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.
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.
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.
I like naeng myun, especially bibim naeng myun.
Yes. I love it. I would like to go out there and live there for a bit.
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.
