Korean Language Class

This has long been in my drafts. It would be it’s first anniversary in June. I have to publish this.

I never got to write about it, but I enrolled to a Korean language class in the Korean Cultural Center of the Philippines last May 2016. I tried out the Basic Korean first, as it’s always best to start with the basics.

It was okay at first, I knew hangeul and I already had it memorized. My only problem was the pronunciation. When our teacher taught us the pronunciation, it was like the light has shined upon me. What I thought for years as ‘right’ was wrong all along. Most of the Hangeul I knew were pronounced differently than how I used to pronounce it. It felt good to finally understand the difference of (o), and ㅓ(eo) as well a few other vowels I have been pronouncing incorrectly.

We talked about it in three sessions and then continued on to the common conversations and the grammar. It was fun, until we had too many vocabularies to memorize and sentence structures to follow. It became harder every session and, because I was still in school, it was harder to follow everything. I was tired most of the time and had more than Korean language to study.

But I wanted this so I did not give it up.

I had a hard time with listening to the CDs. Our teacher then played the CDs and let us answer the questions on the book. It seemed easy when you know the words, but as the lessons went by, they kept adding vocabularies we did not study — or I forgot. We had to translate what the voices on the CD said and I hated it every single time. It was hard, but I was thankful to have a lovely seatmate who always helped me with them.

I was able to survive the twelve sessions we had, a total of 36 hours. We had our graduation on the 20th of August and I was half an hour late to the graduation if I correctly remember. It was sad because we prepared a video and I was unable to watch it. We did win 2nd place to the video presentation/competition and won a 3000-peso worth of gift certificate to a Korean restaurant.

We were given a certificate and had our photos taken. We ate after the graduation ceremony. It was nice. The food was delicious and I had a good time with my classmates. We became closer.

Overall, it was hard but definitely fun. I had a hard time with the classes as I had school from morning to evening from Mondays to Fridays and Korean language class every Saturday morning but I was able to graduate. I learned a lot with teacher Kim and I thank her for teaching us a lot about Korea aside from just the language.

Today, I am able to understand a few sentences that I hear from Korean shows. I still have a lot to learn, vocabularies to memorize, sentence structures to permanently put in my head (their particles kills me).

If you can try learning another language out, I recommend doing so. It feels great to be able to learn and study another language and it feels like there’s a kind of connection to the country when doing so.
