My Korean Learning Routine

Leave a comment

I figured I’d list my Korean learning routine for the tens and tens of readers of my blog:

  • Wake up at 4:30 AM.
  • Grab some coffee, a necessary nutrient.
  • By 5 AM, sit down at my desk with my “Korean From Zero” book.
  • Using the lessons, I write down every bit of Korean on the page of the book.
  • I usually end up write 1.5 to 2 pages of Korean.
  • I have not been writing vocabulary lists, just learning the words as I go along, getting to review them as the resurface.
  • If words or phrases do not make sense, or I otherwise have a question about them, I write them on my mini whiteboard and ask my wife later on, usually after I come home from work. (I’m very fortunate, as my wife is from South Korean and speaks Korean natively. This is also a main motive for learning Korean.)
  • I listen to Korean in my vehicle, whether it be podcasts or news, etc. I still don’t understand a lot, but my ears are being trained.
  • When evenings, I’ll sit with the wifey and watch a movie, news, or youtube videos in Korean. I’ve learned not to continuously say stuff like, “What does that mean? What did he say? Hey! I know that word!”. But occasionally, she will explain the gist of what’s going on. 🙂
  • Before going to bed, I’ll get on Memrise, which I’m sure if your interested enough to read this blog, you have heard of.
  • That’s pretty much it for now. I’m just taking it slow and easy and I realize that Korean language, being so diverse from Western or European languages, will take me a lot more time to learn and be proficient. It’s so much different from Spanish, Italian, Esperanto, or anything else I have studied.
  • If you have any suggestions for my language study, please comment!
