Hello everyone, i am Luisa Fernanda I would like your opinion about my study plan about language learning.
please tell me if I have bad diction, spelling and if I am being arrogant or immature.
I like Korean, I have the motivation and I am excited to learn something new
Study plans to improve foreign languages (Korean, English, etc) required for taking a bachelor's degree course BEFORE and AFTER you come to Korea
Being my country Mexico, a neighbor of the United States, the English language is very important and even more so for the region where I live, it is a small city that receives many tourists that are mostly foreigners, so English is very important in the schools, I have received classes since I was in secondary school at age 12, until finishing high school at 18; I have always been a language that is easier for me to understand since I like it and the one I was exposed to since I was a little girl, I grew up watching musical series in this language and different songs that were fashionable, with this I practiced my pronunciation without knowing it. When I finished high school I studied an English course for six months that I could not conclude, but I left I decided to continue studying on my own with an application on the cell phone called Duolingo which I continue to use often, this app helped me in my vocabulary and in the spelling, after using it often, I realized that I could understand a lot when I heard people talking in videos or movies. I do not have international certificates to help me demonstrate my knowledge, but I consider myself to have an intermediate level, I can say for myself that I understand English when I listen to it and read it; I do not have much practice speaking but I would like to practice it with other colleagues when I get to South Korea, I am a very friendly person, and I feel certain to increase my level of English.
The first time I heard the Korean language was in a drama 6 years ago, through this, I could appreciate the language and the writing, the curiosity led me to learn to learn it, try on my own to look for courses or books, but there was no A lot at that time, I found some videos of a Spanish-speaking person living in South Korea, he made videos showing Korean, with his videos I could learn the basics, also by myself I searched in Google images the consonants and the vowels, there was an image that I explained the conjugations, I remember that in one day I learned to read and that in my school notebook I always got to practice writing, I also searched for the lyrics of songs in Hangul script and I learned them by heart, plus one of my hobbies in my free hours is to see dramas, in these I learned colloquial expressions, names of foods, cities, animals and things; In addition, recently I was able to get a book to learn Korean in PDF format which is for beginners and is aimed at Spanish speakers.
If I have the opportunity to go to South Korea to study, I promise to pass each topik exam until I reach level 6, I have the confidence to learn, applying some techniques that helped me when I was in my English course, as very well written, another technique is to read, I like manga / manhwas is another of my hobbies, I know that in Korea there are places where you can read or buy these, I would like to start reading them in my 4th month, but before, I'll start with books or stories for children, also looking for the movies that as a child I learned by heart like the little mermaid watching it in Korean with subtitles in Hangul. although I think the best way to learn is interacting with people, in the program there will be people of all nationalities that I am excited to know, with them I would like to form a friendship and with the confidence formed, make dynamics among everyone how to play board games , walking or watching movies, everything related to the practice of the language, with regard to writing, I would also like to acquire dictionaries and books about Korean calligraphy, I would like to have aesthetics in my writing.
Without a doubt, I like the Korean language, I have the motivation and I am excited for each day to learn something new, new words, new vocabularies, learn new experiences with all my colleagues and work as a team to acquire new skills and good times.
