These days my diet and Korean studies sit side-by-side (keeping each other company) on my back burner. I had high hopes of studying Korean by myself in Canada. HAH! Who am I kidding? I NEVER was an independent studier. Even in university I had to have a study group for EVERY SINGLE CLASS. Usually I would make friends with students who were more reserved and our study sessions would include me 'teaching' them the material -- it's how I learned best. Even when I was in my first semester of Korean studies I took pride in teaching things I already knew to the students who did know.
Anyways, this post is dedicated to my AWESOME Korean teachers at Sogang. These pictures were taken the last day of school about a week before I left Korea.
Our super cute and extra kind level 2 speaking teacher who will be leaving shortly to study English in America
The best writing teacher EVER! I hope she never stops teaching! She does an amazing job!
My level 1 speaking teacher. She's one hip momma of three who looks younger than me!
My reading and listening teacher. MY LEAST FAV. CLASS BTW (not because I didn't like my teacher, but because I always struggled with this class the most). After graduation she gave me a stack of homework for all the classes I missed during the semester. I missed a lot due to work. I wasn't very happy to have homework AFTER the semester was done. She told me I had to mail it to her! hehe
I never did take my level 2 Korean final exam even though I rocked the mid-term. The level 2B books were difficult for me to get through. I couldn't balance school with work when all the Korean material was new to me. I certainly don't regret not taking my final exam though since my intention of taking classes wasn't to get a certificate but to be able to communicate better with my Korea M.I.L.
I would like to walk across the Sogang stage one day and receive my level 6 graduation certificate. That's ONE of my goals in life ;)
