I would definitely do my best



Hello everyone! this is my explanation for the given question:
Study plans to improve foreign languages (Korean, English, etc) required for taking a bachelor's degree course BEFORE and AFTER you come to Korea.

I would really appreciate it if you help and correct my essay. thank you ^^


I have been studying in a school where it's a must to speak English. Since elementary school, I have always conversed, studied, and practiced my English through written and oral tests. Thus I believe I am a good English user despite it being my second language. Though I'm sure my English is good, I will always practice it whenever I could. Up until now, I have been more interested in novels and poems; consequently I am sure it will help improve my grammar and vocabulary and it will benefit me in the future. As for my speaking skills, I have always been interested in music, specifically singing, so whenever I sing, I make sure I'm pronouncing the words and vowels correctly. If I don't understand the meaning of a specific word or a metaphor, I would search it up and understand it thoroughly.

I have always been interested in the Korean language since the beginning of high school. Since then, I've already practiced reading and writing the basics in Korean. I have also started to memorize basic vocabulary that's usually used on a daily basis. Since I'm very interested in music, I tend to listen to songs from all over the world - including music from Korea. Since I like to sing along to the music that I listen to, I usually memorize the lyrics by listening and then matching what I hear with the correct pronunciation by reading the written lyrics in both Korean and English so that I understand what the sentences mean. Thus, I get to work with my pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. Although I'm still not ready to converse in Korean, I will definitely try my best to learn the language.

If I were given the opportunity to study in South Korea, I will definitely do my best. This is automatic, since I have always been interested in the Korean culture since high school, and to study there will be such an honor. Upon my arrival in Korea, I will plan self-study Korean sessions outside of the given Korean language program in order to be advanced in the studies. If there are events open for foreigners interested in learning Korean, I will try my best to attend and learn from the people there. I will try to converse both in English and in Korean. Since I have been very interested in literature, I will also attempt to read Korean novels and poems once I have understood the Korean sentence structures, words, and meanings thoroughly. Of course, I will start reading children books and short stories first before moving on to complex novels.

Hello there. Welcome back here! I hope that you're having a great day. If you will, I hope that we provide you with critical writing feedback for your essay's improvement.

I find that, in general, there's nothing that is essentially critically wrong about your writing. Your essay is put-together and has a decent flow. My suggestion would be to ensure that your language delivery would be more flawless by essentially tapping into a more deliberate writing format with a denser structure. If you can focus more in having pauses with the usage of punctuation marks, then this would assist you in writing with more ease.

Try to simplify your sentences. Notice how a good chunk of your second paragraph was spent simply blabbering. Try to avoid this by minimizing excessive details that are unnecessary for your essay.
