Korean Class

My Korean Teacher
Some Students in the Class

For about a month now, I've been taking a Korean Language class at the Jeju Migrant Worker's Center. It's been a pretty good class for me. The level was actually way too easy for me, but the teacher spoke super fast and was a little difficult to understand. The best part was that she didn't speak any English, and she'd also use children's stories in class that I could break down at home then go to class and practice reading.

The class itself was a bit of an experience since it was full of mostly Phillipino and Vietnamese girls who married Korean husbands over the internet. The girls on the left in the bottom picture are from the Phillipines and the girl between Danielle and I is from Myanmar.

    the pic of you and your korean teacher is so sweet! I wish I had the time to learn korean. I can only understand about 60%, only goes one way in my head.. Happy Holidays!


  2. Learning Korean is one of my favorite parts of being here. It really opens a lot of doors to meet new people and to really experience Korea. Koreans ALWAYS appreciate it when you can speak with them in Korean, too. I'd suggest to everyone who lives here or stays here for a bit to learn it. Every minute of the hard work and frustration is totally worth it. Happy Holidays to you too!
