'm into new stuff and I have to study every single day. We had mid-terms last week, on we'll have our 25 minute interview with the teacher this Wednesday, but I've prepared adequately and feel that speaking is one of my stronger points.
I'm in love with my class. We have three different teachers; a writing one for one hour, a speaking one for two hours and a listening/ reading one for one hour.....EVERYDAY! And to top things off, I think I have the best students in my class. They are fun and we always have a hoot. I look forward to my Korean class to get my daily dose of giggles.
Oh yah I got 97% on the writing component of my speaking test (if that makes sense) and 91% on my reading/ listening test.
I HEART SCHOOL!!!!!! BUT I STILL DON'T HEART HOMEWORK!p.s. bet you can't find my teacher!!!!!
