application for kgsp - study plan
Hello,i'm currently applying for KGSP undergraduate program,and since this is my first study plan i need some help and reviews. please help me, i really appreciate it.
Learning a new language is essential especially if we want to study in a non-English speaking country. Growing up in Indonesia, a country with a lot of cultural difference made me mastered three languages as I grew up. Bahasa Indonesia as my mother tongue, Javanese that I used when talking with my friends and English that I learned by watching cartoons and TV shows in English since I was little. I developed interests in Korean since I heard a lot of my friends talking in Korean and now that I'm applying to study in Korea.
Before taking the bachelor degree in Korea I will be enrolling in the Korean language training, so I need to know some basic Korean before I took off from Indonesia. I joined a Korean language course in my city that is about two hours long a day. I also join a free online Korean language course that is about half an hour a day. I also bought a Korean-English dictionary to improve my Korean and English vocabulary. I will spend 5 hours a day to learn how to write, read and pronounce Korean. Every week I also watch a Korean TV show and I noted some words to increase my vocabulary in Korean, currently, I have about 97 words that I took note of. I also watch some Korean YouTubers video with English subtitles and took note of it to developed more vocabulary in Korean and English. I also used a free language learning app on my smartphone called Duolingo to learn basics of Korean.
After my Entry in Korea, I will join the Korean language training and I will work hard to finish with a TOPIK score of 5. And I will make friends with a lot of Korean so that I can practice my speaking in Korean through daily chatting will also join a community that is open to the foreigner to learn how to work together with locals and do community service. To boost my reading and understanding in Korean I will change all of my gadget's language to Korean so that I will always use Korean daily.
Even though I scored 7.0 on the IELTS Academic Module I still have a lot to learn. I will also improve my English listening and speaking ability through communicating with other KGSP awardee and some International students that currently studying in Korea and to foreigners that I will meet.
Thank you for your attention
