Language Learning

Skiving, and other Arts

I like to think all my students would benefit if they could convince themselves that their time in Cambridge was all one big skive – that back in the office they had left their jacket hanging on their chair so that their boss thought they were around somewhere, doing something, while they were in fact here, having a nice time, pottering about with a bit of English. 365 more words

Creating habits

This is a stereotypical post.

To make learning a language easier it’s better to make learning it a habit, rather than a chore.

제 한국어의 실력

안녕하세요 여러분, 잘 지내셨어요? 제가 어떤 주제를 쓰고 싶을까? 아직도 생각이 안 나와요…

오늘은 제가 또 다시 한국어를 연습하려고 때문에 한국어 모임에 갔어요. 제 한국어 거의 고급 수준이지만 아직도 너무 부족해요.

한국 분이랑 대화하면 다 말 알을 들었는데 대답은 좀 더 어려워요. 특히 한국어로 어떤 표현하고 싶으면 항상 맞는 단어를 찾고 있어요.

한국어랑 영어랑 문법이 완전 다르니까 좀 어려워요. 그리고 제가 2년 동안 한국어를 공부 안 했으니까 문법, 단어들은 많이 이저 버렸어요.

지금은 스페인어를 집중하니까 한국어를 더 높아지는 기회는 항상 있어요. 지금은 그냥 열심히 공부하고 아마 다음에 한국어 실력이 좀 더 높아질거예요.

그러면 그냥 여기에서 끝이예요, 코맨틀 남겨 주세요. 읽어줘서 감사합니다.~
