What triggers me learning a new language ? LOL. *ponders*
Learning a foreign language takes time and dedication, no doubts about it! Positively, it's self development. With all smiles, I am learning KOREANlanguage !
Oh well. My company had a new opportunity. As usual, I will be the one doing the presentation for the clients. I have clients from Singapore, Finland, China, Bangladesh, Dubai and etc before. All the time, we speak in English :) This time, our clients are Koreans.
A day before the presentation, slumber-lah ... not the 1st time doing presentations, went thru my slides and that's it! zzz
The next day, our Koreans client came. 3 of them, they looked very Chinese to me. They traveled all the way from Korea to Malaysia. Only one of the guest can speak English and he was busy translating what I said throughout my presentation in Korean. All I heard is "KILI KULU, KILI KULU, KILI KULU". Not understanding a word ! :'(
The following day, I bought a deal from GROUPON and signed up for Korean classes. All in all, 1 day @_@
I must say that I am pretty nervous attending classes. Not studying for 14 years, I panic for not having my stationery ... writting materials - rules, pens, pencils, erasers! Quickly I went and bought my supply and hubby bought me this LAMY mechanical pencil ^.^
Attended my 1st class and it was fun ! My teacher is Ms Su. 1st lesson was all about Consonants. Hanguel consist of 14 consonants and 10 vowels, totalling 24 basic characters. Consonants were formed after voice organs (lip, tougue, throat & etc). Vowels were formed after symbolizes heaven, earth and human beings.
A syllable begins with a consonants / 1 consonant + 1 vowel / written in square box / written from top to bottom and from left to right. My name in Korean characters 조이스 Joyce /사린 Sharyn I did revision almost everyday for 1 hour. And homework too! It's not easy, really ! X(
