Recently my language partner left to get a job. So I decided to leave my language exchange at Culcom in favor of an actual instructed Korean course at GNUCR near Gangnam-gu Office Station (Line 7). I’m pretty excited about the location, because its so close to me. I didn’t find out about this course until recently so I missed the deadline, but they kindly let me register late. I’ll start the course this evening. I am pretty excited. I hope I’ll learn more Korean. The course is 10 weeks and costs 300,000 Won ($300.00). They use the Active Korean book series, but this can be purchased at the school. 


Amateur Language Study Adventures

Yesterday I came down with what was probably Swine Flu and shortly began thinking and speaking almost entirely in Korean, which did not help me a great deal when I happened to find myself listening to the pronouncements of a Korean doctor late that afternoon, hiding my gaping mouth (through which I was gasping, slack-jawed, like an inbred country boy) behind a hospital-provided medical mask; lucky for me this doctor spoke flawless English, which she revealed by translating my high temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit without being asked. I was running a fever of about a hundred and one.
