Thank you for the link
Evita, me voisimme joskus puhua suomea. Miten suomen kielen opintosi sujuvat?
I said we could sometimes speak Finnish with Evita but here would not be a good place obviously.
No other languages allowed.
Actually that would be a good idea
Maybe you use Skype?
Why Korean though, out of all possible languages?
Were I to start learning an oriental language it would probably be Mandarin Chinese or Japanese.
If I could get a penny for every time I'm asked this question
Actually the website that I posted the link to was a big reason, they have a very good teaching style and a very enthusiastic community. I couldn't find anything like that for Japanese or Chinese. Plus you don't have to learn thousands of Chinese characters because Korean has an actual alphabet. Later on I also fell in love with the Korean culture and their way of life (and the TV dramas!) but that wasn't part of my initial motivation.
Edit: Oh yeah, I was unemployed when I started this project, it was just something to spend the time on a bit productively. Now it's much more
Talking about South-Korean things.
Yesterday, a friend invited me to go and watch the movie GI Joe 2 (don't ask
) and I quite like the look of the guy playing Storm Shadow.
Haven't heard of him... But then I don't know many Korean actors yet. Remembering their names is proving to be very difficult
