Listening widely

I was mentally going over vocabulary which resulted in the following stream of words:

이유 – 유배 – 배신 – 신문 – 문자 – 자금

유배: exile
배신: betrayal, treason

Maybe I should try to find a modern drama after I finish 기황후 (and after my exams) just to balance things? 😀

I think my listening comprehension has improved quite a bit, and it’s easier for me to “detect” new words when I hear them.

Just two more episodes to go of 기황후! I will make sure to watch them back to back since there is bound to be some wicked cliffhanger at the end of episode 50. I wonder if I will develop withdrawal symptoms when I finish all of them…

    “배신” definitely also appears frequently in modern dramas. So there should at least be some degree of familiarity when you make the transition into the present 😀 ^^
    I really like your word stream – such a great way of reviewing vocab.

    Well that’s something! 😀 all my vocabulary related to scheming and conspiring to conspire won’t be a complete waste then 😉

    It’s a bit nerdy, but a fun way to see how long you can keep going even if you don’t have an opponent for an actual game. Sometimes I find my self thinking “where did that word even come from” and then I look it up again to double check myself. It’s like the syllables just find each other… Like 환관 – 관심 – 심연 – 연기
    심연??? Really???
