Taking a break

I should have posted this yesterday but it totally slipped my mind! I’m currently in the process of finishing my graduate degree, finishing up at my current job, moving to a new house, and starting a new job, all within the next few weeks. That said, I have a lot going on and will have to take a break from posting for a while! Expect the next post to go up on Wednesday, August 22 10am KST.

Thank you all for your continued support <3 Study hard!

Irregular posting schedule upcoming

Hello, everyone! I have no regular post for you today, unfortunately.

I will be taking my final grad courses in less than two months which means that I have a few hundred pages of material to read and various assignments and projects to get to work on. That means that the time I have to devote to language study and grammar posts and such will be necessarily reduced for a while (though I will try to write posts as frequently as I can!).

This leads me to a question for you guys: Would you like posts on study tips in general? Things like reading research papers and textbooks efficiently or reviewing effectively? Or… I am a foreign language teacher; my work and studies all center around understanding language and issues that surround it as well as factors that impact how one acquires language. Would anyone be interested in learning a bit more about language acquisition theory or things of that nature?

Have a great weekend, everyone~

Back on Saturday with more focus!

Sorry for another mixed post! I had an important guest the last few days and so was not able to write anything for today. Starting this Saturday, I will be more diligent with my posts. I especially want to get back in the habit of doing translations, so expect more intermediate and advanced level reading translations to come!

Thank you for understanding, and happy studying~

Study update!

I just came off of two weeks of grad school and just need some decompression time, so no regular post today! However, I would like to let you know what I’m up to lately concerning language studies, especially since I have a lot more free time now.

I’m back on studying Mandarin again, going over lessons I did in the past and working on getting my writing fluid again. I’ve busted out my Hanja cards, so that’s a thing, and one of my friends is going to help me work on reviving my French. And of course, I will always do some Korean-related stuff every day because Korean is my number one! It remains to be seen when I’ll get back to Japanese, but that will be in the works too!

Concerning content posts here: my next video will be on honorifics, as I said in my last video. I also want to make videos going over the conjugations of the three formalities I went over. I know I have text posts on those, but they’re very important topics.

Concerning new grammar text posts, I want to start building up a larger base of material, especially for more beginner/intermediate grammar points, because I know that that kind of material would be most useful to the majority of my readers. If you have anything in specific that you would like for me to cover, please do let me know!

Another thing on my list is to start making material on English grammar for non-native speakers. I’m still trying to decide if I want to make them more geared toward Korean natives or not, but I think I probably will. Especially because I’m fresh off of my graduate English grammar course, I’m ready to throw down some explanations!

I’ve got a lot I want to do, and I’ll try to make sure it all gets done. Just… not today!

Happy studying, everyone <3

Formality Levels / 상대 높임법

Finally a video on Korean grammar! This one is about formality levels, or 상대 높임법. I already wrote about this, but since it’s so important to Korean I wanted to start my grammar series with this topic.

You can read my post on formality levels here!

If there are any errors in the Korean subtitles, please let me know! These were actually a bit hard for me to translate and I was a bit pressed for time because I wanted to keep on schedule <3

Happy studying, all!
