Bunnychu's log (Korean)

Postby Bunnychu » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:07 pm

Hello, I haven't posted on a forum in a long time but I decided to do it now because I want to hold myself accountable for the goals I set.

Here's a short backstory of my Korean language learning adventure:
I made myself familiar with the Korean alphabet and some basic phrases at the end of 2016. After that because I changed jobs and place of living I didn't study much (or at all for the matter). I'd just read a lesson in one month :cry: ... a tad embarrassing.
Around September or October of 2017 I actually started studying it more seriously. At the moment I'm at an upper-beginner/ low-intermediate level, but I want to reach a high level of fluency so that's why I want to set goals for myself every week and complete them without any excuse this time.

Monday, April 16 - Sunday, April 22
This week's goals
1. Add in Anki the words I gathered in the last 2 weeks in Naver wordbook (around 250 words)
2. Finish the homework for my italki lesson
  1. Write 6 sentences using ~다가 / 6 sentences using ~도록 하다
  2. Write about a Romanian news article in Korean and express my opinion on it
  3. Take the test prepared by the teacher with ~다가 / ~도록 하다 grammar
  4. Memorize the words for next lesson
3. Write 2 texts and post them on lang8 for correction
4. Finish the last 5 pages for Korean Grammar in Use book (beginner to intermediate)
5. Start Korean Grammar in Use (intermediate level) and learn the first lesson
6. Listen to TTMIK Iyagi 1 and 2, transcribe them and add the new words in Anki
7. Listen to 5 TTMIK Real Life Conversation Beginner and transcribe them (they are pretty easy so I'm trying to finish them so I can move on to TTMIK Real Life Conversation Intermediate)
8. Everyday review 60 words (20 new)

Monday update: I underestimated how many words I have to add and how much time it takes to add them. I still have 80 words left. From now on I will make a folder in Naver wordbook for each day and at the end of the day transfer the words I search during the day. This should be more feasible than letting the words add up. ^ㅅ^

Wow, nice study plan. You are using similar materials to me (iyagi, real life conversations etc).

Based on your italki homework, I think we have the same teacher haha.

Hi, I'm also learning Korean and am just wondering which teacher you have. Am considering taking a few lessons occasionally.

Yeah, she is really good. I have been taking lessons with her for about a year. She has really pushed me along.

Wow, you seem to be making a lot of progress if you can already read kid's news on disabilities! Have you got any articles to recommend from the kid's news site? I think my level might be a bit lower than yours since I can't imagine reading anything like that!
