So, it’s been 1.5 week since my mom passed away and slowly everything is starting back-up. Today was my first day back at work and I’ll be continuing school next week too. While I can’t say that it’s time to move on, I still think I should try to return to a healthy studying rhythm. If I ever had one that is.

I made some small changes to the blog and I’ve been busy with some Korean side projects that are not yet ready to be released here. I replaced my Resources section at the top with a study progress section. It’s simply a list of my resources but with an actual completion figure + percentage. I’m a numbers guy, don’t blame me 😛

Just before all the chaos I bought a bunch of books and I still owe TwoChois a review of their services. In the meanwhile I also received Integrated Korean (Beginning 1 & 2). I wanted to have these because honestly, Sogang was kind of disappointing, and I heard these were better. I still have to look into them and figure out how my current level holds up against the book, but I figure I’m somewhere around the middle or end of Beginning 2. I will also have to update this in the study progress section.

Finally, I am going to reinstate the iTalki Lesson reviews. So probably a day after a lesson I will do a recap on it here so it will stick better in my brain!

  1. I’m sorry for your loss. I’m amazed that you’ve bounced back so quickly. She must had raised you an emotionally resilient person. I thought about buying Integrated Korean series but I didn’t because I read somewhere that they don’t have answer keys. But you have teachers at Italki so it shouldn’t be a problem. Anyway 화이팅!

      She was a very strong person too, so I had a good role model ^^. Integrated indeed doesn’t have an answer key. I’ll probably do a review on the textbooks some day and I’ll cover if it’s worth it or not without the workbooks / answer keys 😉
