What sparked your interest in Korean language and culture? What interests you about the language and culture?

My parents are from Korea and I'd like to learn more about the culture and language than what I already know. I just recently came back from a trip to Korea and realized how awful my Korean is. I want to teach the culture to my kids in the future and there's no denying that it is part of my identity.

What level of Korean language do you speak? If you are a native speaker, please e-mail the Organizer to volunteer to help others learn. Thank you!

I'd say a mix between advanced basic and beginner intermediate? Since I learned randomly, people get surprised at some of the advanced things I know and the basic things I don't know. There was no particular order that I learned things in so I'm sort of all over the place. Just no where near speaking fluently.

What is your favorite Korean food?

I like naeng myun, especially bibim naeng myun.

Have you ever visited Korea and how did you like it?

Yes. I love it. I would like to go out there and live there for a bit.

What would you like to gain from this group? We will do our best to organize events around your interests!

That I'm actually not shy/afraid to speak. I am quiet a portion of the time because I choose to listen to people more than speak sometimes. I'm honestly better one on one than in groups since I end up accommodating to everyone in groups and allowing them a chance to speak to a point where I might not even get the opportunity to speak. It's just funny though when I do speak and people are surprised at what the "quiet" girl says.

Introduction

Korean-American "gyopo" trying to improve my Korean. I've been in LA for about a year. Enjoy hoarding miles/points, traveling and eating good food.
