First Day High

I am back to school today.  It’s been a long time since i had my last lesson from school.  I enrolled in a Korean Language Class at the University of the Philippines (UP).  God knows how excited I was that i am 30  minutes early in school.

Most of my classmates are teaching English to Koreans, some will be exchange students in Korea and I am the only one who enrolled who treats it like a hobby.  As expected we started out with the basics like understanding the characters and knowing how to read.   Exactly chapter 1 in my Elementary Korean book.  I must admit i am bored at first because I know these things already but somehow the pronunciation part is what really helps.

I am looking forward on the grammar and structure.  I wonder what kind of schooling did my teacher has that he is able to speak and write well –and he is not Korean.

My first korean lines live:

안녕하세요! 제가 이름은 제인 산터스입니다. 만나서 반갑습니다.

Korean Class @ UP

Finally!  I got the go signal from 여보 to enroll in a Korean Language Class.  I have enrolled in an extramural class at the University of the Philippines.  I have so many reasons to be excited.  First, I am finally getting actual Korean classes from one of the most reputable schools in the Philippines.  Second is I will be back on school.  Even if its just once in a week…being back to school is something to look forward to.  Third is I am starting to realize this long dream to be good at this language.  This is like fulfilling one of my wishes last April.   I did not get 여보의 go signal the first time I asked so I am so happy to finally get it.

I am looking forward to the first class even if it means going back to basics like learning the characters and correct pronunciation.  I wanted to verify in the first place if I am understanding the lessons from  my Elementary Korean book the right way.

October 4 is the date to remember.  UP please welcome me! 너무 행복해요!

제인 파이팅!
