My favorite posts by other bloggers

Like many of you, I also read other blogs. Some of the posts, I particularly like, and so I would like to share them with you by linking to these blog posts.

Z has published some posts about what the characteristics of a successful learner are as well as some really useful tips for people who study on their own.

Many Korean learners start out by thinking that there is formal language (존댓말) and informal language (반말). Easy-peasy, right? Chances are you’re going to feel like crying when you find out there are seven (7!!!) different formality levels. But despair not, the bloggers Bella and Blue have made a really good overview of the honorific system and spiced it up with video examples from dramas.

Self Study Korean
Keeping a note book can border on being an art in itself for many learners. Check out some of these notebooks and find inspiration for how to keep your own.

Acquiring Korean
Spacing can be a bit of a challenge when writing in Korean. Sometimes you need a space, other times you don’t, and sometimes it is entirely up to what you fancy the most.
Anno has provided a link for Naver tool in his post on spacing. Check it out and improve your spacing.

    Yeah it sounds easy when you think “Ok two different politeness levels…okay simple i can do that” then you start then your like “OMG! Theres so many what the hell? How am I gonna learn this?”
    But you keep going because you love learning the language 🙂 and love the site! The word of the day is cool ^^

      Exactly! And the fact that you speak in one level while the other might answer in another doesn’t exactly make it any easier.
      Thanks a lot 🙂 When I was younger I and my brother used to have a “word of the day” so that’s how I thought of it 🙂
