Learning Korean


My copy of Korean Made Simple finally arrived in the post! Duolingo’s really fun, but I do find that I’m wanting more writing exercises and more detailed explanations. (Eggbun is another fun one I’m trying and it comes with a Korean keyboard, which is definitely a bonus.) This guide’s been recommended by a few sites and so far it looks really good. Can’t wait to get started on the exercises. Has anyone else tried this one? What are your thoughts?

I also found this video really helpful for understanding the Korean alphabet. This video and this one are also very informative! WooLara Company’s YouTube channel in general seems fabulous for helping people understand Korean, so I’m definitely going to watch more of her videos. 

Is anyone else trying to learn a language? How are your experiences going?

April Books 2020

mini review (1)

April was a pretty good month for reading, largely because I’m inside all the time with the lockdown. I’ve been reading a lot of short stories and listening to audiobooks, which I’m really enjoying! Trying to blend genres, too.

Additionally, I’ve started teaching myself Korean, which I’m loving! I’m trying to do a bit of Korean everyday and so far so good. I’ve been looking into workbooks for beginners and English-Korean dictionaries. I got this one! If anyone has any recommendations, please do share! 🙂 

April’s covers:

How’s everyone getting on with their reading? Any recommendations from the last month? What’s everyone doing to stay busy during these crazy times?
