So started off good this year. I started before the new year to attack talktomeinkorean.com and memrise again. It’s wierd going back to square 1 again but at the same time how many things I have either missed studying or forgot or never looked at. I think in the past I tried to use this site more on different lessons and both anki when I created my own decks and then memrise where I would pick and choose which lessons I would cover. What a mess.
The guy that did the talktomeinkorean deck in memrise deserves a big Thanks! What a lot of work he put into it. A deck like would be great if the team at talktomeinkorean would help out to fix some of the mistakes and add voice to alot of parts of it that don’t have audio. But in either case I find it extremely helpful. I always like the concept of SRS and would do decks myself. The one thing I noticed after a time of doing it myself is I would spend more time on creating the deck than actually using it.
Bad huh? But the reality. So there’s an entire deck for the talktomeinkorean series and I’m going to take full advantage of it.
I have I think settled on 2 new teachers in italki. It takes some time for them to get used to a person like me that is not a beginner and where I stand in terms of korean but they are very nice and hopefully I make using italki much more useful than 2017. It also adds up to alot of money paying for weekly lessons so have to better results than my 1st full year of using italki in 2017.
Dramafever has a new serious ‘I am not a Robot’. It’s turning out to be the 1st drama of
2018 that I’ll end up watching all the way through. The male star was from ‘God of Study’ which was a great comedy drama that I loved watching.
Olympics in Korea starting soon. I’ll have to see how and where they broadcast it here in the states. The wife and I talked about whether we would go over a year ago but as usual money came into play and we decided not to plan a trip to go plus changing jobs at the end of 2017 made planning to go to korea pushed to the end of line for now. But now we have to relook at possible time to visit korea. We’ll see later what we decide.
