Finally I am back to my Korean class at UP Diliman. I enrolled at Korean extramural class 2. My first one was like a year ago. I actually miss going to school even if its just a weekend and what is more exciting is that its all about learning Korean.
It was not the 1st day of school last Saturday (Jan 16, 2010) but the 2nd one actually. I missed first the 1st session I was out for an earlier commitment before finally deciding to enroll. I guess i did not really lose that much on the first day as it was a review on forming verb into past.
I have not prepared anything for my first day to class but I think I was able to cope up with it. The lesson was about the use of past tense and numbers. I am really poor when it comes to numbers but that day…i got challenged with it. I have been doing self study for nearly two year now so how come I can’t focus on memorizing numbers. It’s as if I got some memory enhancers that day, before the end of the class I can say I am more familiar with Sino Korean numbers. The native Korean way of counting is another hurdle though.
Well I guess this is the advantage of going to formal classes, you are compelled to study and understand so you keep with the pace of the teacher. Not for anything else, being back to Korean class is something that I am so excited and happy with.
