I try learning what I believe should be a commonly used word, then listen out for it during the dramas. Rather than just focusing on the subtitles. It seems to be working. I worked out that 가 means go (erroneously because the dictionary says it means "end"), then 가다 was go and 가다가 was something like, I'm coming, or I'm going? But the guy kept saying 가 and kicking the horse, so... Anyway, I'm trying to puzzle out some stuff.

I tend to remember words which I've tried to work out myself better, so hopefully this will help.
I used to watch a French YouTuber who had learned some Korean. She made one, how I learned Korean video, where she recommended talktomeinkorean.com as a good resource.

I have watched that video. :)

I can only use a limited sub-set of the stuff on Talk to me in Korean, because this is a free and legal challenge, so I can't pay for the courses like she did. :( But they do have some free stuff that I've watched and downloaded the pdf's for.

I'm sure I wrote a post last weekend... hummm, age is catching up with me.

Anyway, I've continued to watch Korean dramas, 5-6 hours per day. I'm memorizing Hangul, and it is fairly easy to sound out the words now. I have no clue what the words mean, but I can sound them out. :)

Couple of conversations in French & Italian and I have started reading again in French & Italian. I stopped for a little while.

Brief (text) conversation with my Chinese friend, although apart from a couple of characters it was in English.

I wish I could learn languages other than programming ones. I did a little exercise in classification of languages I know. :lol: :ugeek: :ugeek: :mrgreen:

Wow. Some list. You've just inspired me to add something else to my repertoire.

Don't be too impressed, I've been doing this stuff for 30+ years, and I was using UNIX before Linus Torvald wrote his first line of code. :lol:
