최근 많이 문법을 배워 있어요. 역시 내 어휘를 자랐어요. 하지만, 가끔 그냥 조금 진행 어려워요. 왜? 몰라요. 생각하는 듣기를 계속 엄청 어려워요.
예: 저는 “Talk to Me In Korean 이야기하기”의 두 번째 에피소드를 (
서점) 이용하고 있습니다. 매일 이 주에 열심히 들었어요, 하지만 일부의 단어만 이해해요. ㅋㅋ.
그런데, 저는 내 팬들을 위해 배워요. 열정적으로 하구 좋아요. 어느 날 새로운 비디오 일기쓰기 할 거에요. 희망 나를 자랑스러워요.
다음에 또 봐!
나는 게임을 만들었어! 웹 서버 없고 재미있어요.
오늘은 행복해! 나는 천 말들 배웠어. 다음 월요일 나는 한국 대학교에 공부하겠어. 곧에 나는 더 말해.
today i’m happy. i learned 1,000 words. next Monday i will study at a Korean University. soon i will speak more.
책은 읽해요. Jho Low 나쁜 사람입니다! 하지만, 똑똑도 입니다. Billion Dollar Whale
그때, 내가 컴퓨터는 이메일을 많아요. 쇼핑 센터에 갔다. 먼저 내가 프로그램을 짓다. 다음 공부해요.
나는 저녁에 BBQ 고기를 먹어요. 맛있어요! 직음 다시 공부해요. 🙁
today i hit the 30 day mark of my learning journey and decided to commemorate it with a brief speaking exercise.
my accent and pronunciation are horrible but i recorded it anyway. hopefully i’ll laugh at myself later when i’m better.
here’s my script:
안녕하세요, 라이언입니다. 저는 fomo.com에서 설립자 있습니다.
hello, i’m Ryan. i am the founder of Fomo.com.
오는 한국어 배우다 저의 삼십일 입니다.
Today is day 30 of me learning Korean.
나 이백오십 남말 하고 조금 문법 배운.
i learned 250 words and a little grammar.
나는 한국어를 이년안에 하고 싶습니다.
i want to speak Korean in 2 years.
예, 이 비디오를 만들기 외에 더 많은 단어를 배웠습니다.
yes, i learned more words to make this video.
내 연구가 koreaninayear.com에 있다.
my studies are at koreaninayear.com.
according to my
i’ve learned 176 words and 5 verbs. real-time vocabulary
i’m bearish on Duolingo teaching fluency but just discovered one benefit of using the web version (vs iPhone)…
turning off the word bank.
since i’ve been practicing my typing skills with
, i can now [slowly] type out words and short sentences without using a keyboard helper. Hangul Attack
my current lesson plan looks like this:
morning: Anki flash cards (12 new words), 1-2 rounds of Hangul Attack afternoon: Duolingo (10-20 minutes) and “filtered” Anki deck with 100
evening: typing the words i learned into a spreadsheet (5-10 mins), Duolingo (20-30 mins)
still figuring out how to feasibly spend 3-4 hours /day on Korean without the knowledge leaking out of my ears.
here’s what i did in the last 10 days:
it’s worth noting i didn’t do this all at once. my first day of study was no more than 25 minutes. the next day, i read the Fluent Forever book for a few hours but spent just 30 more minutes studying Korean.
by the 3rd day and 4th day i dedicated more time, but was primarily making flash cards (~150 total) in Anki vs actually studying. on those days i mostly played with Duolingo.
on the 5th to 9th days i watched a lot of videos on YouTube about language learning, and only for the past few days have i been studying over 1 hour per day.
my goal is 2 hours of study per day, and to reach ~700 memorized vocabulary words within the next 60 days before embarking on grammar and a tutor via . italki
oh. i also launched a
language acquisitions is the most memory-intensive form of learning i’ve ever experienced.
, for example, it never felt like “memorizing,” just adopting new logic paradigms and learning to code learning how to learn.
this all changed when i started making flash cards. for my first couple days of study i limited myself to 6 new words, then 7, now 12. luckily, Korean has a lot of “
bus → 버스 coat → 코트 restaurant → 레스토랑
whenever i get a “fake” word in my daily deck, i’m relieved. whenever i get a color… i turn 빨간.
one thing i keep hearing on YouTube videos about language acquisition, is that to do it effectively you need to make it personal and you need to make it
i’ll add a third variable to this strategy: you need to make it diverse.
if i studied vocab all day, sure, i might hit my 700-1,000 word goal sooner. but it’s also exhausting to flip through 100s of flash cards.
to practice diversity in my studies i’m opting instead for:
vocabulary – 30 minutes /day typing – 10-15 mins /day grammar – 10-15 mins /day listening – 20-30 mins /day reading – 10-10 mins /day
approaching my journey by channel means i can “dabble” in Korean throughout the day, using different apps but also documenting key learning (in English + Korean) in my physical notebook.
we’ll see how my lesson plan evolves over time.
