So I bought this grammar book at the airport to help reinforce my knowledge of Korean. By the way, I was able to have another dimension of interaction with the locals even with my limited knowledge of Korean!

I am very eager to learn more!

Today was the D-day. I was too anxious for my own good. I think I did well. I may have spelled some things wrong.

I hope I pass because I am keen on taking the next class and I am really serious about getting that Beginner’s Level TOPIK certificate!

We had our Green Belt Exam review yesterday. And as the day was about to close, they called me over because they wanted to share some good news!

There’s a very big sense of fulfillment knowing that the students were able to pass a very big exam.

It’s our fourth class session and we were asked to introduce ourselves with the five required sentences:

안녕하세요! <greeting>
