I had a surgery on Tuesday and am currently going through recovery. Because of this I may be slow in replying and posting your information. I apologize for this but please still send things in as I will ALWAYS get to it no matter what! Thank you for your patience ^_^
I’m completely fine with talking about my personal life so if you’re curious just ask.
The “White Rabbit Forms” that people fill out so they can be found are all in English because that is my native language but not everyone can read English and I am worried that a lot of people are being left out. Can anyone recommend websites that you can simply copy/paste to…
Ok, so I’m quite sure I was very confusing when I asked for “Affiliates”. I think I even confused myself and I apologize for that. I will try to explain this again in a way that even I might understand ^_^;
(don’t forget to ALWAYS ask!)
I am looking for Tumblr blogs…
Please remember to “signal boost" this post by actually reblogging it :(
lifelovekorea said: After seeing your last commic. What are your thoughts on studying Korean? What is the most difficult for you? and do you think you have an advantage living in the countryside or are there downsides to it?
It’s been really really hard. The advantage to living in the countryside is that besides from my husband there is almost no one here to speak English with. The downside is the strong dialect here. It’s so different to text book Korean. I spend so much time guessing… like my mother in law will say something and I know the verb but everything else is so different. The other difficult thing… some what ironically… is that I’ve been so busy with the book release in Korea that it’s really cut into my studying time. I will have a book published in Korean in Korea but my Korean skills are so bad and I haven’t been able to study Korean as hard because of it! Life is weird.
The other difficult thing for me is that most of my work is in English. I’m writing in English, talking in English, and most days I’m working all day without much chance to even go outside. That said, when I do go to Seoul I am surprised at how much English is used. How cashiers will just immediately use English, when actually I am capable of doing it in Korean. So I think there are definite advantages to being out here where English is not used much at all. Also living in a Korean home, I’m exposed to a lot of Korean both from family and the TV so I’m hoping even in small ways it is helping me.
edit - one other hard thing I thought of is, in the countryside most people are really old! It’s really hard to know how to talk to them in the most respectful way. I envy people who are learning Korean in Korea at a university and are mostly just speaking to other students. That must be more comfortable. I ride my bike around and greet the old women and answer their questions as simply as I can, while being terrified about using the wrong level of speech. Not to mention they are using the dialect plus older Korean… I can barely understand anything.
