I'm really disappointed in myself. I am leaving for Seoul in less than two weeks and I still can not hold a conversation. I've failed not only myself, but also you. I've had so much school work to do, including writing a paper on Cochlear Implants, exams, etc. Then I had my part time job. And the last few weeks with the American holidays have thrown me out of whack.

As the school semester comes to an end, it feels right to temporarily take a break from blogging about the language.

Here's what's coming up for me:

Cochlear Implant paper (2000-2500 words)
Microeconomics Exam
Financial Accounting Exam
Packing for South Korea
Packing for California

Oh yeah, I'm moving to California in January 2013. As you can see, I really can't make time to personally learn the Hangul, but I have a better chance of getting a class on Korean Language in California than in Florida.  My current major is Management Information Systems (M.I.S.) in the College of Business. I've been the one to start something, but almost never finish it.

This blog has been proof of that. My goal was to learn enough Hangul to communicate well when I visit South Korea. I failed.

I wish to try again next semester, maybe picking up where I left off, or just generally reviewing what I've learned if I've managed to snag a Korean class. I've greatly improved in my time management skills when it comes to doing assignments, but I really need to improve more because this goal I set for myself wasn't achieved.

As of now, this will be my last month of posting this year. (Ha ha).

I really wish the best for you students, if you are one, and I will try harder to achieve my goal next year that I didn't achieve this year.

And I hope my trip to California will be a smooth one. I'll be moving to the Los Angeles area, so if you are around that area, drop a comment and I'll be sure to meet with you!

Happy Holidays everyone. :)


  1. If it makes you feel any better, I had Spanish classes for six years and still couldn't hold a conversation--though I could understand one being spoken around me.

    I hope your trip to Korea and move to California go well. Please stay in touch, the East Coast will not be the same without you!

  2. Sometimes the best way to learn a language is to be submersed in it. Although you may not be able to hold a conversation in the language, I bet once you're in Korea and you're surrounded by the language, you'll actually be able to understand and communicate more than you thought! Good luck with your trip, and also your move to the West Coast!
