Weekly status (D-210)

I know it’s only Saturday and therefore a little early for a weekly status, but I have to work all day tomorrow. This week was quite busy with both studies and celebrating my birthday. I have managed to do a bit, but not nearly as much as I feel I should. Oh well, let’s get to it:

Reading and grammar:
I have been looking at my new TOPIK books from TwoChois. When I have become a bit more familiar with them, I will provide more info.

Listening:
Primarily music this week.

Speaking:
This week, one of my LPs got sick on the same morning we were supposed to meet, and the other I didn’t manage to meet because of our schedules not matching up. I ended up studing law instead since I have a LOT to read. At least the cases are entertaining if not a tad puzzling (e.g. “it was not grossly negligent of the policy holder to not inform his health insurance that he was bald”). Next week I will have to compensate, though.

Misc:
Inspired by Sofie from sofietokorea, I have bought a subscription for the TTMIK News series. The first e-mail with articles and audio files should arrive in my inbox next week so I’m really looking forward to that. I will let you know how it works out 🙂

I think it will be easier for me to actually get around to reading widely when various articles are sent to me than when I have to find them myself, since it’s sometimes difficult for me to take time to just do it. I will still continue finding articles, though, to stick to the “article by theme” regime as well.

Are any of you going to the Korean movie afternoon at KU next week?

    Aww, thanks for “citing” me 🙂 I’m sure you’ll love studying with the TTMIK news articles. So far, I’ve spent 3 hours of my Saturday learning news-related vocabulary and practicing reading the articles out loud after listening to the recordings. It’s really a fun way to learn.

      Any time 😉
      Wow that’s dedication. I better up my game! I have transferred the audio files from my new TOPIK guide book to my electronic dictionary and now I’m looking at grammar from the new TOPIK prep book that I bought. The section is called 이거 모르면 떨어진다; that should keep me motivated…
