Hi guys, what have you all been up to?
Through TwoChois I came across an app called 끝말잇기 which is basically a game where the app will give you a word and you then have to use the last syllable of that word to make a new word. The app will then take the word you have written and find a word starting with the last syllable.
For instance 의사 – 사무실 – 실수 – 수결 and so on.
This is on time! If you fail to write a reply you lose.
There is something strangely addictive about this game although I have to admit that my memory sometimes plays tricks on me so I forget my vocabulary when the timer is counting down.
I have cheated a few times in the sense of thinking “oh no! Oh no! What to write? What to write?! Hmmm… What happens if I just add this ending?”
Does that count as cheating or as “constructively testing my Korean reasoning abilities” since I do look up the word afterwards if the app accepts it as one that exists?
I have started buying books for the upcoming semester. With the prices they are charging, I better do well or it will all have been in vain… So far I have bought for 2 courses: 5 books and 2 note books which adds up to whopping £309 / €362 / $483! And the best part: I have to buy for two more courses…
Now I’m happy I worked so much overtime over the holidays or I would have downright sat down and cried at the prospect of these expenses.
That being said I have still been moderately freaked out for about two weeks which in turn means that I have been focusing on these studies rather than Korean when coming home from work, which has frankly made me a bit sad…
